The training really got me…

Is aberystwyth the end of the road??

Today we have brought the question 'Is aberystwyth the end of the road?' to the town of aberystwyth and disucussed with locals there opinions. It's been great to hear their opinions and I feel that this gave us great information that we can use for the assembly on Friday! We have also been working on performance for the assembly based on the responses we received from people today....really looking forward now I feel like I know so much more about aber! Lx
