At the end of February, I was pleased to shoot an employment event organised by Triangulate, Romsey’s local mental health charity, whose website I manage. It was the final event in the Abbey to feature The Light, a four-metre illuminated globe designed by Richard McLester and suspended from the Abbey’s vaulting.

The trustees of Triangulate were delighted to attract an audience of over 100. It included Cllr John Parker, Mayor of Romsey, members of the Chamber of Commerce and respresentatives from a wide range of employers. Richard Frost, from Mindful Employer in Exeter, endorsed Triangulate’s messages in a short talk.

The Abbey’s AV team projected a  series of films onto the globe. They included filmed conversations with Triangulate Trustees. Ian Cox spoke about the support Mindful Employer can give an employer, and Bridget Brook focused on the need for employers to treat mental wellbeing in the same way as they would physical wellbeing. The Vicar of Romsey, the Revd Canon Tim Sledge expanded the theme to include support for the whole person.

Informal discussions with Trustees, Richard Frost and his colleagues concluded this very worthwhile event.
