The neighbourhood will be running another jumble trail this summer, so get Saturday 9th July in your diary if you want to sell items or walk round, chat and pick up some bargains.

If you’d like to join with a yard sale at your home, drop us an email for more info and to be added to the list.

This Saturday: Celebrating 10 years of eggs!

We’ll be back in the park this Saturday (16th) between 10.30 & 12 for our annual Easter Egg Fun event. Hard to believe it’s our 10th year, and so great to be back in our normal format after a couple of years of COVID adaptations.

This year we’ll also have a seed/seedling/plant swap table, so bring along anything that you have to swap, and help others get started with the joy of growing. (Feel free to bring spare pots etc too.)

And some of the Enterprise Community Car Club team will also be on hand to explain more about the benefits of joining the car club…something that more and more people are doing with the ever increasing costs of owning and driving cars.

We hope to see you on Saturday.

Update on What’s Up Events

It’s taken a while to collate all the feedback from our July Pop Up events in the park, but you can now take a look at a spreadsheet with ideas collected in the Park, which add to the existing conversation that we started at the start of this year.

Read all about it here, as well as what’s next.

What If…Pop Ups in the Park

We started our ‘What If’ conversation during the winter pandemic, and now want to continue with some face-to-face conversation. So we’re hosting a couple of drop-in events in the park on Friday 9th & Saturday 10th July.

We’ll have:
– local architect students’ designs based on the neighbourhood ideas so far
– an opportunity to chat
– an opportunity to add and comment on ideas
– and maps showing the history of the site.

Drop in any time between 3pm & 6pm on Friday 9th July or 11am & 4pm on Saturday 10th July. It would be great to see you!

Our What If question (in case you missed it):
What if, as a neighbourhood, we could use part of the Wimbledon Park Sports Centre site?

What would you add to the neighbourhood to maximise smiles for everything that’s part of our community: children, young people, adults, wildlife, plants, ground and air?

And find out more here.

Jumble Trail Map for this Saturday – Live!

You can now view our Jumble Trail map for this Saturday. Homes will have yard sales at the addresses listed between 10.30am & 1pm.

Feel free to browse, but remember to socially distance. If there is already a group at an address, hang back until there is space to safely shop.

We’re an event that is all about reducing waste and keeping items being used for longer, and in that vain we also ask that you have a copy of the map on your phone. There will be one map available at most homes, so you can take a photo of it, but we won’t be issuing paper copies.

We hope you have a great time this Saturday.

Link to the map here.

Date for this Year’s Jumble Trail

We’re pleased to announce the date for this year’s Jumble Trail.

Saturday 12th June 2021

10.30am – 3pm

If you’d like to have a stall, drop us an email or message us on Facebook  with your name and address.  We ask for a contribution of £2 to help pay for flyers and posters, and if you can help flyer your street, that would be great too!

Nearer the time we’ll have the map of stalls available here.

The event works best when there are several stalls in your street, so please do mention it to neighbours, as the more the merrier.  Remember you can be selling things you don’t need anymore; sell things that you make; or set up a refreshment stall.

Looking forward to more decluttering, bargains and street fun.

What if….conversation update

We’ve had a great response to the ‘What if…’ conversation, and are hosting three short calls over the next couple of weeks to update people on ideas that have come in, and to talk about the next steps. It would be great if you can join us for one of them. Just drop a quick email to us with which call you’d like to join, and we’ll send over the Zoom details.

‘What if’ Conversation

If you live in the patch we’d love you to be part of the converation that we’re starting around these questions:

What if, as a neighbourhood, we could use part of the Wimbledon Park Sports Centre site?

What would you add to the neighbourhood to maximise smiles for everything that’s part of our community: children, young people, adults, wildlife, plants, ground and air?

There are lots of ways to get involved, and some background to why we’re asking these questions, so please take a look here for more information.

Have you done the Southsea Advent Window Trail this year?

Image may contain: night, text that says '# COME AND SEE THE LIGHT 魔'

So who’s enjoyed an evening stroll around the neighbourhood to see all the advent windows this year?

As with last year, there are 24 windows with numbers to spot, but this year there are some additional ‘stocking fillers’/windows to spot too.

You can find the full map of the trail here.

And as with last year, we’re fundraising for Shelter, as we appreciate having homes to be warm in this winter.

Windows will be live until at least 2nd January, so you’ve got a couple of evenings to still get round them. Enjoy!
