This Friday (26th April) is the day that the Big Beach Clean-up takes place at both Hoylake and West Kirby and volunteers are more than welcome.
Organised and promoted by the Marine Conservation Society and Marks & Spencer, the nationwide scheme aims to reduce the amount of beach litter from around our coastline. In addition a litter survey will be undertaken to record the types of litter that can be found on the shore.
Register here for the Hoylake clean-up and here for the one at West Kirby. Meet at either Hoylake Lifeboat Station or West Kirby Sailing School for 1pm. On the day wear suitable clothing including gloves and take a drink with you.
If you register in advance you’ll receive a voucher on the day of the clean-up for a fiver off a Â£30 spend on food and drink at M&S.

Sorry Mike my comment should read from me not from you! oops
Wish I had stayed for 2 more days and I could have participated in beach clean up. Left Hoylake on 24th after a wonderful 2 days. The town where I grew up is looking so much brighter than it did on my last visit 10 years ago, I loved the new sculptures, the planting by Hoylake in Bloom is beautiful. The beach is looking so much better with hardly any spartina grass. After growing up in a hotel had to stay in one this time. The Holiday Inn at Kings Gap was fine and I can recommend to any other exiles requiring a bed for the night.
Seeing the recently built lifeboat house on the site of the old Baths was amazing- such a great building and easy slipway access onto beach and into the water. Was most impressed.
Seeing some old friends was wonderful and although I saw it as a final visit to Wirral as no longer have any family there- I had such a good time I might undertake the long drive (from Southampton) again.
Love this site and thanks to John Cronin for maintaining it.

I sincerely hope the plans for a cafe to replace the toilet block at Trinity Rd get put into action. It would be lovely !!!!!!. It is just what Hoylake needs. My husband and I were there on Bank Holiday Monday, the beach looked beautiful !!!! It was a treat to see so many people down there. A cafe would have been the icing on the cake!
I just hope that they don’t demolish it and just forget about it.
I agree with Joan. A cafe at bottom of Trinity Road would be fantastic. Hope it goes ahead.
