We walked around to the new lifeboat station last Saturday afternoon (1st November) to watch the official opening at 2pm. Tried to stress to our two young daughters that they were actually watching a significant event in Hoylake’s local history !
The invited guests were gathered inside the temporary fencing and a fair sized crowd had gathered outside too. Live music was provided by the Port Sunlight Lyceum Brass Band.
After the official opening by our local MP Stephen Hesford, all were invited inside the brand new building for a look around and slice of cake.
I understand that the transfer from the current station to the new one will be completed over the next few weeks. It’ll be good to see this fine new building being put to good use soon!
The photos I took of the ceremony aren’t great but I’ll get around to loading them anyways.
