beverly macca

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

Meols Park Wins Green Flag Award

Image
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.
