I spend most of my time getting everyone together, keeping everyone communicating and looking at how 2. everything fits together, big picture. As we’re a team of very busy volunteers who can’t always meet in person, I do my best to make sure everyone knows what’s going on around the team and everyone has lots of support.3. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I love exploring little, undiscovered bits of Brixton. Wondering around the little roads and alleys and taking in the sights, sounds and colours.

One of my favourite things to do after a TEDx Brixton meeting is grab some lunch and sit in Windrush Square and watch the world go by.4.

Only just started it but it promises to be challenging book about making a difference in the world.6. What’s your favourite TED talk? So hard to pick just one!

Make sure you have a fair idea about the size of the gazebo you are going to build. Don't try to fit a huge gazebo into a small piece of land. This will end up making you backyard look crowded and will actually decrease the beauty of the landscape. If availability of land is not a problem, then you should base your decision of size, on the purpose of the gazebo. If you are thinking of holding parties inside the gazebo, it is better to allow as much space as possible. On the other hand, if your gazebo is going to be more private then you may be happier with a smaller size. Make sure you gazebo plans have accurate measurements of all dimensions of the gazebo.
All you need are some good gazebo plans and you can build your very own gazebo just the way you like it. This will also be much cheaper compared to buying a gazebo and you can also add any kind of furniture or accessories you want into the gazebo. A gazebo will definitely enhance the beauty of your backyard and raise the price of your property.
