One year ago today Annie Webster gave us an opportunity to take over her events. It does not seem five minutes since the initial conversation. Liz and I already had ideas of where we would take the Well Being Shows. And we hope that Annie has not been let down in her trust in our endeavours. It is great to see Annie continuing and prospering with Moonlit Pathway Books. Without Annie’s decision we would not be here today. Thank You Annie x

Where are we today?
Well, think about this: LizianEvents News now contains 347 posts and has received 475 comments and in three days it will be a year old (the first week did not have a post each day). We have posted seventy-six Community Member Profiles (not everyone provides information). And LEN has been read an astounding forty thousand times. The classified ads are finally making headways, as is the ten-day-old free directory which now has thirty-six listings, and many are not Community members: this fact indicates people are watching and using the platform from outside of the Community. The inference of this information is the objective of building an important infrastructure of information, services and products which are accessed from a central point is making progress.
What is the size of the Community?
We have a list of one hundred and thirty Community Members. Out of this number, seven have found our platform does not work for them (five percent). Comments such as ‘I cannot make any money at the shows’ or ‘I do not like your terms’ are indicators of why some drop out of the Community and three we asked to leave. However, the numbers who wish to be part of this thriving and influential Community-based infrastructure is growing.
How can I evidence this?
Well, with just seven weeks to go before the Lincolnshire Well Being Show opens its doors we have eighty Community Members committed to attending. There are many more to join the show, and we have fourteen new members booked for November who cannot participate in June.
One Year ago today we started the journey, and the first Lincoln Show saw forty-one Community Members join in the experience. At the same marker one year later, we have already doubled the number of Community Members attending The Lincolnshire Well Being Show, and we have seven weeks to go.
Thank you to every one of the Community members who has made this possible. Thank you for your investments, time and faith in our organisation. Let us see where we will be in twelve months time.
See You Soon
