We enjoyed another fine day although rain had threatened when walk five of our season took place on Saturday 11th August. Yet again an excellent turn out of thirty five visitors were shown around the gardens and had another chance to look inside the chapels.
During this walk visitors heard about one of the planners of the D Day landings, a Crimean War veteran and a former Chief Constable of Birkenhead; once again, our resident poet, Terry, entertained the visitors with a couple of his poems.
Be sure to join us for our final scheduled walk, which as with tradition will have a military theme, on Saturday 8th September. We will be in the Tam O Shanter Farm from around ten thirty and as usual we will start the walk at 11.00 am.
Can we take the opportunity to remind all our supporters that we we be open on five separate occasions during the Council’s Heritage Open Days event, 6th – 16th September. As well as our walk, we will be open on Monday 10th, Wednesday 12th, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th. Each event will be from 2.00 pm until 4.00 pm
We are also pleased to announce that the Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Geoffrey Watt, has kindly agreed to unveil a blue plaque at Flaybrick honouring Charles Lucy and Charles Littler who were the architects who designed the buildings at the Memorial Gardens. The unveiling will be at 11.30 am on Wednesday 12th September.
