Success for 100 Days Together in Gloucester
Main article content
It has been a summer of positivity for Gloucester as organisations took part in 100 Days Together.
The project, which involved groups across the city, aimed to highlight different aspects of the good deeds taking place in the centre of Gloucester.
It aimed to show how people were working together as the country re-emerged from lockdown.
Kicking off on 21 June, the 100 days come to an end today (Tuesday 28 September) after a wide variety of positive action.
Those taking part in the project included: Gloucestershire Constabulary; Solace; The Cavern; Gloucester City Homes; Gloucester City Safe; Gloucester City Council; the Office for the Police and Crime Commissioner; The Music Works; Brendan’s Bridge Charity; Eastgate Shopping Centre; and various pubs and clubs, as well as the Night Time Economy, Gloucester Night Safe Forum and the LVA.
Organisers have vowed that, while the project has come to an end, the work to bring affirmation to the community will continue.
Among the highlights of the last 100 days were the walking rugby sessions run by Gloucester Rugby Foundation, events run by The Cavern - a cafe and live music venue supporting vulnerable people, and on-going work in Barton and Tredworth, with support from Brendan's Bridge Charity and Morrisons. The shop in Eastgate Shopping Centre also saw a number of organisations using it.
Inspector Ash Shingler, of Gloucester Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “People from groups around the city have been working hard to show the reasons why Gloucester is a great place to live and work.
“It has been fantastic to see so many organisations want to take part and celebrate the good things that are happening each and every day.
“My hope is that this will prove to be the start of something that continues to bring communities together as we make the city a safer and happier place for everybody.”
