MVS Plans a Merseyside Return


The MVS has been missing from Merseyside in recent months and the service is making plans to restore an operation in the region.
Vice Chair, Chris Todd and Port of Manchester volunteer, Francesco D’Ascanio who is a Liverpool Pilot, met with Mike Moran, Shipyard Director of Cammell Lairds at their Birkenhead Offices.

Chris explained the founding and brief history of the MVS, while Mike offered Cammel Lairds continued support and confirmed that the MVS boat station located at their Bidston facility has a safe home for the future.

Francesco said, “It was really good to meet Mike and hear that Cammell Laird has such a good community spirit. It would be great to see the MVS back in operation on the River Mersey.”
