Farr Hall Drive Area
The Society is very concerned about the 'discovery' of the Farr Hall Drive area by developers, and their proposals for developments (largely flats) which are out of character. A number of these are referred to within the Planning - Recent Activity page together with action taken by the Society.

In May, Angie Mounsey and her team of volunteers, some of whom are pictured, completed the removal of the winter bedding plants and re-planting the flower beds at Castle Buildings ready for the summer. The winter and summer planting of these much loved flower beds, as well as their subsequent maintenance and watering, is undertaken every year by The Heswall Society for the enjoyment of all.
Very grateful thanks to the other members of the Heswall in Bloom team who were working round the corner and, having finished, came to lend a hand.
