The seeds of ‘We Make Southampton’ were planted back in November 2014, when I was invited to film with a team of Solent University students, a counter-documentary to the ‘Immigration St’/Love Productions/C4 series being filmed in Derby Road.

Fresh from producing a documentary series for Channel 4, I was delighted to take on ‘the mighty’, and challenge the perceptions created in the national media about Southampton, its present and history.

 Much of what I learnt about Southampton since then has been through meeting an increasing number of dedicated, resourceful and talented people who are making their mark; and an even larger number of people who could live a fulfilled, balanced and purposeful life, if the right information, inspiration, and connections were in one obvious place. Anyone who ever achieved anything benefited from adequate and consistent support!
