Narrow boat owners barge in on museum's holiday gathering.

CANAL boat owners from around Britain are meeting up this weekend for Ellesmere Port Boat Museum's annual Easter gathering.

This year marks the 30th time the unigue canal museum has organised the event.

It features traditional narrowboats and craft demonstrations as well as activities for children.

Marketing assistant Hayley Parsonage said: "We've got about 20 boats at the moment with more coming later, and everyone's sticking around until Monday.

"There is lots going on for families, including street entertainers, diablo workshops and an Easter egg hunt.

"The weather has been fantastic for our anniversary year, and everyone's sitting out by the canal in the sunshine."
