Today at 07:47 AM Bowater social club. by Paternoster21

Hi there.
I remember growing up going to the bowaters social club in overpool with my grandad. I was quite young so dont remember it to well. I do remember a long drive way that led to the club which was at the back of a large sports field. I also remember that the sports pavilion was partialy burnt down.
Any info or pics of inside or out would be greatly appreciated.

Yesterday at 08:52 PM Found - bracelet, Prenton by philmch

I've found a lady's bracelet close to The Swan, Prenton.

It is a very distinctive design and having done a little research, it looks like quite a decent piece of jewellery.

As such, I'd very much like to re-unite it with its owner.

Please PM me or leave a message below. Thanks.

16th Aug 2017 7:09pm Through the Window: GWR Paddington to Birkenhead by yoller

In 1924, the Great Western Railway published a little booklet called Through the Window: Paddington to Birkenhead.

The idea was that passengers could take it on their journey and read interesting information on the places through which their train was passing, helped by text, maps and line drawings.

The 200-mile trip from Paddington Station in West London ended at Woodside Station in Birkenhead, with many passengers then taking the ten-minute ferry ride across to Liverpool.

The booklet divided the trip into eight stages - The Outskirts of London; The Chiltern Hundreds; The Midland Plain; The Shakespeare Country; The Workshop of England; The Severn Valley; The Welsh Marches; The Wirral Peninsula.

The attached pages from the booklet show the Wirral Peninsula leg of the journey, from Chester to Woodside. I hope they are legible.

16th Aug 2017 7:04pm HP Printer Half Touch Screen Not Working by fish5133

Not sure how touch screens operate. Other HP users had same problem but no real fix found on the net. Icons on one half of the screen still work but those on right side don't. Sounds like a part electrical/mechanical failure of the touch screen imo. Been a decent printer scanner till now. Still works as a printer from PC but doesn't want to scan.

anyone come across anything similar? cheers

6th Aug 2017 10:59pm Free One Wirral Festival Bhead Park Sat 19th Aug by fish5133

Free One Wirral Festival Bhead Park Sat 19th Aug 11am till 4pm by main Entrance

Three local disability organisations, Wirral Mencap, Options for Supported Living and Wirral Evolutions have jointly secured £10,000 from the National Lottery to hold an inclusive community festival in Birkenhead Park next summer.

One Wirral will be a festival for the whole community, celebrating the diversity of Wirral and all the peninsula has to offer. It will bring together community groups from across the borough to showcase talents and activities such as dance, drama and music, and will encourage people to find a new hobby or join a new group in their area.

6th Aug 2017 8:36pm I remember .... (Folly lane, Wallasey Village) by Snodvan

I remember that a few years ago "we" ie WikiFolk, had a discussion about a building in the upper part of Folly Lane, Wallasey Village ie looking up towards the church from the village road. For sure there WERE originally several buildings between the church walls and down to the main village road.

First there was a row of cottages parallel to the village road that sloped upwards because the ground slopes upwards towards the church. Just below that row of cottages was a path alongside a tall stone wall that eventually led into the curchyard. That route was blocked off (guess) in 1960s and the site of the cottages has now become the Health centre.

However, the building in question was a taller one lower down towards the Village Road. I can be seen in the pic below. Such a tall building with windows at a high level - but not below - must have had an unusual duty.

I THINK we decided that it had originally been a smithy but that later it was used to house the (horse drawn) Village fire engine.

I cannot find the original conversations to refresh my memory about this area of the Village. Can anyone help?

3rd Aug 2017 9:58am Stan Kroenke 'Dispicable' by granny

If you have any care for animals , can as many as possible, sign this please and share.

Tell Arsenal Owner Stan Kroenke To Stop Supporting Trophy Hunting.

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke has launched a sickening blood sport channel in the United Kingdom which not only advocates the hunting of defenceless animals, but encourages it.

We believe that, not only is this not compatible with being the majority shareholder of Arsenal Football Club, but it is also not compatible with the Premier League or any of its sponsors. We believe Koenke should stand down as Chairman of Arsenal Football club and sell his shares.

Stand with us and we will ensure this message gets to Arsenal Football Club & the Premier League. We cannot allow this man to remain in charge of the clubs destiny.

Please sign to ask him to STOP supporting trophy hunting.

2nd Aug 2017 11:51am Birkenhead General Strike newspaper, May 1926 by yoller

I'm just sorting through some of my stuff and I found this interesting item. I don't know if I've already put it on the forum, so apologies if I have.

It's a single-sheet newspaper issued in Birkenhead during the General Strike in 1926, published by Willmers. Presumably the Birkenhead News staff were on strike and this was printed by the proprietors.

You should be able to read the individual stories by zooming in.

Which unsolved ,ancient or historical mysteries, would you think, hope, like to see, or even expect could be solved this century.

Time moves quickly and almost 20yrs since the Millennium .

I'd like the Arch of the Covenant found. (doubt it will be and might not even be admitted)

So everyone knows what I'm talking about. These were the instructions given and written down.

After that, I'd like to know what happened to Lord Lucan

30th Jul 2017 11:21pm Cats and dogs. by Excoriator

We have a dog. One of our neighbors some doors away have a cat. It is quite a friendly animal and enjoys a stroke if you have the time to spare.

It seems to have decided to visit our dog from time to time and sits on the windowsill outside whilst the dog barks and whines at it from inside. From time to time it dabs at the dogs nose through the glass.

The other evening the dog decided it wanted a walk after dark and we set off, equipped with doggie bags and a torch to see the inevitable droppings. Along the way, the dog paused to sniff at something dark. I let her sniff for a time. As it was dark, I couldn't make out what the dark patch was so I got the torch out and found it was the cat, stretched out in a relaxed manner on the ground and gently dabbing at the dogs nose - claws retracted - as she sniffed away. Both seemed utterly relaxed in each other's presence.

This behaviour is quite alien to the dogs usual reaction to cats, which a lot less benign to put it mildly.

I suspect its because the cat seems to have no fear of the dog. Were it to run away, the dog would no doubt be off like a shot in hot pursuit.

30th Jul 2017 8:24pm Mirrored sliding wardrobe doors by kittykat

3 large mirrored wardrobe doors. These are well used and hopefully still of use to someone. One has a crack in the corner and one I think maybe slightly buckled. These would need collecting from a second floor flat in thingwall and I would not be able to help with the carrying I'm afraid. You would definitely need a van too. If when collecting you think the tracks etc would be of any use you could have those too.

25th Jul 2017 8:52am No government help for New Ferry. by Excoriator

Our wonderful government, not content with cancelling plans for rail electrification across the north ( ) have now announced that they are not going to help residents of new Ferry who have had there homes damaged by the gas explosion in March. ( ).

The money is evidently needed for Crossrail 2, a £30 billion rail project in - yes, you've guessed it - London ( )

The EU was - and still is - prepared to spend big money anywhere in Europe where it was needed rather than blowing it all on Brussels. The regeneration of Liverpool was largely EU funded as was Manchester's for instance unde 'Objective One' funding.

Yet the EU is accused of being 'corrupt'! It may well be, but when it comes to corruption, they are evidently rank amateurs compared to the Westminster Government!

In a further irony, the refusal letter about New Ferry funding came from the 'Minister for the Northern Powerhouse'!

19th Jul 2017 11:38pm Clutch Problem by fish5133

Mini cooper manual
Nightmare: clutch or something packed in on A483 A55 junction outside chester helping to cause more havoc to the rush hour. Most drivers ok but the odd few gesticulating (as if you choose to breakdown in the most awkward place!!)

ADvice... Had a new clutch fitted just over 2 years ago (sods law just out of its 2 year guarantee!) ..25000 miles. Breakdown man said it could be a hydraulic cylinder problem which is in the gearbox...would that not have been renewed when clutch was replaced?

Clutch pedal right to the floor, there was a horrible metallic clunk just as it was failing and struggled to put into gear whilst on sliproad. Not a nice sound when turning engine over either.

Apart from that all home safe and sound

18th Jul 2017 10:19am Norman Thelwell -Artist by granny

Norman Thelwell, another of the Wirral famous, was born in Tranmere from a working class family.

He sold his first drawings - 15 sketches of chickens - at the age of 15, and, after leaving the local Rock Ferry high school a year later, got a job as a junior clerk in Liverpool.

His cartoons of Penelope and Kipper were famous worldwide but he did many others besides, and he had his first Exhibition in London between 6th January - 6th February 2004 at The Cartoon Art Trust, Bruswick, London WC1.

This same Exhibition was due to come to the Williamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead from 14th February - 18th April 2004.

Sadly, Norman Thelwell died at the age of 80yrs on the 7th February 2004, ironically the day after his first Exhibition in London closed.

Due to the sad circumstances, I don't know if his Exhibition was ever opened at the Williamson Art Gallery. I still have a poster advertising it and maybe someone might know if his work was ever exhibited here in Wirral.

I hope it was. His little pictures were brilliant.

17th Jul 2017 7:53pm Granny Pods by granny

Just been looking at Granny Pods. Seems a good idea for various reasons. A) It could give a place of escape; B) many people are using them as an alternative to care homes for their relatives.

Some seem very expensive, others not so.

Do you think they are a good idea, and a way of saving on care home bills in the future ?

Don't know about planning permission, plumbing, or waste but after the initial outlay they could be quite a useful addition to a home.

or maybe a Shepherd's Hut ? I quite like that idea too, and they don't need planning permission.
