A good, warm Street Market in Granby today. Full of friends and conversations. So I didn’t take as many photographs as I usually would, too busy talking! Anyway, here they are – minus donkey rides, as they’d already finished for the day before I ambled round with my camera.
Assemble were promoting some week long craft workshops they’ll be running in August for local people to get involved in developing their skills at making household things themselves. I’ll be telling you more about this.
“I come here for the community and the friendship’ says Diane ‘ and for the joy of being involved in something that’s been so good for us all in Liverpool 8 for so long.”
In fact by the time I get round with my camera they’ve sold their entire stock of pies and sourdough bread and are packing up. So this photograph of Sally Ann and Grace in full flow was taken by Pat from Homebaked and I’ve whizzed it off Twitter! Hope you don’t mind?
Builders have been working today on the Community Land Trust houses, to get them finished. Just locking up as we walk along Cairns Street and round to an appointment in Beaconsfield Street.
While we’d been talking a relatively new resident of the 4 Streets had asked if I’d come and do some photographs of her garden.
Elizabeth is very knowledgeable about plants and keeping a garden in colour throughout the seasons. She’s now on the lookout for a local allotment too.
A more than successful tryout for a new social enterprise. Follow them on Twitter @fritto_uk.
So well done Theresa and Joe who organised it all. To everyone who helped. All the stall holders new and familiar. And the hundreds of people who came to visit. You’ll all be welcome again in a month’s time, on Saturday 1st August. See you then.
