Community Fair 2016 Report
Thank you to all the groups and visitors who attended the Spring Community Fair held on Wednesday 16th April. Well over 230 people visited the stalls throughout the day, with a majority of people being introduced to new local services in health and social care.
We also received some positive feedback from stall holders who found the networking element of the day really useful and felt that this information would come in useful in the work that they do, and where relevant can be passed onto their own service users. The event was an opportunity to make Swindon residents aware of the local support services and how these services can support them or their loved ones if needed – and that was achieved!
Many conversations also took place with potential volunteers, supporters of their services and potential future service users which is beneficial to Swindon residents and to the service providers.
A special thank you to TWIGS Community Gardens for providing the venue and being the perfect host!
Thank you too to the Little Redrooster Theatre group for entertaining us all on the day!
