Community groups

Hoylake Village Life is one of many community groups in Hoylake, each of whom have different objectives. We encourage residents to take part in the wider community and there's lots on offer.

 

This section gives just a taste, we know there are many other groups than those listed here. If you would like us to publish some information about your group, please email us now with the details.

Wirral Bird Club caters for all who are interested in birds - the mildly interested to the keenly interested - the beginner to the experienced - all are welcome.

The aim of the club is to promote a general interest in birdwatching, and in particular to provide opportunities for members to share common interests in birds and to increase their knowledge of birds through meetings, lectures and visits to interesting birdwatching sites.

Wirral Bird Club also supports national and local organisations concerned with the protection of birds and the conservation of bird habitats.

Monthly Indoor Meetings are held at 8 pm on the 4th Thursday of each month (apart from August and December), at Kingsmead School Hall, Bertram Drive, Hoylake, CH47 0LL, when guest speakers offer illustrated presentations on a wide variety of bird-related topics.

Visitors are very welcome, and the charge is £4.00, which includes light refreshments.

Outdoor Field Meetings are held as often as possible. Many field meetings are held on the Wirral, but many are planned to include trips, some by coach, to places outside of Wirral, where interesting bird life can also be found.

Are you aged 13-19 and live in Hoylake? Tired of having nothing to do? Fed up with being ignored by adults, the council, the police? Then do something about it.

HVX is a new group run exclusively by and for local teenagers. We are supported by Hoylake Village Life (HVL), a community interest company that wants to improve Hoylake for the benefit of all residents. That includes us… 

HVL provides support and advice and helps us get the attention we need. We speak to the council, police, community groups and anyone else who will listen to us. We know we won’t get everything we want but at least our voice is being heard. And if we work together we can be more persuasive.

HVX are responsible for developing our own programmes, events and facilities. We take the flak when it goes wrong. But we’ll be big winners when it goes right. And we’ll make Hoylake better for the next generation

We think it’s got legs… so use yours and join us now; email  hvx@hoylakevillage.org.uk

Transition Town West Kirby (TTWK) is a group working towards a sustainable low-carbon lifestyle, based in West Kirby, Hoylake, and elsewhere on the Wirral.

We are one of dozens of Transition Town groups that have formed over the last few years throughout the UK and around the world.

The global challenges of climate change and energy shortages are approaching - we feel that we may not be able to do much at a global level, but can do a lot at the level of the local community - and that it is better to plan a local response in advance rather than wait until the problems become a crisis. And we feel that there will be many advantages of a low-carbon lifestyle.

Membership is open to all at no charge.

The Dee Estuary is one of the North West's last surviving wildernesses. Every winter it is visited by thousands of wading birds. At times of high water, birds are forced to feed and rest on the limited beach margins including the shore at West Kirby in Wirral.

The Dee Estuary Voluntary Wardens scheme was set up by Wirral Borough Council at the request of English Nature fifteen years ago to protect the birds at these times and to monitor their movements. The data collected by the Wardens are being computerised at Liverpool Museum and contribute to Liverpool Bay Wader Study Group research.

The Committee aims to represent the interests of the local community with respect to planning, building development, conservation and enhancement within the Hoylake Conservation Area (HCA), which encompasses the Meols Drive CA and the King's Gap CA. Current policy specifically extends planning control beyond the immediate boundary of the designated areas to include the 'setting' of the HCA. In short, we are people who care deeply about our local heritage and our built environment.

Do you really know all that our local library offers? Here you can choose up to sixteen books at a time (children can take out eight) from over 12,300 books of fact and fiction for all ages, including some of the latest literature, sometimes only published weeks before.

If not available, the novel or biography you simply must read can be ordered, for a small charge, from elsewhere in Wirral or further afield. If you are fortunate you might even be the first  borrower of one bought at your request. Sometimes the library may not stock work by a favourite writer (even our competent staff do not know everything !) – then on a special form suggest it does so and explain why it should!
