Subject: Sunday afternoon: Malik Al Nasir at St George's Everton this Sunday & some planting/collecting in Everton Park
If you’re free on Sunday afternoon, there are two things happening in Everton. I’d be grateful if you could ask / share with a few more people who may be interested too.
At 4.30pm in the Grade 1-listed architectural wonder, which is St George’s Everton, Malik Al Nasir is giving a talk on the first day of Liverpool’s Black History month. Malik will unearth stories of his ancestors, some of whom are buried in St George’s Everton graveyard, and who profited from the slave trade. Malik has this year won the Social Impact research award for his research into complex histories of his ancestors and I heard him give a fascinating lecture at the Bluecoat during Writing on the Wall last year, when he talked about the sugar barons’ Tate & Lyle's connection with profiteering from children’s homes in the City.
We will kick this event off at 4.30pm so please arrive a little before for tea and scones from local Homebaked. You can register here:-
This is the recent story picked up by the BBC about a landowner in North Wales, who benefitted from inheriting wealth accrued by the Sandbach family, not wanting to be named.
Before this from 1-3pm, we are meeting with Friends of Everton Park at the bottom of St George’s Hill, further down from Netherfield Road behind the shops on Great Homer Street, where Peloton Liverpool have co-created the Mini-Roads layout where loads of kids learned to ride this summer. Next to that in the old fountains section, we’re planting a carbon capture garden with the aim thet it brings colour and scent and beauty to the space for kids to cycle around and families to enjoy next Spring/Summer. So we’ll be starting there, planting some plugs and cuttings, discussing the design of the Garden and collecting some Bird’s foot trefoil seeds from the flowers left on the hill. The Nature Garden will be open from the Mini-Roads for you to visit. No need to register, just turn up, and call me if you have any problems finding it. You can park at the bottom of Roscommon Street by St Peter’s Church and walk around the back of the youth centre and around the side of the Nature Garden….
Hope to see some of you Sunday,
