Southport Visiter - - Visiter Active -

CALL­ING all coast lovers – Sefton Coun­cil want your best sandy snaps for a spe­cial com­pe­ti­tion to help mark the grand fi­nale of Sefton’s Year of the Coast 2017.

To cel­e­brate the cul­mi­na­tion of a bumper year of ac­tiv­i­ties, they are look­ing for self­ies of peo­ple en­joy­ing the beau­ti­ful Sefton coast­line.

The pho­to­graphs will be col­lected to­gether and the very best ones will form a huge col­lage to com­mem­o­rate the end of Sefton’s Year of the Coast cam­paign.

Mon­tages will then be dis­played on some of Sefton Coun­cil’s most well known build­ings.

Cllr Paul Cum­mins, cab­i­net mem­ber for adult so­cial care and coast cham­pion, said: “Each year thou­sands of peo­ple come to our beau­ti­ful bor­ough to en­joy the coast.

“By mak­ing 2017 Sefton’s Year of the Coast, we have been work­ing along­side our many part­ners to show­case ev­ery­thing as­so­ci­ated with the coast – high­light­ing all the events that take place on this amaz­ing stretch of land.

“To mark the end of such a great cam­paign we want as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble to send in their sandy self­ies, pic­nic por­traits, sun­set snaps and more to form a won­der­ful col­lage to com­mem­o­rate the Year of the Coast.

“We hope the col­lage will be the pin­na­cle of a last­ing legacy to fu­ture gen­er­a­tions to en­cour­age them to con­tin­u­ally use and love our coast.”

Stretch­ing more than 22 miles from Boo­tle to South­port, the Sefton coast is filled with unique sand dunes, won­der­ful wildlife, wood­lands and art­works.

To get in­volved in the com­pe­ti­tion, sub­mit your snaps to their of­fi­cial Sefton Coun­cil Face­book, Twit­ter or In­sta­gram pages, us­ing #SeftonSelfie.

You can also sub­mit snaps to com­mu­ni­ca­tions@sefton. gov.uk.
