Thanks to a successful £1,995 ‘Your Wirral/NHS Wirral Partnership Homes’ Funding Award, we plan to install thermo plastic markings in the Park Play Area. They will be both fun,educational and most importantly raise awareness and understanding of road safety on exiting the park.
The road safety markings will be placed at the two Play Area entrances and will be themed in the STOP, LOOK, LISTEN, LIVE with caricature logos and will be painted in bright easily seen colours.The fun and educational markings will be of Hopscotch’s which make fitness, fun for the children.
The vision of the country is for children to become more active and healthy and the introduction of action games, through floor markings will meet the needs.

The Friends of Meols Park put on a ‘Sparks In The Park’ event for the local and surrounding communities on Sunday 8th November 2009, when Fun & Fireworks were the order of the day. The weather was really kind to us especially as in the days leading up to the event the weather had been horrendous.The fun started off at 2pm with Childrens Fairground Rides,Bouncy Castles , Slides,Swing Boats and Refreshments galore with Chips,Burgers,Hot Dogs,Candy Floss and of course the superb Mulled Wine made by Rachel and John. 7 Waves 92.1 Community Radio set up in the Marquee to keep us entertained with some great music. They set up beside the Beer and Wine tables at the request of Brian.(only joking) Elaine and her helpers were also in the marquee selling chocolate apples and glow in the dark bracelets to raise funds for the Rainbows. The lucky winner who got to activate the VIP plunger was Alan Scott from Meols. We had to delay the start of the Firework Display as it didn’t get completely dark until 5.55pm but it was well worth the wait. Heres to next years display on the 7th November 2010. Don’t miss it!
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.
