The new Meols Park Play Area was officially opened by the Mayor and Mayoress of Wirral, accompanied by the Mayor & Mayoress of Knowsley on 6th September 2009 during our Celebration Day.
The Liverpool Band China Crisis have been very supportive of our cause and were the ‘surprise guests’ in the music marquee on the day.
“Eddie and Gary of China Crisis first met at St Kevin’s school in Kirkby, Liverpool, so it was fitting that the Mayor and Mayoress of Knowsley should attend.”
18th Sept 2009. The Nest Swing has been so popular and as a result due to excess numbers of children using it at any one time, the foundation on one of the leg supports has been damaged. After speaking with the contractors they told me that the concrete foundation mix was probably at fault, so they have now rectified the problem by doing a stronger mix and putting in iron straps at the base of the support leg. The swing should be back in action in a few days time when the concrete has set properly
16th September 2009. Received an official looking thank you card from the Mayor and Mayoress of Knowsley Dave and Sarah Smithson, saying “Many thanks for your kind invite and congratulations on your excellent work on the park” Nice touch I thought and it was great that they were able to come along on our Celebration Day especially as two of their ‘subjects’ Gary and Eddie of China Crisis did a surprise appearance.
24 Sept 2009. The Railway Inn Smoking Area to the front of the building literally went up in smoke last night
The Legendary Eighties Band China Crisis made a guest appearance at our Celebration Day Event on Sunday. It was a “best kept secret” and they wowed the crowd with their musical flair sprinkled with humour. Gary Daly said “He felt like the Vicar of Dibley, but that he would draw the line at judging the bonnie baby competition.The event was a celebration of the new park play area that we have worked so hard to raise funds for.
