Photographs by Janie, words by Ian.
Every month or so, we have “Play Street” in our street. Some of the grumpier residents don’t like it, but we do, even though it takes place right outside our house. We like the sound of children enjoying themselves and the community coming together.
Normally the event really isn’t for us. Not even as a couple who inadvertently ended up at Young People’s Night at the theatre yesterday – click here for that story – can we claim eligibility to join in Play Street…
…until this time. This event was also designated to be a mini harvest festival for the whole community, so all and sundry were invited along. Yes, Janie and I are most definitely sundry.
We thought the afternoon was a great success. We hope the community organisers arrange more such events in the future.
Aleksandra Turner kindly sent me a few more photographs, including some with Janie – which is a definite plus. Here is one of Aleksandra’s…
Don’t be bemused by the first photo in that Flickr album; it is not from the street fair, but one I took at the theatre the night before.
Many thanks, Aleksandra, for sending me those super pictures of the street event.
