Inspirational volunteers finish their debut year
People who will become catalysts for action in their communities in Bath have graduated from a national programme after a year of working.
The national Community Organisers programme will train 500 people around England by 2015.
These senior organisers will then recruit a further 4,500 volunteer community organisers.
The programme is about inspiring community action at a neighbourhood level with the message "igniting the impulse to act".

Organisers listen to the concerns and aspirations of people in their area, build relationships and help people take action on their own behalf on the local issues that matter to them.
The scheme in Bath is run by the charity RE:generate.
Rob Wicke, a Bath community organiser, said one of the highlights of his year had been helping a man in Farmborough to set up regular table tennis sessions in the village.
Bath has been a pathfinder in the programme because of the success of work to establish community organisers in the south of the city.
The programme was created by the Office for Civil Society in the Cabinet Office and is run by Locality, a network for community-led organisations in partnership with RE:generate.
