Rothwell: I would love to hear from you

22 June 2023

Hello again, I would like to take a few moments of your time to reintroduce myself and explain what I do.

My name is Miranda Foster, you may have seen me around Rothwell talking to people about Rothwell. I am always a listening ear to find out all the good things that are happening in the area.

My work and how we could work together

A conversation, an idea, a talent, or a skill – small sparks lead to big ideas. We all need relationships with the people around us, a shared vision for our place and space, a strong sense of community and the chance to spend some time together doing things we care about.

The feeling of belonging and being part of our neighbourhood make us feel happier and connected. Do you have an idea? Could you share a skill? Would you like to make friends?

If you answer yes to any of the above and would like help and support to make your ideas happen give me a call or email me and we could work together to make it happen.

The effects of working together

When a group is a success the group thrives, with members and volunteers making new friends, learning new skills, feeling valued and most importantly, being proud to be actively involved.

There’s a real community spirit that exists and members naturally pull together for each other and for the greater good of the group. Friendship, being social and being part of a group are excellent ways of maximising everyone’s mental health. Offering peer support can help individuals by feeling they are surrounded by like-minded individuals.

The future?

The future is in your hands. Rothwell is already full of lots of exciting things to do but if you feel that there is something you could add to this, I am here to help. I can work with you to guide you and offer support to make your ideas come to fruition.
