Why do you love where you live? – MayFest 2014

At the heart of our activity for MayFest last weekend was one simple question:

‘Why do you love where you live?’

People from all over Nottinghamshire and much further afield came and made some fabulous postcards telling us why they love where they live, helping us create a rainbow wall of appreciation for our local communities. Today we’re sharing some of the brilliant postcards which were designed on Saturday:

We were delighted that about 160 people made us a postcard, helping to make our display look very colourful indeed by the end of the day:

It was great to hear all the things people love about their local area – there was a big focus on great open spaces and community, which was fantastic to see.

If you didn’t make it to MayFest on Saturday, why not let us know why you love where you live in the comments below?
