We braved the rain on Friday and enjoyed the sun on Saturday talking to the public in Piccadilly Gardens about the Fire Station. Lots of people had heard about us on the radio or seen us in the Evening News and come down especially to get involved. Others were just passing and stopped to tell us their thoughts. It was amazing how much people already knew about the story so far. People shared their thoughts on the situation, their memories of living and working in the building and their ideas for its future. Look at our gallery page to see what ideas people were coming up with or to find your picture!
There was tonnes of support for a new Compulsory Purchase Order, lots of ideas and enthusiasm and over the last few days lots of new stories about the building have come out in the comments section of our facebook page. We will be compiling the information ready to present at the next stage of our consultation in June and in preparation for a publication in the coming months.
