Growth and Change: the documentary that follows 30 years of the Calthorpe Project.
Our thanks to Ruth Cebrian for her creativity and hard work
We’re sad to say that Jack Harrison, our Sports Development Manager is leaving us. He will be moving to Tokyo at the end of July to start an MA in Peace and Conflict Studies. His last official day at work will be the 17th of July.
Jack’s relationship with The Calthorpe Project began fourteen years ago playing football on the pitch. For the past five years he’s been a member of staff and has helped us become more financially sustainable by rejuvenating our pitch and setting up leagues and special events. Jack will be a hard act to follow and we will be recruiting his successor in the next few weeks. All the staff and Trustees send best wishes to Jack.
Carless boot sale will be closed for the next couple of weeks and reopen again July 19th.

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.

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.
