Thank you to local resident Joanna Ramasawmy, who is running a free socially distanced wreath making workshop on 5th December 2020. Share your garden greenery (or pick some up from the local gardens offering up spare if you don’t have a green patch of your own), followed by a zoom workshop where Joanna will help us make beautiful winter decorations! Find out more information and how to take part by joining our Facebook group.
We hope that everyone is safe and well at the moment. Given the unusual circumstances, we are not having a face-to-face Annual General Meeting. However, we would like to keep you all updated as to where we are and a reminder of what we have been up to (despite several recently cancelled events!). We look forward to next year returning to normal and being able to resume our community get-togethers.
The Foodbank donations box is now out at the stall on Leyland Avenue every Saturday until Tuesday.
Please consider popping a little something from your harvests in to help ensure Sopwell residents in need get some fresh produce each week.
There are clean punnets and hand sanitiser available.
Located on a driveway at the end of Leyland Avenue.
Please follow coronavirus guidelines and walk/cycle if you are able to.
We are incredibly proud to announce that Kate Swindells, the driving force behind Grow Community – Sopwell, has been included in the Independent newspaper’s Happy List 2020. The list celebrates people doing remarkable things to unite communities during the pandemic. Kate was secretly nominated by a local Sopwell resident for “all [she’s] done for so many of us in Sopwell, especially during Lockdown, and for what [she] will no doubt continue to do in the future”. We are so lucky to have someone of her heart, vision and determination to inspire the community. Well done Kate!
