photos from the event 23 July

Hi all – we are still unpacking the boxes from the event on Wednesday so are a bit behind with posting up info about it, and what next. But in the meantime you can see some of it from the several tweets from others retweeted on our twitter account: Do have a look.  We will post more info about the event on Facebook and what next soon, but the photos in this FB post are an instalment.  If you have any photos we’d love to have them to add to ours as we didn’t have time to take a collection. Please email them to or if on the web you can put the weblink in a comment here. Many thanks.

Successful model launch & community celebration

Thanks to everyone who came to the model launch + celebration of wonderful community collaboration. Locals queued before 3pm for the doors to open, and then we were kept very busy throughout and the meeting at 7pm was packed. Just recovering now from all the exertions as a 100% volunteer effort to get it ready and manage the day itself. Seemed a great buzz and we managed to attract people in from the street through our TODAY posters at the entrance and pictures along the passage into the Bussey building.
