When life throws us challenges, folk in the movement are great at being alongside each other during those tough times. Right now the world, more than ever, needs us all to be a camerados.
Lots of people are using video-conferencing to connect now that we're all shut indoors but......sometimes it can be really rubbish!
We all talk over each other and it's a little nerve-racking. So we're trying out a fun idea to make it easier - help us give it a go?
Download our #SpoonRoom guide and try holding one with folk.

One of our 6 principles is.....
Mix with folk who don't look like you.
This principle should be easy to fulfil but it isn't even for those of us who have experienced how much better a place is when people from all walks of life join together to look out for each other.
Segregation, racism and discrimination are everywhere as shown in the most horrific way in America with the death of George Floyd. Black Lives Matter and as Maya Angelou says when asked what can we do she says "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."
We have to work at this, the rewards are too valuable to ignore.
#Bit of Company
Keeping folk fuelled with company and tea during covid- 19 lockdown.
If you fancy a little bit of company for 10 minutes or so then take a seat and watch, filmed deep in a bunker....(well under a bunkbed) is Maff with his tinfoil hat, bringing such delights as ThingummyGigs, self isolationists handbook, music from around the world and Maff's never ending list of favourite camerado inspiring films.
Do you like the thought of people looking out for other people?
People just being alongside each other - No fixing needed? And understand that we can all be a bit rubbish sometimes?
If it’s a YES join this crowd for a bit of PARK LIFE... or a MIDDAY MEANDER, you know you’ll feel better afterwards!
For PARKLIFE just bring something to sit on, maybe a flask and something to eat and get ready to be together. For MIDDAY MEANDER just bring yourself and wear some comfy shoes.
Download flyers here to organise a PARKLIFE or MIDDAY MEANDER near you.
