Well Street Market will be more than a market. It is an ambitious, exciting and bold project. We have a wonderfully diverse community who we encourage and support. We'll nurture young entrepreneurial talent by having a Teenage Market, give free economic and business training to local creatives by having a Student Makers market offering amazing design pieces unobtainable elsewhere. Integral to our market will be a live music stage where locals can book performance slots. We'll have a music mentoring program encouraging new routes into work. We are developing a community bee project and want to buy beehives and bee pollinators to make Well Street honey. We want a wireless network enabling cash free trading. We need money for the infrastructure costs to pay for our ambitious plans. We need to buy stalls, live music stage, wireless networks, bee hives , hanging baskets, Christmas lights. We need the crowd to pay for the training and staff that will help us enable to develop local talent.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Well Street will be more than a market, transforming it back to a bustling hive of activity, by regenerating the area, making it a 'go to' destination. We want our street to be filled with amazing produce, a space that unites the community, we want hanging baskets filled with flowers, Christmas lights, it to be a street to be proud of.
This whole vision is instigated by the Well Street Traders and Residents Association we're committed to improving the life of our local neighbourhood. It's a wonderfully diverse community that we want to support and encourage. Our plan for an innovative community market will strengthen the character of Well Street. Together we want to celebrate all the energies of our community and make it an exciting place to be again, bringing economic growth economic and social benefit to the area. We will create pathways into work, support local makers and producers and be an exciting new place for the community to come together and connect and build civic pride.

Well Street Market will be more than a market. It will be an innovative project that has our community at it's heart. We want to support and nurture our neighbourhood. Developed by the residents and traders it is key that business work together to make Well Street a destination. Our aim is for activities and events that happen on Well street Market are broad, varied and exciting, and will clearly benefit our community. The market is a weekly opportunity for the community to gather in their shared public space. This will be a market that puts the offer of healthy food at a central theme.
