In our ongoing journey of making our laneway a more welcoming, cleaner and safer space the Credo Community took the whole Melbourne Cup Day Carpark Brunch tradition to a new level in our own carpark in Baptist Place. Cup day is an amazing contrast in city of Melbourne when the city goes from a pre race mass of expectant, festive, colourful, frocked up beauty …to seeing the violence and general ugliness of post race revelry….talk about Makabe Diva “Fever “!!! On “All Saints Day” we wanted to celebrate those Saints of our city that wouldn’t get to wine and dine in corporate marquee’s. A fab day was had by all. “This should become a tradition.” said one punter at the end of the day! Some great pics below…..

Nice pink boa ginge!
The party starts…
Marx and Nige at the Laneway Bar! The Maison flowed smooth…..more pop in the cork than the drink but she still flowed smooth!

Luke and Jeff roll the snags whilst the nags roll on.
Credo cricket in the laneway breaks out……
…and goes off….wonder if The Commonwealth Games will be able to live up to this this welcoming, inclusive, freindly city sporting vibe?!
The cricket game was a different kind of hit! ” If we weren’t here laughing we’d be agro at each other.”
Our response to the back doors and laneways of our city can be a mirror to the dark places of our own lives!
