I would like to see Manchester’s Mersey put to more use. There’s never anything on it. To start, I’d like a Dutch-style dyke jumping contest, possibly to take place near Jackson’s Boat at Chorlton Ees (above), with contestants dressed in tutus: Fairy Across The Mersey.
Some kind of raft race to follow. Charity/community involvement, get there before the corporates nab it. Easy.
