NEW: The Shed in Lock Down

Welcome to The Shed – our new community building.

As we are supposed to be staying indoors for all but essential activities, the Friends of Cotteridge Park trustees have decided that, The Shed will stay closed while the lock down lasts

The decision will be reviewed regularly.

Check facebook and twitter for opening hours when The Shed re-opens.

DIY Forest School – Every Wednesday we have a leaflet available for a new forest school activity.  Collect it from The Shed (after the 2nd lockdown) or download from facebook or twitter.

Meet at The Shed (except for Baby Stroll).  Don’t come to any of the sessions if you, or household members, 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.
