Happy New Year
The last day of the 2015 I spent the morning in a septic tank helping to get the marina sewer system working after the flood they should be fully working by Saturday. The pumps are running 24hrs and managing to keeping the flood water back, the Environment Agency have brought some larger pumps up from the Summer Set Levels to empty the adjoining fields and that should take some of the pressure of the head of water threatening us.
So now we can start 2016 on a high note with the great expectations. The future will call the past two weeks The Great Flood of 2015 and as that has only 4 hours to run it is already in the past it will be remembered for the fortitude and resilience of the people of North West Lancashire
Looking back on 2015 it was a really good year for us all, Starting with Maryanne’s MBE presentation a great achievement and a memorable occasion. Then the epic trip from Liverpool to Leeds along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, then continuing on to York now that was a trip to remember. Returning to find we had a breach in the Rufford canal preventing Buggerlugs from returning Home, it meant we had to spend a month in our second home at Scarisbrick We didn’t have two addresses when we were Landlubbers. Then it was off to Australia where we were made that welcome it became our third home. What a fantastic holiday we had, every time we go we always find new places, new adventures and form new friendships.
2015 saw our Granddaughter Pippa grow into a one year old bundle of smiles and joy. Thomas our Grandson grow into a real little boy with that great imagination only little Boys possess and long may he retain it what a joy he is to have around.
2015 also saw the passing of a number of our friends and relations all I know is they will be well looked after in the place they have gone God Bless them all.
NOW we march forward into 2016 like good soldiers never looking behind us, treasure its memories, but do not let them hold you back, look forward with great expectation and excitement to 2016.
