Community Makers Market

CMM logoThe Community Makers Market is an exciting project coordinated by Merseyside Expanding Horizons (MEH), a not-for-profit organisation focused on social inclusion. MEH works for a socially inclusive society in which all individuals can achieve their potential. 


Merseyside Expanding Horizons is based in the Joseph Lappin Centre, a Community Centre  opened in 2013 in memory of Joseph Lappin in Old Swan.


Based in the heart of Old Swan,  the Joseph Lappin Centre is a thriving multi-purpose community resource that provides a wide range of free/affordable services, activities,  meeting spaces and events for people of all ages of the community.

The Joseph Lappin Centre hosts other key organisations working in partnership to make a difference in the lives of local people. 


In March 2015 Merseyside Expanding Horizons was awarded by the Lottery Funded to create a monthly Community Makers Market in Old Swan.


The Community Makers Market aims to make Old Swan a bet­ter place to live by encour­aging the devel­op­ment of the area through social and eco­nomic features.


Indeed, the Community Makers Market allows to:

- Promote the social cohesion by giv­ing an opportunity to people to meet in a free social space
- Provide an opportunity to  loc­als to show­case their skills and talents through their stalls

- Encour­age entrepreneurship

- Boost the local economy

- Enjoy the community
