In the words of the Dave Clark Five, "I'm... (doof doof) Glad All Over” that I've been invited back onto TEAM Panel for a second year.

The past 12 months have been great. I've been to many new places & met lots of new faces in my role on TEAM Panel & as an active TEAM Member.

Highlights, you ask?

Well, they include my first visit to Wrexham for TEAM Performance Party, meeting lots of very talented folk, swapping ideas & introducing them to the many ways they can get involved with us.

Stories of the Streets gave me the opportunity to see my Scriptwriting skills put to the test by a fantastic creative team.

TEAM Choir also enjoyed our first performance at the beautiful Penarth Pier Pavillion.

Helping put together the Mid Wales Rethinking Education meeting in Brecon & representing TEAM at the Big Democracy Project in Llandrindod Wells were both great opportunities to establish new contacts & spark new ideas & debate.

Getting involved in putting together NTW's Strategic plan & being invited to report at Board Meetings has confirmed to me that TEAM really is at the heart of NTW & is an essential part of what National Theatre Wales is. It's refreshing to know that Community is not a box to tick for NTW, it's a cornerstone of the company.

In the coming year I'm really looking forward to continuing to extend the community into Mid Wales, I've started some great conversations with many people up & down the A470 & am excited about what we can achieve...

Here's to 2016!
