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 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

Liverpool Echo Wish 2010


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 350 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!!!
