Story Of Help

Shop exterior
Jackie Hall MBE and Loraine McKinley have for some time been involved in trying to enhance the quality of Hoylake life. They canvass local opinion and try to prevent unsuitable developments from ruining the town. They felt that Hoylake needed a forum to inform residents and groups, gather news and promote events.



When a shop in a suitable central location became empty towards the end of 2011, they secured a grant for 6,500 to take it over for 12 months and refurbish it. The grant covered outgoings such as rent, electricity, insurance, telephone, stationery costs and internet use. It was hoped that sales of items of interest would supplement donations to enable the shop to continue to be viable after the initial monies had been spent.
