 Introduction to Bee Keeping – September 5th – sorry the course has been cancelled

Thanks to Willmott Dixon Interiors for all the work to our building and garden.  We’re now back in the office with a fresh coat of paint, new lighting, new storage facilities and desks.  The toilets have been completely replaced and the walls tiled.  The exterior decking goes around the corner of the office giving a great view into the garden.

Classes for children & adults

What we do

People from all cultural and diverse backgrounds participate and enrich our activities. Our volunteer and training programme helps people learn new skills, provides opportunity for social interaction and outdoor exercise as well as offering horticultural training for adults with learning difficulties. Environmental and food growing sessions encourage and develop awareness of organic methods and composting.  Bangladeshi women and older people as well as families participate growing their own food. Our 5-a-side futsal pitch provides programmes to improve health and well-being for young people as well as generating vital revenue from hiring. We provide respite from over crowded housing in our Early Years drop in and weekend play provision for children.
