By Emma Reeves, Community Development Worker for Tarner.
Well last week's East Brighton Coffee and Croissant morning was a bit different to normal! Ricky Perrin from Sussex Bears Basketball Club invited us to have ago at wheelchair basketball - something none of us had done before.
It certainly brought laughter and giggles and just a bit of competitive spirit to the session. This proved to be a useful experience when thinking about residents accessing our services for the first time, and made us consider what it feels like when you are out of your comfort zone.
A big thank you to Ricky for taking the time to bring the equipment to the session, which inspired us to think outside of the box to make our session more experiential.
East Brighton Coffee & Croissant hub networking sessions are for service providers in Whitehawk and nearby. They provide a chance to meet other people working in the area and find ways to collaborate and work together more effectively. They are generally held on the 3rd Thursday of the month at a community location in the Whitehawk area. Register on Eventbrite to reserve your place and to receive updates about future sessions (and so we know how many croissants to get in!).
