Well Street is changing – look out for the market survey coming your way soon!

 

WESTRA has agreed a new forward strategy with Hackney Council for bringing a market to the street on a monthly basis from January 2016.

 

A survey has been compiled by business and residents meeting in June and that is now on its way to be printed and circulated in the area.

 

We are also looking to applying for funding for a business start-up scheme, and to boost existing businesses and footfall in the street.

 

Come and meet other businesses and residents at our next meeting and find out more about how we can shape the future of our market street. The Council’s Town Centre manager will also be present.

150 year old market comes alive!

THE Well Street Community Christmas Market kicks off on Saturday December 13 with the 150 year old market street fully closed off for the first time in 30 years and more than 36 stalls on both sides of the street from valentine Road to Morning Lane.

Cllr Sharon Patrick, Speaker of Hackney, will be present to snip the ribbon and declare the market open at 11am.

“There has been a market here for nearly 200 years and the Christmas Market is about encouraging that to grow again with a new exciting market with local residents selling items,” said Ian Rathbone, Secretary of the Well Street Traders and Residents Association (WESTRA).

As well as traditional seasonal features like Mulled wine, home-made traditional cakes and Father Christmas, the Festival offers food, clothes, jewellery – and entertainments including face painting, the Albion Kids show boat, jugglers, and local musicians playing live on stage.

Local charity Hackney Quest – which the market is also supporting – will have some of their young people performing dance routines on stage at 1pm.

And the local Post office will be re-launched by the Speaker – it now offers all the services previously only available at main branches.

Jo Price, WESTRA Co-chair, whose family have run a florists shop in the area for more than 60 years, added: “A market is a community hub and we want to see it as a lively place where everyone from our diverse community can get together. There’s several cafes and a lively pub under new ownership, where people can sit down, have a cup of tea or coffee or other drink and relax for a chat.”

Terry O’Mahoney, WESTRA Co-Chair, emphasised: “We also have a full complement of shops here in Well Street market, with everything from greengrocers to hair stylists, from DIY to flowers, from health foods to opticians and dentists, two chemists and a Post Office which now does everything. In fact, everything you could want from a shopping experience is here. Come and find out more.”

Festival Organiser Kevin Jones said: “It’s brilliant – Well St Christmas community market was a fabulous event last year with kids, dance, music, families, bakers, jewellers, designers, food, juices, fashion, flowers, choirs, kids entertainment and the best of enterprising entrepreneurial Hackney. Don’t miss it!”

Other stalls will be selling sewn and cross stitched items, handmade Christmas cards and decorations, and stalls reflecting the growing local artist community in the area.

Thanks to the Chatham Ward Community First Fund, and Community Links for helping to fund part of the Festival, and for all the help from Hackney Council in closing the street for the day.
