King David High School Choir performed multi-cultural medleys to lift spirits and gladden hearts and a faith quiz also took place utilizing Liverpool’s Community Spirit Faith Wheel.

Cathi Wareing and Alsop High School’s Peter Bull talked about Faith 2017 to the large number of residents present.

Councillor Jeremy Wolfson said: “This was a fabulous uplifting event and everyone really enjoyed the performance by our young people. They sang beautifully and were fantastic ambassadors for their school and young people.”

The Friday Café, was set up using some of the Mayoral Neighbourhood Fund allocation for Childwall Councillors Frank Hont, Liz Parsons and Jeremy Wolfson. It has run successfully for more than three years and introduced a monthly community event on the first Friday of each month.
