Liverpool Echo Wish Tokens Collected

Roy, Esther and helpers at St John's Church Centre
There was a real sense of Community spirit at St John’s Church Centre in Meols on the regular Thursday morning Coffee Morning. I went along and with the assistance of Jackie Hall,Rachel and Lynda from our ‘friends’ group and other cheerful volunteers, we spent the morning cutting out and pasting the ‘Wish Tokens on to special collector sheets(10,448 in total). We even had Esther McVey (Our ‘Friends Group’ Chairman) helping out for a couple of hours when she took time off from her campaign to become our local Member of Parliament. Thanks Esther and good luck in your quest and thanks also to all the volunteers in the kitchen … the bacon toasties were lovely…

Penguin In The Park

Ellen giving Go Green a Big Hug


The ‘Go Green’ Penguin has now got his new home in the Meols Park Play Area. Any ideas about what we should call him ???? The ‘Go Green’ Penguin was displayed in Liverpool’s Williamson Square and made his way across the water to Meols Park Play Area to settle in to his new home.
Go Green – Description: Well-dressed for winter, this penguin’s simple message urges us all to think of the planet. The Artist was Jan ,an accomplished designer and painter. She recently completed a postgraduate certificate in surface pattern design and is currently studying for her MA in Fine Arts in York St John University. ‘Go Green’s’ sponsor was Arriva Buses.
It’s a straightforward message from our penguin friends; go green and help them fight climate change

Trees Planted in Meols Park


As part of the ongoing improvement to the Meols Park Play Are, we today were greeted with the arrival of 6 established trees and 3 bushes which were planted in and around the Play Area.
When in leaf the trees should give some shade to park users on those scorching hot summer days (hopefully).

Liverpool Echo Wish 2010


Our wish to install a MOSAIC feature commemorating Community Pride and Local Heritage in the Park Play Area could come true, with your help….
The Liverpool ECHO is giving away £50,000 to 350 community groups across Merseyside.
The Friends of Meols Park have been successful in being accepted as one of the community groups.
Every penny must go to community groups, clubs, schools and charities across the region and it’s up to YOU how much we get – by saving as many tokens as you can.
Every group registered on our Wish List is guaranteed a share of the money.
The size of our group’s share will depend on the support we receive from Echo readers in the form of tokens collected towards our group.The tokens will be in the Echo from the 15th February for a total of 8 weeks.
The £50,000 cash pot will then be divided by the number of tokens collected – and the bigger our share of tokens, the bigger our slice of cash.
So come on…. get collecting ..please!!!
