Major footpath work on the Dales in August

Look out for some intensive work by Wirral Council to repair the footpath through the Dales which carries the permissive horse route.  Preparatory work is now underway with the main work currently scheduled to start in the second week in August: this will include the section which has worn down to become very narrow and steep sided.  The route may well be blocked for a little while and warning notices will be posted.

Open Day 15th September - Treasures of the Dales

On Saturday 15th September the Committee of the Friends with the help of the Ranger will be holding an open day on Heswall Dales between 11.00 am and 3.00 pm with the theme ‘Treasures of the Dales’.  Our aim is to attract more visitors to the Dales by helping people to appreciate the many interesting features of this local nature reserve, including its lovely views, and diverse flora and fauna.   Committee members and other volunteers will be on hand to guide people around the site, and point out the various natural treasures which can be found there - we will also be producing a map and supporting information to assist visitors.  Please join us  - we'll be based near to the Ranger's cottage. We look forward to seeing you there.
