Made in Liverpool: This land is our land

Sue and Myra run a community centre at the heart of Kenny Fields in Liverpool. Their pantry offers residents affordable food, but also a sense of togetherness, pride, and plenty of laughs.

But there is something missing: a feeling of control and security. With development spreading rapidly from Liverpool city centre, residents fear for the future of their community – and now they are starting to fight back.

This is the fifth episode of Made in Britain by The Guardian, a community-based video journalism project looking at poverty, inequality and the challenges our communities face in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The aim is to put the individuals who are typically under-represented in the media in front of and behind the camera.

Doors & bar: 5pm
