Lottery win for Southsea Greenhouse

Have your say

We are excited to announce we’ve won almost £10,000 from Awards for All to run more of our Skillshops.

After the success of our European Social Fund gardening and craft sessions, which we piloted earlier this year, we now have the money to run another 40 in the coming year, which will be open to all.

This will help us extend the tasters of crafts and gardening skills to men and women of all ages and abilities and improve their confidence and employability.

Nina Moscrip, an artist from the Greenhouse Co-op, says: ‘This is fantastic news and allows people to build their confidence, make new friends and learn new skills.’

We will be running workshops on everything from gardening to home crafts so get your gardening gloves ready, pop into the garden on Tuesday/Thursday mornings, or call 07530 913 211 to join a project group. To find out more about Skillshops: go to
