19 June. The Planting of Bushes and Shrubs is well underway now.
300 Bags of Eco-Safety Surfacing/Mulch arrived and was being spread over the planted areas and around the Spica’s and See-saw. It is a rubbery chip like substance and Meols Park is the first on The Wirral to have this done.
The Playground is really taking shape now with all the new equipment being installed and we just had to test the see-saw before we let the kids on it…..
18th June. The workers were preparing for the planting of bushes and shrubs by putting
down a layer of membrane which will be covered by eco rubber/bark like chippings.
17 June. After the plan for our new park was drawn up I had a copy on the kitchen table and my 6 year old daughter, Ellen was looking at it and said to me that she thought it was great but there was something missing. I asked what could it be as we had all checked it over and approved the plan, she said like only a six year old could “Daddy there isn’t a cycle stand and you always trip over the bikes that are lying on the floor” Well I was gobsmacked, so straight away I got on to Jackie at the council and fair enough she said “no problem I will
sort it out” and she has. Well done Ellen and also thank you to Jackie and the Parks team.
16th June. The Animals are back in place now and starting to look better already. Today we had a visitor from the Big Lottery who checked out our progress so far. Thanks for coming Catherine and for your support in our project.
15th June. The Horse and Zebra are back home again, but can you notice the difference? (ps its nothing to do with their colour)
14th June. The special Wetpour safety surfacing was being laid today.
13th June.The horse and Zebra are getting their colours back by our volunteer animal painters, Rachel,Yvonne and Jean
12 June. Work today hit a new peak with bodies everywhere, what with installing grassmat safety surface,tarmac, wet pour safety surfacing,stoning,railings,gate and even some fine tuning of the toddlers unit (well that was the excuse, all they needed was a couple of Pirate Hats)
11th June. Its all been happening today, the boys from the blackstuff were laying down the tarmac on the new pathways. They also topped up the areas under the swing frames in preparation for the wetpour. They are doing a great job and in record time too. Well done you….
