  We are pleased to thank “Let’s Get Connected” for helping to support our Climate project in 2022 – this has now ended. The project involved running Sensory walks, art and outdoor activities on the theme of “Climate Awareness.”

Thanks to support from Essex Community Foundation and The National Lottery we are now working on the next stage of our  Climate Project 2023-24.  We are planning a new series of sensory walks, art activities and nature topics based at Grange Farm Centre, Chigwell, Essex, IG7 6DP.

This will include engaging with other local groups including Men’s Shed, local schools, dementia groups, VAEF, ACE Activities and GP referrals.

We will also produce a new version of our Life Force magazine along with 2 exhibitions to illustrate the work of all of our partners.

We are also pleased to have the support of The Soho Sandwich Company who provide sandwiches to ourselves at our events and to our local food bank 3Food4U
