Thousands flock to VPX event


VIDEO:THOUSANDS of youngsters (and some not so young) flocked to the annual VPX event at Warrington’s Victoria Park today, Tuesday.

A very long queue was waiting at the gates as the event, now in its 12th year, officially opened, providing free entertainment for young people from across Warrington and surrounding areas.

The brainchild of local PCSO Tony Spruce, supported by LiveWire and a host of other key partners in the community, including Cheshire Police and Warrington Borough Council, the free event will only take place take place twice in Warrington this year from 11am to 4pm, today and  next Tuesday (August 13), due to cut backs, a similar event taking place in Widnes on August 15 and to give the 100 plus volunteers a chance of a holiday themselves.

Tony, who received a BEM in the Queen’s Honours for his community work which involved launching VPX, was delighted with another huge turnout as queues started forming well before the official opening at 11am.

Tony launched the event as a way of keeping youngsters busy and off the streets during the school holidays.

He was joined at the official opening by local councillors Maureen McLaughlin and Les Morgan.
