AFTER reading about the new food outlet, Spark:York, it took me back to when I was a teenager visiting London.

I was taken to Kensington High Street to see the new ‘trendy’ shops. We visited an old garage which had been let into small designer outlets where I treated myself to a pair of office shoes, then totally unknown.

Why can’t we rent out affordable units to our new talent of designers and artists, I am sure somewhere like the old BHS store would would make an ideal place to rent out small spaces. I really think people want unusual things and it would give local talented designers a space they could afford to have.

Come on York, let’s lead the way.
