We are starting a Community Garden!

After the success of our Community Meal, we have decided to team up with The ALT Group once again to create a wonderful Community Garden, open to everyone.

The ALT Group is a local Community Interest Company, we have decided to allow them to manage the land around our club and turn it into a Community Garden space. The project will take the piece of land to the East of the building, which was purchased over 8 years ago and is currently unused; and transform it into a social space which will also grow food.

The area will also be designed with flowers and trees to encourage bees and butterflies and brighten up the area. All the food grown will be donated to the Community Meal, given away to those in need or sold to local businesses to raise funds for new projects.

Everyone is invited to join in the project as there will be tasks suitable for all levels of skills and experience. The project is about learning together and making friends, while transforming the space.

Activities and updates will be made regularly via The ALT Group Facebook Page

Our Community Meal Launch

We have teamed up with local community group, The ALT Group to offer a Free of Charge, Community Meal, every Thursday.

Members and the wider community are invited to come together to enjoy an evening meal, which will offer 3 courses and hot tasty food.

The meal is managed and hosted by The ALT Group who collect local food waste (from supermarkets) and kind donations from local businesses and individuals. They use these ingredients to cook up wonderful nutritious meals in our newly upgraded kitchen.

The Community Meal starts at 5:30pm until around 7pm. It is run by volunteers from the local area who come together to offer this relaxed and informal service. It is a wonderful atmosphere with music, room for children to play and great company.

Donations of food and funds are accepted and your feedback is requested.
