King Street and Brighton Street are really depressing places these days. Most of the shops are boarded up and lots of smackhead/scallies hanging around. Apparently the Council have designated it as a shopping area to regenerate. Personally think it's too far gone to regenerate.

They have been talking about regeneration in that area for years but still nothing, tbh most of Seacombe, Birkenhead and Wallasey needs it

I can't see real regeneration happening without jobs. And by that I mean proper jobs. Well paid, skilled, permanent etc. And apprenterships too for the teenagers and young adults. A lot more employment and less inequality leads to real regeneration of areas.

It is, very depressing. To the extent that if I need to get anywhere that involves driving down Kind Street I will usually find another route, even if it's longer.

The problem with regeneration is that even when that happens, there is nobody to utilise it. What's the point of nice shops etc when people don't have the money to spend in them?

I think one of the only places that makes any money down there is Bargain Booze!

It may not be the most picturesque place in Wirral but there are some very decent people live around here. Some of us do try and improve the area, the neighbours in my street (just off King Street)come out and tidy the green space they pick up all the litter there and plant up the area with plants they pay for out of their own pockets. I am also a member of Traflea Community Garden which has a community allotment on the corner of Trafalgar and Lea Road which has just won an award from Riverside Housing for regeneration and has also been nominated for an award for 'Northwest in Bloom' which is run by the Royal Horticultural Society. we wont know if we've won till October but then but a nomination from a respected body like that speaks volumes about the commitment that local people have to improving the area. Before the Traflea group took on that piece of land it was a a run down site where a house had been pulled down that was used as a rubbish tip with bags of rubbish car tyres and old fridges dumped on it, now we have a beautiful garden full of flowers and vegetables, a definate improvement.
My neighbours and I have run a small neighbourhood group in the area for many years to try and solve some of the issues like antisocial behaviour etc a lot of us really do care about the area and will continue to try and improve it... I dont consider it to be 'polishing a turd' as you call it, the vast majority of the people here have strong ties to the area and do their best to try and make it a better place to live.
The problem the area has is that it has been blighted by the amount of Private Landlords that just really dont care who they let the houses to. We are all responsible for the area that we live in and as time goes by more people are becoming interested in doing more for their community.
We are still waiting to hear what the 1.3 Million pound funding that has been granted by the council will be spent on, we were told that King Street and Trafalgar Road where to be given a 'facelift'

It's great to hear of people like yourself doing these sorts of things, but it's just a shame that there are at least the same amount of people committed to causing trouble and ruining it.

Well done Handbag. You and your neighbours efforts are to be commended. It would be nice to see more community gardens and allotments set up around Wirral and the UK.

Indeed, well done Handbag. Hopefully you are finding there's a sort of tipping point (no pun intended). To start with, other folk think you are wasting your time and money and don't help. Then there comes a certain point when they think " hey - this is looking good". Then it starts to gather momentum.

You've obviously got the ball rolling - and some! Keep it up, you'll get there !!
