Despite sound council engineering, one stall holder was taking no chances with the new market building.
John Caton-Greasley, of Music Corner, invited his local pastor to bless his stock before opening to the public.
From mandolins to flying-V electric guitars, the many instruments received a favourable blessing from the Rev Eddie Gorniak of Crescent Road Congregational Church: Dukinfield
John siad "As a Christian business we wanted to thank God for getting us back up and running so quickly"
"We just said a brief prayer, though customers going passed were asking 'What sort of cult is that?' - it's a Christian cult."
John and the rest at Music Corner raised £300 for the Phoenix Fund through their regular practises on the outdoor market. Now the market is back on its feet they are hoping to use music to raise money for another charity.
"We're up and running in time for Children in Need, which is something we have always supported. We want to stage a continuous piano play-athon, nine till five for a whole week leading upto Children in Need.
