For any of you that plan to stay and make a weekend of it, the alternative to Liverpool City Centre is our local area Crosbwww.sugarvine.com/liverpool/neighbourhood.../story.asp?...y Village has many bars to enjoy, or if you want a really good range of different foods try South Road, this link provides some details of eating places, however there are more than included, Indian, Tapas, Burger Bars, Pizza places, pubs etc., cant go wrong.

How big is the car park at the leisure centre and how long parking can you get?

Jimmystars, the parking is all along the waterfront in designated areas from Seaforth to Blundellsands coastguard station. The carpark at the Leisure centre is free all day you can park in all the surrounding roads as well unlimited, think this is probably your best bet mate.

However, there is parking in Brook Road East about 100yrds before you get to the ground. It is free from double yellows, and a bit nearer than the seafront.  Brook Road East is the second left after the Park on College Road. If you pass the petrol station on the left you have gone past it.  ;)

Tamara, there is loads to do. In Crosby we have a great walk along the beach if weather prevails! with the display of "Another Place" by Anthony Gormley Iron Men Statues. Short by car/merseyrail into Liverpool City Centre, can recomend the Albert Dock, loads of stuff going on there every weekend,  Liverpool One, Pier Head to get a ferry across the Mersey, there are also the Duck Tours, around the city centre ending up literally in the River Mersey, but think you might have to book that one, liverpool Museaum and Art Gallery in William Brown St., City Centre. In the other direction, there is Southport, a typical British seaside town, which has a large park called Hesketh Park, ducks, avery, all sorts of kids attractions, dont know if the Funfair is open just yet worth checking out.  Feel like a tourist guide!! Hope it helps. Let me know how you enjoyed yourselves.

Thanks very much for that Ragman it looks like there is plenty to do.
Will probably avoid Southport as we live next to the Coast.
I am really excited about Saturday, I'm sure it will be a great day. I am looking forward to being part of your community day.
