There’s loads to see and do in Wirral this Autumn

If you’re looking for something to do this Autumn, you’re in luck, there’s a wide range or activities, shows and events to suit people of all ages.

Wirral Libraries ‘Wings Selfie Trail’

Wirral Libraries are hosting their very own Wings Selfie Trail at libraries across Wirral. Simply take a selfie in front of the wing artwork at your local library and post your angelic photo on social media using the hashtag #WirralLibWings.

There are prizes to be won for the best photos, including a Family Swim Pass from Wirral Council. Central Libraries will also be hosting a Wings Treasure Hunt for the chance to win an activity book and coloured pencils.

Birkenhead Priory’s ‘Winter Nature Trail’

Staying on the trail theme, Birkenhead Priory is launching its Winter Nature Trail from 1 November. We all know the Priory is the oldest standing building in Merseyside but did you know it has great nature too?

Allow Gilbert Greyhound, one of the Priory’s beloved greyhounds, to take you to the best sites. Younger visitors can also enjoy a Find Gilbert trail. There will also be a Children’s Nature Day on Saturday 4 November from 12pm to 3pm, featuring owls from the Moonshine Owl Sanctuary and an observational bee hive. For more information visit the Birkenhead Priory website
