What does community mean to you?

Community is something that I find hard to describe. I believe that community is the small actions of people. Stopping and saying hello while on walks, gathering for events, helping look after family and creating a pleasant atmosphere. All these things create community. It’s important, an environment where everyone feels welcome. That’s why it’s so important to me.

I like to volunteer at Living Streets because…

At first I wasn’t sure about volunteering. Cathy brought me along one day and I really enjoyed myself. The planning and preparation of events is so much more rewarding when seeing the outcome yourself. Seeing that outcome caused me to fall in love with volunteering and why I still continue to.
