A wet day in Granby 4 Streets
This was to be the one. Our High Summer Street Market. The one that would warm our memories when the winter comes. The one where we’d sit around as the summer afternoon turned to evening and reflect on what a year it’s been. In the end we laughed and talked and shopped between the raindrops. And do you know what? It was fine.
Then Beatlife officially drummed the market open, as they have done so often this past six years.
And Pat on the left there is already texting Britt back in Anfield to bring more pies and bread.
As ever the day was filled with music. I was just too busy talking to take photographs of everyone!
In fact Simon plus Ged Clarke from the BBC are here all day continuing to film the ‘Inside Out’ documentary we began on Wednesday. (It’s going to be broadcast late in September apparently.)
And then the rain begins falling.
“While the shower’s on let’s do that filming inside one of the CLT houses,” Ged suggests.
Several times during the day I do a tour of the 4 Streets for our various visitors, bringing them in here for a quick look as we pass. I am so pleased to able to do so.
When we’ve finished in the house the rain is heavier than before. And the rest of the Street Market day will take place between the raindrops and under as much cover as we can manage.
And wet though we get, no one goes hungry.
Though when I got home I had to change out of all of my wet clothes. But am of course writing this up in the late afternoon sunlight! Ah well.
All the Granby 4 Streets Markets are special, every one a carefully crafted occasion. So well done yet again Theresa and Joe for organising this one and to Hazel for much of the music. There’ll be another Street Market the first Saturday of September and then one for Christmas.
