originally formed by Maureen Smith and the late
Ron Davis in 2009, as the Fore Street Traders

in Liskeard and the surrounding area.The LTA
were instrumental in opening the Pannier Market
in 2014 with the help of Mary Portas and Pete
Valance from the Co-op. It has been a hub for
start up Businesses with a Community Spirit, a
very popular "Bus Stop Cafe" and varying stalls.
It supports regular themed activities in the town

CHRISTMAS FUN DAY - In the lead up to the big event, Christmas Day itself, The LTA like to put on some festive cheer in and around the
Town in order to help people get into the festive mood. In particular, the Annual Santa's Grotto is always a treat for the Children where they
have a chance to meet Father Christmas himself and receive a free gift. This year entailed a "Frozen" theme and even included Snow ...
well, fake snow.

We organise events and help support other town events throughout the year.  As an example you can see our previous events below.  To join please read the Constitution here and fill out the Standing Order here.  Please return them to us at the address provided.  If we come together as a town we can help build Liskeard into a thriving Community once again.
