The Friends of Meols Park are pleased to present their 5th Firework Display On Sunday 3rd November 2013. This year The Firework Display will be set off by our local Social Celebrity Beverley Macca  by pressing down our VIP Plunger..
The theme once again is ‘Fun & Fireworks’. Incredible Edibles of Hoylake, will be serving out Pumpkin Soup and there will be the usual Family Funfair Rides, Side Stalls, Refreshments, Donkey Rides and of course Rachel’s famous Mulled Wine and maybe a touch of Lambrini too for our Bev!
The Fun Starts at 12noon and Firework Display at around 6-6.30pm. Make sure you get here Early for the best viewing point especially as the crowd is bound to be swollen with Bev’s  Bevettes! And for those coming by car, minibus or coach , we would ask that you please consider our neighbours and park correctly and sensibly. There is plenty of on-street parking but we would ask that you utilise the Meols Promenade to Park which is just a 2 minute walk away.  NO PARKING IN SCHOOL LANE AFTER 4PM PLEASE!!
The Firework Display as always is Free although there will be bucket collections and Voluntary Donations would be appreciated,due to the ever rising cost of staging the Event. The Event will finish around 7.30pm

Viking Weekend and Family Funfair was a Great Success!

Image

The Friends of Meols Park wish to thank everyone for coming along to the weekend events in the Park. Thanks also to the helpers and of course to all the Vikings who came from far and wide. There was a great deal of interest in the Viking way of life and some of the questions that the young children were asking were hilarious, for example  ” How do you keep food fresh without a fridge” …. ” Are you really 1,000 yrs old”  ….. “what are you wearing under that dress”  …..  “Is that a real baby she is holding” …
Thanks also to local historian Peter France of Wirral Archeology who talked all afternoon about local heritage and exhibiting Viking ‘findings’ like arrow heads. There was a constant crowd of people of all ages around his gazebo.

All in all the Event was a great success, with even the weather being kind to us in the main. Check the Viking Wirral website for further information about our planned Ingimund Statue Project to mark the arrival of the largest replica Viking Ship in the World next summer.

Meols Park Mosaic Feature

Ellen,Friends & Helpers Celebrating the New Mosaic Feature in Meols Park Play Area

by Lorna Hughes, Wirral News

MORE than 100 youngsters took part in a community project to create a giant mosaic in Meols Park.
The colourful floor mural in the park’s seating area is made up of 11 mosaics in an outer circle and eight inner sections representing the history of Meols and the area as it is today.
The designs include an RNLI lifeboat, a Viking longboat and warrior and wildlife on nearby Hilbre Island.
A central circle depicts the logo and name of the Friends of Meols Park, the group behind the project.
Pupils of Great Meols Primary School, and members of a local Rainbow and Brownie group were among those who worked with an artist to design the mosaics.
Roy Shuttleworth, secretary of the Friends of Meols Park, said the result was “fantastic”.
He said: “We had scores of children involved in the project by running workshops at Meols Park bowls pavilion, Great Meols Primary and St John’s Church hall in September and October.“All the segments were completed in five days.” The mosaic was made using durable swimming pool tiles which were fixed on to concrete paving slabs with tile cement and grout.
The pieces were displayed in St John’s Church before being installed in the park last month.
The project was funded by a grant from Wirral Council and fundraising events organised by the Friends together with donations from Regal Fish & Chips and Smarties Play Group in Meols.
