Hi, my name is Tanya and I am the Project Manager for the Orrell Trust.

It’s been a busy few months with lots of projects starting back up after the summer break.

Squashie play

Our two-hour soft play session for under 5’s is growing from strength to strength with new members joining every week. If you would like to come along with your children or grandchildren we would love to see you:-

Every Monday 9.30am to 11.30am

Cost: £3 for the first child and £1 for each additional child.

Jolly Soap Opera Mob

This is a group for young adults with disabilities and we enjoyed a trip to Southport theatre to see The Wizard of Oz.

This trip was beneficial to the group as they are currently rehearsing the play themselves. All are working really hard to learn their script, create the set and make costumes.

The play will be performed to parents and carers in December.

If you know anybody who would like to come along to our group,

Contact Tanya on 0151 933 2116.

Monday 6.30pm to 8.30pm for young adults aged 18- 25 years.

Maker’s Market
The Orrell Trust’s first Makers Market attracted over 20 stalls offering the community a wide range of handmade and unusual produce and gift items.

Over the course of the day, over 150 people came along to support the event and bag themselves some early Christmas presents.

The Market showcased local talent, with a lot of the stall holders living locally.

A big thank you to all the volunteers who helped out on the day.
We will be running more ‘Makers Markets’ in the new year – watch this space!!!
