Jo Smith, owner of Seagrass Studio & Gallery at The Quadrant and a member of the Hoylake Business Group, comments on plans to decorate Market Street and Hoylake this Christmas:
“We met in October and brainstormed a few ideas about celebrating Hoylake village and making it particularly welcoming over Christmas. We are fundraising for the Christmas lights and I have also been into all four schools in Hoylake/Meols and invited the children to make Christmas decorations to be displayed in all the Hoylake shops.
I spent a morning at Holy Trinity and worked with about 40 children who have created some fabulous pieces and Kingsmead, Meols Primary and Our Lady of Pity have all offered to be involved too. I am hoping to distribute the creations and have them on display in time for the Christmas lights to be turned on, on Sat 1st Dec. Hoylake will look fantastic. I am so pleased to do this small thing for our community as I know the children have put in lots of effort and have really enjoyed making their contributions.”
If you’d like to help, suggest an idea or make a donation pop along to see Jo at Seagrass at The Quadrant, opposite Hoylake Station. Alternatively, you can make a donation via Hoylake Village Life at this page. Remember, Wirral Council does not provide funding for Christmas decorations.
