Celebrate coast’s beauty with your sandy selfies
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.
