Mums from across South Cheshire took a break by cruising the canal in a day’s retreat organised by Motherwell CIC.
A group of ten local mums met at Church Minshull Aqueduct Marina to board their hired barge for a day of relaxation and pampering.
Motherwell CIC work with mums across the region to support women in their mothering journey, with a focus on health and wellbeing.
On a beautiful sunny Sunday, they stopped at The Barbridge Inn for a bite to eat and a relaxing walk.
Some of the mums then received a combination of reflexology and Indian head massages during the journey back.
The spring event was one of many health and wellbeing days aimed at supporting mums in taking time to focus on themselves.
Motherwell’s Angelita Woosnam, said: “Our barge day was such a success.
“The weather was absolutely gorgeous giving a chance for mums in the area to get a real break from the demands of a regular day.
“We held a similar retreat day last year and are very proud to have welcomed people that day who now volunteer.”
