The May Market: Rain and Inspiration on Ducie Street
After yesterday’s preparations, time for the Street Market itself. And yes, it was a ‘making your own fun’ kind of a day. “May Bank Holiday weekend? Oh, you’ll want that to be cold and rainy then?” Ah well, we enjoyed it anyway, here on the corner of Granby Street and Ducie Street in Liverpool 8.
But in the end it’s too wet to do the work.
These have been running story telling and writing sessions for the Community Land Trust over the past six weeks, called ‘What’s your Granby Story?’ – part of beginning to put together ideas for the ‘Four Corners Project’ on the corners of Granby Street and Cairns Street.
After which market organiser Joe Farrag gets everyone to turn round and wave for the camera and to all of you reading this!
It was cold, the rain was pouring down and the corner of Granby Street and Ducie Street wasn’t the most obvious place to stand on such a day. But I don’t think any one of us would have wanted to be anywhere else on Earth for a few minutes there. We were all in Granby time. Stood there with everyone who has gone and all the new people who will soon arrive. Standing on the corner of Granby’s future.
