"The newly-revived International Mersey River Festival is calling on volunteers to help make its raft race the biggest and best ever.
After the success of the raft race in the Battle of the Atlantic 70th anniversary event last year, council organisers have launched an extended version for the River Festival.
Anyone aged 16 years and above is eligible to enter and the idea is to get groups of four or more together to build rafts they can race.
The race will be held during the River Festival on Sunday, June 15, at 2pm. Entry is free, but donations to charity will be taken."
