Welcome to our final newsletter of 2020.
It's been a tough old year (to put it mildly), and we would like to thank you all for sticking with us on our online journey. It certainly wasn't a path we would have chosen, or even imagined possible, but we've learned so much over the past few months and are very glad to have had your company.

Wishing you a peaceful and playful festive time.

Mel & Jess
10 things we have learned in 2020
1.   When almost nothing is as it was, birds still sing.

2.   Giving yourself a hug is better than it sounds.

3.   If a change isn’t possible, a rest is as good. 

4.   When a daily routine stops working, a tiny tweak can make a big difference. 

5.   The less achieved, the more breaks and treats required.

6.   Making connections is what people do, however big the obstacles.

7.   Everyone has their own special Zoom face.

8.   Some improv games work better online than in person.

9.   Play is a gift that keeps on giving. 

10. There’s a power in 'good enough'

To kickstart the project we are currently looking for proposals which respond to the word 'Spark'.
