There have been a few pieces of driftwood washed ashore in the last week but the one pictured (taken on my mobile – the day wasn’t actually that grey) above takes the award for biggest piece ever! Actually, I think Hoylake RNLI pulled this big branch ashore.
I happened to notice a bailiffs notice earlier today in the window of the Somethings Brewing tea room in The Row. The notice was dated 31st Jan but I don’t know if the cafe was open last week or not.

I’ve read a couple of reports about the high-voltage power cable proposals, stating the cable will come ashore at Hoylake. It seems that the proposed cable will actually come ashore at Leasowe. More information about power cable proposals at the BBC. Any thoughts on this?
PC Tommy Simmons
Leo Simmons (in British Columbia, Canada) would like hear from anyone who recalls his father PC Tommy Simmons who was a policeman in Hoylake and West Kirby as well as Moreton between 1968 and approximately 1981. Leo hopes that some of you might have stories relating to his father (who is rather unwell at the moment). Leave a comment below or email your memories (good or indifferent!) to HoylakeJunction and I’ll forward them on to Leo.
St John’s Meols Centenary
I’ll soon be updating this Meols site to include various items and photos related to the forthcoming centenary for St John’s Church in 2013. As the church at one time managed the old Meols School in School Lane, I’ll be including the photos that I’ve already published here. Great Meols Primary will also be having input to the project with St John’s and are interested in the history of the old school.
Behind the telephone exchange in Queens Park a hedge row/trees have been planted – anyone know any more? It’s probably a hedge I guess.
If you’ve spotted, ridden or driven over any big pot holes then did you know that you can report them? There are a couple of sites including Fill That Hole that let you report offending pot holes – you never know, it might even get filled in!
