Have you seen the tree outside The Row on Market Street decorated with lights? The tree pictured (not particularly well sorry – I must read my camera manual at some point) is the first of what will become three Memorial Trees. Jackie Hall has been in touch with more information:
This is the Tree we dedicated last year particularly to the memory John Chapman and also other Hoylake Residents who had passed away over the years.
A Memorial Book presented in memory of Ron Hall was placed in the Co-operative Funeralcare Office, behind the tree, for anyone to add a name at any time.
We are delighted to say that as a result of the fundraising efforts during the year we are now able to light the other two trees either side of this one.
Island Electrics have kindly agreed to carry out the work in the next two weeks and these lights will hopefully be lit from 5 p.m. to Midnight every night throughout the year. They are not part of the Christmas Lights.
We would be grateful for donations in memory of Residents, to complete the amount required, and paying in slips are available from Cooperative Funeralcare or Jackie Hall on 632 2152.
Additionally, have you noticed the small flower beds around each of the trees? These flower beds are maintained by local school children (Holy Trinity I think) and there have been notices on the trees asking dog owners not to allow their dogs onto these little gardening areas.
