What a beautiful place!

This is our poster for the event we had yesterday.

And yes, we did get a chance to sit in the taxi.

Admittedly, the turn out was low but the quality of what was discussed and the experience of being there has really informed the project deeply. Sarah who works there was showing us around and we ended up interviewing her on her own experiences as well as the history behind adventure playgrounds. There’s a small soundbite from the interview on our oral histories page: https://bestdaysofourlivesproject.wordpress.com/oral-histories/
