Pollinator Paradise

 

On the 1st March 2021 we are launching our brand new competition, Pollinator Paradise, to encourage the planting of pollinator-friendly flowers in and around Tooting.


This could be your front garden, a balcony, window sill, hanging basket or even around the base of the street tree outside your home.
You can enter any place or planter that can be seen safely from the street and which you have permission to plant in.

There are two parts to the competition; an individual competition and a street competition - so team up with your neighbours and try to make as many pollinator-friendly habitats as possible!

For more information, and to sign up, please see our website specifically for the project.

You can also find our social media details on the website so follow to make sure you get any updates and to share your progress and experience.


Funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, via Transition: Bounce Forward  has helped us to run the Pollinator Paradise competition. Thanks to all National Lottery players for making this possible.

Tooting Share & Repair

We are launching a new initiative - Share & Repair - bringing together repairers, fixers and makers in the local community, celebrating and sharing their skills and successes and supporting fixing, mending and making in Tooting and beyond. 

We plan to:

  • Celebrate local fixing and mending however and wherever it is happening!
  • Promote local repair, fixing and mending businesses.
  • Support online and pop-up skill sharing and repairing events – building on our regular Restart/Sewstart sessions.
  • Build a local network of makers, fixers and menders and the groups that support them with a long-term ambition to find a permanent a self-sufficient community space for Tooting’s Share & Repair community!

We would love to hear from anyone, individual or organization, who would like to get involved. 

Help us by

  • Sharing details with us of any local businesses that do repair, fixing, mending or alterations – this could include working with electrical or electronic goods, furniture, clothes, leather goods, upholstery – and more…
  • Letting us know if you have fixing or mending skills which you’d be happy to share with the community through this group – or you know someone who does….
  • Telling us if you have something to offer the Share & Repair community – space, materials, tools or other skills like project planning, communications, social media, photography – anything which might help us build our work.

Contacting us if you’d like to get involved!
