Well Sefton News and Updates

Get involved in the annual Santa Splash!

Well Sefton partner SAFE Regeneration, alongside community partners the Canal & Rivers Trust, has been running a very popular weekend canoe club from the community hub at its canal-side location. It has been a lot of fun and enabled many local families to try a new healthy activity and engage with the canal and surrounding area in a positive way.

From 10.30am to 3.30pm on Saturday 2nd December SAFE is ‘racing’ from the Eldonian Village to its Bootle hub in canoes as part of the annual ‘Santa Splash’.

Expect Santa suits, beards & tinsel as there is a prize for best decorated boat. Hot refreshments will be provided at the finish for all the brave paddlers! Everyone is welcome and limited boats and Santa suits are available on a first come first served basis.

Well Sefton lights up Oriel Road's underpass

The Oriel Road rail underpass, in Bootle, has undergone a major transformation thanks to the collaborative work of Sefton Council, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust and Safe Regeneration. Forming part of the Well Sefton project, which aims to create a better Bootle, the regeneration aimed to breathe new life into the underpass which had fallen into a state of disrepair. Read more about the project and see some great photos of the transformation here.
