As we’ve just heard that at 8pm tonight, landmark buildings throughout Liverpool, including The Albert Dock, will turn blue to pay tribute to the NHS, Jean Hill looks back on some of her favourite memories from the Dock.

His & Hers Magazine has a longstanding love affair with the Royal Albert Dock. Poignantly to recollect now, we watched Cast Away on the Floating Cinema on the Dock, with a mega performance from Tom Hanks. His survival skills, when stranded on an uninhabited island, including do it yourself dentistry, are beyond description.

Some of our favourite restaurants reside on the Dock. I can recollect a perfect summer evening, eating a sublime prawn curry at Rosa’s Thai Restaurant, with my favourite daughter, our editor. Lunyalita has been a favourite lunch time meeting place for the family. Special occasions were usually celebrated at Gusto’s Italian, sitting at our favourite table with a sweeping view of the Dock. Maray does the best vegetarian food around: I can almost taste the hummus. The list goes on. My choir, memorably, performed at the World Museum. A friend and I had a brilliant time, exploring the Slavery Museum, which conveys so well the human cost of slavery. Here is to happy times in the future. Start collecting those gift cards. Invest in the future. Here is to celebrating lights on the water, whilst enjoying great food, with loved ones and friends, sometime, quite soon.


In the meantime, tonight at 8pm, landmark buildings throughout Liverpool will turn blue to pay tribute to the NHS, notably National Museums Liverpool’s MLK building at Royal Albert Dock and World Museum. Also included will be: St George’s Hall, Liverpool Town Hall, Cunard Building, the Royal Court and Sefton Park Palm House, amongst others.

The Light It Blue initiative is a UK wide salute to the NHS during this challenging, unprecedented times around the UK and globe. The campaign was inspired by the NHS Clap For Our Carers campaign, which is intended to create a simultaneous show of support and invite cities to illuminate landmarks and historic buildings
