prob my last post!!

Last week.

It is only a week away and we have made lots of times to meet and put final touches to the plan. I think that every thing is going really well. And the meeting we had with George went really well he is really happy with every thing that we have done and is really looking forward to the event now. As are we!!! The parade I think is going to go really well I think we need to focus on timing and we also need to arrange ways of clearing up and keeping the common as clean as possible all weekend.

I think that it is all looking good and the dress rehearsal on the Friday before will be a really good way of seeing what we have to do to get the timing right.

This is it now. I have really enjoyed working on this project and I think that it will be a success as I feel that everyone has put a lot of effort in. I have learnt a lot from doing this community project and I have enjoyed working with every one.

Lets hope it doesn’t rain and I am sure the event will be amazing!

love u all well done we have done good!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxx

I love the story and i love that we played with them to see what they were like to move I think this helped as they are not as easy as I thought they would be but they are looking amazing!! Well done to the creative team!!!! I have taken picture to take to our ham meeting on monday if there is any thing else important we need to talk about just let me know and we can chat with george and gary. All is looking good!!!

we have a rough plan for the weekend which is good but we need to sort a set one monday i think.

Ham Meeting in the pub!!!

the meeting today went realy well we had lots to catch up on as we hadent meet for a few weeks. i realy feel as if they are excited about the progect now and we can all see hoe it is coming together. We wanted to have a catch up with them so that we could tell them the progress that we have made over the last few weeks. they seam realy happy with the work that we are doing.

We are going to have a meeting on the 29th as our next big meeting to fill them in on our procress and any workshops that we have had. They would also like us to present them with a plan of how the day will run and where everyone will be. they understand that this might not be compleate as we still may not know everyones plans but in as much detail that we can.

So if we can all start to get as much information as possiable we can make the plan realy good for them.

its all going well but not long till it is hear. keep up the goods work guys!!!xx

the story was so so good well done Jenny and Ben was so funny and the children and adults will love it. i like the idea that everything revolves around the same thing and realy brings the events together! i am looking forward to dressing up as animals and having fun with the community!!! realy good meeting guys i feel we covered alot! we are on track keep up the good work.

Meeting with Mark!

we all had our little meeting and i feel that sitting down and talking to mark we got to have a little catch up and know where we are at the moment and what we are to focus on in the nest few weeks.

also talking to mark about this (the blog) helped me as i am not alot clearer on what is required from us.

All is good on our side of things and we will report back on the meeting with Ham!!

we have had a few realy good meetings and it all looks ltke it is coming together.

mask making was fun and looks like a good way of getting the kids involved and making them fit in the the colour theame. workshops are a thing that we need to focus on and try and get into the schools as soon as we can.

i think everyone is working well and it is all looking good so far but we still have a long way to go.

we had a meeting with ham house and theya re happy with how things are going they would like us to keep intouch bout numbers as this is there main worry. the meeting was realy good and they would like us to do a presentation to them in 3 weeks with a plan off the day and where we are at. this will be on everything fundrasing and general things so maybe some one from a few other groups could come with us.

they are realy excited about the event and realy want alot of our imput down to writing the song that will be sung on the day about ham so any one creating should have a think about it. they are looking at having bags made to give away and want our imput on this aswell.
Everything is going well we just need to wait for schools to get intouch and then just get into the scholls and start the fun.!!!

all seames to be good keep up the hard work!!! xx

well we have had a few meetings and it is all becoming together a bit more, we have all had very contrasting views on how we all think things should be and this could become a issue but i hope we can all sort this out.

we have decided on doing a parade as well as the ham house event that at first i thought was a bad idea as it is making more work for everyone and separates the event but if the timing is right and there is lots going on in ham itself.

i think when we get a chance to meet with Gary and George it wil help to see what it is that they want as well as seeing if they like our ideas.

doing the walk on friday i think helped making us see what will actualy be happening on the day and alowed us to see how it could be, and start throwing ideas around.

well it has been a while the last few weeks of uni were so busy. Ham house was fun but as the time went on the fewer people could make it and this was very difficult for the people that were there as the timing was all off and we were storytelling non stop this was not down to any one as i am sure people had good resons for not being there. Rachel took over from zoe and realy wasnt very well and came in and organised everything very well she was a star.!!!!

we were supprised as we learnt how diffrent the days were from the age of the children every performance was realy diffrent some times we had to adaped our storytelling to the audence and sometimes just ended up playing with the children.

i realy enjoyed the weekend the first two were possiable better as there was more storytellers and by the last weekend i think that we were all abit down and tired of doing the same thing all day as we didnt realy get a chance to have a break we all carried on well and i think it went well but we were all ready for it to be over.

i have enjoyed working with everyone but i think that some of us have been let down by the money being taken and realy put a downer on the last weekend for me it might not have been one of us but in general i didnt like the feeling of not being able to leave my money in my own bag while we went to do someing nice. this is the only real downer of the whole experience for me. other that this i think every one did well. x
