Had a fantastic day today, looking back over our Doorstep Drop-in family space which happened back in Sept/Oct.  Remembering all the fantastic families, the transformation of the empty shop and the valuable lessons we learned.  Now working on an application for funding to develop this idea into something that families can enjoy for the future.

Thanks for all your help, ideas and creativity Blackburn!
