A goodbye poem

This is the day we say goodbye

But we want to say thank you guys

We have had the best time ever

We think you are all very clever

Hand puppets, clay models and wooden spoons

Animations, poems, songs and good tunes

Are all the things that we have done

We have had so much fun 

Thank you all from the tribe!

Update on latest sessions

On Saturday 7 July we had our second full day Have a Go! session in Maryport.  We started the day with a good game of Stand up if... and some call and response songs.  A group went with our top film maker Tom and made some great animations.  We had a brilliant group sing and then we went into smaller groups to sing, play and compose new songs.

Have a Go! in Maryport

On Saturday 23 June, we held our first full day Have a Go! session for foster parents and children in Maryport.  We were very pleased with the amount of people that came along to take part and despite the floods, high wind and traffic chaos; most of them were with us all day.  The project is aimed towards 7-11 yr olds but we welcomed young people out of that age range as well due to varying circumstances. 23 young people, 15 Foster carers, 2 social workers, a participation officer and 4 artists attended.

"This is more than just an activity they can get involved in — they are writing their own songs, making their own videos, learning how to express themselves. It’s given them a new way of life."
