Nancy, Sandy and Louise pulled out all the stops to make this an EXTRA-special event packed with interest, imagination and inspiration.
The day began with an interesting and insightful talk on Group Dynamics by keynote speaker Alistair Macdonald. This looked at the different types of people who are useful in forming a successful team.
At midday there were nine varied workshops to choose from - IT; Dance/Pilates; Chinese Exercise; Motivating Volunteers; Personal Presentations; Extend Exercise; Quiz; Cookery Demo; Shadow Puppets.
During the buffet lunch people could wander around and view the many display stands of SGP groups and of voluntary and community organisations from High Peak and Derbyshire.
At the same time entertainment was provided by demonstrations of juggling from Mayhem Circus Skills; songs from the shows sung by Whaley Bridge Uniting Players Choir; and The Billerettes strutting their stuff in the Dome arena.
Fresh from his performance as Leader of the Billerettes, Bill Weston donned a shirt and tie to deliver an inspirational talk on voluntary and charity work.
The special day finished with an opportunity for groups to talk briefly about their latest activities and the help they have received from High Peak CVS.
Throughout the event, Digital Umbrella ran a live blog of proceedings with articles, comments, pictures and videos.
Thanks go to Derbyshire County PCT, Tameside and Glossop PCT and the University of Derby for funding toward the event.
