This event is part of a spring programme of activity which has been supported and funded by Stapleton Road Working Group. The group was set up in February 2011 to tackle the negative perception of the road and to bring together residents and traders to improve the neighbourhood. We’ve said goodbye to the shocking news headlines and we’re creating a street for families, smiles and lasting change and we want to share this with the city.
Hook, Skip, Repeat is a free event as part of Mayfest 2013. It will take place on Saturday 25 May from 11am to 4:30pm outside The Coach House on Stapleton Road.
