Fun for all the family on County Road, Walton

A family fun day is taking place in Walton, on Saturday, 7 March 2015, to conclude a week of action to improve County Road.  The event is being held in the Tesco Car Park, on County Road, Walton, from 10am to 2pm with a range of activities put on for younger residents by Walton Youth Project. They include:-

Children's entertainment.
Face painting.
Banner making.
Mother's day arts and crafts.
Magic show.
Drumming workshop.
Cake decorating.

There is also an opportunity for people to have their say on shopping and business improvements.  The week long clean up has been spearheaded by the County High Street Innovation Group which has secured money from the Mary Portas fund to deliver improvements for the area. It has seen the City Council, businesses and residents working together to tackle litter, dumping and dumping. Councillor Roy Gladden, Chair of the County High Street Innovation Group, said:- "The week of action has been a great success and the fun day is an opportunity for families in the area to come along and enjoy a range of activities, and also find out more about our work to increase trade and prosperity along County Road."

On Monday, 9 March 2015, there will be a business conference workshop organised in conjunction with the Federation of Small Businesses at Everton Football Club, which local firms can attend.  Over the last year, 24 new businesses have opened on County Road, including a patisserie and clothes, wedding and blinds shops. 2 more are in the pipeline, 4 others have expanded and another has been improved. This contrasts with the loss of just 6 businesses.
