‘Canary Across the Mersey’


‘Canary Across the Mersey’  is a true story which some members may remember. It’s about a young boy at school in Maghull who one day finds a canary and gives it a home. Written by Dr Michael Boyle, son of Lill Boyle, our welfare secretary it is beautifully illustrated.  There is now a delightful video about the book which you can see here.

Lill writes  “St Georges Junior had a big intake in Michael’s year year and were accommodated in a prefabricated extension in an orchard behind the Church.This was a fantastic place to be, for a young boy or girl,  with bluebells, wild rabbits, and a donkey – and a place to play football at playtime! Close by was a place the children called the Haunted old School House. What happened sounds unbelievable but I assure you it really did happen. You might like to read it to your grandchildren and perhaps your own children will remember it happening?”
