As I mentioned last week, Merseyside Maritime Museum got the flags out and put a very special Ghanian surf boat on display to celebrate the 50th anniversary of independence in Ghana.

Yesterday we were honoured to welcome some very special guests to the museum, the President of the Republic of Ghana, Mr John Kufuor and Mrs Theresa Kufuor, during a state visit to Liverpool. They were given a tour of the Transatlantic Slavery gallery and heard about plans for the new International Slavery Museum, before a reception attended by members of the local Ghanaian Community.
