Last week the FireFit Hub team welcomed, and hopefully scared, 1664 young people and their families to the community Halloween event.
Mini devils and witches mixed potions and created homemade mummies in the under 5’s corner facilitated by Granby Children’s Centre, while in the main hall older ones showed off their best zombie shapes at the disco, carved pumpkins and watched in awe as Cigam Productions put on an amazing show once again.
Additional funding was secured from Liverpool City Safe, Merseyside Police and the hundreds of pumpkins and apples were kindly donated by Total Produce Liverpool.
The Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Anna Rothery, dropped by the Hub and braved the Cursed Courtyard experience performed by Altru Theatre Company. British boxer Natasha Jonas also joined the activities with her family and gave Freddy Krueger a run for his money during the disco!
Families enjoyed food from the Hub’s new Café Recharge but made sure they left room for the tasty chocolate apples.
“The best games and scary clowns, I will come again!” Shayma, aged 9
“We really enjoyed it, both adults and kids. Fantastic effort from the team – really impressed!” Kathy, parent
“Very good entertainment! Brilliant acrobats and clowns. Good space for people to come to, we’ve been both nights with the family.” Bob, grandparent
FireFit Hub’s annual Halloween event runs over two nights and encourages all ages from the community to get involved.
FireFit Hub is working with key partners on other community initiatives, including the ‘Join the Fight’ programme which invites young people aged 11-22 to get involved with free boxing and basketball classes and the Outreach programme working across the L8 area engaging young people in positive activities.
