Here at SPiCE we truly believe that our community has the answer. The answer for what we want to see more of. The answer for how we want Sandringham village to look and feel. The answer to good neighbours, community connections, and celebrating diversity. The answer to what will make Sandringham an even more amazing place to live work and play.
We also believe the strengths we need to build all this can be found within our community. And we have made it our mission to advocate and promote this! Including taking over the local community notice board (which was empty due to Covid-19 and its impacts) to promote it with this great quote from Margaret Wheatley and the Berkana Institute.
Reflections from the pause
We noticed the strengthening of neighbourhood connections, and connections to our local place during the lockdown. Families cycling down Sandringham Roads normally busy with traffic. Being able to hear birds singing. Neighbours supporting each other, and people stepping up to be street coordinators. Wouldn't it be great if we could continue some of these things in our new normal? What needs to change so we can?
Let us know what you would like to see. Let us know if you have a community project and we can support you to achieve it. We are here to support you - the community. Because you have the answers.
