Our bridge-building team was out and about in Barking & Dagenham in July 2021, challenging people to have a go at building their own self-supporting bridge, inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's design. The bridge-builders of Dagenham had a chance to work alongside people they wouldn't normally meet - an opportunity given extra meaning as we emerge out of lockdown.

Bridge-building gives a chance for the community to come together
It can also challenge us to try something new!

And the best bit...building bridges is fun!
