A group of 35 went on a visit to Port Sunlight near Liverpool on 12th April.

The village which is now listed was built by Lord Leverhume to house his workers in the Port Sunlight Soap factory. We thought it was as good if not better than Bournville Village Trust which was a similar idea by the Cadbury Brothers, here in Birmingham.

The wide variety of architect designed properties for the workers should be an inspiration to show modern day planners what should be done.
We had a guided tour of the village which explained the history and current day management by the Port Sunlight Trust.
The gardens and flowers must be spectacular in the summer.
We were able to visit the outstanding Art gallery, in the centre, which was also built by Lord Leverhume for his wife, this is free entry and excellent.

On the way back we called into Cheshire Oaks shopping centre for refreshments and retail therapy for some.
