We’re thinking of you

All of us at Morecambe Bay Partnership are thinking of you – our friends and supporters. We hope that you are comfortable and finding ways to adapt to new circumstances.  Please let us know if there’s something we can help with.

Like you, we’re looking out for our friends and family. Our team quickly got used to video meetings from home, but juggling childcare is… well you can imagine, let’s be positive, and call it haphazard.

Once we can, we’re greatly looking forward to welcoming you back to our events to care for the Bay we all love.  Meanwhile stay home, stay safe and look out for one another.

We’ll get through this together

Hooray for NHS and all key workers, as well as local support groups – springing up everywhere. A wonderful sign of community spirit and energy.  This gentle kindness echoing through our communities will get us through these days together. If you need help and can’t find a group local to you, please let us know, we can help.

Now more than ever, we’ll be pleased to hear from you if you want to get in touch

#Stayathome
Beat boredom with stories of the Bay

Our Recording Morecambe Bay Website holds a huge array of fascinating stories and archaeological records from our collection.

Lose yourself in memories from our oral history archives – from shrimping tales to the Super Swimming Stadium – you can enjoy voices from all corners of the Bay.

You can also explore virtual 3-D models of archaeological sites, discover new historical research or simply enjoy old maps, photographs and information about our shared history.

Not sure where to start? Try the Morecambe Bay Lives Podcasts, the history of Jenny Brown’s Point or stories of our fishing industry – music, voices, animations and beautiful images – just check Catching Tales.

We’ll keep sharing stories on social media and would love to hear your stories and memories and see your old photographs too.

Think before you flush!

Only the 3Ps “pee, poo and toilet paper” should be flushed – a timely reminder from Hannah, our LOVEmyBEACH Officer.

Kitchen roll, wet wipes, newspaper and even socks are being used and causing blockages in the sewers and problems in septic tanks.  “If you’re stuck, and using alternatives, they go in the bin, not down the loo,” said Hannah.
Stick to flushing only the 3Ps to keep our sewers clear and beaches safe and clean for everyone. Learn more at https://lovemybeach.org/at-home/
