Loving Lodge Lane

There will be a three day love-in for Liverpool neighbourhoods next week.

“Loving Lodge Lane” celebrates all that is good in the area around Lodge Lane and gets communities working together while having some fun.

The event started in 2011 in response to media coverage of the 30th anniversary of the Toxteth riots and was aimed at making the area cleaner and greener.

“It is an opportunity for local people to show they love the area where they live,” said local Councillor Laura Robertson-Collins. “Loving Lodge Lane has been growing each year and this year’s event will involve a lot of cleaning, greening, and positive community activity in the three wards around Lodge Lane.”
