THE Wirral Show, The Egg run, the wirral kite festival, and the wirral hot air balloons across the river all gone, how can the wirral bring people in to spend money when there's nothing to do over here. think

Loc: Wirral
What an incredibly negative post to start. The Wirral has been an amazingly popular place to visit years before any of the things mentioned and will continue to be. Without arranged activities there are still so many things to do:

1) Walk parts of the Wirral Way.
2) Visit the dock systems watch the boats coming and going.
3) Go up to Eastham, visit the Tap, see the bikes.
4) Take a blanket down to Birkenhead Park, watch the ducks on the lakes and relax.
5) Head up to West Kirby walk out to Hilbre Island.
6) Go down along the waterfont, find some fishermen, ask and learn and have a go yourself.
7) Build sand castles on many beaches.
8) Go for a nice swim at Leasowe life guards present in Summer.
9) Visit Williamson Art Gallery & Museum.
10) Go to Dibbinsdale Nature reserve.
11) Go and see the Butterfly Park behind Bebington Station.
12) Head down to the Gunsites and watch the sunset.
13) Visit some of the many decent real ale pubs and enjoy some locally brewed ales and enjoy a bite to eat.
14) Go to Birkenhead Priory, a gem in an eclectic town.
15) Get a Saveaway and get out on the Ferries and head around the Wirral by Bus and Train and visit places you've never seen.
16) Go to the bird hide at Thurstason it's amazing.
17) Rock Pool at New Brighton, so many star fish right now it's amazing. You don't need to be a kid to enjoy it.
18) Get an OS map and find some nice footpaths across parts you've never been before, see what you find.
19) Go Geocaching, Google it if you don't know, WIrral is a great place for it.
20) Stop whinging about things that are no more, and enjoy what we have on this wonderful peninsular.

I was not whinging
I was trying to point out that the council wants to make money then stops the things that bring in the money

but if that makes me a troll so be it

troll it's like a new word that if we don't use it the world will end

On a lighter note I had a fab cycle ride around the coast after work today enjoying this strange yellow thing in the sky. :)))

Nobody accused you of whinging or of being a troll: where did your persecution complex come from?

I wasn't saying you were a troll, I hate the word troll but anyway just saying if you want to do something on the Wirral you couldn't be in a better place, my small list is a tiny chip in a massive block of stuff to do. Why do people have to spend money? Wirral contains so much stuff to do for free it's amazing.

It's sad about the things that council's have had to stop funding but to be honest I would rather lose the council funded so called entertaining events and just let them concentrate on looking after those who need it.

personally I would rather the coucnil stopped paying for fireworks displays, but spent more on providing for people in need, but I understand the need for balancing between the needs of people and the 'face' of the council.

I have lived on the Wirral since I was 10 and I'm well on the way to being 40. I've seen many changes that have affected me and my family some for worse and some for the better, but at the end of the day Wirral is a beautiful rich of nature fantastic place to live and to visit. Why should people spend money on ice creams and burger van visits and naff flashing crap that is sold at council firework displays why not spend our money on a decent food shop and go for a nice picnic on a day out, I'm a little fed up of negativity, not from you but from people in general and look forward to the day when people are praising the wonders of the places they live.

Great pics Kathryn, I visited on the weekend of the 70th BOA and it was amazing to climb the tower and see down into Lairds and along the river. It's great that they now have toilets as if you are on foot it's a bit out of the way from town. Inside the entrance, there is a tiny unsuspecting money donating drop box thing, very out of the way but I always try to drop a quid in when I visit. have you been in the chapel? The roof is amazing.

Pretty comprehensive list there Sallybear. Don't forget Vale Park - it has been entertaining families for such a long time.

Royden Park is a bit nifty too.

I would rather WBC fix the potholes than spend valuable funds on that stupid light and so called fireworks parade around Marine Lake last year, that really was a gross waste of money.

Sallybear,while I think your list is very good for people that live on the Wirral, I think what Edd was talking about were the one or two day events that draw in thousands of people and a lot of reveue every year.

I see your point Dilly, but when there are big events that bring people to the Wirral what DO they actually spend money on? Parking charges, ice-creams and burgers from vendors, are those vendors local businesses? Does our local economy actually benefit from events like this?

I think the list is a decent start of some of the things i like to do to be honest, perhaps people could add to this the things that they like to do, just to give people some ideas.

I've never been to Vale Park smile Yet
