Charity Ice Hockey Match At Deeside In Memory of Bob Kenyon - 26th June 2016

A very special charity match will be played at Deeside ice rink on Sunday 26th June in aid of two very worth causes.  The Bob Kenyon Memorial Shield game will feature former players from the Blackpool Seagulls, Deeside Dragons, Altrincham Aces, Liverpool Leopards and Blackburn Hawks in a match to celebrate the life of the former Seagulls stalwart who died recently.

Bob Kenyon was a player for the Blackpool Seagulls from the 1960s and took over as manager in 1970, and was one of the driving forces behind the forming of the new Southern League. He won the Southern League coach of the year award on two occasions and led the Seagulls to two English League North titles in 80/81 and 81/2.
Bob was instrumental in orchestrating the Seagulls’ campaigns in the Heineken League period and only stepped down in 1988 when the owners of the Pleasure Beach arena cut the team’s funding, forcing them to drop out of import hockey.  Kenyon’s influence continued, however, as the Seagulls carried on playing in the English Leagues until 1993 when the team moved to Blackburn. Even now, the Kenyon legacy continues as new generations of players and coaches around the North West benefit from those who had his coaching and support.     

The event is being organised by Bob’s son Darryl Kenyon who played in goal for the Seagulls and whose own daughter Jennifer is herself a promising junior netminder.           

The match faces off at 4pm and admission is £2 per adult with under-12s admitted free.  There will also be a bucket collection and raffle – any prizes will be gratefully received.

A full list of the players who will be turning out in memory of Bob Kenyon will be issued nearer the time. 
All proceeds will be split between the Christie Hospital in Manchester and Trinity Hospice in Blackpool, who both took care of Bob during his illness.

Restaurant Review - Give Kitchen, Liverpool L3 4BQ

Sadly the restaurant closed down after just three months.  It will be greatly missed as it was a wonderful idea.

After a wonderful visit to the Wilfred Owen Story Museum in Argyle Street, Birkenhead, Wirral, we went to Liverpool’s amazing Watefront to find Give Kitchen for some lunch.  I’ve been following Give Kitchen on Facebook and it is such a brilliant idea.  Their menu is full of the most delicious Vegan food imaginable and it is freshly cooked to order and so beautifully presented you almost don’t want to eat it.   We had Thai Green Curry of Aubergines, Peppers and Courgettes with rice and Falafael Wrap.  We also had some Sweet Potato chips which were delicious too. The portions were huge but we just had to try one of the deserts – Coconut Panna Cotta - and that was gorgeous.

There is also a shop selling organic and vegan products and Give Kitchen’s promise is to help homeless people every time you purchase something from them.   Definitely worth the trip and Liverpool is a vibrant city with loads to see and do.
