Model boat groups from Southport, Hoylake, Liverpool, Runcorn, Ormskirk and West Lancashire will be showcasing their collection of model boats on Saturday 11 April and Sunday 12 April.

All the boats will be indoors ensuring that no matter what the weather, you can have a great day out this Easter.”
