Imagine Formby are looking for ideas and inspiration for the ‘8 Alleyways’ in Formby Village

Imagine Formby are very excited about a project emerging from the Imagine Formby - Arts, Culture and Heritage group.

If you take a stroll down Chapel Lane and peek through the entries that connect with Sumner Road car park and those opposite, you can't help but notice what an appalling state most of them are in! Dark, dirty, uneven / broken groundwork, weeds and graffiti in some, too!

Pat Wordley from Imagine Formby said: “The alleyways can be unsafe of a night-time, as most are unlit. Only this evening, I had to coax down a group of youngsters who thought it would be fun to climb on the flat roof of Gifts Inhouse.”

“There are some wonderful examples of where communities have come together to transform spaces like these into exciting, artistic, green, well-lit spaces, that people actually want to see and feel safe in.”

“We have lots of ideas of what we could do, for example, street art, planting, light shows, archway entrances, naming them too, perhaps, and we have put together a bid for funding to get started on a program of change.”

“Even small changes such as weeding, painting fence panels, cleaning up, etc will make a positive difference.”

“Some of the alleyway walls have lovely, intricate brickwork which we want to preserve and feature, too! We will work with schools and youth groups as well as our learned friends in the Civic Society and anyone who wants to join in!”

“We invite all suggestions and offers of help. Who knows, maybe if some of Formby's younger citizens got excited about projects like this one, they might be less inclined to risk life and limb clambering onto unsafe buildings in dark alleyways, and get involved.”
