Third on the left there, Rachel of the Urban Cupcakery.
As well as us Beautiful Ideas people and Board members from Liverpool, there are some guests from Salford, also part of the same LaunchPad programme, and some friends from Wirral also interested in working with The Beautiful Ideas.
And it’s a quietly lovely evening of talking gently through what we’re all starting to do and exploring more possibilities of this enterprise development idea working elsewhere.
Next day, Sunday, it’s good and sunny as I set off on my walk.
Where a very special guest is coming to talk with us about our ideas.
Yes it’s John McDonnell, Shadow Chancellor and here in Liverpool for the Labour Party Conference.
Liam introduces his Dad, a teacher, who’s also one of the makers here.
Which is where he gets to hear about Coming Home and the other Beautiful Ideas enterprises here.
(Jay’s the one leaning enigmatically against the pillar.)
A truly beautiful idea, and one I’m so proud to have been involved in so often this year.
Big thanks to everyone involved with The Beautiful Ideas Co, it’s been such a pleasure to work with you all this year. So thanks for your love and friendship and looking forward to continuing mutual support as Jayne Lawless and I move into full operations now as Coming Home Liverpool.
