Cecilia is a pupil at a school in Salisbury and her project during the half term break was to spend time with us at Blue Sky’s marketing team, here in Romsey.
Cecilia and the bear
So, before Cecilia found out how we encourage people to become foster carers, how we share news of our successes, our website, social media and all the in-house work we do, we thought it would be fun for her to take the little bear on a tour around Romsey, exploring this pretty market town finding places of interest and simply enjoying the sights.
In the War Memorial park, the bear posed on the hauntingly beautiful ‘War Horse’ statue. The statue, unveiled by the Princess Royal in 2015, honours the thousands of horses and mules who were casualties of the First World war. The bandstand was next, followed by a cry of “anyone for tennis” as he got stuck in the tennis court nets!
Back in the town centre, the little bear posed with the imposing statue of Lord Palmerston (a former prime minister who once called Romsey ‘home’) and toured the local shops, pausing where he found interesting people or things. With that in mind, we’d like to say to the ladies in Winkworth Estate Agents, “thank you for your warm welcome”. To the lady in ‘Consortium’, “thank you for letting us take photos inside the shop” and to the owner of ‘The Cake Shop, “you have beautiful cakes and it’s a good job you were closed or we’d have eaten them all!!”
The little bear enjoyed his trip out with Cecilia and with the spring days ahead, we hope Cecilia will come back to spend more time with us. In the meantime, please enjoy the photos and don’t forget, we’re always pleased to hear from people who would like to join us to change the lives of children and young people.
