2010 Annual General Meeting

63rd Annual General Meeting – Ellesmere Port – May 2010

A very successful 63rd AGM was hosted by Merseyside Branch over the weekend of the 14th -16th May, 2010, based at the Holiday Inn which is adjacent to the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port on the Wirral.

Friday evening saw an opportunity for members to meet informally together with a slideshow illustrating the current Mersey scene.

On Saturday morning a guided tour of the Waterways Museum was being arranged. The AGM itself commenced at 2 p.m. with an alternative activity for non-members. The AGM dinner was held at 8 p.m. with the after-dinner speaker being the very entertaining Canon Bob Evans MBE, former Chaplain Superintendent of the Mersey Mission to Seamen whose work caring for the welfare of Merseyside seafarers has covered almost 50 years.

A Mersey Ferries cruise on Sunday morning concluded the weekend programme.

Throughout the weekend the preserved coal-fired steam tug “Kerne” was available for cruises either across the Mersey or along the Manchester Ship Canal.  There were also several book and photo sellers present and an exhibition of maritime paintings.  Click here to access the vessel’s website.
