Ask York 4: City Centre Regeneration & Urban Renewal

The Ask York 4 Panel:

  • Pete Kilbane – Chair
  • Imelda Havers – Independent Regeneration Consultant
  • David Dunning – News Editor at Minster FM
  • Cllr. Ashley Mason – Lib Dem
  • Phil Pinder – York Retail Forum

Listen live here at 1pm and again at 5pm.  Click the red bell in the bottom-right of your screen to receive alerts every time Two Rivers Radio is live.

Ask York 4 focused on City Centre Regeneration and there were some fantastic questions and great debate form both the live studio audience and the panel.

Should there be a cross party city summit to tackle #York’s issues on #regeneration and behaviour?  Is there a lack of leadership in @CityofYork on this?

Discussion moves on pedestrianisation of #York – do you think having more #footstreets would be a good thing for the future of the city?

Would a tourist tax help the regeneration of #York asks @GSwinburn? @imeldahavers says as a resident she has no problem with #tourists but stag & hen parties are a strain on resources and we should focus on that.

Would a tourist tax make #York a pariah city or a leader? Views from the floor at #AskYork are largely in favour; lively debate now happening about stag and hen parties!

Phil Pinder of @YorkRetailForum and the other panelists agree that business rates are archaic and should be abolished. @imeldahavers says they are the bane of retailers’ lives.

What can we do with the large empty shops and could they house indoor markets? Phil Pinder of @YorkRetailForum is in favour; @daviddunninguk says demographics have changed; maybe city-centre shops have had their day & focus should be on food/drink/entertainment?

Future of the old BHS centre revealed!

Final question for #AskYork is about #recycling: questioner asks why #York doesn’t have segregated bins in the city centre – the state of #York is an embarrassment!

Great questions and informative answers. This is a not to be missed show for anybody that cares about the future of our city!

Details of the next Ask York to be revealed soon.  We’d love to see you in the live studio audience.  If you have any ideas or thees you would like us to cover please get in touch: tworiversradio@gmail.com

Black Rose Events – York

SO WHO ARE WE & WHAT DO WE DO?


We are a small hard but working team of goths. Our first event was in 2013 when two of our group decided that they really wanted to attend a high Goth, elegant, masquerade ball in the UK. However, they couldn’t find the sort of event they were after so decided to start their own. From small acorns , hopefully,  come mighty oaks as we have seen our event grow over the last 6 years.

The Masquerade Ball has always been the centre piece of our weekend. Elegant, in a prestige venue, in a gorgeous city. Joined by like-minded people, open to all who love dark gothic elegance. We have added  both a concert night and a trading event to the ball over the years.

 

The other two central aims for all our events are to create safe spaces for the alternative gothic community that are open to all who feel different – and to raise funds for charity. In the first two years we raised funds for a local hospice, that does excellent work, but in the last 4 years, we decided to raise for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation as it is a charity close to all our hearts in the alternative scene.

ABOUT THE CONCERT

Our concert   will take place on Friday 31st August 2018 at the Fulford Arms between 7:30pm-11pm and features the bands:-

They Called Him Zone – Dark post-punk mixing sultry Electronics and chewed up guitars     

 

 

 

Red Sun Revival – Powerful gothic rock with haunting violin melodies 

 

 

 

 

& headlining act Bad Pollyanna – Female fronted, guitar driven hybrid gothic rock!!

 

 

 

ABOUT THE BIZARRE BAZAAR

We will once again be holding the Black Rose Bazaar in the De Grey Rooms on Saturday 1st September between 11:00am -4:00pm.  Where a number of handpicked traders will sell unique gothic and alternative handcrafted items, alongside a gothic themed café in the bar area. Tea and cake whilst shopping you know it makes sense.  

 

ABOUT THE BALL

The  Jewel  in our crown  but for now that jewel appears slightly tarnished as this year’s Ball  theme is ‘Wasteland’ … an elegant, glamorous and very decadent ball has been interrupted by a post-apocalyptic event… the ball is now only a memory of this elegant affair…. the glory of the event has faded but the party must carry on….

And finally the reason we do this, the charity for which we raise money

THE SOPHIE LANCASTER FOUNDATION

Sophie Lancaster died on the 24th August 2007 following a mindless and savage attack on her and her partner Robert Maltby on the 11th August 2007.  The reason for this attack merely that Sophie and Robert were dressed differently. Sophie’s mother Sylvia took the decision that a charity should be set up in her daughter’s name

The Aims of the Charity are as follows *

  • To create a lasting legacy to Sophie
  • To provide educational work groups that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people  from alternative subcultures
  • To campaign to have the UK Hate Crime  legislation extended to include people from alternative subcultures or lifestyle  or dress

 

* These aims are taken for the Sophie Lancaster foundation website

All of us at Black Rose Events  are proud to raise monies for  this admirable cause.

Stamp

Out

Prejudice,

Hatred and

Intolerance

Everywhere

To find out more about Black Rose Events and the Sophie Lancaster Foundation tune into Two Rivers Radio tomorrow.  Nick Wright of Black Rose Events will be joining Declan Minskip on The Lunchtime Rush between midday-1pm and will be talking to Steve Allan on Coastin’ between 6-7pm.
