Yesterday was Emily's last day at The Rock which also meant that it was her last day on the Big Local Partnership, first of all we would like to thank her for all of the hard work that she has put into the project and her enthusiasm to get things done!
Without such enthusiasm it can be argued that the Community Café would not be as successful as it is today, encouraging the young volunteers and being a welcoming face, with many residents attending taking the time to talk to Emily about how the café could be improved along with what they already like.
Emily has been on the Big Local Partnership since it's beginnings, adding energy, advice and often mentioning the Community Café on at least three occasions during meetings, I would like to say that this was showing passion! She has also worked hard, along with other members of The Rock team and architects, to draw up plans to redesign the inside of St. Peter's Church to make it into a community space for all, with various activities being able to take place within the space.
Finally, myself and on behalf of the Big Local Partnership and residents would like to say a big thank you and good luck in your new role, I am sure we will see you soon at the Community Café!
