This November we're delighted to be welcoming two new networkers onto the CASS team.
We asked them a couple of questions so you can get to know your new networkers:
What is your connection to Bristol?
Emma: Well, I moved to Bristol 17 years ago, but I did also live in Bristol for a year when I was 20 (quite a few years ago!!!). I grew up in Calne Wiltshire so used to visit Bristol for concerts and more when I was a kid.
Amber: I was born in Bristol and came back after university because I love it so much as it is such a vibrant and friendly city.
What are you looking forward to as CASS networker?
Emma: Well I am really looking forward to working in a team. My other work as a freelance choir director is great but it is mostly me on my own. I am looking forward to getting to know places in South Bristol having moved here only three years ago I haven't really explored the area much. I'm also looking forward to getting to know the people here in South Bristol too, seeing what's going on and finding out how I can use my skills to help others.
Amber: I'm looking forward to getting to interact with and hear the voices of the community members.
One thing you do in your spare time to support your mental wellbeing?
Emma: I love walking my dog! We have a staffie cross called Milo who I was very reluctant to get but 8.5 years later I love him to bits and can't imagine life without him. My walks with him everyday are a brilliant way to clear my mind and enjoy nature and especially all the different seasons...and get some exercise!
Amber: I enjoy cooking and eating well and getting outside to appreciate Bristol's lovely green spaces.
