Pupils from St Nicholas Primary School, within the parish of Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, gathered to help celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Cathedral.
A garden party was arranged for them as a treat, but unfortunately the rain poured down and plan B was put into operation with a retreat to the Gibberd Room for sandwiches, jellies and cakes. The garden party games had to be abandoned due to lack of outside space but the party food, a little bit of singing, followed by Mr Trix, the magician in full clowns outfit, kept the children entertained for the afternoon.
Cathedral Dean, Canon Tony O’Brien said: “I think the adults, myself included, enjoyed the fun as much as the children. I still can’t work out how the magician made the live white rabbit appear! It made a welcome change from all the more formal Jubilee occasions and you can’t beat a bit of jelly if you want to create a party atmosphere”.
