Our dockside is an eyesore and it has long been agreed it could and should be so much more, that along with the regeneration of Freeman Street, including a stadium for GTFC could trransform that whole area from dereliction.
Riby Square and the Flyover are the gateway to Grimsby and sandwiched between our Docks and Freeman Street which was once our great shopping district but sadly this is no longer the case.
A Stadium here would be the right location, it’s at the foot of the motorway and has rail links very close by.
Accompany this with some other facilities, maybe an open area that is adaptable to hold outdoor events, Christmas Markets, Summer fayres which would keep this area booming and interesting all year around.
We travel to York at Christmas but couldn’t we, with just a little thought and effort make something special here?
Footfall is key and the Stadium wherever it is located will provide a huge boost to anything within a mile of it, this is the key!
