West Kirby Times reader Wyn Cooke would to publicly thank the staff at the local Lloyds Pharmacy (pictured) for delivering, on foot, a prescription during the snowy weather last Friday. Well done to them for offering good customer service!
With West Kirby being rather more hilly than other parts of west Wirral – Hoylake in comparison is really flat and Meols only has the railway bridge – it can be more of a problem getting around when ice and snow arrives, especially for those residents with restricted mobility. West Kirby of course has Grange Hill, Black Horse Hill, Village Road and Column Road to name but four steep roads.
But do we give-in too easily when winter weather arrives? Many West Kirby schools for instance closed by midday last Friday when many roads were still clear. Some would argue that schools, especially primary schools, are a special case as they have a duty of care and must make pupil safety top-priority. How many local shops closed early …probably not too many?
How have you found the roads, pavements and car parks in West Kirby over the last three or four days? The main roads have been gritted but what have the side roads and pavements been like? How reliable have the buses and trains been?
Have you say!
