Group member Karlee Matthews, from Runcorn, told the ECHO : "We met up last month for a Full Moon Ritual there was 107 women who sat together from all over the north west!

"We laughed, we cried and we went for a dip.

" Formby is a truly beautiful spot."

Karlee says the women went "to get together, but also for themselves".

She continued: "Everyone left with new friends, and everyone loved it."

The event was billed as a "sacred space for all those with goddess energy to gather and celebrate the fulfilling spirit of the moon".

The women who attended performed a full moon ritual, as well as wild swimming and meditation, and there was also a moon celebration and moon tea.
