Merseyside Pensioners Association celebrated the Diamond Jubilee with a cruise on the Manchester Ship Canal. The occasion presented an opportunity to relive our industrial past and enjoy a step back in time; there was great excitement as the various species of wildlife - Canadian wild geese and herons in particular - were identified.
Amongst our members were Doreen Corbett, Margaret Rule and Linda Ellis. They were at times grateful for the covers that provided shelter from our British weather!
The generosity of AgeUK in providing part of the funding for the event is acknowledged and appreciated together with the kind and efficient help of Merseyside staff - special thanks to Chris and his team and to Jackie and all those that made our day so comfortable and friendly.
