Project overview

Starfish are delighted to be one of 91 organisations across the UK who have been awarded The Platinum Jubilee Fund from National Lottery to fund 18 months of community engagement work in green spaces in the Wood End/Henley Green/Manor Farm/Bell Green/Aldermans Green areas of the city.

The award will enable Starfish to:

Run monthly Days of Doing events (between May 2022 to Oct 2023) alternating between Moat House Park, Wyken Slough Nature Reserve and Wyken Croft Nature Park to bring the local community together to connect and work together through creativity, culture and nature conservation to implement areas of change in the community.

Develop The Jubilee Trail (between June 2022 and Oct 2023) creating geocaches with the local community to place in green locations in the local area.

Run Space to Grow sessions at Henley Mill Allotment for all community members with a focus on wellbeing, creativity and growth.
