Hope Street - Issue #9
By Barry, Kirsten, Perry • Issue #9 • View online
Welcome back to #HopeStreet, where a blast of summer sun has resulted in a surprising number of us* (*the British public) to abandon faith in the Government’s easing of restrictions; throwing parties, raves, and crowding the beaches.
Despite our well-demonstrated respect for nurses and the low-paid professions being a major positive consequence of the pandemic, we do hope this calculated risk by the Government (and the general public) doesn’t undo the progress we have made to stem the spread of the virus and avoid what feels like the inevitable second wave.
Back on the street, We asked. You answered. We responded. Last week we included a short survey to gather feedback and as a result this week’s issue will focus solely on articles about ’Workplace’ & bring back a welcome return of the tunes! A big thank you to all who took the time to respond and for any in the #coalitionofthehopeful who missed this, we are still here to listen. Feedback here. More developments coming down the pipe to drive up value, so watch this space.
So, in a week that saw Liverpool FC win the league, walking with ’hope in their hearts’ for 30 years, we close off the weekend with a special Happy Gay Pride to our friends and family in the LBGTQ community and with a poignant reminder in our image of the ongoing need to continue building alliances for positive change remains, on so many fronts across our society.
Hope you enjoy the newsletter. Take care, stay safe & do let us know if we can help you share any positive and hopeful stories in future editions.
