Hi Heledd

Welcome to the group! Two good options to start making connections are the All in this Together: co-producing resilient communities event in Cardiff on September 28th at the Park Inn, and the Wales Network meeting on 4th October in Swansea. Or you could head up to Rhyl for Patchwork Circles event - the North Wales Network group. So much choice! Hope to see you at one or all of the meetings.

Hello. I have just joined the network and look forward to being part of the group. I am co-ordinating a new organisation to organisation timebank in Carmarthenshire. The project is being led by Menter Gorllewin Sir Gâr with suport from Spice. I've been in post for a month and we are in the very early stages of development, but the potential is very exciting. I would be interested in making links with other members.
