Great vibe at the Community Café this afternoon, thanks to everyone who came along – local families, the walking group, the service users from the Wilfred Spencer Resource Base, and our helpers from Grapevine and Adult Education.
We will be open again next week, please come and join us for some fun with Slime!
Painting the clay work and adding glitter…
Our Friday afternoon Café is now closed and we will be re-opening our Summer Community Café on Wednesday 26th July from 12-2pm in the Byrne Room at Allesley Park Community Centre, and running for four weeks. We are still looking for another person to help with the Café on a Wednesday for the four week period, making sandwiches, hot & cold drinks, and serving customers. We will provide you with a Basic Food Hygiene Certificate free of charge! If you’re interested, or know someone who is, message us on our Facebook page, or give Tilly a ring on 07456333948.
Looking forward to seeing you there!

Yesterday Claire and I visited the baby hedgehogs at the Hogs Rest Hedgehog Rescue Coventry. Lorna very generously helps us with our DIY tasks, with advice and lending tools. Lorna is also based at Allesley Park Community Centre, and is the person to go to if you find an injured or sick hedgehog in Coventry – follow the link to her page for contact details. Some of the babies are due to be re-released… here are Claire and Tilly the hoglets, who will be leaving the Hogs Rest soon!
When Holly and Belle arrived we made some fairies and fairy houses to put in Allesley Park with the fairy community we visited in the half term Café. Belle has put some in her own garden and kindly shared a picture to our Facebook page.
Don’t forget about our summer Café, running for the first four weeks of the holiday. We’re planning some outdoor art in the park, some upcycled art, some hedgehog art… final programme to confirmed soon!
The Café sign is finished…
Belle enjoyed helping to paint our information board.
Don’t forget our Summer Holiday sessions, leaflets coming out to you soon!
On Friday we got busy making a sign for our Café and organising flyers for our summer sessions.
And we have received another generous donation of useful gear from the guys at YMCA Hire…
Details of our Summer Holiday Community Café… hope you can join us!
Last Friday we used our large scale painting to tell stories. Everyone enjoyed a relaxing afternoon drawing down on the floor!
We are planning some Summer holiday sessions, so please check here or on our Facebook page for updates.
It was lovely to meet Holly and Belle this afternoon for a chat and a play with the craft materials. Belle would like to work large so next week we’re planning to tape some paper to the floor and use our whole bodies to make art!
Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.
Collected a huge donation of craft bits for our Creative Arts Café project at Allesley Park Community Centre, Fridays from 2-4pm.
Hope you can join us for a cuppa and a chat, and a play at the arts & crafts table!
Calling all residents of the Allesley Park area of Coventry! We are running a Creative Arts Café on Friday afternoons from 2-4pm for the next 5-6 weeks.

We are hoping to recruit two volunteers to help us run the café, we are offering a Food Hygiene Certificate in return for your help 😊.
