Kim was Big Kirk Hallam’s first plan co-ordinator before Jsan and helped build the first plan. Kim was just looking on the website at all the things that have happened this last year and was full of praise for all that has been happening. She just sent this email. She is someone who knows of the dreams and ideas and of all the hard work to make them come true.
It’s been a while since I have been in touch but I just wanted to contact you and say ‘WOW’ …
I have been following the progress of the Big Kirk Hallam plan and it is exciting to see so many of the ideas coming to life. What began two years ago as just ‘wishful discussions’ with local residents about what they would like to see happening in Kirk Hallam is now becoming a reality! It is brilliant to see that the residents and people who work in the area remain passionate and committed about making a difference. So often groups can set up with good intentions and ‘talk the talk’ but then run out of steam but not Big Kirk Hallam, you are making things happen!
Of course, it needs a steadying guiding hand and it is good to see that Jsan is moving the plan forward, I am so glad that I was able to hand over the care of the plan to her.
Please can you pass on my regards to the partnership group and let them know that I check in from time to time (social media) as I think once involved in something like Big Kirk Hallam, it stays with you! Although I am no longer personally involved I do wish the area well and it is great to see the differences that the funding is making.
