Free event at The Cornhill Quarter takes you back in time

February 16th, 2017 by Sandy

Everyone is invited to an event at The Cornhill Quarter in Lincoln, on 17th (Friday) and 18th (Saturday) of this February, that will celebrate the fond memories and to create new ones for this area in the middle of the City Centre. The place is steeped in history and the Cornhill Memories event will provide a great opportunity for the local community of Sincil Street and The Cornhill areas to relive, recreate and share memories of a glorious past. Families and friends visiting The Cornhill Quarter of Central Lincoln can enjoy the event which will take them back in time.

From 12pm to 4pm, an old-fashioned horse and cart will offer free rides to families at the street end of Sincil Street, from outside Imp Travel. The experience tries to recreate how people in the area used to travel. There’ll be an old-fashioned photo-shoot also for children at a studio temporarily put up in the unit right opposite to Imp Travel. A free 5×7 photograph can be taken away b everyone on the day.

In recent times The Cornhill Quarter area, at the heart of the city centre, has been the most important refurbishment and new build retail development. A £70 billion million investment has been allocated and the first phase has seen the arrival of new brands. When finished, the scheme will rejuvenate, via a sensitive combination of refurbishment, repair, extension and new development, this area. This will be alongside the City of Lincoln Council’s new transport hub being developed.

Behind the development is Lincoln Co-op, whose Chief Executive, Ursula Lidbetter, said they are excited to be able to put on this free event and hope to recall fond memories and add new ones, for the public. They look forward to share the completed development and create more lifetime memories for Lincoln’s residents and visitors, she added.
