Everyone who already knows me (Kate) will also know that I have a bit of a reputation for being something of a pedant
(!), so I thought I’d start this post with a definition of ‘media’:
“Communication channels through which news, entertainment, education, data, or promotional messages are disseminated.”
Well – that certainly explains the buzz at our latest people and places social event, when there was plenty of communication among previous and future volunteers, local partners, and us!
Kate’s home found room for over 30 volunteers, as well as the full complement of ‘people and places’ … Mandip and Anita joined us from India, and Adama was with us from The Gambia (although somewhat delayed) …
We love hosting our ‘at home’ social events, whether in Kent or Dorset … and still, after all these years, tend to refer to them as ‘road shows’, because they provide us with opportunities to listen, learn and share … opinions, questions, news and great company! (take a look at the post from Dianne about news from the projects)
It’s inevitable that lots of you aren’t able to be with us when we hold these events … but PLEASE don’t let that stop you from getting in touch with us any time, whether by email, phone, comments on the blog, facebook, twitter … we will ALWAYS be pleased to hear from you …
Meanwhile, thanks to everyone who was able to come and share time with us this year … and we look forward to meeting yet more of our wonderful volunteers in the future!
P.S. thanks to all the kind souls who brought us pressies – we were really touched.
