New Traders Association established in Huyton Village Centre

by Jonathan Kearney

Huyton Village Centre’s transformation is well underway and now a group of businesses have established the Huyton Village Traders’ Association to help to shape the further development of the Village Centre.

The traders are working alongside Save The High Street, who are delivering a bespoke COVID-19 Recovery and Resilience programme for businesses funded by the Council.  Save The High Street will continue to provide support to the Traders’ Association over the next 12 months, helping to develop its aims, objectives and governance arrangements.

The Association consists of local businesses with the desire to work with Knowsley Council and other stakeholders to improve Huyton Village Centre. The aim is for the group to have a clear voice and share their views, helping to guide and shape the future plans for Huyton Village Centre.

The Association consists of a cross section of businesses based in the Village Centre including Joe’s Stall, Goldencraft Jewellers, Rogues and Rascals, Harpers Furniture, Liberty Rose Children’s Boutique, The Coffee House and Dayzee Cards.

Cllr Tony Brennan, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “I’m delighted to see the establishment of the Huyton Traders Association. We have an ambitious 10 year development plan for Huyton and our existing businesses will play a key part in helping us to deliver that plan, attracting more businesses, visitors and investors into the Village Centre. Over the next 12 months, businesses and residents alike will have the opportunity to share their views around the development of the Village Centre. With the range of new businesses establishing themselves in the Village Centre, along with the development plans, there really are exciting times ahead for Huyton.”

Dawn Burns from the Huyton Traders Association added: “Businesses in Huyton are all extremely passionate about developing Huyton Village Centre and attracting more businesses and visitors into the Village. We have formed the Famous Huyton Village Traders Association in order work alongside the council to deliver a vibrant Huyton Village and to encourage businesses to work collaboratively so we’re all playing our part in Huyton’s transformation. The last year has been extremely challenging for us all, but it has been great to see the support and teamwork that is evident amongst our business community and the support we have received from the council has been outstanding. Together, we know that we can achieve so much more and I look forward to getting involved with the further development of Huyton Village Centre.”
