Day 6 – KEEP LEARNING
I absolutely love our intergenerational work, and if things go to plan we’ll be doing a lot more of it in 2014. At the moment we have two new projects about to start (more details soon) in North West Leicestershire and the first is themed around WW1, so I’ve been reading poetry, looking at artwork and researching some of the animals that played their own part in the conflict.
How about this one … an Indian elephant helping out in Sheffield as a result of a horse shortage – many were sent to the Western Front.
In America, one of the most decorated animals is a dog named Sgt. Stubby, who served in 17 World War I battles and was awarded several medals.
Day 7 – CONNECT
A lovely, working lunch with a friend setting the world to rights and making plans.
