Also shows that a Barnwood opportunity award can be used in really imaginative ways, Donald Duck costume has to be my all time favourite!

Louise,
It was lovely to meet you yesterday and hope to see you again with further meetings.
Hoping to gain in more confidence to speak out more clearer. I am really trying to do so.

Thanks for joining the site Louisa. Like you, I think its so important we support people to share good news stories of how people come together to make their community a great place. So many of these stories fly under the radar, but with your help we can elevate those stories and support communities celebrate them. Thanks for getting involved. Looking forward to meeting you at some point. Rich

It sounds like you had a fabulous day with Katie and the Barnwood team seeing old friends and meeting new ones. You always write beautiful reports which share the atmosphere of every event you visit. Hope to see you very soon.

I'm so so happy you had such a wonderful day and I'm looking forward to hopefully taking part in much more, I'm currently learning how to swim which helps my disability but I'm also on the lookout for some locally based groups in and around the Matson GL4 4BA area so i can use my mobility scooter to get to places so reading about your fab day has given me more hope and please keep in touch thank you for listening xxx

Thanks for sharing this Sally. Having a 'community power' event gives such a strong message to others about whats possible when people come together. I'm glad you had fun, despite the rain!
