"I look forward to seeing the exhibition"

About: Highbury Hospital

(as a service user),

I came to the mosaic making sessions on Wednesday mornings at the Highbury Community Garden run by Claire Blakey from the Live Team. By concentrating on the mosaics it took my mind off my problems. I enjoyed watching the mosaic work grow every week and I felt good about what I had contributed. I felt proud and enjoyed being part  of a team. Everyone was nice and friendly and worked together I felt satisfaction seeing the mosaics completed and felt really proud that our work is going to be on show at the Bulwell Arts Festival. I look forward to seeing the exhibition and showing my family. I want to say a big thank you to Claire for making this project happen and making me feel valued and worthwhile. I think this has helped a lot of people and I think we should have more projects like this at Highbury Hospital.

Dear hotelef87,

Many thanks for the kind words, I will pass on your lovely comments to Claire. It is great you were involved and found it beneficial. I really hope you had opportunity to see the exhibition at the Bulwell Arts Festival and we have received lots of positive comments about the quality of the work and I know that the Arts Festival, Claire and the Live team are very keen to continue to collaborate on art projects and we hope to secure future projects for the benefit of all.

Best wishes
