Meet the CLT #gettingtheterracedone – part three! Today we focus on our member Andrew, from Wordscape publishers and Ethos magazine. Here’s Andrew in his own words:
“Like a lot of people, my journey at Homebaked CLT started with me coming into Homebaked bakery to buy some pies; soon afterwards I was back in for an AGM and joined the CLT as a member! I made a short documentary about Homebaked with a mate of mine, worked on the website and then joined the board of the CLT: we began working on the apartment above the bakery and the ‘pocket park’ next to the Terrace – and supported the work with the trainees who worked on that. We also supported Homebaked as they delivered an event for community businesses for ‘Power to Change’ and co-created a newspaper called ‘People Power’!
Since I first walked into the bakery to buy some pies I’ve loved the spirit of Homebaked CLT and everything it stands for. I love the idea of a group of residents building something special on the high-street there and asking, ‘What does it mean to live well?’ Good food on the table, secure homes, community, neighbours and friends, and hope.
For me, Homebaked makes good things – quality things – whether that’s pies and bread from the bakery, homes from the CLT, ideas or friendships, and has a positive impact in the world. It is a special place and a big idea!”
