10 years of the Speke Garston coastal reserve

It's ten years since the Speke Garston coastal reserve was set up (although obviously people used to walk there before) and there'll be events in early May to celebrate the birthday.

The reserve is a great place to walk.  I often pop down along Brunswick Street and then walk along to the Sailing Club.  But you can go further along, in fact to Speke Hall.

Anyway, to celebrate the birthday there are two days of activities.  One is a spring clean day and the other involves guided walks, talks and exhibitions.

On 2 May there's a clean up.  Organisers are looking for volunteers to join the Rangers and help litter pick or cut back overgrowth.  If you want to find out more,  is the person to ask.

On 3 May there are guided walks to Speke Hall meeting at 10 30 am and 1 30 pm at the Garston Urban Village Hall on Banks Road.  Walks will be led by the ramblers association and include  break for refreshments at the Liverpool Sailing Club.

There'll also be talks and demonstrations throughout the day at the club involving organisations like the RSPB and the Garston and District Historical Society.
