A promising start for Alison

AlisonDPhotoIt's been a promising start for CRCW minister Alison Dalton at the Building Bridges project in Tonge Moor. We are very fortunate to have access to Alison's personal diary, which has recorded Alison's thoughts and feelings over the past few months.

Dear Diary...

WEEK 1 (27TH OF APRIL – 3RD OF MAY 2015)
"During my first week I was immediately impressed by the care and concern shown to me by everyone I encountered linked either to the church in The Centre, the Building Bridges partners or the wider Tonge Moor community.

"I quickly felt overwhelmed and exhausted by the realization of all I didn’t know, people would try to guide us but we didn’t have the reference points we needed to make sense of the directions. I began to realise in a concrete, rather than theoretical way all the information, networks and nuances I had understood and left behind with moving from one community to another."
