“Come down for lots of festive cheer – and if that doesn’t come naturally to you, we can help bring it on with some of our mulled wine . There’ll be braziers, roasted chestnuts and lots of bargains.”
So there’ll be all sorts of seasonal things, of course. But mainly there’ll be Granby and the welcoming people of the place. Things have been going well in Granby since the big let down of the last planned regeneration scheme failing last year. Since then the Granby 4 Streets Community Land Trust (CLT) has been working on getting the works the area needs done in small, intelligent packages, rather than one take it or leave it scheme. So Eleanor Lee and Hazel Tilly from the CLT will be running a special stall at the Street Market to explain to people where things are up to, who’s involved and, generally, what’s happening.
I understand Plus Dane will also be there showing some plans of their future involvement, having recently completed the renovation of one side of Beaconsfield Street. And Twitter tells me that Ann O’Byrne, Cabinet Member for Housing on Liverpool City Council will be there too.
So a celebration, a coming together and Liverpool’s best Street Market. As Joe Farrag, another organiser always says:
“Of the people, by the people, for the people.”
Don’t miss it.
Finally, a short film, of a typical 4 Streets Market and the joy that gets created.
