'Friends of Beechley Stables' was set up about two years ago to raise funds and public awareness of the facilities available in Harthill Road, Liverpool. Stable yard duties have expanded to include organising open days, promotional merchandise, photo shoots and publicity, as well as organising more rider activities and going to RDA competitions. Within one year Beechley was visited by 'the REAL Father Christmas', saw baby Jesus in a stable and Elvis enjoying a Summer Fair. In the words of one trustee "It makes you laugh, tugs your heart-strings and keeps you sane".
