Look for a Light Project

Communities have pulled together during Covid-19 producing relationships that would not have been seen before. New Inter-generational relationships have gained importance in communities.  There is a sense of neighbourhood. The cohesive work that has been completed during Covid-19 is an asset which we wish to retain, and with the lack of being able to properly celebrate Halloween and Bonfire night the Look for a Light project came into being as something to get involved in, something fun, something that creates light in the dark days of autumn and winter.
