NEW: The Shed is open

Welcome to The Shed – our new community building.

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

The Shed has toilets and sells hot and cold drinks, biscuits & ice creams.

All the income generated by The Shed goes back to the park to pay for activities.

The Shed is staffed by volunteers – so opening hours depend on volunteer availability.

We are hoping to be open at weekends, after school and with organised activities (eg tai chi and swingfit). Check Facebook and Twitter for opening hours.

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 Autumn until we can top up the funds.

Can you help raise the last £4,400 by making a donation to the building fund

Covid-Safe Activities in Cotteridge Park

SwingFit – Wednesdays 6pm – Fun dance fitness for the terminally inelegant.

Tai Chi -Thursdays 10.30am – gentle exercise for all ages and abilities, beginners always welcome.

Gardening volunteers – Tuesdays at 10am & Sundays at 10.15am.  No tools or experience necessary.

Meet at The Shed.  Don’t come to any of the sessions if you have any covid symptoms and remember to stay at least 2m away from people not in your household.

All these sessions are free to attend (as we don’t want to put anyone off coming along) but they cost to put on.  If you can afford to make a regular or one-off donation it means we can keep providing free sessions for all.
