We are so excited to share the fantastic news with you that the Love Wavertree community has secured a premises for a shop and Community Hub on Wavertree High Street (well, it’s 203 Picton Road, but we know it’s all ‘The High Street’ to us!)
We want this to be a place for the whole of Wavertree! All profits will be reinvested directly back into the Wavertree community.
We will be launching the shop on Saturday 4th July 2020, celebrating both our arrival into the High Street/ Picton Road family and all of the other brilliant independents trading across Wavertree as part of Independents’ Day UK (@ukindie – held on US ‘Independence Day’).
PLEASE NOTE: that we will be making every effort to keep everyone safe on launch day and ensuring that all social distancing and sanitising precautions are taken.
‘RELOVED’, the Love Wavertree shop, will continue in a similar vein to former shop resident ‘VMM’, primarily trading in vintage and second hand goods, but also stocking locally-sourced gift items and work from local artists and creatives. We plan to use the space as a meeting place for our community and as a base for Love Wavertree, and hope to explore further options to host local services in response to community wants and needs.
We will need plenty of help, volunteers and all sorts of skills and expertise as we set out together on this exciting new phase of our journey! Please send us an email if you have any thoughts, comments, ideas or would like to help on firstname.lastname@example.org and/or come down on 4th July to find out more – and maybe grab yourself a second-hand/ ‘vintage’ bargain!
