We want to get hold of the four former shops on the corners of Granby Street and Cairns Street and do them up.
As things stand, once all the housing work is done these four corners would be a major dilapidated blight in the heart of the new community. So we think it would be a really good idea for the Community Land Trust to be able to restore them and sort out new uses for them. Uses like - well what? What would your ideas be?
We were fortunate to secure some initial funding for a Community Heritage Project consulting with local people on the Four Corners and see what ideas we’d all come up with to give them a viable future that also reflects the history and culture of Granby. Following a number of workshop sessions with local community organisation ‘Writing on the Wall’ we developed 'What's Your Granby Story?' which gradually starting to piece together ideas about the future from everyone's shared and individual stories of welcome, home and workplace.
Copies of 'What's Your Granby Story?' are available from our monthly Street Market and this website!
