Today was a very productive meeting. It was great to welcome a new member along who was made to feel very welcome. Due to the group talking about what helps one another whn feeling down, someone brought in a crochet, a poem and a mobile display to express the way she feels. The group was very touched as a lot of though went into this. This is something we are actively encouraging in the group for people to share what helps them survive through difficult times.
We had Geoffrey from Strengths base as our guest this week. He wanted to introduce himself to the group before coming back in April to help work on what the different strengths are in the group.
We discussed with Keith (Edinburgh Napier University) how the group could work on their life experiences into anonymous stories that could be used by drama students to work on. There is a positive feeling amongst the group that things are taking off in so many ways.
