I had the pleasure of taking the Mayor of West Lancashire, Councillor John Baldock and representatives from France and Germany on a tour of the Centre on Saturday. West Lancashire has been welcoming dignitaries from European countries and they wanted a tour of Martin Mere.
I took them to see the Mere, the roundhouse village, new area for the canoe safari, the beavers and they also had a private talk about the otters before having a lovely lunch in Mere Side Cafe and some free time before leaving. I do enjoy these types of visits as it is great to get peoples reactions when they visit Martin Mere for the first time.
The Easter holidays are beginning on Saturday so there is a lot of preparation work to do and the next couple of weeks should be quite nerve racking as we approach the launch date for the canoe safari – fingers crossed everything will be ready in time!
