We’re steaming along at full speed ahead at CTC. Our number of participants is growing on a daily basis and is now approximately 120! New activities and groups are being added daily. We now have some very successful art classes running alongside our other activities and several different I.T. drop-ins focussing on different I.T. topics.
Today was the fourth meeting of our Steering Group and we had an interesting meeting. Many topics were discussed and we focussed on lessons learnt so far and the future of CTC. It has been interesting for the Steering Group to see how the project has developed and sometimes in slightly different ways than anticipated. We origianlly assumed that most of the time spent on CTC would be on individual exchanges e.g. an hours gardening in return for an hours D.I.Y., however, we have found that the majority of people so far have really enjoyed and benefitted from the social aspects of group activities and drop-ins. We will contiue to build on both our group and individual participation and the Steering Group are busy planning a fun ‘celebration event’ in the summer to mark the achievements of CTC so far.
