Port Sunlight River Park

Port Sunlight River Park are delighted to announce that the official opening of the River Park Heritage Centre will be on 2nd April, with a celebration event from 1-3.30. This is World Autism Awareness Day and the Mayor will officially open the building at 2pm. There will be family activities and the Autism Together bus to see.

Andrew Jennings-Giles, our community education officer, has had his first school groups. A local junior school brought all 8 classes over two days on a walk and education session in the heritage centre. The topics were recycling, pollution, plastic pollution and fracking. A total of 240 pupils plus staff enjoyed their visits and the weather was fine. We will welcome Wirral Eco-school leaders for a meeting in March. Andrew is available to lead other class and community visits as part of the Heritage Lottery Fund project, Discovering Bromborough 3 and we are very grateful to the National Lottery Fund players for this funding, which will also fund archaeological excavations at the Courthouse this summer.

Forthcoming events are the Easter Egg Hunt Monday 22nd April 12-3pm and the Port Sunlight River Park Friends Meeting on Thursday 2nd May 7-8.30pm in the River Park Heritage Centre. We have several walks planned for the Wirral Walking Festival in May and our weekly health walks continue.

We have been shortlisted for two Royal Charted Institute of Surveyors awards. The photo shows the judges outside the new centre.
