Latest News


These days the world is full of information. It’s easy to think, sometimes, that there is too much information. But part of the problem is that to find the nuggets that we really want we have to wade through a mass that is of no interest.


We promise that this won’t happen here. If you want news about the latest developments in Ainsdale, this is the place to come!


Just choose your subject from the NavBar on the left, and CLICK. We will do the rest!

There are a number of items of news just at the moment.


Ainsdale War Memorial

The War Memorial on Ainsdale Village Green has seen more than ninety years since it was first set up, and in the years since has developed a need for a little TLC! In a major project for the Society, the Memorial has been updated and refurbished, ready to face another century. Read all about our project on the War Memorial page.


Flowers, Flags, and Christmas Trees.

What do these three disparate items have in common? Ainsdale Civic Society. Why not go to our webpage to learn more about a community project?


Greenbelt Development

There has been much speculation recently about plans to use Greenbelt areas for additional housing developments. We will keep track of what happens on our Greenbelt Development page


Jim’s Path

The Society, and member Jim Reed, have been campaigning for years to upgrade the path running alongside the railway from Merefield School towards the Coastal Road and the Nature Reserve. Read how Jim’s Path is now a reality.


Olympic Torch

Friday 1st June 2012 saw a once-in-a-lifetime event take place in Ainsdale as the Olympic Torch passed through the centre of the village on its way, eventually, to London 2012. Go to the Torch page to see  the relay as we saw it!

Railway Station

The Civic Society has been working with Merseyrail to improve the appearance and facilities at Ainsdale Railway Station. This has culminated in the Society ‘adopting’ the Station. Take a platform ticket to see what it is all about!


Sheep Grazing

There has been much information and misinformation circulating about the proposals to graze sheep on the Ainsdale and Birkdale Dunes. Go to our Sheep Grazing page to read really reliable information!


Village Green

The protection of the Village Green represents a significant success for the Society, with the registration of the Green, which will safeguard its future for village residents. Read the story on our Village Green page.
