Summer Splash

New Leaf pond 22.08.13

Today New Leaf celebrated a successful summer of mentoring young people with an end-of-season party. Trustees, backers, alumni, local residents, long-time friends, and volunteers mingled over coca-cola, coffee and excellent BBQ-fare. It was an incredibly successful day – the very nature of New Leaf means that friends pop-in when they are about, and do some volunteering at different times – and some volunteering is done in peoples’ studies (web-design, putting together proposals for funding) – so it was fantastic for all these people to meet each other – in some cases for the first time.
