Peacemakers Coordinator Reverend Palmer and several of the Prayer Patrollers are taking part in a local event next weekend. The Rev is the keynote Speaker for Life Universecity upcoming Soul Enrichment Seminar on Saturday 19th March, 2016. This will be held in the city’s newly built Education Facility, the Junction 3 Library and Learning Centre, Easton.
This particular site is of particular interest to the Rev and her Team. This is one of the boroughs that they patrolled for 7 years. When they began, it was a volatile and dangerous part of the city for gangs, drugs, stabbings and robberies. But it was not long after they were there that transformation begun taking place.
Derelict buildings were demolished, and new affordable housing began to take shape. This was particularly wonderful because at that time there was a shortage of housing in that area. Now, there is also provision of several self-contained shopfront units under the flats, which creates new enterprise and employment.
Central to the new development is a stunning modern architecture which facilitates a library, conference and meeting rooms, with some technological equipment for use in house, and open spaces for reading and other activities.
