What's on

The Nautilus Welfare Fund frequently runs events for those living in Mariners’ Park and the wider seafaring community.

There is a 'set menu' of weekly activities and many take place in the various function and games rooms at the Trinity House Hub and Seafarers UK Centenary Wing extension, as well as the Care Home.

As retired seafarers are often male, there are a number of special men's health and wellbeing events, designed specifically for older gentlemen.

New bungalows for veteran seafarers

Veteran mariners bungalows Veteran mariners' bungalows are now available

Retired Merchant Navy 'veterans' can now benefit from two new bungalows built for 'veteran' mariners at the Nautilus Welfare Fund's Mariners' Park in Wallasey.

The two-bedroomed bungalows - which each comprise a lounge, fitted kitchen, fully tiled wetroom, gas central heading and a garden - are now available, and in January 2019 two further two-bedroomed apartments will also be ready. The four units of accommodation were built specifically for veteran mariners and their dependants after a partnership between the charity and Seafarers UK secured financial support from the Aged Veterans' Fund.  

Any veteran mariners interested in finding out more about these properties can contact the Nautilus Welfare Fund on 0151 346 8840, or email welfare@nautilusint.org, or write to The Nautilus Welfare Fund, Trinity House Hub, 21 Webster Avenue, Mariners' Park, Wallasey CH44 0AE.

Please contact us to check on the latest upcoming events.

Men's health and social activities

As most retired seafarers living in Mariners' Park are male, the Nautilus Welfare Fund runs a special programme of events aimed specifically at improving and maintaining the health and wellbeing of men.

The men's health and wellbeing project is a programme of events targeted at male retired seafarers living in and around Mariners' Park.

Launched in September 2013, the project has been made possible by funding from the Maritime Charities Funding Group and a partnership with AgeUK Wirral.

There is no obligation to join any activities at Mariners' Park and the activities organisers are always happy to receive special requests for events or activities which residents would like to attend.

Celebrating special events is an important part of Mariners' Park life and events will be organised around specific days including remembrance and memorial days, Chinese New Year and Christmas. Other one-off events include bowls competitions, BBQs and fêtes.

It is important that everyone feels that they can join in, should they wish to, and staff assistance is available to help residents attend events or go on trips where required.

The Trinity House Hub provides facilities for all residents to enjoy, including a free gym and a hobby and craft room. A multi-purpose function room will be available for a range of activities including exercise classes, film shows and talks.
