THE beach at Haverigg and Millom’s sports hall are featuring in our archive pictures from The Mail as both places will provide fun and entertainment from tomorrow for youngsters during the long school holidays.

Haverigg beach is the backdrop for fun activities called Beach Life, a programme developed by churches across the North West.

The Haverigg sessions are from 1pm to 3pm Tuesday to Thursday this week and have been organised by Millom Baptist Church.

A spokesperson for the project said: “Drop in and join us at any point to play some games, build sandcastles or do some craft and it’s all totally free.”

If  the weather is bad, sessions will move to the church, in Crown Street, Millom.

As part of the project to give Haverigg better protection against high tides, the village was provided with a new play area.

The paddling pool and old play equipment went and a new play area was officially opened on November 3 in 1993.

Also hosting plenty of summer fun is Millom Recreation Centre, in Lancashire Road, which was officially opened on April 1 in 1988.

Its Summer Holiday Club is being held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from tomorrow to August 8. You can expect a different theme each week and activities including multi-sports, crafts, baking and athletics.

There is also a Bouncy Castle Madness session for those aged up to 12 on Wednesday, August 28 from 10am to 12pm.
