|A completed book with blanks pages ready to fill with ideas aplenty|
In the first year we were involved with the consultancy offering short bites sizes making sessions, engaging with locals, trying to find out what they would like to do.
Last year we were part of the Open Book project in a variety of libraries around the borough, our spin was a Flock of Words and Crumbs from the Word Table. Being in a library it is always permissible to play with words and we certainly did. We listened to stories from the locals of Lincolnshire the why and how they came to be there.

|The process of making the book has many folds|
|...and the ideas flowed|
My group of book folding initiates this week looked on with trepidation at the book structure I presented them, but once each of them had completed their book there were looks of pure pride.
On the other table Carole glided and swooped around the table stirring up the energy and enthusiastically talking about the project, the noise of chatter gradually rose and people started sharing their thoughts, their hopes and dreams. Some of these were captured on their pages ready to be included in the books. I think the hardest thing for people was to leave their books behind.
