What's Your Granby Story?
For six weeks our What’s Your Story? writers came together to tell their tales of Granby Four Corners. With such a wide range of participants we heard local Liverpool stories from years past and aspirations for the years ahead. With the age varying from 7 to 70, we discussed the shops, the culture, the clubs, the history and of course the people. This group had the chance to express their stories about the past but also to reflect on how things have changed and what they would like to see happen to the area now.
As well as a weekly group, tutors Tony Wailey and Curtis Watt dedicated time to talk to residents of the area such as Hector Peterson Court, the Granby Somali Men’s Centre and Lodge Lane Somali Women’s Group. With help from the tutors, these spoken stories were shaped into creative writing pieces and poetry which has been combined into a book.
What's Your Granby Story? has now been updated and reprinted under the new title: From Pitt Street to Granby which can be purchased here.
