Celebrating 30 years...Heart n Soul

We'd like to share a good news story. One that has grown out of the community instead of something plonked on us by developers or the Council.

This eye-scream delight has been put up by Heart n Soul, the learning disabled creative arts project that has been operating out of The Albany for the past 30 years.

They're celebrating all summer and painting the bank is just one of the ways they've been having fun and sharing the joy. They got full permission from the owner, who is thankfully not some corporate outfit planning to put in a McDonalds, as many of us suspected, but is local and at some point will move his business here from another location on the high street (clue: Berkeley Square). Mark Williams, the CEO of Heart n Soul thinks it's likely that their decorations will stay up for a while after their festival is finished. We love it.

Check out Heart n Soul and how they've developed their programme and project over the years.
