Silhouette on the Mersey

LIVERPOOL is set to welcome a brand new addition to the City's Cruise calendar. Celebrity Silhouette is making her inaugural call to Liverpool on Monday, 15 June 2015, and it's an extra special visit for the ship, as it is Celebrity Cruise's 25th Birthday.

To mark the occasion, Liverpool's Cruise Team will throw them a very special birthday welcome with live music, a welcome from the official Town Crier Terry Stubbings and a birthday cake presented by Lord Mayor Councillor Tony Concepcion to Captain Dimitrios Kafetzis and Hotel Director Raffaele Bernardini. And to make sure that this City has made an unforgettable impression, the team are also planning a sail away concert which will include a live operatic performance from Mezzo soprano Danielle Thomas and confetti cannons.

Councillor Concepcion, said:- "I am delighted to be able to present Captain Dimitrios Kafetzis and Hotel Director Raffaele Bernardini. with a cake to mark Celebrity's birthday and officially welcome passengers and crew to our wonderful city. It's been an incredibly busy few weeks for our small cruise team, with the visit of the ginormous Royal Princess which was followed by three rather large ships arriving on the River Mersey, paying us an unforgettable visit! The inaugural visit of Celebrity Silhouette means we can continue the celebrations and give the passengers and crew a warm Liverpool welcome for what we hope is the 1st of many visits."

The American vessel can accommodate 2,866 passengers on board and 1,500 crew and is set to arrive at 9.30am, on Monday, 15 June 2015, and depart at 7.30pm. She is 4 years old and will be doing a round Britain tour.

Leon Hand, Senior Trainer for Celebrity Cruises said:- "It has been great to receive such a warm welcome from the City of Liverpool for Celebrity Silhouette's 1st visit. The City has a strong maritime history and we are proud to be a part of that. We would like to thank the Lord Mayor Councillor Concepcion and cruise team from the City Council for a great celebration and look forward to welcoming guests on board."

Open day at Alexandra House care home

BEN, automotive industry charity owner of Alexandra House Care Centre in Southport is proud to be taking part in the 'National Care Home Open Day' on 19 June 2015, between 10am and 4pm. The idea behind the day is to encourage local people to visit care homes in their community and to work together to develop better relationships. This important connection is something that Alexandra House has nurtured since opening its doors in 1983, and has enjoyed a reputation for warmth and friendliness, combined with providing the highest standards of professional care.  As part of the 'Care Home Open Day 2015', Alexandra House is hosting a visit from a volunteer artist who will be participating in art classes with the residents. Hand and neck massages with therapists will be offered to on and off duty staff who can also join in with the art lessons. There will be tea and cake available during the day with a community choir singing from 3pm to 4pm.  Jan Habeck, BEN's Care Centre Manager, said:- "This is a great way to show the excellent services on offer and the fantastic work that goes on at Alexandra House. Some people still have misconceptions about care homes so we are keen to dispel any myths and for people to come and have a look around, meet the staff and our residents. We look forward to meeting you and saying 'hello' over a cup of tea."
