Listen to this blog post on BBC Radio Merseyside here.
Home, the place where you can grow up happily, knowing it’s always going to be your home. Welcome home this little one from us at Coming Home Liverpool.No apologies at all for not having written much on here lately, Jayne Lawless and I have been busy. As the two partners in Coming Home Liverpool we’ve been busy creating our first home for a family in North Liverpool. And now it’s done and they’re all moved in. On a fair rent and a permanent tenancy.Yesterday there was a celebration at the house. A celebration you can listen to from the links at the top and the foot of this post. Where the owner of the house and her family met the new family who have just moved in, and both were interviewed by Claire Hamilton from the BBC.As you’ll hear, neither Jayne nor I spoke in the interviews, we didn’t need to. When you listen to the radio link you’ll hear the story of the house eloquently told by the people to whom it matters most.
We’ll have more to tell you too, about this home and the others we’ll now go on to help create. Particularly through the photographs our friend and photographer Jane MacNeil is taking to document this first year of Coming Home.But for now finishing with this beautiful photo the little one’s mum took after we’d all gone yesterday:
All other photos by Jane MacNeil.
You can listen to the story of what we’ve all done here from the Tony Snell programme on BBC Radio Merseyside.
