Out and about with residents from Stirling's Old Town photographing what is great and what could be better all around the neighborhood. The Mercat Cross and Town Centre Community Council are working to influence investment in their part of city. As part of this they created a exhibition to stimulate debate and share their ideas and visions. We worked with them on a series of workshops and a touring exhibition which was shared with residents, business owners, planners and Councillors at venues across the city. We also had fun on the open days with dressing up and photos
What a fantastic Month, what a fantastic Year!

Also in October, Founding Director and CEO Janie Meikle Bland became a Fellow of the School for Social Entrepreneurs. Following an amazing year on the Bank of Scotland sponsored programme Janie, along with 17 other inspirational social entrepreneurs, graduated at a wonderful ceremony at the bank's headquarters at The Mound in Edinburgh. The evening was led by Tracey Muirhead, CEO of the School for Social Entrepreneurs in Scotland and attended by sponsors, mentors and those who have recently won their place on the 2015 programme. The Mound was buzzing - a fitting highlight and end to an amazing programme.

'' Wow Tracey….. am on the train home from the SSE graduation and buzzing! What a brilliant evening - inspiring, emotional and funny (in pretty even proportion, inspiring probably edges it!). Tracey, you must be enormously proud and how lovely to have your input recognised so beautifully and eloquently by all your new fellows.''
