Anthony Walker #commUNITY event

Community Event

Archbishop Blanch School, Earle Road, Liverpool 7
16th September 2017 12:00 - 18:00

Merseyside's Police Commissioner is attending the Anthony Walker #commUNITY event today.

Jane Kennedy will help to open the community event, which aims to bring all members of the community together to increase cohesion, build a stronger community spirit and a sense of togetherness.

Archbishop Blanch School  in Earle Road, L7, is opening its doors to the local community for the first time for the event, which will feature live music, performances from local school children, arts and crafts activities and a range of sports tasters. There will also be a range of information stalls, while Liverpool Community Health Ambassadors Team will be present offering health checks and advice, and also offering therapies to visitors.

The Commissioner's team will also be on hand raising awareness of national independent charity Stop Hate UK which provides a 24/7 hate crime reporting line for all victims of hate crime on Merseyside.

This year, organisers have decided to hold the event in Picton as a key area where community and youth organisations and service providers can work together to help inform residents of services, support and opportunities that are available to them.

The event starts at 12 noon and will run until 6pm.

It has received support and sponsorship from the Mayor's fund, Liverpool City Council, Liverpool Housing Trust, local ward councillors and MSB Solicitors.
