Chapelhay Community Playgarden Association was set up in 2006 to make the playground a safe, attractive and welcoming space, offer activities for children and the wider community and help build a stronger local community. We meet on the first Sunday of every month 11.30-12.30 for gardening, odd jobs, chatting and playing.
As well as our Easter, summer and Christmas events, we will be running Let’s Grow! again this year, a project to encourage local children to ‘grow their own’ veg which we will turn into a meal in October. Last year, the children dug up two buckets-full of potatoes which we turned into chips for 25 people within an hour!
All our events are FREE. Please come along to join in or find out more – you are guaranteed a warm welcome!
