There's no doubt that children telling their friends about the Shop of Possibilities and Play Local is the best way to get new people involved. Word of mouth is always the best type of promotion.
Emily, one of our regular visitors to the Shop of Possibilities thought that it would be a good idea if she put together a booklet explaining what happens at the Shop of Possibilities and what new people can expect when they arrive.
She had been telling me that when she first came, the space was very different from how she had imagined it. Her thoughts were based on what her friend had told her, and she gave me the description in great detail, to which I replied that it would be interesting to hear how she would describe the space to those who hadn't been before.
At the end of the session I was presented with a very detailed leaflet, made by Emily. She included lots of her own views and opinions, and also some practical information like the opening times and the estates that we focus on. It was too good to not share with you all!
There's no better way of describing what we do, than from the words of the children themselves!
