NEW details over plans to transform a former council treasury building into a creative hub in Hamilton Square have been revealed.

Liverpool-based Make CIC is set to start work on the vacant building with the aim of changing it into a destination for arts, culture and creative entrepreneurs.

Set to be named Make Hamilton Square, the hub will also include a community garden, urban farm, cafe, creative studios and meeting space.

The team are also set to revive the 'millennium garden' into a community garden space.

Later this month a £5,000 campaign called #MakeHamiltonGrow will be launched to help with the initial set-up costs of reviving the garden and will go towards building planters, seats and bee-hives.

Earlier this year, Wirral's cabinet member for Culture and Tourism Cllr Chris Spriggs said: "As part of the legacy of our year as Borough of Culture for Liverpool City Region, Make Hamilton Square will support creative people and businesses in Wirral in 2019 and beyond.

"It’s a promising venture which will encourage new and existing talent to flourish, increase local entrepreneurship and help creative and digital companies to grow boosting our local economy.”

Local organisations will work with Make Hamilton Square to ensure new opportunities around creative entrepreneurship, craft, making and STEM skills are accessible to residents through educational workshops.

It is expected the hub could create £1.6m of social impact for the borough over the next five years.

Make CIC co-founder Kirsten Little, from Birkenhead, attended Wirral Metropolitan College to study Foundation Art.

She said: "There are so many good things happening in Birkenhead. We’re excited to start working with local partners to fit in and provide opportunities for the community that isn’t there yet.”

Make Hamilton Square is raising £100,000 of financial support to undertake the project - £5,000 of this total will come from the crowdfunding campaign and £23,000 will come from a grant from Wirral Council.

Other confirmed backers include Finsa, Arriva, Baltic Creative, FACT Co and Beautiful Ideas Co.
