Community artists and a team of supporters are putting the ‘art’ back into Eccles market as part of £50,000 plans to revitalise the town centre.
Community arts worker Fay Flatt and photographer Tom Reed are working with traders and their customers to collect stories and photos of market life for use in a permanent display inside the building. Their work and ideas from traders will also be translated by Ordsall artist David Lowther into a giant mural inside the building on Southway.
The market facelift is the first project launched by the new Eccles Town Team, after Eccles was awarded £50,000 from Salford City Council and the government through the High Street Innovation Fund.
The team is made up of local traders, community representatives, councillors and city council staff and has been set up to promote Eccles and drive activities to boost the town. The Town Team will be launched during national Love Your Local Market Fortnight (15 – 29 May).
