Together for Our Planet

We’re very excited to announce that FOVPS have been awarded £10,000 by the #NationalLottery Community Fund to start a new project in 2022 to support our community to take action on climate change.

Building on interest and excitement of COP26, we plan to nurture and develop local ideas through this funding, to support a legacy of ongoing climate action projects.  The funding will pay for structures, tools, equipment, room hire and staff time to run the projects.

Community Food Growing 

We will be setting up a series of raised beds where we can come together and learn about growing our own vegetables and fruit, including installing a series of composting initiatives to make sure everything we don’t eat can be returned back to the soil. 

Sessions will be weekly, every Saturday afternoon, 1-3pm. You can come to as many as you can, there will be no commitment, but we do hope that many families will get involved and see the process from seed to harvest.  Come and Grow it, Cook it, Eat it with FOVPS!

Before we can begin growing we will need help to clear our plots and build the raised beds, so start your New Year with us with some outdoor exercise, good for the body and mind during January & February.

Weekly storytelling

Every Saturday morning at 10-10.30am, our friend Georgie will be telling a children’s story with an eco, nature or food theme and an associated craft activity.  Meet outside the Community Building.
