Everyone seems to be TED mad at the moment. If you don't know about TED google it and watch one of their videos every day. It is inspiring stuff. Even my Lottie's assembly was a little TED-ish - with a video screen playing behind the children and the theme...a game where they take roles in governing Australia (farmers, loggers, the tourist board etc.) and make changes to ensure a good future for Australian in years to come.
This morning I had a surprise delivery of flapjack and coffee which was much appreciated. The Shillingford Van delivered all the vegetables for Penny's Order and Collect Scheme and Kat from Love Local Food delivered Penny's other groceries for delivery. It's wonderful to see the vegetable orders continue to grow each week and Penny will be selling Shillingford at our Craft Fair on Saturday 5th May.
The lunchtime was a busy one. The new A-board is working it's magic at the entrance. More people have popped in to see what's going on at the hub this week. David dropped off more of his homemade jam. We had someone come and check out the hub for a 5th birthday party and Verity and the girls brought sunshine to the hub on a soggy day.
This afternoon flew by. It's a busy couple of weeks at the hub. World Tai Chi Day celebrations start tomorrow at 7:50 when Angus Clark will be interviewed on BBC Radio Devon before opening the hub at 9am for teas and coffees (and cakes that are in the oven now) and the Tai Chi starts at 9:45am on the green before moving to the hub and then to Princesshay for some seriously cool demonstrations. I am looking forward to the sword demonstrations most of all especially as it was an effort to double check that all agencies were happy for people to waggle swords in Princesshay on a Saturday lunchtime.
The timetable looks like this:
