RESIDENTS in Liverpool have no excuses for staying in this summer, after helping to create a great going-out guide with the assistance of Arriva Buses.  The bus company has unveiled an innovative online resource to the town, in which all the recommendations have come straight from Arriva passengers.

Earlier in the year Arriva appealed for people in Liverpool to come forward and suggest their favourite places, and now all their hard work has been put to good use. The guide features activities suitable for all weather conditions including museums, shops and places to eat.

Nick Gordon, marketing manager for Arriva North West and Wales, said:- “The idea behind Arriva’s town guides website was to give something back to the community by asking the experts on Liverpool - the people who live there.  The town guides website has been launched this week and hopefully it will become a valuable tool for local people, whether it is to plan a day out with the family or to help find somewhere special for a celebration.

By working with the people of Liverpool we have already managed to create something that will help visitors and residents alike, but this is just the beginning. We want people to continue to help us and ensure that the Arriva town guides continue to grow and become bigger and better.  If you feel that your town is under represented or you believe there is a better chip shop or museum to visit – we want to know.”

Calling All Christmas Market Traders

GERAUD Markets (UK) Ltd is pleased to announce that following on from the 2006 Christmas Market, it has been invited by Liverpool City Council to run a similar event in the city in 2007. The event is set to take place from Friday 7 December 2007 to Saturday 22 December 2007 in Williamson Square and the surrounding area. 

The market will consist of traditional German style chalets complete with full exterior lighting displays and will open from 11.00am to 5.00pm up to and including close of business on Saturday 22 December 2007.

Whilst many of our regular traders are already committed to returning to attend the market Geraud Markets (UK) Ltd is now looking to provide trading opportunities from local businesses thereby supporting the local and regional economy. The location is expected to provide excellent prospects for traders in a city which already enjoys a reputation for supporting events and markets.

Special Events Development Manager, Andrew Grimshaw, said:- “In 2006 we put down a marker of intent for future years with regards to Christmas Markets in the City. The location on Williamson Square worked well and we have learnt lessons from the event.

We are confident that with the support of a number of stakeholders in the city we can make the event in 2007 a roaring success. We are looking to compliment what we already have with local crafters and gift sellers who may be looking to take their products to market. There will be no better place to do this than in Liverpool”.

To be in with a chance of acceptance for this year’s market, please contact Kristen Kininmonth on 0151 233 2165 to request a full information pack and application form.
