Head of the Mersey update – 06/02/16

We’ve had another look at the forecast. An optimist might say its mellowed a bit, a pessimist might say it’s the same. With that in mind we’re planning to go ahead. We will, of course, continue to assess the conditions through the day to make sure that everyone is safe.

While I have your attention:

Schedule: We will be keeping things moving to make the most of good weather and reduce the time crews are on the water. Please support us by listening , and responding, to announcements.

Parking: The local businesses on Howley Land have agreed to let us use their car parks. However, please make sure you leave access ways and gates clear. There’s some good news for towers – I believe Persimmon have been working on the track this morning.

Kit: Finally, please make sure you have enough warm layers. Wind chill could be significant…!

Thanks for your support,
