Meols Park Wins Green Flag Award

17th July 2012
Just announced today that Meols Park in Wirral has been recognised as being among the best in the country and has won A Green Flag Award.
The Green Flag Award is a sign that the park is well-maintained, well-managed and has excellent facilities.
The award recognises high quality green spaces in England and Wales managed by voluntary and community groups.The results of 2012’s judging show that Meols Park meets the ever-demanding criteria of these national awards. The Green Flag recognise the achievements of all those whose hard work and dedication help to create well-managed, high-quality places so important for health and leisure activities and which everyone can enjoy.
The scheme’s scoring criteria includes levels of community involvement, space for nature, play provision and their quality and feel. The higher their score, the longer the parks and gardens can fly the flag, subject to unannounced inspections.
With our park providing the perfect location for families during the school holidays, I am really pleased that we have won this award and it just shows what can be done with a run down park by sheer commitment and enthusiasm along with great community involvement and pride.

Sparks In Meols Park on 6th Nov 2011

Our 3rd Annual Sparks In The Park Event was a great success and Once Again the weather was fantastic…..Clear Blue Skies throughout the Day which made for great conditions at dark for our Firework Display. The Display was I must say tremendous and the amount of fantastic feedback from attendees has been immense. There were plenty of ooh’s and aah’s as soon as Rev Gillian Rossiter from St Johns Church in Meols, pressed down the VIP Plunger to start off the show. Great fun was had by all during the day and the night, enjoying the family funfair and of course the Pumpkin Soup provided by Incredible Edible Hoylake together with Rachel’s special Meols Mulled Wine. Infusion Enterprise from the Girls Birkenhead Academy School were also in attendance with a self fund raising stall. Roll on Next Year…….
