In order to continue what we found to work so well during our self care project in Cullompton, we needed a new place to be. So we now have a new hub in the centre of Exeter, on Cathedral Close, where we can meet up, connect people, teach, get busy, hold classes, be creative and have a great time. This time it is not centred around a cafe but it will have the same excellent coffee. We are a social enterprise community interest company.
I was really nervous about World Peace Day celebrations. I collaborated with Exeter Mind & Body next door for the first time and the success of Friday's celebrations relied upon all the local performers turning up and having the guts to perform in Princesshay and all to raise awareness of World Peace Day. And you know what...most of them did and for that I will be forever grateful and remember them all fondly. There were some real highlights. For me they were watching Cathy & Sean dance the Argentine tango along with others in their group. I know Cathy & Sean but I rarely see them dance. I was transfixed. I loved Dudley and his hurdy gurdy. The sound carried so well and I had the best company with me. And Rob from Magic Carpet who stepped up to the stage after a bit of a gap but was fabulous. I loved his REM cover.
It was a great day meeting lots of new people and sharing good times in the name of peace.
