We are surviving! We've been unable to meet of course since Christmas but we still keep in touch every Thursday when Laura phones or texts everyone. We also have some projects on the go. Janet has invited us to submit a piece of work for a mail art project in Germany called "Send Me Your Light". She also asked if any Roamers would like to do some growing and she delivered seeds, plant pots and compost to the people who said they would. Janet also sent a card from us to everyone last week and this has been much appreciated.
We are very much looking forward to being all together again and will return to our base at Breadline as soon as possible, in limited numbers at first, as made possible by our wonderful funders the National Lottery Community Fund.
Roaming and Returning
We're gradually returning to old patterns of meeting, chatting, making things in the wake of Covid. We're glad to be back at Breadline. Even when we couldn't meet, Roamers stayed in touch by telephone, postal projects (details here) and this website. But we're most ourselves and most at ease -- most Roaming -- when we're really together.

Laura Wild is Roaming's Lead Facilitator and one of its directors. "Click" about us to find out more about who we are and what we do, or read about...
Roaming's official goal is "to carry on creative activities that benefit the community and in particular (without limitation) people who find themselves in some way disadvantaged, excluded or vulnerable." Our values are really our common ground: confidentiality, integrity, fairness, respect for the values and culture of others, the withholding of judgement, inclusivity, flexibility, and equity in relationships.
