30 July, 10am

Most of us would like to see the back of Covid19, and while there is no doubt of the negative impact the pandemic has had on us as individuals as well as our communities, it’s also clear to see that our neighbourhoods saw an increase in community spirit from last March. In this interactive session we’ll chat about the positives that may not have happened in our communities without the Covid crisis and discuss how we can all harness and hold onto those positive vibes to support our communities.
