This website has been created by Anne Yarwood, resident in Ascot for over 50 years, to show how individuals CAN effect change… can DO something about their concerns, in an imaginative way.
This month’s theme is –
SELF EMPLOYMENT: Choice or Necessity?
I chose this theme because Volunteering and Small Community Groups have featured large on the website. Women and Men’s hands outstretched to take customers’ money…direct exchange …called for attention. Recollections of Self Employed individuals came from experiences within my small village comfort. Around here, ‘money to hand’ balances ‘help’ needed. Then I woke up one night ashamed at my limited vision. Not been thinking of nearby URGENCIES TO EARN ….. Distant places worldwide DESPERATION TO SURVIVE.
THE BLOG starts off with buoyant success …Riverford Organic Vegetable deliveries.
THE STORY stays within a picture of a Coffee Merchant’s success, based on security of background.
THE GALLERY introduces community determination to emerge from war- torn chaos; unleashing Self Employment potential by Intermediaries; young high- flyers in Europe and finally Ants; the story of a local Project, ‘Insect Armageddon’ which alerts to honouring fellow ‘workers’.
TALES returns to heartening words from local Self Employed; they say ‘work for myself… freedom, hard work mostly using my physical strength and long – honed skills and with my HANDS’.
WAKE UP trumpets Self Employment whilst unearthing limitations within the sector requiring serious Government overhaul action.
