The staff were so helpful and lovely and made us feel really welcome.

Holiday Activities and Food Programme

We have been part of the Holiday Activities and Food Programme, running activities and providing lunch to children and young people during the school holidays.

The school holidays can be tough for families. We believe in providing an engaging, safe space and a healthy, nourishing lunch to the children and young people in our community.

We have worked closely with local partners like Travelling Kitchen to achieve this.

How BBC DIY SOS transformed The Ranch


We couldn’t believe our luck when in October 2021 the DIY SOS team arrived, with an army of volunteers from near and far, to transform the Southmead Adventure Playground.

They spent 9 days and nights working hard, in all kinds of weather, to create new play and hang out spaces for the children, young people and families in our community.

Watch the film below for a quick overview of what happened and see the full story when it goes out on BBC1 in the spring.

If you were a volunteer on project, HUGE thanks to you.
