Young people aged between 11 and 18 in the Skelmersdale area are once again invited to come along to the West Lancashire Community Safety Partnership ‘Go4it’ events and participate in a range of fun activities that are all free to take part in.
The Go4it events will be held at the Evermore Hub (formerly known as Digmoor Community Centre), on the evenings of Sunday 2 November, Monday 3 November and Tuesday 4 November between 5pm and 8pm each day. Please note that the venue has changed from Skelmersdale Fire Station due to planned industrial action by the Fire Service.
As part of the 2014 Go4it activities we have the following simulators Alpine Racer Ski, Sega Manx TT, Striker Pro Sega and the Ferrari 335 game – so you will be able to enjoy a taste of ski racing, play ‘international’ football, race a motorcycle or drive a Ferrari race car!!
In addition to the simulators we will also have our ‘soccer cage’ for you to test your ‘street football’ skills, and you can also test your boxing skills with the team from Birch Green Amateur Club who will be coming along to provide a welcome addition to our Go4it activities. All of these activities, along with food and drinks will be freely available at each event so come along and be part of our exciting ‘free’ Bright Sparx Go4it events.
Dave Tilleray, West Lancashire Community Safety Partnership chairman, said: “The Bright Sparx Action plan action plan aims to reduce anti-social behaviour around this time of year and these Go4it activities are a major part of the plan. The young people can have a really good time for free while staying safe.”
Councillor David Sudworth, portfolio holder for Community Safety, said: “I am delighted that the Community Safety Partnership has been able to organise these fun events once again. These events have been really enjoyable in the past and I am sure they will be so again this year.”
Staff from Lancashire County Council’s Young People’s Service will be there to support the fire service staff and work with the young people.
Frank Robinson, Station Manager for Skelmersdale Fire station, said: “We want to welcome our local younger age group to the Fire Station and provide them with an environment which not only assists with reducing anti-social behaviour and the risk of people being hurt in firework related incidents, but it also provides somewhere that is safe and fun for the young people to enjoy themselves.”
The fun takes place on Sunday 2 November, Monday 3 November and Tuesday 4 November between 5pm and 8pm on each evening.
