March 18th 2020 – our Muddy Boots garden and Place of Welcome is now closed until further notice

We have taken this action following the latest Public Health England advice. It is our fervent wish that all our visitors, volunteers and partners stay well, and that their families, and those they care for, do so too.

Keep well everyone, and we will put further service updates here when they arise.


Feb. 2020 We are now part of Places of Welcome

‘Places of Welcome is a growing network of local community groups providing their neighbourhoods with places where all people feel safe to belong, connect and contribute’.

Our Muddy Boots garden project is a haven of friendly support, encouragement, community…or just a place to sit quietly and think. Why not visit us on drop-in mornings on a Thursday. We sit in our ‘more than a shed ‘ space, have a cup of tea, and often a piece of cake, and gently get to know each other.

You would be most welcome too. We would love to see you.

Discover the Places of Welcome network and ethos on their web site   – www.placesofwelcome.org.uk
