Our Winter Wreath making session is back for December 2022!
Join us from 4-6 pm on Sunday 4th December at St Julian’s Church Hall, Abbots Avenue, AL1 2HY, using locally foraged foliage to make a beautiful festive wreath. No experience necessary, you can learn as you go.

Thanks to everyone who came to our AGM to hear about what we have been up to at Grow Community – Sopwell over the past year, eat cake, find out about how and why to get involved and listen to our plans for next year.
We’re so happy to partner with Cottonmill and Nunnery Allotment Association and St Albans Community Pantry on this Community Harvest project. We’ve provided a trolley to share surplus produce with our community. It’s got pride of place at the new Cottonmill Community and Cycling Centre.
Drop off washed and labelled fruit and veg to the trolley. If you drop between Monday and Thursday, you’ll be especially helping the key foodbanks on those days. Let us know if you make something nice with anything you’ve taken from the trolley as well!
Lots of free activities to do at Sopwell’s Autumn Festival: songs, competitions, hearty soup made with local ingredients (and big thanks to St Albans’ Waitrose for their pumpkin donation) and more. Join us on Sunday 30th October from 1.30 to 3.30 pm at the Cottonmill Community and Cycling Centre, off Cottonmill Lane.
Are you a Sopwell resident interested in having a go at cooking seasonal produce, learning something new or just want to get involved in a fun community project? Come along and join in with Grow’s free cooking session from 2 until 4 pm on Saturday 1st October at the Cottonmill Community and Cycling Centre, off Cottonmill Lane.
