'Our Maidenhead' is a collaborative project aimed to tie in with National History month, celebrating Maidenhead past and present. The wall-hanging will consist of 49 panels, each depicting a different aspect of life in Maidenhead. One aim was to involve as many people from the community as possible, so Sheila put the call-out to see if any GoodGymmers fancied exercising their creative side and contribute to the mural. As usual, W & M Goodgym did not disappoint! Everyone took on a different topic, inspired by a favourite place, activity or which otherwise had a particular meaning for them. I was blown away by the different approaches and creativity of everyone in the group, using fabric, felt, wool, netting, beads, sequins, buttons, embroidery and quilting to depict their chosen topics. Well done to Amanda, Celine, Georgeta, Hannah, Jess, Nicola, Sheila, Sophie and Tessa for depicting such diverse topics as Braywick Nature Reserve, The Brickworks, Parkrun, Cliveden, Boulters Lock, White Waltham Airfield, Maidenhead Advertiser, Goodgym, St Lukes Xmas Tree Festival, Maidenhead Bridge and Maidenhead Library. Amazing! After the squares have been assembled together with the other contributions, the mural is planned to be displayed in various locations in and around Maidenhead
