If you would like to go on the Friends volunteer email list and help the village 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.

If gardening is not for you, that’s fine it does not suit everyone. Perhaps you would like to help for a couple of hours in the Parade Gardens tea kiosk or Queens Park tea room.

We also need all kinds of assistance in running events.

This summer we entered Hoylake and Meols in ‘North West in Bloom’ under the ‘small coastal resort’ category. It is something the Friends have been contemplating for some years but have always been put off for the amount of additional work and funding required for a successful bid. The picture below shows the Judge and volunteers in Queens Park after a two hour tour of our bid. Click HERE for more pictures of the bid tour.
