Gail Lowther, Chair of Friends of Grove Park writes:
“At our last committee meeting of the Friends of Grove Park, we met with Jackie Smallwood from the Parks Dept and she said that work to install the new play equipment should start mid November. So hopefully the new play equipment should be in place well before Christmas. If anyone wants to see a plan of the proposed alterations there is a copy up in the noticeboard in the park.”
As I understand it, children’s play apparatus within Wirral parks has traditionally been replaced every 20 years and next year would have been Queens Park’s turn again. That isn’t scheduled to happen however and as a result Jan Foster and the Hoylake in Bloom group have been attempting to have funds allocated to the park play area. I think some funding has however been secured to replace the well-used, rotten picnic benches within the play area.
The brick building (gardeners hut) by the bowling green within the park has just had a replacement roof.
How long have the street-lights within the park been off? Is it just me or were the lights working earlier this year?
The two bowling greens are now treated and fed and many of the grass verges have been trimmed and tidied. There hasn’t been any sign this week of the works for the forthcoming mosaic and sensory garden area.
