Glorious sunshine for a street market day. Ronnie walks us round.
Today was perfect for a street market. And from early morning Cairns Street in Granby, Liverpool 8 got itself ready for a perfect day. Gazebos set up, stalls filled, music turned on. and soon the people started to arrive, knowing it’s the last Saturday of the month, the day of the Granby 4 Streets Market.
I mentioned last month that James and Tom donate all the money they make from the 4 Streets Market to charity. And they told me today who the two charities are.
One is ‘Advocacy Works’, providing community mental health and wellbeing advocacy for the people of Liverpool. And the other is Elizabeth Anderson House, a project in Liverpool, providing housing and support to teenage parents and pregnant young women. Both projects are run as part of SHAP, a Merseyside organisation that supports social justice, and combats poverty and homelessness. Well done boys, it’s a privilege to have you at the Market.
Also lots of other stalls selling books, DVDs, clothes, plates, bric-a-brac, crafts and other things we’ll have a closer look at next time.
So if you were there you’ll know it was as lovely as it looks. And if you weren’t? Well there’s always next month, the last Saturday in June to look forward to.
By the people – Of the people – For the people. The Granby 4 Streets Market.
Next market: Saturday, 30th June, from 10:30am to around 3:00pm, the Granby 4 Streets market, Cairns Street, Liverpool 8.
