The infrastructure of Queens Park has been neglected for many years. The concrete and timber seating around the bowling green were crumbling and unusable. The four double sets of gates were severely rusted and no longer operated.
Thanks to a grant from West Wirral constituency fund and donations we were able to restore all the gates and replace all the bowling green benches.
After the success of the Friends first dog show, their second one is on Sunday 31st July 2016 - see below
Each year Wirral Festival of Firsts comes to Hoylake with a great Parade followed by a festival afternoon in Queens ark, Hoylake.
We invited local school children to come and help us plant over 1000 daffodil bulbs in Queens Park. They are around the bowling green and along the main path. They should look brilliant in the spring.
Please look around our website to see what we are about, we are a completely self funding charity and if you like what we do in the village and parks please consider becoming a Support member
or making a donation towards the planting and caring of our village and parks.
If you would like to go on the Friends volunteer email list and help the village and parks smile, that would be great. It does not mean you are expected to volunteer for everything we do. We all have busy lives, if you can help, great, if not maybe next time.
Friends creating a new Nepeta hedge
The Friends have totally restored Queens Park playground with many new play items. Our thanks to local businesses for grants and donations.
In 2015 Queens Park received the Green Flag award for the first time in its history. This has been down to the Friends volunteers improving the park with support from the local community, council and businesses.
With the popularly of Queens Park and the great many people that come to all sorts of events, having a defibrillator is really essential. How it works, in an emergency you phone 999 and if the operator decides the defibrillator is needed the 999 operator gives the box code and talks you through what to do until help arrives.
