The Fountainbride Canalside Initiative (FCI) will host a very interesting event:
“Coming Alive!” event: Thursday 13th March 6pm Viewforth Church
In the next month the hoardings will be coming down around the site. Steps will enable the FCI to get down onto it and pathways will be constructed along the same lines as the eventual ways through the development. Building will not be starting for a while and so “in the meantime” actions are being planned.
After the success of the Grove Community Garden on Springside, a Grove 2 is planned which will include small trees and saplings – to start to green the site. Other ideas include the return of the Circus in summer as part of the Festival, an Open Air cinema, a Vintage monthly market and possible shipping containers for pop up accommodation for local craftspeople, boat builders, artists, social enterprises, small scale stalls, woodworkers, jewellers, upholsterers, machine shops, bakers,etc. Come along to find out more and add your ideas.
