Planned Hoylake development will be 'high-class' cafe

AS A resident of Hoyle Court, Hoylake, may I write with regard to the article this week in the Wirral Globe, in support of the venture to demolish the unsightly derelict toilets on the promenade and replace them with a high-class, modern cafeteria.

Yes, there are plans to make available a selection of wines for customers to complement the food service; but as somebody who has full knowledge of the plans and the integrity of the proprietor, I can inform all concerned this is not going to be a wine bar or public house and will not be open in the late evening.

On the question of an Alcohol Free Zone, there has been a permanent bar and function room for years only 100-yards away on the promenade at the Hoylake Sailing Club, which is open until late at night, with no problems experienced.

This project has been eight years in responsible planning by the proprietor, who has taken into account all local residents' worries and conservation issues.

The cafeteria will also not be any "greasy spoon" but a high-class, modern seaside quality food service outlet.

Anybody doubting that and wishing to see the quality in operation need only visit the seaside cafe on the promenade in West Kirby opposite the Marine Lake, which was recently purchased and renovated to modern high standards by the same proprietor.

I see the number of walkers and bird watchers everyday pass by my window even in this cold weather and I am absolutely certain they would welcome the comfort of this cafe on their travels, and in the summer it would be a great asset to visitors on a promenade which sadly lacks facilities of any kind.

The bottom line is, it will be a cafe first with a small wine and beer support service, not a pub and not open late in the evenings.

Laurie Dalton, Hoyle Court resident.

I have taken part as a patient representative in the last year. I beg people to participate in this reform of the NHS.
I am stepping back due to age and health. However I have learned NOT to base judgement on poorly researched reports in the press. The recent scare over moving cancer services from Clatter Bridge to Liverpool was needlessly alarmist.
One should base your judgement on facts and not rumour or party political misrepresentation.
The value of politician’s assurances can be measured by Cameron’s promise “No more top down NHS reform"
The fact remains that reform is needed, and needs to be led by patients and medics. Asking politicians to participate is like putting the Mafia in charge of law reform
I am watching events in my home county of Cornwall. They are making the health bill look like a
rogue’s charter. The medics I talk to here, are divided in opinion, but are at least honestly trying to improve patient care. We reached the stage of the NHS being more politically correct than medically efficient It reflects a society dependent on common sense deficient computers operated by Graduates who went to UNI before acquiring common sense on the shop or hospital floor.
It is our society and self serving culture that needs reform THEN politics should be brought back to serving the National instead of vested interests. Only after that, will this so called democratic society be ready to reform the NHS and welfare.
It is not only society that needs Integrity injections Mr Cameron. A good place to start would be on both front benches in the Commons
Some practises are looking for patients to participate both at surgery level and on the general Practitioners Commissioning Committees. HERE you will hear facts not party political guff Get involved and ask your surgery about it.
