The 15 people who came along to the two Activate sessions last week told us that they really enjoyed the positivity, learning about different ideas, and meeting and connecting with likeminded and interesting people. Four of the fabulous ideas being bought to life are starting in and around Dudley town centre. There are all sorts of opportunities to bring your skills, knowledge and talents to them and to join the teams which may seek a little support from the Active Citizens fund to sustain the projects.
Our first Bring & Share Supper was a great success, bringing together 11 people and 4 project ideas – from community growing and monthly meals to support for Roma families and a Cat Cafe!
To launch A Place To we created 15 opportunities over 15 days for people in Dudley to explore inspiring projects, get connected and take their ideas forward. This update describes what we did between 21 July and 4 August, and what people told us about their passions.
