A few items of Hoylake news for all starting off with an update to the Cumpsty & Miller photo that I published in May. I must thank Pat Ireland and George Shone – Mr Cumpsty’s grandson – for the above photo of the aforementioned shop. Mr Cumpsty is the chap in the plus-fours on the right.
Thanks for all the comments about the 3 Sisters greengrocers featured in Monday’s Mary Queen of Shops. As has been commented, locals should have spotted some of not quite right edits …for instance, Telegraph Road shops have always been in Heswall not Hoylake ;). But it was great to see Hoylake on television and the place didn’t look too shabby did it? By the way, apologies if you had trouble viewing Hoylake Junction on Monday evening …the site received thousands of visitors and the computer server that the website is hosted on (all the way in California) couldn’t cope.
It seems that filming in Hoylake of the new comedy Candy Cabs has ended – at least for now. I gather it’s based on a true story of an all-woman taxi company in Warrington. They’ve also been filming some of the show in the Cheshire village of Lymm (see this blog post). I’m informed that the old show Watching, that was filmed in Meols, was coincidentally also filmed in Lymm. And to add another tenuous coincidence I used to work in Lymm, for someone whose uncle used to have a dental practice in Carlton Terrace.
I’m sure I’ve forgotten a couple of things! Anyways, as always feel free to send in your in Hoylake news. Look out for a couple of events listings coming soon.
