The sun shone beautifully, though it clouded over a little later, 2016-08-30 00.11.36 2016-08-30 00.11.26the decommissioned Mersey lifeboat was moored on the canal for fascinating guided tours and the firework display later was brilliant, as was the usual search and rescue display, complete with Bristow helicopter. To complete the day, the Red Arrows flew past on the way back from an event on the Isles of Scilly.

Thanks to Nik Bloomfield for the firework photos.
