There's some interesting stuff in the pipeline, yet to be confirmed, but this will see Little Bird SOS taking further steps towards fulfilling our social aims and becoming a self sustaining organisation.
We've run some very successful Open Studios whilst based at Cross Corners in Belgrave and now look forward to holding Open Studios on a regular basis from Greenacres, as part of their own events and in tandem with many of the Great Central Railway's special events. We're selling items made by skilled volunteers which are made from reclaimed materials and the profits from this go towards the continued operation of Little Bird SOS whilst we concentrate on developing future projects.
We continue to run our 'Revive' group which arose from the success of the Awards for All Project (see Past Projects) and we're further developing Yarnjackers which (previously Craft Birds) which now runs on a Tuesday as well as a Wednesday.
