So true, I am just thinking about all the times that 'black mirror' has sat upon the table during a conversation - almost looking like a black hole... I wonder how much of a conversation gets sucked into it?!

Sometimes it is really useful to look at what something isn't to get a better understanding of what it actually is!

Great to read this at last Molly, still get the warm glow from your words, even though a couple of months have passed...

I think I'll stick to community building rather than acting - and strongly hope Rich does the same! Nevertheless it is wonderful when people can come together and share something of themselves....I was blown away by the talents uncovered....and yes what a great time for neighbours coming together...

I love the story of the collective granny square blanket. What a lot of thought and care and a little bit of every member's talent sewn together!

Great celebration of local groups; and yes like the challenge to get out of our comfort zones!

Brilliant Kat. I love the focus on welcoming those who sometimes get left out.
Thanks for sharing these great stories Jane. Lovely to see the photos of people doing the things they love together.
Great to hear these connections developing

Love the question 'What happens to the balls that continue to be spilled outside of the pool?'. Indeed can't look at a ball pool now in the same way!

Love the idea of mocktails designed by young people bringing folk together to look, think and act in their community...

We are the same people, whether we are at home or at work, or indeed anywhere. I think that this 'exercise' makes us reflect on this more than perhaps we usually do - all to the good. Thanks for capturing our collective experiences so well Philip, and Chrissie.

Such an authentic reflection on what community building means for us in our own streets.

I love this story Philip. I wasn't at Barnwood Trust when this project was underway; instead, I went through the new application process which included talking about your community and the hidden treasure. Having only moved in a few weeks before, I found it a really useful nudge to go knocking on doors and start learning my neighbours' names.
