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.

Thanks to the efforts of Angie Mounsey and her team of volunteers, residents and visitors to Heswall will have enjoyed the summer planting in Castle Buildings - despite the Council's lack of attention to grass cutting! It'll soon be time to remove the summer bedding and plant out the Winter Pansies. Once again, Angie Mounsey is leading the charge and we are hoping that volunteers will lend a hand.
The plants have been ordered and the process of digging over and planting out is earmarked for Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th October (also Friday 18th if necessary), starting at 10:00am.
At the moment, volunteers seem to be rather thin on the ground so, if you can spare a bit of time to help Angie with this, please call her on 0151-342 4514. You will be most welcome. Equally, if you know others who might like to be a part of this, please invite them along. Please bring your own tools!
