Morecambe Bay – Constantly Changing Yet Change is Not Constant

DATE/ TIME: Sat 2 Nov, 2pm

LOCATIONS: The Lecture Theatre, The Storey

Susannah Bleakley, Chief Executive of Morecambe Bay Partnership explores our contradictory relationship with Morecambe Bay – a place of constant change that inspires and calms us. We love its beauty and yet fear its danger and in turn want to engage with and yet seem to turn our backs to the Bay.
