Wat-er way to spend a sunny day!

Wat-er way to spend a sunny day!

All aboard!A group of carers struck lucky with the unusually glorious weather today as they set off on the River Mersey to discover the joy of watersports!

Jan Tynan and Maria Cook from the Liverpool Carers Centre arranged for a group of unpaid carers (who regularly access facilities offered by Local Solutions) to spend a day at the organisation’s watersports facility.

The day was organised as a way of offering respite for the carers who are often in demanding roles looking after loved ones with disabilities and/or mental health issues.

The party set off in the morning in canoes to explore the famous river as well as leading tourist attraction, the Albert Dock, and were guided by experienced instructor Andrea Doyle. A lovely lunch was provided and the afternoon was again spent on the water where some of the group experienced the very big and very fast speedboat!

Liverpool Watersports Centre aims to make activities and sports at the Centre accessible for all, in particular the hard to reach and vulnerable sections of society. For further info, call 0151 708 9322.
