We are making deliveries to people who have recently had a baby,
people who live locally and need help with accessing food,
and young people who normally receive free school meals.

Story Stomping as a Family with Brockwell Greenhouses

 

We know the days are getting brighter now and it will soon be time to get together again for our really popular Story Stompers sessions with Brockwell Greenhouses. 

These sessions will be coming soon in April but until then, we’ve teamed up with Beth at Brockwell Greenhouses to create these fun Story Stompers resources for you to use at home and in the park with your family. 

There are 3 different story packs: 

Owl babies

Tiny Invisible World of Microbes- Story Stompers

Hooray for Birds

Each story pack includes a link to the story online, a walk in the park to discover parts of the story, and crafty things to do at home that connect to the story. 

(Click on each link to download the digital resource)

Get outdoors with your little ones this Easter holidays and enjoy the sunshine and local parks while reading together and getting creative with what you find in nature. 

For more info or any issues downloading the packs, call or text Helen on 07701365551

Our mission

Health

Promoting healthy lifestyles is at our core. Encouraging, training, informing, supporting. 

Activities

We offer activities which promote the health and wellbeing of everyone in the community.

Sustainability

Our projects are self-sustaining. For the community, by the community.

Community

The neighbourhood is the beating heart of our project. People having control of their own wellness. 

About

We believe that greening our environment and working towards healthier lifestyles are great ways to bring people together and create real social change. Our team has set up community gardens, started cooking projects and food businesses, and redistributed tonnes of surplus food. We have seen the benefits of creating communities of people who do things together to look after themselves, their families and their neighbours.

As health costs rise and government funding declines, there has never been a greater need for people to do things for themselves, to look after their own wellbeing. Also, the recent surge in awareness of the urgent need to address climate change means there is a massive willingness in our communities to take action. We are passionate about improving our environment and know that we can feel healthier and even have fun as a result.
