Community Open Day celebrates Tower Hill and Shevington

by Emily Maguire

Tower Hill Community Centre hosted a special family open day on Saturday 11 March, welcoming more than 200 people from the local community who took part in fun family activities throughout the day.

The event was organised by Tower Hill and Shevington Together, a stakeholder group with representatives from across the local community. The main aims and objectives of the group are to offer residents the opportunity to access high quality community services, activities and support that meets their needs. The Open Day was a celebration of all that is special about the area.

The centre put on lunch for its guests as well as a series of fun, free activities including face painting, circus skills, sports and football coaching, boxing demonstrations, and drama performances.

In addition, representatives from organisations such as the Credit Union, Family Information Service, and Care Merseyside, were available to assist and advise local residents on a wide variety of different issues and representatives from the council consulted with residents on what they would like to see in their community.

Cllr Tony Brennan, Cabinet member for Regeneration and Economic Development, Shevington Ward Councillor and Chair of Tower Hill and Shevington Together said: This is a vibrant community, and the Tower Hill Community Centre is truly at the heart of it. It’s a place for people to come and have fun, but also, more importantly to get the support that they need. This day was a celebration of everything that makes this area special, its residents, its businesses and also the groups and organisations who contribute so much to this centre and help this community day in, day out.”
