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…….
Fun starts at 12 noon with Family Fairground Rides,Side stalls, Hot & Cold Refreshments and of course Meols Mulled Wine.
