Pelican Park Community Trust are a registered charity responsible for 12.9 acres of green space, known as Pelican Park, after successfully gaining a 25-year lease from the local authority.
Pelican Park is situated in the heart of the community with over 10,500 residential households surrounding the area. We have 6-tennis courts, 5-football pitches and 8-wickets for cricket, with enough space to organise other activities such as dodgeball, rounders, athletics, netball and other sports that are seen to help improve health and wellbeing amongst people of all ages.
Get Fit Together will concentrate on working with families, who need that extra support, in working together to get fit and healthy. Activities will be offered free of charge and encourage them to get involved in tennis for free along with other multi-sporting opportunities. Sessions will be offered for a total of six week, over 52 weeks with a positive outcome of getting more people getting involved a grassroots level.
Ground is made up of a community of artists of all types (rough and polished) and activists.
We want to open Ground 3 days a week, for art making, skill sharing, and prolific tea drinking:
Tuesdays: ‘Chaos Office': for experimental performance and 'Inside-Out' : a communal art making session.
Thursdays: 'Skillabalooza' : a skill share with sessions in Risograph printing, sewing, Free software, herbal medicine & whatever people suggest/bring, and 'Ground Presents': artist talks.
Saturdays: 'Open day': for exhibition viewing, and workshops.
*Exhibit work by 'unschooled' as well as 'established' artists. We value art over credentials!
