‘GIFT A SHIFT’ AT RELOVED

We are always on the look-out for helpers and volunteers and are asking people to consider helping out in the local community as their New Year’s Resolution 2021.

Why not ‘Gift a Shift’ and donate some of your time with a shift (or two!) at the ReLoved community shop?

We also have litter-picking equipment available at the hub and a number of community groups that always need spare hands (including our Love Wavertree Book Club and ‘Wavertree in Bloom’ group).

We hope that people will sign up to give an hour, a full day or a regular ‘day per week’. Please call in to the shop if you’d like to help out, or email us on lovewavertree@gmail.com

If you’re unable to join us, but love what we’re doing, you can also donate to Love Wavertree through Paypal via the donate button below. Every penny is reinvested back into Wavertree and helps the ReLoved community shop and hub to keep going.

Thank you so much for all of your support, and we hope to see you soon

“Something amazing is happening in Wavertree”

Liverpool Echo, 21st September 2019

ove Wavertree is a CIC and community campaign for positive action working by, with, of and for the people of Wavertree, Liverpool.

We are an independent collective of local residents who have come together with one overarching thing in common: We Love Wavertree.

Back in the Spring of 2019, our community rallied together in response to some negative local and national news stories that just didn’t look, sound or feel like the Wavertree we all know and love.

Building on the strength of our community spirit and the pride we share in Wavertree’s abundant built and cultural heritage, we have since worked together to make some wonderful things happen in our local area – from little things like community cuppas in our local cafes and making our streets cleaner with regular litter picks, to big events including Liverpool’s first ‘Car Free Day’ in September 2019, which saw over 5,000 people celebrating on Wavertree High Street.

We are pleased that our burst of community action has led to more positive media coverage! But, more importantly, we have seen our local area spring back to life and have loved getting to know our neighbours as friends.

Since opening in early July 2020, our ‘ReLoved’ shop and hub at 203 Picton Road has very quickly found its place as the beating heart of our community. All profits generated through ReLoved are reinvested back into Wavertree.

Working through the shop, we have been able to open a ‘Uniform Bank’ to distribute second-hand and new uniforms to local families, to offer a 50% discount on baby and children’s goods to foster carers, to make up support packages for refugee families living locally, and to create book packages for local residents who are COVID-19 shielding.

Working through the hub, community members have started a weekly running club, book club, ‘Wavertree in Bloom’ group, arts club, film group, photography group, crafting, sewing and making, poetry and writing groups. We have recently hosted our first photography exhibition, featuring works from our talented neighbours at Damien John Kelly House and we have started a campaign to save the iconic Abbey Cinema building. And there is much more to come!…

You can find our Mission and Values here and our Outline Action Plan and Investment Strategy (September 2020) is available to read online, here: Action Plan. We are currently working with the community in a process of review and strategic development, toward a full action plan in Spring 2021.

We are committed to a positive present and future for Wavertree as a happy, healthy area and welcome anyone who wants to join in and support.

We can all make a difference!
