Smithy Community Play Space
Grow Our Own
Our project seeks to build community cohesion in our community by having young people and residents working together to improve the Smithy play space . Alongside this we would like to positively engage the community in taking a hands-on approach to looking after where they live collectively.
- 1. The project will bring the community together whilst enjoying being our side in a multi-use space that all the community will use.
- 2. The project will mix ages together and build a strong sense of community belonging. It will also break down barriers between older people and young people.
- 3. The project will provide fresh fruit and veg for residents to enjoy and it will increase on people mental health and wellbeing by them being involved with an activity where they can socialise.
- 4. Our project will involve planting and growing many fruit and vegetables and flowers and this will help improve the appearance of the space as well as create habitats for creatures to live.
