A perfect warm and sunny day in July for a day out in Anfield. A place where we’ll be spending a lot of our time soon as me and Jayne Lawless of Coming Home Liverpool go on site with our next 18 houses. Today though is a day of rest, much talk and some play.
My small people, though not that small, are here too. My three grandchildren.
Unlike me they’re here to work. More later.
Who run a social enterprise together called FoundationMA, martial arts for children and adults. Today they’re running their popular Little Ninjas.
And I run into some more friends, Maxine and Ann Marie from Rotunda.
They’ve saved their lovely Folly, by buying the land it’s on. And have also successfully got funding from Power to Change to make it into a tiered garden and open air performance area. All good except a local councillor is strangely opposing their plans, whilst at the same time supporting a property developer who wants to put up yet more student housing right next to the lovely folly.
A campaign is planned. Expect to hear things a week on Tuesday!
A perfect day in Anfield, full of friends and sunshine.
And do get in touch with Clare and Simon at FoundationMA if you’re interested in Little Ninjas or their other martial arts work. I’m biased of course, but they really are good!
