I seem to be chasing my tail this week (as well as drowning in email) so apologies for the lateness of the mention for the first item!
Model Weekend – 17th-18th July
This weekend a Model Extravaganza is taking place at Hoylake Community Centre. Here’s some of things to see:
- Hornby Layouts in ‘O’ gauge, Hornby ‘oo’ gauge (in both three and two rail)
- Collection of Hornby model boats
- Meccano Working models
- Model boats, both on static display and sailing on the model boating lake
- Dealer’s trade stalls
- Mersey Class ‘All Weather Lifeboat’ on display at RNLI station
Diving With Sharks
Brave chap that he is, Hoylake Village Life founder member Mark Howard is undertaking a sponsored shark dive. For further details visit this page.
I’ve not seen them myself yet, but I gather that there are new recycling bins outside Hoylake Library. Wirral Council have installed 23 more recycling bins around Wirral and Hoylake along with West Kirby have received them. You can recycle empty drinks cans, drinks bottles, newspapers and magazines.
Old Lifeboat Station
You’ve probably read in the local newspapers that the proposed sale of Hoylake’s old lifeboat station has been rescinded by Council members. There is a local campaign of course that aims to convert the empty building into a lifeboat museum and there is now a period of time available for a firm proposal to be put forward. I’ll attempt to gather further information and publish a separate item soon.
The Big Lunch
It’s the Big Lunch again this Sunday and I’ve seen posters in a few house windows for a couple of local events. If you visit that official site and use the map, you’ll see the registered Hoylake lunches. Hope the weather is fine for you if you having a Big Lunch!
