HELP – Hoylake Engaging with Local People
Jackie Hall MBE and Loraine McKinley on behalf of all the voluntary groups in Hoylake have secured a grant for £6,500 to take over an empty shop for 12 months. The shop will be run by volunteers from the groups who make Hoylake an interesting and pleasant place to live, provide activities for all, and encourage footfall into Hoylake..
It is proposed that the shop 59, Market Street , Hoylake will be open by the end of January. It will be run like a Tourist Information Centre giving the out the latest information and news about Hoylake. It will provide a focus in the village for everyone. It will be a booking office for events, an internet support for technophobics and a place to view the latest plans for the village.
It is hoped to generate income from sales of items of interest to visitors to Hoylake, which will enable the shop to become viable and continue after the initial monies have been used..
To get the project off the ground Mrs Jackie Hall and Mrs Loraine McKinley will fit the shop out and then arrange for volunteers to take shifts on a rota basis. They have had lots of promises of help in this direction and look forward to a successful 12 months. Volunteers please contact Jackie on 632 2152.
Interested parties include Festival of Firsts, Incredible Edible Hoylake, Wirral Open Studio, Hoylake in Bloom, Hoylake Civic Society, Melrose Hall,
Hoylake Community Centre, Hoylake Lifeboat Museum, Churches Together to name but a few.
