Thanks to Jeff Chequer who has sent me some details about the newly formed Hoylake Model Boat Club. Jeff says:
We are a newly formed club which was started on the 1st October 2009, with at present 33 members and growing. Most members are already from other model boat clubs clubs, such as New Brighton, Wirral and Ellesmere Port. We also have members from Liverpool and the surrounding areas.
We encourage people of all ages to join, and we think of ourselves as a fun club. Boats can vary from scale models such as merchant, naval, fishing and inland pleasure vessels. These can be from small to large kit form and even scratch built models.
We meet and sail at the lake every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday, starting about 10am weather permitting. We hold meetings every second Tuesday of the month at Sheridan’s at 7.30pm (the old Black Horse pub) Wallasey Village. If anyone would like to join us, or just to bring the kids down to watch the boats on the lake, they are very welcome.
A new website is currently being published and for further information you can contact Jeff (Club Secretary) on (0151) 606 9472
