Today (30 May 2018), the Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service visited City Quay to perform a Fire Safety Inspection.
As a matter of urgency, they have instructed us to completely empty all communal cupboards and restrict access to them. This means that, starting from today, the Maintenance Team be moving the contents of all cupboards into Casemate 12. There will be no exceptions. If you have items in these cupboards, then please move them immediately.
As part of the cupboard cleaning, we will be changing all the locks so that access is restricted to only the Maintenance Team. If you require an electricity meter reading, then you will need to submit a request using our ticketing system. Please provide your address and meter number.
Once we have the Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service’s full report, there will likely be other issues that effect residents, so please keep checking the website for updates.
If you have any questions, then please use the contact menu above.

We have been lucky enough to benefit from another kind and generous donation of fish for the Lake at City Quay. As you can see from the pictures below, they are a varied bunch.
The fish were picked up from Bury by James and Brian and placed in the Lake on the afternoon of 19 May 2018.
Thanks again to our benefactor for letting us rehome their fish.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to come along. Many items were discussed and I believe it was very informative and productive.
Minutes for the meeting can be viewed on the forum here.
I am sure you couldn’t have helped but notice the exemplary work of the Maintenance Team in getting both old and new fountains up and running on the lake.
You may be asking, “Why are they at different heights?”
Well the answer is so that we can optimise the electricity usage of the pumps by seeing how much power each height draws.
There is also the question about how much the fall from each fountain agitates the water. Agitation is needed to keep the lake aerated which keeps it’s eco system healthy. This will prevent the high levels of algae that we’ve seen in the past.
I hope this answers the questions I know some of you have been asking about the Lake.
The maintenance team at City Quay have set-up a number of ways to attract any unwanted ornamental fish so that they can go into our Lake.
We have a Facebook page called Herculaneum Fish. Please like and share this page so to give it as much visibility as possible.
We also have a number of adverts on a pet rehoming website called Preloved.
All you can do get the word out about this will be greatly appreciated.
