Things to do over the Summer

With the school summer holidays in full swing, visit Knowsley Borough Councils   what’s on guide for ideas and activities taking place across the borough.  From events in the borough’s libraries (including the Summer Reading Challenge, crafts and treasure hunts), through to a programme of fun activities in Kirkby town centre, activities organised by Knowsley Youth Mutual at the OurPlace facility in Huyton, football sessions and park runs, there’s something for everyone!

Mums who breastfeed will gather in Knowsley on Friday 3 August for a special event during World Breastfeeding Week.

Open to all families the celebration will take place at 10:30am at Knowsley Safari as part of a local Big Latch On event to raise awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding.

There will be free entry for children under three, while Foot Safari is £8.50 per person and Safari Drive (Including Foot Safari) is £10 per person.

Knowsley’s Big Latch On promises to be a great event and it’s a really good way to raise awareness of the facts about breastfeeding. There’s lots of really good support for mums in Knowsley who choose to breastfeed from Knowsley Bosom Buddies our friendly breast feeding peer support service.
