The initial 8 week period earmarked for the Living it Up Pop Up Shop operating in the Stornoway Town Centre came and went. Such was the demand that the doors stayed open for an additional 4 weeks bringing the events, workshops, gatherings, music, drop-ins sessions, and more, to a close in early September 2013.
Mary Sinclair the Living it Up Western Isles Project Manager said
Creating an informal meeting place open during shop hours provided a welcoming place for us to meet people across our diverse community. It has been a wonderful experience to speak personally with individuals about how they keep themselves well and what interests and needs they have.
Maciver Project Services are delighted to have been part of this success both in facilitating workshops and drop in sessions and supporting the promotion of activities taking place in the Shop.
