What a great start to the project! I salute the community spirit in Southend on Sea. It is one of the many reasons we love it so much, don’t we? Big thank you to all those who came down to the Launch event at Victoria Gateway on the 17th & 18th May and shared their creative ideas on our ” Ideas Blackboard”. Hope everyone enjoyed the fabulous day out with everyone and our tea, coffee and the amazing smoothies we all made together on our smoothie bike.
We have gathered a range of ideas and to see the most popular ones we turned them into a wordle. The more an idea was written on the “Ideas blackboard” by different people, the bigger it is in the wordle.
