Share your seaside memories

What does Lancashire’s coast mean to you? What are your memories of the North West seaside and the Irish Sea?

Will it be holidays, making sandcastles on the beach or paddling in the sea? Or perhaps you spend your time birdwatching, whale-watching or seal-spotting on the coast?

Lancashire’s Living Seas Project is hoping you will share your memories and experiences at its launch at Fleetwood Sea Cadets Headquarters on Friday 7 June from 1pm to 5pm.

Working with local organisations and businesses, the project will be organising lots of activities to appeal to people of all ages and visitors to the event will be able to get involved in taster sessions.

Children digging into coastal mud at a mud dipping event

In 2018, the Living Seas team, part of Lancashire Wildlife Trust, held 63 events, with nearly 3,000 participants, 1,870 of which were children. Activities included Beach School, seawatches, egg case hunts, rockpool rummages, mud-dipping, beach art and taking part in the annual Coastal Fair at Lytham. Events took place in Heysham, Fleetwood, Blackpool, Lytham and St Anne's.

Living Seas Project Officer, Eleanor Falch, said: “We’re hoping the lovely nautical environment of the sea cadets building - old ship’s bells and things like that - will bring back lots of nice memories of the seaside.”
