Ascent is a conglomeration of several groups representing a variety of ecological interests in the area. Displays included community support, grow your own, green books, health promotion and a wonderful children's area.
I provided taster Healing sessions throughout the day.
Festivities were provided by a djembe drumming session and singing by a wonderful community singer who got us all up dancing and joining in. Great fun was had by all alongside the more serious matters of addressing local concerns.
It was most encouraging to see just how many initiatives are taking place and to learn about the numerous undertakings by local people willing to act on behalf of their communities not only to preserve but also to promote the well being of residents, wild life, countryside and environment of the locality.
This was a very positive celebration of community in action at the grass-roots level and I am proud to have been part of it.
