Compost Culture

St. Paul’s Community Development Trust are delighted to be part of a project called Compost Culture supported by funding from The National Lottery Community Fund Climate Action Fund. We will be working with a fantastic set of partners, led by Incredible Surplus, to continue our work developing a closed loop system on site, where our organisation will compost all of the food and other biodegradable waste we produce and use the compost to grow fruit and vegetables. The systems we develop here at St. Paul’s will be a place to look, learn and find out about composting and we’re looking forward to inviting you to events and activities where you’ll be able get involved in this important Climate Action activity.

Wonderful Easter Playscheme 2021

We were able to provide 20 play scheme places per day for children most affected by Covid over the Easter holidays. We opened for 9 days and ran afternoon sessions offering children healthy snacks and fun activities including Easter art & craft, sports and games, an Easter Egg Hunt, activities on the farm and trips out to Moseley Bog.

All the children were referred by our local schools and they really enjoyed themselves. The scheme was fully funded by ‘The Grimmitt Trust’ who have supported our play schemes previously and kindly donated enough funding to enable everything to be free of charge for parents. We were also donated Easter Eggs from the YMCA that were well received!
