Friends of Hoylake and Meols in Bloom

Welcome to The Friends of Queens Park web pages ( Friends of Queens Park is a  sub group of The Friends of Hoylake and Meols in Bloom) Whose aim is to care for all aspects of Queens park Parade Gardens Home Volunteer Village Home Queens Park Home Contact us

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.



Thank you to the many local businesses that help our village and parks smile.

This can range from donating cakes for the garden party, supplying raffle prizes,

purchasing play items to donations.

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.
