And the buggy park begins take on a bit of interest….
Mark is building the buggy park, one of the settling in jobs at the new Significant Community Space at 131 Wood Street. We’ve entrusted the project to him and are enjoying his teaser pictures of progress over the last few days, so thought we’d share. We are determined for all the big stuff, like the buggy park, to be sorted in the next month, in time for our launch activities.
Everything is taking shape nicely, even if Debs, Mark and I look a little bewildered (we are – your contributions are amazing and humbling!- and who knew one space could have so many leaks!), and we are pleased as punch some nationally and even internationally known craft ‘celebs’ (though they are all a bit self conscious and brilliantly modest about it) have confirmed they’ll be joining us.
Our amazing committee of volunteers have outlined an impressive and fun filled plan for our contribution to the Wood Street Festival, and a number of area groups are diligently, yet happily crafting away at the Wood Street area project, “The Softer Side of Regeneration” – a friendly response to how pavement and paint have characterised the first wave of regeneration investment in the neighbourhood.
Volunteers yesterday assembled a number of takeaway packs for this project – so if you are interested to learn more or contribute, pop in to 131 and pick up a pack. They are free – you just need to make the item – on your own or during one of our twice weekly neighbourly knit and stitch groups (Thursday and Saturdays 1-3pm, £3 suggested donation, tea, coffee and snacks provided) and bring it back to us by 8 June.
