Home is...


I spent the weekend in Cardiff with my old friend Esyllt bringing together the community for an event as part of the Made In Roath festival. The weather was so good that we decided to do all the activities outside in the alley behind the house, using the garage as an additional space.


Sylvia did a great presentation about the Pettigrew family and the trees and gardens of Roath...



My part was to get the community thinking about what "home" and "community" means to them, it was great to see everyone joining in and adding their responses to the prompts.


Late afternoon and into the evening there was jazz and a sharing of stories and poems from a range of performers... I shared a story I'd written especially for the event.

This is the first time I've facilitated any community work in a few years and I was so excited to be back involved in this kind of event. It's something I'm doing more of in the future, so watch this space...
