Sunny Saturday Boating

Boats 230 and 600 pass at Manchester Square on their first runs of the day on the Heritage Tour service on 18th April

All this talk of lovely warm weather that the country has been basking in for the last couple of weeks has been rather lost on people who happen to live on the Fylde Coast. The conditions have been unremarkably gloomy and cool on the Lancashire coastline of late, with no sign at all of the alleged "heatwave" that the rest of the country has supposedly been basking in. Saturday 18th April however managed to give us clear blue skies all day long, although it was rather cool due to the easterly wind. The sunny weather was the perfect opportunity to allocate Boat trams for use on the blue timetabled Heritage Tour service, and proper green and cream liveried Boats 230 and 600 shuttled backwards and forwards all day between the North Pier and the Pleasure Beach.
