Fun on the beach

Saturday 8th July saw the St Luke’s church youth group and Bromborough’s Late Night Lock In join together for an evening of fun and fellowship on the beach at Hoylake. Various games were played, including two highly competitive games of beach rounders. The young people (and older helpers!) from each church were spread across the two teams to help get to know each other. Light snacks and drinks were kindly provided by St Luke’s.

Thanks to all those who organised and took part in what was a fun filled evening. – Alan Brown...
