Toxteth Food Central Fire Recovery
We are really sad but are determined to carry on and rebuild our community dream!
This is a setback for the whole neighbourhood.
We are overwhelmed by the response of the local and wider community who have sent hundreds of messages of support and offered us their help. People have brought us pies, curry, fruit, cakes and despite the devastation, the community design team feels very loved and supported. Thank you.
We know we will need to find increased funds to keep the building project on track – and don’t yet know the full extent needed but these will include:
– Demolition/site clearance
– Additional security whilst we rebuild
– Legal costs
– Increased insurance premiums
– Planting fruit trees at the front of the site (scorched at front)
– New community information signs (melted in blaze)
We will be posting updates on facebook and twitter – and please come along and meet us at our next community cafe at the Grapes Community Food Garden, next door to Toxteth TV, Windsor Street
12-2pm on Friday 6th November.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and please help us spread the word by sharing this however you can.
We really, really appreciate it.
