DISCOVER PATCHWAY - GREEN SPACES MAP

Discover Patchway is your outdoor guide to Patchway. The map shows the parks, playgrounds, nature areas, allotments and other outdoor spaces that you can discover and enjoy. It offers suggestions of activities, plus routes for you to walk, cycle, skate or wheel between the various green spaces.

If you would like a copy of the map they can be found at lots of community spots, including Coniston Community Centre, Patchway Town Council, Patchway Library, The Hub and many more. If you think they should be available somewhere else or if you visit a drop off point and see they have run out then please let us know and we will top them up.

If you would like to get involved with green spaces in Patchway in any way, then please contact Ellen on ellensegalov@southernbrooks.org.uk or 01454 868 570

Help us to create a greener Community

Would you like to get involved? There are plenty of opportunities. Get in touch with Ellen: ellensegalov@southernbrooks.org.uk  01454868570

Throughout March and April, we are in the running to win a grant of up to £5000 from Tesco Bags of Help initiative. Find out how you can help us here.

At the moment we work at four different places:

  • This community garden is open for everyone to come and join in at every Friday from 10am-12pm.
  • We are growing fruit, veg, herbs and flowers.
  • It’s a great place to meet new people, have a cup of tea and learn from each other about looking after a garden.
  • New people are always welcome and we share everything we grow.
  • Tools and gloves are provided, but please wear sturdy shoes.

Do you live close to The Parade and want to help make it look beautiful? Join us on Wednesdays from 3.30-4.30, everyone is welcome to come along and help.

It will be an opportunity to meet your neighbours and to create a greener area.

If you are busy, then why not just have a look when you’re popping to the shop.

The young people at the youth centre work really hard to look after their garden and most of all enjoy eating what they have grown.
