and historical performance style and has
always been a memorable way to spend
a summer evening.
Hillbark Players’ bi-annual ‘traditional’
Shakespearean presentations have both
entranced and delighted Wirral audiences

acclaimed production of ‘Macbeth’ in 2009,
Hillbark Players return to their comedy
roots with a riotously entertaining staging of
‘Shakespeare’s Sit-Com’, “The Merry Wives
Of Windsor”.
Disguises and complications abound as
love burns a hilarious path through the town,
in a tale complete with manipulative mes-
sengers, secret scandals, jealous husbands
and a final flurry of forgiveness in the Forest
of Windsor.

homewatch to find a solution to the ongoing problems. A leaflet is being produced by the
school providing information for parents regarding parking facilities within the area and
further meetings are to be held with the School Travel Group.
Regular patrols will continue over the following months in order to try and ease congestion
in the area.

Local Priorties this month

New artwork at church


An artist has been commissioned to create a sculpture in the gardens of St John the Baptist
Church, Chester.
Chester Renaissance working in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester has asked
artist Nick Horrigan to create a site specific artwork for the site of what was St James
Chapel – patron saint of pilgrimage.
The sculpture will be created from a tree stump of a diseased Whitebeam that is being
removed from the garden to the rear of St John’s as part of tree works to open up the area.

their latest production of ‘My Fair Lady’!
My Fair Lady was a raving success from the moment
it opened in New York on March 15th 1956, now in
the 21st century it is still one of the most loved musi-
cal romances.
Chester Operatic Society is really going to town on
a special production of this marvelous musical. This
is the society’s debut performance in Wrexham and
so they have chosen to present for their new audience
what promises to be a spectacular show for this special
‘Year of Culture’.
The longest running musical of all time, set in
Edwardian England the story tells of Henry Higgins,
a misogynistic, snobbish professor of phonetics who
agrees to a wager with his friend Colonel Pickering, that he can transform a flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, and make her
acceptable in high society. When he succeeds, the young aristocrat, Freddie Eynsford-Hill, falls madly in love with her.

Friends of the Meadows
In 1980 the Meadows had become so neglected that local resident Adele
Edwards formed the Meadow Users Association. Initially this was an informal
arrangement with the objective of
encouraging interest in the Meadows.
In 1984 this Association was formalised into
Friends of the Meadows with the primary aim of
involving local people in the management of the
Meadows, as an important area of local nature
conservation, with an emphasis on wildlife and
recreation value.
Friends of the Meadows primary objectives are:
l To stimulate involvement and interest in The
Meadows by imparting information to groups or
individuals.
l To assist in the monitoring of The Meadows by
carrying out frequent observations.
l To contribute to the Council’s Management
Plan, and to the achievement of agreed objectives
through the implementation of practical projects
under the guidance of the Countryside Officer.
l To seek funding to realise these objectives.
They work very closely with Cheshire West and
Chester Council’s Countryside Ranger and their
members assist with working parties to clean up
and improve the Meadows.

Currently they have approximately 300 household


and 16 local businesses as members. All members
receive our quarterly newsletter.

Friends of the Meadows organise regular social events and lectures for members, their
families and friends. Events over the summer include an early morning walk to listen
to the dawn chorus on Saturday 14th May, a Garden Party on Saturday 18th June and
a Butterfly Walk on Sunday 3rd July. For more information please look at our website

Awards for helping to avert tragedy
FIVE people have been given a police award after helping to stop a teenage girl jumping to
her death off Grosvenor Bridge.
A Cheshire chief superintendent’s commendation went to Sgt Anton Sullivan, Daniel Ray,
Ben Davies, Tom Quinn and Shaun Arathoon for their actions in November last year.
At one stage in the rescue Segt Sullivan was standing on a narrow ledge on the outside
of the bridge parapet, above a 50ft sheer drop into the River Dee below. From there, he
successfully helped the others to lift the girl back over the parapet.
The certificate said: “Their direct action is the sole reason a tragedy was averted. They all
acted spontaneously and without thought of the potential risk to themselves.”
