    A fantastic, standing-room only community fashion show on Friday with amazing food, kids having the time of their lives and good vibes all round!  Then a really stimulating, inspiring event on Climate Colonialism in Otley with 30 folk attending.  Last night Storm Debbie didn't dampen our spirits for the group watch-in to the awesome DEAL programme.  Well done to all involved so far.  I can't wait for more later in the week!
