Morecambe Bay Partnership continues its programme of events this Autumn aiming to showcase aspects of the Bay’s cultural and natural heritage through a range of talks and family workshops.
1. For those seeking a dose of feel-good nostalgia ‘Beauty Surrounds & Health Abounds : Vintage seaside fun at Morecambe & Heysham’ is an illustrated talk at Morecambe Library on Saturday 28 October at 11am by well-known Bay commentator and writer Bill Myers. Bill will be exploring the heyday of two of the Bay’s best loved holiday resorts, Morecambe and Heysham.
2. For October half term the spotlight is on the Bay’s birds. Wondrous Waders & Wildfowl is a creative puppet-making workshop led by Lancaster-based artist and bird enthusiast Hilli McManus. Taking place at the Exchange Creative Community, Morecambe, just a stone’s throw from the winter roosts of some of the Bay’s amazing and long-distance commuting birds, families will have the chance to discover which species call the Bay home and make a puppet of their favourite one. Two workshops are available Wed 1st November.
3. Later in November, the Partnership will be hosting a special free talk entitled ‘The Evolution of the Lancaster Port Commission’ at Lancaster Maritime Museum. This is a fantastic opportunity to discover the mysterious world of the Bay’s historic ‘rule makers’. Far from being just part of Lancaster’s history, the Port of Lancaster is alive and well, and currently residing in Glasson Dock. This talk, by Chief Executive Helen Loxam, will give an insight into the Lancaster Port Commission’s duties, responsibilities, constraints and challenges, and how they have changed, and indeed not changed, since its establishment in 1750.
