Celebrating and promoting Hoylake: comments
November 7, 2012 admin
  • Contacting national publications in order for them to introduce Hoylake to the rest of the British Isles and beyond
  • Encouraging documentary film makers to explore Hoylake and show the public the diverse and beautiful nature of the town
  • Better maintenance by WBC, Post Office etc
  • how about making it more international and twinning it with jaipur, india (which is a world city)
  • Summer music festival ( the coral zutons etc ) Film festival ( Daniel Craig Glenda Jackson ) Golf packages
  • Hoylake needs an events committee – made up of Council, police, residents, meeting regularly to promote more events in Hoylake.
  • Need better promotion of events and Hoylake generally.
  • no
  • what ever events are created it must be ensured that they are self funding. as someone who was deeply involved in organising and running the chamber christmas event in the past i am conscious of resistance in the village to such events
  • Will always be a chicken and egg situation needing something worthwhile to promote before you can do so etc. Hoylake has to generate its own USP for people to visit. The lack of a Centre and parking problems discourage this.
  • new hotels at kings gap and royal boutique could proved good oportunites to promote hoylake
  • The more Hoylake can provide services to the community then people will stay locally and spend their money and other people will be attracted to come and spend money in Hoylake from surrounding areas
  • enter Hoylake in the floral  villages competitions  more hanging baskets on all shops  and  planters along the street  instead of  trees that cause  leaves  which  can cause slipper floors     and encourages animals to foul in the street and be tied to sa
  • a market day….farmers ….antique….general …etc
  • No
  • more family outdoor events
  • I think the recent cinema nights are a great idea.
  • BUILD A SKATEPARK!!!
  • A personal gripe, but the Welcome To Hoylake sign oppo. the petrol station is dreadful.
  • Summer music festival on the beach (yes risky but could be amazing) community BBQs eg. after lifeboat day on the beach (its so sad that everyone just goes home) entertainment should go on later.  skateboarding or acrobatic cycle displays, kite flying fes
  • Attractive signs will only really benefit local people. A regional campaign is needed to attract new visitors
  • more use of community centre.  film evenings a great idea – perhaps sat morning films for teenagers and/or a more regular film slot on a friday or sat evening.
  • More emphasis on the “”seaside”” heritage, more encouragement for arts and cultural activities (both local and outside bodies), – and less emphasis on the drinking culture!
  • Much more promotion of Hoylakes attractions in magazines etc – there are a number of local publications which could provide a forum for this articles etc
  • There is a huge amount of artistic creativity in and around Hoylake and Hoylake is playing a leading role in this part ofthe Wirral in bringing different kinds of arts to the community. Lots of support needed to ensure that we keep that edge and dont let
  • An annual food festival week including producers, chefs and restuarants.
  • Produce a high-quality brochure for Hoylake that can be placed in, for instance, hotels and public transport terminals nation-wide, on similar lines to Ironbridge in Shropshire.
  • skate park !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • We do need an identity, Hoylake is a special place, its just a little lost at the moment.
  • Anything that promotes Hoylake as a vibrant place to visit and live in is a good thing. Focussing on family friendly activities and events will in particular (I believe) improve the overall image. Being famous for a good night out is a double edged sword
  • Market Street runs out into Birkenhead Road and Hoylake fade out as you drive towards Birkenhead. Kings Gap Roundabout is a clear marker of the start of Hoylake So add something there to better signify to the non-local that they have arrived or are leavi
  • Promote the community activities available such as the local rugby club
  • Monthy/quarterly Hoylake paper or whats on in Hoylake. HVL do a great job with the website but not everyone uses the internet. These could be distributed to the new hotels in Hoylake.
  • I have allways said Hoylake could do with a music festival down the beach in the summer it would not have to be a huge one
  • Its been really great having the likes of oxjam in Hoylake. However i do feel this could be so much more like the Matthew street Festival. More out door acts should be put on.
  • Its important to listen to the views of all of Hoylake and not to focus just on the business aspects, important as that is. The silent grumblers also live in Hoylake and may need to be actively sought out.
  • More historical links in the food offered…Hoylake used to be a fishing village…and a seaside resort we need more food such as traditional fish and chips, local seafood (if safe), real old fashioned ice cream, real ale etc
  • Carry on promoting the village brand
  • no
  • Hoylake is dieing it can not grow or bring new life into it, till the issue of more access to the other side of the rail track is sorted,it cant expand. Any development of the land on the other side means more income for West Kirby. You can see the diffe
  • Continue to build on excellent work
  • As before, a small purpose built arts centre incorporating an independent cinema that could cater for all tastes. Maybe proper established food fairs and local food markets. Possibly a weekly street market.
  • Arts festivals etc ….. Hoylake has such a creative community
  • Identity, identity, identity! Give Hoylake a purpose
  • expand the hoylake arts festival, use the RNLI bank holiday to expand upon, we have a captive audience there.
  • I am in west Kirby sea cadets and i wish wish we could  do a parade down in Hoylake.
  • A small Art gallery would be fantastic.  We have so much creativity in Hoylake and whould celebrate it.
  • annual contests should be held in Hoylake for example skatepark contests
  • It is nice that Hoylake is that little bit quieter and does attract more local residents. Sometimes in West Kirby on sunny bank holidays it can attract the wrong type of people,many times people come from afar and you see people drinking on the beach lo
  • Good to see improvements in Hoyle road centre – the recent progress needs to continue so providing cultural centre – art, film and music events.
  • Recent TV and radio coverage has been great.
  • the only way to attract people to Hoylake is to have something for them, not just golf- eg boating, horse riding etc. and more public toilets.
  • WBC seem to be obsessed with signs!  All the advertising in the world will not improve Hoylake in any way and will detract from its unique qualities.
  • Specifically festivals have not been well promoted in the past. Maybe a big, clearly visible and up to date “”Whats on in Hoylake”” board somewhere in the centre would be a good idea!
  • Signs . NO
  • Whilst attracting visitors from the region should be encouraged, it is also very important to make more local residents appreciate the area and patronise its businesses. A signed town trail could be developed. Also, Hoylake-with-Meols built-up area is for
  • Last years events were excellent
  • The street behind Market St is a prime example of a space that could be used for a street party for example for the up coming Jubilee (including the car park adjacent to the small business (builders merchant)
  • Beach sports, ie volley ball, football enhance the sand yachting annual championnships (no mention of it on local radio/tv last year) motocycle sand racing was popular years back (get that back)
  • No sighns will be required if there is a “”destination to be at”” is fostered by events, parties, street vendor days and a MARKET (small) like farmers or craft style (interesting)
  • Promoting tourism is good – but services will need to be improved (such as public toilets on the promenade, and how about getting that promised cafŽ actually *built*?).  I dont think you can generate civic pride just yet, Im certainly not proud of Hoyla
  • People go to West Kirby because of the Marine Lake and Hilbre Island. We have a good prom but are against any commercial development (eg the cafe on the toilet site not progressing) Red Rocks is wonderful but there is no parking. I know a couple from Stou
  • Somewhere for amateur dramatics. Bring back a second theatre for live shows Remember the Gang Shows? Have a laugh and sing.
  • Bird watching needs to be promoted. The beach area this winter has been more spectacular than normal this winter, hundreds and thousands of migrating burds have been here this year with a handful of people watching. This is a tourist opportunity.
  • Enjoy walking along the prom, but it looks so sad and neglected. We need improved paving, railings, less concrete blocks, better seating, shelters. Containers for dog fouling.
  • Promote locals groups or clubs already in existance. Advertising is expensive and small organisers cannot afford to advertise. Local halls could be supported too.
  • If you leave the beach as a wild life area you will discourage visitors to the area.
  • Keep library open please
  • Festivals celebrating specific events in Hoylakes history encourage visitors to the area.
  • Could be the eating-out capital of Wirral!
  • Better Christmas lighting. Have a promotional day with all shops & pubs getting involved, internet, papers, promoting it.
  • Hoylake doesnt really have a central point — no heart. Its just a long stretched out street of shops & businesses. It needs something more positive in the row. Something to make it as a centre of the town (knocking down the row and starting again would
  • The local food fair is excellent and more events like that would be beneficial for locals and also to attract more visitors.
  • Hoylake is boring things need to change.
  • Upgrade the promenade to encourage businesses & groups to make better use of the space – its a seaside but so far behind the times.
  • The art display along the Prom was lovely, as the Wirral show no longer runs, maybe a craft fair along the prom could be done.
  • Hoylake has a lot to offer but that is not well known.
  • Yes pavements area danger. Ive tripped many times . You must pay out more on claims, comparrison than making pavements better.
  • Film nights good. Street parties bad.
  • Once a year we should have a fiesta day. Here Market St by name should be a market. Here people can buy local or foreign produce. It will draw  in crowds, and even overseas produce. France, Italy, use Hoylake dont let it be a Marie Celeste.
  • Dont waste money on signs and advertising
  • A very important area of Hoylake is the beach & the promenade, but there are no facilities there for meeting friends, eating and drinking. I notice that the situation with the development of the old toilets on North Parade has been ongoing for over 5 year
  • Annual James Bond Festival, endorsed by Daniel Craig. Maps & digital interpretation
  • Hoylake has really lost it identity, and West Kirby has benefitted. I live on Meols Drive, still in Hoylake but rarely shop in Hoylake, and rarely eat or drink there since moving from central Hoylake, I prefer to go to West Kirby. Retailers need to stop
  • A music festival on Hoylake shore one day in the summer when the birds have stopped migrating. Make more of our two golf links.
  • Promote facilities available inc. newer ones like boating pool, RNLI museum, community learning facility at old parade school.
  • Promote Hoylake and show people outside the Wirral peninsular what a hidden gem Hoylake is from its beautiful coastline to its wonderful community centre the Parade.
  • Love the film night – great idea!
  • A Hoylake history focus at the public library or the community centre
  • Whats with the obsession with signs? Why not give everyone their own sign to carry round? The golf coast is the best idea to date to promote Hoylake. Building a reputation for Hoylake being a haven for artists (due to quality of light etc) would also imp
  • Street parties are great, film nights are, but the films are for the older generation only.
  • Confusion as to the boundaries between Meols & Hoylake – or is Meols part of Hoylake?
  • There is a danger of interfering too much in the visual appearance with too many signs – need to clarify what is seen as the identify to promote.
  • Think about the HAY FESTIVAL ETC.
  • I always enjoy looking at photographs of years ago and how hoylake has changed. Maybe some photographs displayed somewhere would be nice. More use and celebration of parks and flower areas.
  • 2006 Open at Hoylake wonderful, more please.
  • Improve WC facilities for visitors
  • hoylake used to have carnivals and victorian day with lots happening use to be fun
  • Hoylake needs tidying up with nicer shop frontage and signage before you advertise to attract tourists.
  • Potential for Hoylake to be like Lark Lane in Aigburth. High St from The Ship Inn to the Cottage Hospital is very run down and neglected.  The promenade has much potential as a pleasant place to walk.
  • We need to do something to Hoylake before we start promoting it
  • Hoylake is a lovely village – we have a great seafront that isnt used to its full advantage and I praise the Community Centre for bringing in new ideas and events – more of these would be welcome.
  • Play on the strengths of the town. Promote the beach and golf activities more effectively Better parking facilities for beach areas between Kings Gap and Red Rocks.
  • Im not sure about civic pride posters and signs etc. To me this sends out a message that there is a problem.  A strong calendar of events – produced well in advance so it can be marketed outside Hoylake would be good.  How can Wirral Council Tourism
  • This .org website is a great way to promote Hoylake – well done to all involved.
  • There needs to be far less emphasis on alcohol-related night activity, as this drags area down and makes it look seedy.  Much is being done currently around area and this needs to continue, with as much support as possible for new ventures, volunteer gro
  • Hoylake, its name identity etc is all about the beach/sea. It is spectacular and a world class kite/land yacht venue. Its featured on the cover of this document. Lets keep it clean and promote it properly. Digging away the sand and creating pools of wate
  • As stated in section 2, the beach should be improved. The council have erred in removing sand. Hoylake beach was good only 1 year ago.
  • Information/tourist office necessary – easily seen/access manned by local people, smaller version of the Wirral Peninsular Guide purely for Hoylake. Picked up Wirral Guide in Chester not on the Wirral
  • (See section 4) What about a Hoylake Trail leaflet to take visitors round the town identifying parks / buildings / events of interest. No info on the Prom for instance of the depth and significance of the anchorage there and its role in the development
  • More could be done on the Wirral Wack day – Perhaps a local brass band, mobile butty bars – hot dogs. On day of 10k run in late summer, more could be done to make it more vibrant – similar to above suggestion, butty bar / coffee bar for the supporters an
  • The obvious spin offs from the Open Championship and Peter Alliss Champion way of the area and its beauty, have beneficial factors in the short term, to attract more visitors But 6a, I feel if the area was promoted in the North West /  Yorkshire regio
  • Festivals of Firsts last year was great! Not in long enough we thought. Better advertising of acts at various venues would be good throughout the year.
  • More local art events & cultural. Show Viking heritage. More cohesive website coverage. Even locals do not know about some events.
  • Promote existing festivals and events more widely and in good time
  • We can only promote Hoylake once the other improvements have been carried out.
  • Please could there be an approach to Carr Lane Industrial Estate from the East side/from motorway so cut out heavy traffic down Market St to cross railway
  • I like Hoylake as it is. If I wanted to live in Blackpool or even on New Brighton prom. I would move there. What needs improving is the promenade which has been allowed to fall into disrepair.
  • The sign by the petrol station is poor, & on the wrong side of the road, has hardly any impact.
  • Public toilets desperately needed in Hoylake village – both previous toilets have been closed for some time (one in Melrose Ave, the other in Albert Rd. How about an alarm to sound in Hoylake Police Station when damage to toilets is being done? At the mom
  • NB Golf events of an international nature do not necessarily increase trade in our shops. Why would people visit Hoylake except for all the beach offers. Apart from the shops what else is there?
