A CHANCE meeting after an Inspire Network meeting led to South Tyneside member Angela Reed getting involved in a unique art project.

The mum-of-two, who launched Creative Calligraphy six months ago, was approached by artist Mark Gibson as she waited in the reception of Bede’s World in Jarrow.

“Mark overheard me telling the receptionist that I did calligraphy and came over to introduce himself,” said Angela, “He explained that he had a meeting the following day about an art installation he was hoping would be commissioned for Bede Metro station in Jarrow.”

To celebrate teaching birthing classes for two years now (mainly in Sunderland, but also in Spennymoor and Bishop Auckland) I’m holding a party for all the parents and babies (some now toddlers) who have attended them. I’m hoping it’ll be a great opportunity for mams to catch up with others (and for me to see how their babies are growing up). Some of the very first mums I taught will be there, some of them with their second bumps!
