Wouldn't it be great to get a Sunday market going on Myddleton Road. Has anyone ever explored this idea?
I was just reading the paper today and saw a story about a group who regenerate old arcades such as Granville Arcade in Brixton, filling empty units with independent retailers and creative spaces. I thought.. how could some of that spirit be transferred to Myddleton road..? I know there are lots of discussions about how it could be regenerated. Thankfully The Step is coming, which will hopefully kick start something, but also it got my mind thinking - a market would bring people to the area, you wouldn't have to deal with property / council / long lost owners issue of empty shops (although obviously it would be great to have them used in better ways eventually), and it would provide a place for local retailers to sell interesting stuff that you don't find in Wood Green!
My brother lives in Clapton and there are a couple of Sunday Markets. Chatsworth Road has become much more interesting with new independent shops. I dont see why Myddleton Road couldn't go the same way.
Look what Susie found re Mary Portas high street fund http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-16881291
Maybe we should do a Myddleton Road video and apply!?
Who is up for meeting at the Step to discuss the market idea on Saturday 24th March? Im going to get it mentioned in the next newsletter too. Open to all.

I'm away then, is that date fixed?
No can do any date - how about Sat 31st March?
I'm away from 21 March to 5 April, so a date before 21st would be great for me. Thanks Lucy!
Sat 31 March fine with me. And it would be great to meet in The Step.
How about meeting in April - Sat 14th? Better to do later as it will be mentioned in the newsletter which is only going out from 10th March onwards.
That's good for me. Good to get the idea in the newsletter too.
Ok lets go for that date. I don't see why we can't meet for a coffee before if anyone wants to - before you go away. Im around 1 Mar onwards.
Yes definitely - I'm up for meeting after 1 March. At the Step? Wed - Fri evenings good for me. How does Wed 7 March at 6.30 look, to get the ball rolling?
