I made this banner some time ago before I had children. It was for an excellent women’s breakfast which was run by Catherine Butcher in Eastbourne. The logo for the project included a red coffee pot. I used to help set up the breakfast and clear up afterwards. Whilst the women were eating breakfast a speaker would talk about their life, experiences and often their faith. After “Breakfast at the Y” came to a natural close the banner hung in a cupboard for over twenty years. My parents were part of the post-war generation who grew up with rationing and I was raised not to waste anything so I decided to upcycle this banner.
I like seeing this banner when I go to Communitywise, sometimes it reminds me of those times setting up for “Breakfast at the Y” with Catherine, Adrian, Paul and Pauline (who has sadly died since then). Happy memories.
