On Saturday 18 October 2014 a trip to Liverpool was organised arriving at Liverpool at about 11am giving at least five and half hours before having to board the coach for the return journey home. The weather was kind to us and it was unseasonably warm for the time of year.
There was no set programme with people doing there own thing when we arrived. For example a couple met up with either friends or relations whilst others boarded sightseeing buses for tours around the city. Mersey Ferries also do a 50 minute round trip taking in all the sights of the waterfront as well as providing a service to foot passengers and cyclists who wish to cross the Mersey. Albert Dock where the coach dropping off point is located is full of shops, restaurants and museums as well as the Beatles' Experience.
Not too far away are the two iconic cathedrals, the Anglican Cathedral which is reputedly the largest in the UK and the RC Cathedral with is round roof and wonderful stained glass.
As well as a good day out the opportunity was taken to use it as a fund raising opportunity and with the on board raffle and the balance left after paying for the hire of the coach and driver £455 was made to add to St. Mary's Roof Appeal. Thank you also Sharpes of Nottingham and their driver Rob for getting us there and back safely.
