What is happening on the Hill?
The Windmill will be open again on Saturday, 10th August, between 10:00am and 12noon with last entry at 11:45am (admission is free). The Windmill has been well preserved internally and is certainly worth a visit with great views from the top. Bidston Lighthouse will also be open on the same day from 11:00am until 1:00pm again, admission is free but you must be a member of the Friends of Bidston Hill to enter. You can join on the day and a family membership is only £5.00 for 12 months.
On Friday, 30th August, we are having our Teddy Bears Picnic (weather permitting). This is especially for the little ones who should bring along their favourite Teddy to be measured and weighed. They will be able to take part in our Teddy Bear hunt and may even win a prize! (meet at the car park near the Tam O’Shanter Farm at 12noon).
A little later in the year, approaching Halloween, we will be holding our annual Ghost Walk, involving spooky tales by Tom Slemen which include some strange and mysterious happenings that have taken place on the Hill in the past. This was such a great success last year that we are extending the event over two nights, Friday, 25th & Saturday 26th October, commencing at 6:00pm. Places are limited and booking is essential, fees and booking details will be confirmed nearer the time so keep checking our website. (please note, this event is not suitable for the under 10s).
Our good and knowledgeable friend Stephen Lyus will be taking us on a guided Tree Walk of Bidston Hill on Wednesday, 30th October at 2:00pm. This will provide an opportunity to learn about and identify the various trees on the Hill and will give a fascinating and interesting insight into this subject. Again, this is free of charge and we will meet at the car park near the Tam O’Shanter Farm.
That’s all for now so keep checking our events calendar just in case there are any variations with times should any circumstances change.
Hope to see you on the Hill shortly.
