Actually these tweets first appeared yesterday and I only found them late in the day. But they refer to an event today at Formby Books and I liked the feel to the video. Enjoy and why not pop into Formby Books as well.
School children from across Sefton including Formby will shortly be commencing their efforts to create a world record commemorating World War I.
Sefton CVS volunteers will be there with others to support the children's efforts.
In partnership with The Royal British Legion, Sefton Council are planning a mass schools event designed to commemorate WW1 on Friday 4th July 2014 at Southport Beach.
The event is registered with the Guinness Book of Records and our primary objective is to break the World Record for the number of people to congregate in the form of a RBL Poppy. (Source: Merseyside and West Lancashire RBL)
Southport and Formby Hospital Trust have issued the following statement.
Organisers of a steam and vintage fair have donated £19,500 to help patients who use the Medical Day Unit (MDU) at Southport and Formby District General Hospital.
A cheque for the money was presented to Chief Executive Jonathan Parry and unit manager Sister Julie Marshall by three of the event organisers, William Hunter, John Johnson and George Harrison.
“This is a very generous gift and will be put to good use in what I know is very highly valued unit,” said Jonathan.
The Riverside Steam and Vintage Fair is held annually in April at Banks, near Southport, and all the money raised goes to local charities and good causes. This year £37,500 was raised and altogether the fair has raised £206,885 over the past six years.
The medical day unit provides therapies and treatments, including chemotherapy, to patients across Southport, Formby and West Lancashire.
