NEW: The Shed Has Landed

The Shed – our new community building is finished (except for the outside painting) and we are nearly ready to open.

Keep an eye out for “guinea pig days” when we’ll be practicing if you are willing to be a guinea pig!

The building is all paid for but we have had to use nearly all our reserves to do it.

That means we will struggle to provide some of our usual activities this Summer and Autumn until we can top up the funds.

Can you help raise the last £5,186 by making a donation to the building fund

Virtual CoCoMAD 2020

Virtual CoCoMAD 2020 will be staying online for the rest of the Summer so you can have your own festival anytime you want.

Although it isn’t quite the same as dancing in a field with your friends, family and neighbours, all your favourite music, art, science, circus and dance is there, plus a virtual market place.

Go to the website for all the details.

Getting Fresh Air is Good For You

Getting out and about in the park is a good thing to do – just keep your distance from other people.

Here are some things you can do that don’t involve going to the swings.

And if you are missing tai chi, swingfit or the pre-schoolers forest school you can join in online at Active Parks
