Granby Market is Back
Granby Market is back for the season on the first Saturday of every month, and now on Granby Street. If you want a stall contact Theresa
We also want at least 10 new stalls this year and can offer people who have never traded before a loan of up to £150 to help you get off the ground with set up costs and to get your stock – only repayable when you turn a profit.
We are also looking for volunteers to help set up and take down the market at the start and end of the day. If you want to help whilst doing great exercise with a purpose and enjoy a free breakfast contact:

Here's a bit of news on the four corners

The four corners project is what we are calling our aspirations for the four empty retail units on the corners of Cairns Street. We are currently in negotiation with Liverpool City Council about the future of these buildings as we think they will be an important part of a vibrant Granby Street in the future. Consultation will begin soon on what to do with these buildings and how they would benefit the Granby Street Community and will be led by Assemble and Michael Simon.
Drop in Wednesdays
!0:30 am - 5pm
Meet our CLT Staff
My name is Michael Simon and I am the Community Development Officer for Granby 4 Streets Community Land Trust. I have been working for the CLT for about 14 months now, however most of my working life has been spent in similar roles with the Granby and wider Liverpool 8 area. The best thing about working for my community is that I get to use skills built up across my career and my local knowledge in driving the community's aspirations forward - as a member of the community.

Meet the Artist

Hi my name is Becky, my background is in design and creative theatre. I have been involved in the Granby Workshop from the very beginning and I enjoy working at Granby Workshop because it allows me to combine all of the skills such as practice, knowledge and teaching into my job that I built as a freelance artist. This summer I will be taking the lead on creative workshops for young people, so look out for further details coming soon.


Thanks to Liverpool City Council our 10 homes just became 11. Our first 5 houses are now homes to families, those who wanted to buy one of our award winning homes have now been short listed and we hope they move in by June 2016.
We are keen to deliver more affordable homes across the four streets and discussions have already started about the remaining empty properties in and around the four streets. These are the properties that no one - as of yet - are developing and we are looking to see if there is a role for Granby 4 Streets CLT. We also plan to hold an 'open house' event so members of the community and beyond can come and have a look around our new properties and find out about any future opportunities.

This group has been planting, cleaning, painting up the neighbourhood for the past 10+ years.
But this is a new phase for Granby – if you want to find out more, have ideas for what you’d like to change, improve or start from scratch- come along to one of our meetings (dates below) or contact Helen Hebden, 22 Jermyn Street on 727 0088 or Eleanor Lee on 07477381533

Engagement Event 
Across May and June we will be asking residents, neighbours and all stakeholder groups in the Granby Street and beyond to tell us what they think of our proposed plans for the Winter Gardens 
The Winter Garden & Common House Project is a new collaboration between the CLT and Assemble, which has been funded by Arts Council England. Sitting in the heart of the neighbourhood, the Winter Garden will be a community-owned shared resource. Two derelict terraced properties will become an extraordinary set of spaces that will house an indoor garden, an artist residency-space and a community gathering place. The Winter Garden and Common House will be a beautiful, useful and accessible space and resource for socially engaged arts activities.
For further details contact Michael Simon or Rebecca Lawler on
Granby Workshop is a new social enterprise making handmade products for homes, launched by Turner-prize winning design/art collective Assemble. The workshop has grown out of the DIY, community-led rebuilding of the neighbourhood following years of dereliction. The workshop sells a range of products that are made - onsite - in Granby and all products are made by artists and craftspeople from the Liverpool 8 area. Granby Workshop
