Call for traders to join green project for Letchworth

A BUSINESSWOMAN is going green and calling for traders, community groups and charities to join her when a retail project launches in July.

Jenny Jones, who owns furniture and giftware shop Emporium in Letchworth GC’s Station Road, will head a new enterprise called The Green House after planning permission for interim improvements for The Wynd was agreed in April.

Replacing The Gallery, the vacant space will be developed to host all-weather weekly auctions, collectable fairs, green produce and flea markets, while long-term plans for the area are under consultation.

The new community venture, part of a �300,000 project by Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, will sell and auction vintage, reused and recycled goods when it opens to the public for the first time on Saturday, July 2.

“I hope that The Green House will add to the new life and vigour Letchworth town centre has recently seen, by developing a community-based, retail project which is as environmentally-friendly as it can be,” said Jenny, who approached the Heritage Foundation with her vision.
