We had a really great Open Day . Current and previous group members were there, two came for the first time in seven years! We dug out of our archive the work they had made all that time ago and reminisced about how the group was in those early days. We also had visits from people representing other local community groups as well as the Penzance Mayor Dick Cliffe, city councillor Penny Young, Edward Bolitho, Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall and Derek Thomas MP. It was very encouraging for us all and we are grateful to those who came along. We very much value all our supporters both near and far for their continued support.
Now that lockdown is at last gradually lifting, we're looking back on the past year with a sense of achievement and a committment to a future together. Even when we couldn't meet, Roamers stayed in touch by way of our post card project (details here) -- we've posted most the them here. We shared paintings and drawings and photographs from Toby, Suzi, Jon and Not Just Any Girl. Keep an eye out for a new video soon with more details.

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.
