Our first event of 2018 is on Monday 22 January at Heswall Hall, beginning at 8pm when Dr Rob Toomey will give us 'A Visitor's Guide to Mining and Making Copper in Wales'.
Over the years Wales has been at the centre of the world copper industry. Some of the important sites are a short drive from the Wirral. In his talk Dr Rob Toomey will give us the background to encourage us to see where Welsh copper was mined and made.

A statement from our Chairman, Steve Anderson
Dear Friends of Heswall,
I have some great news.
- the large number of people who signed the online and paper petitions
- the large number of people who turned out to demonstrate on Sunday
- the discussions that our councillors subsequently have had with the Council
I am delighted to say that the Cabinet member for Housing (George Davies) has agreed not to sell this plot of land in Heswall.
A big thank you to all of you who have supported this cause and special thanks to Phil Leon, members of the Heswall Society and to our councillors Les Rowlands and Andrew Hodson for all their hard work in getting this proposal overturned.
Thanks also to the Council for listening to the serious concerns of Heswall Residents and withdrawing this land from the auction.
The Heswall Society will remain vigilant in trying to ensure that such important urban green spaces in Heswall remain. If you are not a member, why not join the Society and help us. Click here to download an Application Form.
