Help Make Our Wish Come True

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 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!!!

Nest Swing Foundations Rocked

Nest Swing in Meols Park

Nest Swing in Meols Park

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

A Mayoral Thank You!

Mayoral thank you card

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.
