Help us fund a new playground for Caldmore Community Garden!

Donate online: https://localgiving.org/charity/caldmorevillagefestival/project/CCG/ (don’t forget to GiftAid it if you can – we are part of Caldmore Village Festival, registered charity no. 1144062).

In 2019 we knocked on doors, talked to people at events and asked visitors, parents and children involved in our holiday play scheme what they would like to see in the Community Garden.

Swings have been the one top thing that kept on being mentioned over and over again – so we are fundraising to make it happen.

Help us make a difference to the local community, get involved in our fundraising activities and donate to help us create a new playground.

Calling all Walsall Dinner Ladies!

Caroline Molloy is a photographer based at Caldmore Community Garden. She is making a small scale research project in Walsall that raises the visibility of dinner ladies – there is a family connection there, as her own grandmother was a dinner lady, too. She aims to share personal narratives and photographs about Walsall based Dinner Ladies. 

She is looking for personal contact to start this research and is available on Wednesdays, and can either interview at the Caldmore Community Gardens (although times are restricted to opening times which are 10-4pm), in own homes or in a place of work. She is looking to conduct an interview, scan any photographs and at some point make a photo portrait. 

If you are interested in taking part, please get in touch with Caroline on 07889 987 991, e-mail carolinemolloy@hotmail.com or message Caldmore Community Garden.
