CoCoMAD 2020 - the stay at home/DIY festival

CoCoMAD 2020 is back – but because we can’t all be together in the park we’re creating a DIY festival for your home or garden for Saturday 4th July.

Although it won’t be quite the same as dancing in a field with your friends, family and neighbours, we’ll have all your favourite music, art, science, circus and dance available to stream, 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

NEW: Cotteridge Park Community Building

The Friends of Cotteridge Park have been working really hard towards replacing the Sons of Rest building and toilet block, demolished in the late 1990’s, with a small community building.

Building work has started, with most of the construction cost funded by grants and trusts.

We need your help to raise the last bit of funding needed to fit out the kitchen and toilets and some furniture!
