“Wirral is a fantastic place for people to live, work and enjoy their leisure time. I am extremely proud of the diverse opportunities available in our borough and I am delighted to introduce this five-year leisure strategy developed in collaboration with a range of partner organisations.


This leisure strategy is designed to help us deliver our ambition to secure a range of quality and diverse leisure activities for our residents and visitors to enjoy for many years to come.


In the Wirral Plan we set out the following pledge: We will encourage more people to enjoy the wide range of leisure, culture and sporting opportunities on offer across Wirral. We will listen to residents’ ideas and requests, and by 2020, will have increased access to events and activities to all our residents, regardless of age or income.”
