Motherwell CIC who organised a retreat day on a barge for Mums in South Cheshire. The barge left from Church Minshull Aqueduct Marina, near to Nantwich.

Mums across South Cheshire took a break from their busy lives by cruising a Nantwich canal in a day’s retreat organised by Motherwell CIC.

Ten 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.

They cruised towards and stopped at The Barbridge Inn on Chester Road,for a bite to eat and walk.

Some of the mums received a combination of reflexology and Indian Head Massages during the journey back to Church Minshull.

The spring event was one of many health and wellbeing days aimed at supporting mums in taking time to concentrate on themselves.

Angelita Woosnam, co-founder of Motherwell CIC, 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 for Motherwell CIC, having made the full circle of giving something back to a group that has supported them.”

Cheryl Bromont, from Wistaston, said: “The time I spend with Motherwell is time for me, away from everything else.

“The group has encouraged me to reassess how I spend my time and bring me back down to earth and think about how I need to spend more time on ‘me’.

“The organisers at Motherwell do an amazing job! They are all so welcoming.”

Upcoming events open to mums across South Cheshire are monthly Sparkle and Shine Wellbeing Days held in Crewe and Winsford.

The Glitter Ball is a chance for mums to pamper themselves and dress for a buffet meal and disco to be held at Crewe Alexandra FC on Saturday September 10.

Tickets for this all-women event can be bought at £25 per person.

All money raised from The Glitter Ball and Barge Retreat Day will be put back into the post-natal element of Motherwell CIC.
