West Kirby Today

Where the journey begins…

Visit Birkenhead School on Saturday 27th April for their Open Day where families will be able to explore the campus from Pre Prep (3 years +) through to Sixth Form.

Hear from the Headmaster, meet staff and take a tour of the campus with students who will be on-hand to answer any questions you may have.

There will be lots of fun and activities for everyone, from making grass-head planters in Pre-Prep to witnessing methane bubbles going up in flames in the Seniors' science lab!

There really is something for everyone to enjoy, so why not visit and see what more Birkenhead School could offer your son or daughter. It’s sure to be a wonderful event.

You can find out more about the School and register your attendance here >

The only thing the flood wall is doing is stopping the water from running off back into the river! How awful planning didn't consider this problem..

How does the water get back over the defences? What a waste of money.

It's called a flood defence wall , bistro is flooded, houses are flooded and road is flooded and it's the first time the flood defence wall has been put to the test and it didn't work 🤔👎

Anyone involved in this project should lose their position and the architects should be sued

Can't win, if they had done nothing there would have been uproar

Hoping the houses there do not suffer damage. Great to see the expensive, time consuming flood defences working well

Back at Council HQ there was a sudden avalanche of buck passing resulting in the blame ultimately being passed to the chap who makes the tea.

Is this a silly question, but if the ‘rising Sandhills’, (some call it sludge), in Hoylake was cleared and the sand levels lowered to what they used to be years ago, would this not allow the water to dispel better across the west Wirral coast? Seems to me if the sandy swamp pit is allowed to continue to get higher the water has to find somewhere to go which is why west kirby is facing what it is? Just asking 🤷🏻‍♀️

I can recollect less flooding when there wasn’t a wall. At least the water was able to recede then instead of creating a remake of West Kirby Baths.

Flood wall didn't work then?

Shocking waste of cash 🙈

20 million pound canal and Ducks in Morrisons car park . Money well spent Wirral Council

Leave the gates open next time...let the water drain back into the lake..🙄

Unfortunately we will get excuses and no real action for constituents that have contacted me . More money will be spent trying to rectify something that shouldn’t happen after £20 million spent. No one in authority is ever held accountable nowadays.

Comedy gold some of these comments 🤣👍

That went well, total waste of money, time and effort!!

I’ve only lived here since 2015 but I have never seen this much water on South Parade before. Are you all certain that the barrier is working as planned? Cos it looks like a waste to me. Are any cars floating?

Waste of time and money should of left it the way it was So carpark fees now 😡😡😡

So nice to see that the councils money has worked ever so well ......what a joke

We now have a new canal lane ..

I'd love to know what all the moaners out there would be saying today if the wall hadn't been built after that tide and those winds yesterday. Any damage caused would have been laid at the council's door for not doing anything to prevent it!!!

Oh brill,outdoor swimming pool at west kirby.......

It’s a bit wavey!

Barriers not working then?

16million pound walls doing a great job well done
