First session of the Sophia course got off to a great start. The aim of the course is to develop ideas for community businesses/projects and to give clarity about the ways forward. Thirteen diverse people made it a great session in participating and pooling their wisdom.
Community spirit experiences (our starting point)- neighbours sharing childcare… Scouts trip to older people’s home… support after the death of wife… welcome and encouragement to join a social group… online community of support for an ill friend… pitching in to help a service go ahead when the van broke down…
And a rich conversation and then some art work to look at what we think things are like in the area – a bit of a snapshot.
Looking forward to taking this journey forward and the seed of an idea growing. 🙂
