WhatFresh air, free drinks, creative activity and a warm welcome!

Breath of Fresh Air was part of our weekly residency at Moat House Park, Wood End throughout March, April and May 2022. These woodland wellbeing sessions where an opportunity for local community members to spend time in the park, take part in a creative activity and have a cuppa under the canopy of trees.


Where do we meet? We will be in the middle of the park at the back of the Moat House Leisure & Neighbourhood Centre, Winston Avenue CV2 1EA and will have bunting, chairs, tables and signage so you can see where we are.

How long will each session be? Sessions last 2 hours but you don’t have to stay for the whole session if you need to leave.

How many people will be in a session? The sessions are drop in so numbers of participants can vary but we have seating for up to 15 people at one time.

What if the weather is wet? We have event shelters at the ready if the weather is wet so don’t let that stop you coming!

Are there any toilets? Unfortunately there is no toilet at Moat House Park but you can access the toilets at Moat House Leisure & Neighbourhood Centre.

What do I need to do to prepare? Just bring yourself, wear shoes that keep your feet dry, warm clothes including a coat. We will provide all of the resources and equipment you need for the sessions.

Is there somewhere I will be able to sit? We have wide comfortable camping chairs at the sessions.

I have have a disability/health condition/access needs which may prevent me from attending, is additional access support available? 

Yes, we want to make sure you feel safe, comfortable and cared for when you come to the sessions. In order for us to achieve this care we need to know about your needs so we actively encourage you to let us know any health conditions/disabilities/access needs you and your tot have.

Please call/text/whatsapp Kerry on 07907 823125 and she can chat with you to explore any specific needs you may have in relation to the sessions (including spatial, sensory, social, physical and mental) so you can feel safe and your needs are understood. This information is completely confidential and will not be shared.

I may feel nervous and would like someone I know to come with me is that ok? Yes if you would like someone you know to come with you to support you then they are welcome to come.

Can I bring my dog? As the session is an open drop-in session for everyone you are entitled to bring your dog should you wish to. What we ask is that you consider the temperament of your dog in relation to other humans and other dogs, as we want the session to be relaxing and stress free for everyone. If you do bring your dog we will just ask you to sign an agreement stating that you take full responsibility for your dog.

I’m not keen on dogs – please be aware that the session is open to everyone so there may be participants who might bring their dog and there will be dog’s and their owners walking in the park. Any participant bringing a dog will need to have the dog on the lead at all times and should there be any dogs at the session we will monitor the impact this has on participants to ensure it is a positive experience.
