Please note – Dock Cafe is closed for renovations and refurbishment (and – hey – maybe a wee holiday too?!) from Thursday 9th – Mon 13th July
But oh my word… what a July we’ve had so far. We’ve figured out that Dock Cafe served 5,510 customers over four incredible days of Tall Ships, tremendous crowds and terrific fun:
Meanwhile, just a few doors along, the wonderful traders at Dock Market were similarly packed to the rafters with happy customers browsing their amazing selection of home-made hand-crafted goodness:
And on the Wee Tram – if we’d had twenty trams, we still couldn’t have squeezed everyone on board who wanted a ride! What a weekend!
And what a perfect way to bring it to a close at our monthly Sunday Nights at The Dock service – chatting to ex-Lord Mayor Nichola Mallon about the signs of hope, vision and compassion she can see bubbling to the surface in Belfast, and giving thanks that we are living through these undreamt-of days in our city.
All of which leaves me at something of a loss for words to convey how grateful, humbled, impressed and in love I am with our amazing Dock volunteers, our incredible staff members, our lovely customers and the brilliant buzzing beautiful community we’re part of…
As Van the Man once sang, “Well my mama told me, there’ll be days like this”!
