There’s work currently being undertaken at the Promenade Gardens that doesn’t really look that attractive.
The remaining wooden fence panels are being removed, the brick pillars are being repaired but breeze blocks are replacing the fencing. I know the area takes a complete hammering from the wind and some of the fence panels were in poor condition but the blocks look awful. There’s been some graffiti on the existing brickwork for some years …you have to wonder if some fresh wall will encourage more of it?
I’ve no idea if the Hoylake and Meols regeneration plans have progressed at all (hard to see were the money will be coming from in the current economic climate), but some form of improvements would be welcome.
From what I’ve noticed though the grass is going to have a tendency to hold water so it may be often muddy.
By the way, have you seen the station at night when it’s glowing red inside (it’s the halogen heaters I guess)? Gives the building a slightly mysterious look.
And finally, we’ve lost a bench along the front – something or someone has smashed one near to the shelter at the bottom of Clydesdale Rd.
