Summer is well and truly here (despite the weather) and Formby Hub celebrated in style with a special strawberry tea afternoon.

Older people and carers from throughout Formby, Ince Blundell and Hightown attended the afternoon of fun, treats and entertainment which was held at Formby Christian Fellowship.

This was the latest event organised and hosted by Formby Hub, the community collective which aims to bring older people and  carers together in Formby, Ince Blundell and Hightown.

Ravenmeols Ward Labour councillor, Catie Page, has spearheaded the hub as chairman of Formby Area Partnership.
 
Cllr Page said: "The afternoon was a great success. We had lots of people from throughout our comm,unity coming together and enjoying a great afternoon.

"Formby Hub is rapidly gaining a reputation for holding fun community events. And that was our aim from the start with the intention of getting people out of their homes so they can meet other people and have a good time.

"We are working to eradicate loneliness and isolation in our community and this latest event shows that we are taking great strides in achieving just that."

Cllr Page said attendees were also treated to freshly baked cakes by pupils of Formby High who were even on hand to serve up the tasty treats.

Cllr Page said: "Year 10 pupils from Formby High came along with cakes they had made themselves, so we had even more goodies on the day. I can vouch that they were very tasty. The pupils were brilliant and I would like to thank the school for getting involved.

"Special thanks must also go to Formby Project's Befriending Services, Jean Jones and all of the volunteers from the Luncheon Club who came along to set up and make sure the event was a success.

"Bob Jones needs special thanks for designing the brilliant posters.

"Austin the DJ kept us all entertained and Tesco's community officer Nikki Benson was brilliant as always.

"And as usual, Malcolm Dyer and the volunteers from the Christian Fellowship not only hosted the afternoon's activities, but they also helped make it another great Formby Hub event.

"Formby Hub really is one of the most worthwhile community initiatives that I have been involved in. I am already looking forward to the next event."
