The Heswall Society
The Heswall Society is the local amenity society for Heswall and Gayton, formed just over 60 years ago by some far-sighted residents.
The Society is involved in all local environmental issues and is consulted by the Council on policies affecting the Conservation Areas. We review every planning application and, where necessary, make our views known to the Council. During 2015 we considered some 160 applications and objected or commented on 35.

We are still the only residents' body which encourages the best designs of houses, retail and commercial properties in order to maintain the character and distinguishing features of Heswall.
The Society is not just about opposing harmful change; it has also been active in enhancing our area over many years: for example, many trees in the Puddydale and in the Thurstaston Road triangle amongst others were planted by the Heswall Society.
We encourage our members to take an active interest in our surroundings and to keep us in touch with changes proposed in the area around them. Each year we hold a series of meetings with speakers on the environment or topics of specific or more general interest
2016 Christmas Carol Concert
Accompanied by the Port Sunlight Lyceum Band, nearly 200 people enjoyed singing carols around the Heswall Society Christmas Tree this year. Afterwards, they enjoyed seasonal refreshments of mulled wine and mince pies provided by St Peter’s Church.’
Treasurer's Plea on Standing Orders
Please Check Your Standing Orders
Treasurer Barry Hopkins made a plea at the January Open Meeting for everyone to check that their annual standing order of £10 Heswall Society subs are going to the right bank – Barclays.
Although the Society changed its bank a while ago, we believe that monies are still going astray. If you haven’t changed your standing order, you will find that a £10 sub will have been taken out of your account – making you think that it has been paid - but then put back in shortly after.
Please could everyone ensure they’ve got the correct details. For any queries you can contact the Society here.
