High points from last week in N. Ireland
Last week ended on a high point, quite literally, with a meeting in the Rowan Tree Centre in Pomeroy – the highest village in Northern Ireland. I was there for it’s first drop of the white stuff for 2013 and luckily I was still able to get back home safe and sound. It summarised how the rest of the week had been – with useful meetings with CENI, Volunteer Now, Mid Ulster Seniors Network and Libraries NI, Ignite IT and Make IT Green to discuss possible opportunities for working collaboratively. Chris also came over on Wednesday and we had a very positive meeting with Livenet, sharing their experiences of their ICT programmes for people with learning difficulties and their carers and how the BT Connected Communities could help support them. We also took advantage of Chris being here and arranged a meeting with BT to discuss progress of the project to date and opportunities for the way forward eg the success of the celebration event in December and Portrait of a city project. More updates to follow.
