The daffodils are out and the long winter is behind us!
A huge thanks to the team at Southern Housing who kept our spirits up during the winter as we continued out work at Jubilee Court in Bracknell.
Spring/ Summer 2018 will see us back in sunny Enfield, running a number of events with our partners from Origin Housing. We are also working on a new project in Slough with Thames Valley Housing, where we are establishing a community allotment project with residents in Moray Drive. Fingers crossed for lots of green fingers and sunshine!
In 2017 the team from TWC will be back in Enfield delivering more great projects for the residents of Watermill Lane. Here is a flavour of what we have lined up.

Come and say hello or email us with your ideas.
A fantastic crowd of friends, family and colleagues joined us Sunday 9th November to celebrate our 5th birthday for a fun sponsored Autumn River Walk.
The event was designed to help recognise and celebrate our achievements in helping young people develop new skills and build confidence through our award-winning creative projects.
The day was great fun – the rain cheerfully stayed away and through your generous contributions we raised over £1,500 for the charity, whilst enjoying a fun day out along the Thames.
Thank you so much for all of your help and support. But our hard efforts don’t stop here; we know that people are still generously making contributions to provide our projects with much needed tools and equipment. If you would like to continue giving, the please contact us directly.
Many thanks again!
