Consultancy with a community group
Wellclose Square is one of London’s oldest public squares and located close to the city. Following trial markets, the residents formed a community interest company to develop the market further. We acted as an adviser to the CIC to enable them to deliver markets across the summer holidays with a view to bringing back a regular market the following year. We became a member of the working group focussed on funding opportunities, market strategy and operations, trader recruitment and built local networks and London-wide partnerships. We also ran communications on their behalf across social media channels and executed a local press campaign raising awareness of the market both to attract traders and customers.
