Castle Buildings Flowerbeds
Angie Mounsey (pictured) plus a small group of volunteers have now removed the Winter Pansies and prepared the ground for the Summer planting which is almost completed.
This is a major undertaking, spearheaded by Angie who devotes a considerable amount of time to tending the Castle Buildings flowerbeds throughout the seasons.
Help is needed to make sure that the new planting is regularly watered, particularly whilst it's so dry. Anyone willing to lend a hand with this vital task, please email Angie at email@example.com.

Kiosk Adopted - Hooray!
The Society has now formally adopted the Lower Village telephone kiosk under BT's 'Adopt a Kiosk' scheme, having at last completed all the legal formalities.
With support from the local community, the Society has adopted the kiosk in order to ensure that the street scene is preserved.
Thanks again to Heswall Today and to Caroline in the Village Shop for publicising the Society's efforts to retain the kiosk, and helping to raise funds. Thanks also to those who have very kindly donated. The money received enables the Society to carry out essential repairs and refurbishment works which will be starting very shortly. Plans for a formal opening ceremony will be announced in due course.
The Society now receives notification of all applications for surgery or felling of trees that are subject to Tree Preservation Orders or are within our Conservation Areas.

A wintry spell saw snow lying in the Park and visitors enjoyed tobogganing down the slopes. Some rather muddy children and adults were seen with their sledges and the park looked very beautiful.
The working parties are continuing and the Park is looking good now Spring has finally arrived.
