Viking History Unveiled in Meols Park


Viking history boards were unveiled in Meols Park on Saturday May 15th 2010 and it could be the first step towards a Wirral-Wide Viking trail.
THE quest for a trail celebrating Wirral’s Viking past is gathering pace with the unveiling of a themed history board in Meols at the weekend. The Friends of Meols Park worked with Wirral Council and Wirral Viking expert Professor Stephen Harding on the project to give visitors an insight into the area’s history as a Viking trading port. It is hoped the idea will be taken up by other groups across Wirral – and there are also plans for a Viking statue if funds can be found. The finished board was unveiled by Esther McVey on Saturday, in her first official engagement as Wirral West MP.
Other Viking-themed celebrations included a re-enactment in front of St John the Baptist Church.
Professor Harding said said: “We hope that these boards going up will see the start now of a Wirral Viking trail and the next job is to raise the money for a statue.” Vikings are thought to have arrived in North West England over a millennium ago. After their expulsion from Dublin in AD902 the Wirral Vikings, initially led by the Norwegian Viking Ingimund, would have landed in their boats along the North Wirral coastline. Some historians believe a Viking boat is buried under the car park of the Railway Inn in Meols.
Roy Shuttleworth, secretary of the Friends of Meols Park, said: “The next thing we want is to get a statue of Ingimund – that’s the vision.” Article by Lorna Hughes- Wirral News

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…

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.
