MVS Lights up Lancaster


The MVS has been back on Morecambe Bay to help celebrate the annual firework festival at Lancaster Castle, which is part of the ‘Light up Lancaster’ event.

MVS members from the North West were on hand in Quay Meadow, one of the main viewing areas between the Castle and the River Lune, at historic StGeorge’s Quay.

MVS Communications Director, John Spencer-Barnes, said, “In recent years we have not had a presence on the bay since the closure of the Morecambe Unit. It was good to be able to engage with local people and tell them about the good work we are doing nearby in Fleetwood and Manchester and to provide safety information to users of the river in the old maritime city.
