Join Imayla for an autumnal roam around the Farm, the Community Garden and Narroways Open Space and harvest a song from these beautiful spaces, We’ll be ending up at Boiling Wells for
refreshments and a song around the fire. Hope we might see you....

All ages.


3-year funding success

We are delighted that we have been successful with our 3-year continuation bid to the BIG Lottery 'Reaching Communities' Fund.
Thank you to all who gave support, testimony and useful stats over the past year and we look forward to working together into the future.
In the new year we will be able to take our work forward from the 'Wildly Different' project onto 'Even More Wildly Different', continuing to support children and young people in care or living in difficult circumstances, their families, carers and communities across east and central Bristol.
We look forward to working with new and existing contacts. If we haven't worked with you before and you'd like to be involved when the programme restarts in the new year, get in touch.



Imayla's Summertime plans!

Having wrapped up Year 3 of the Wildly Different Programme (which was incredible, by the way), we are still planning many fun filled activities for the rest of the year.

Watch out for news on our Ashley Summer Fun Day on 30 July, and also our annual trip to Tribe of Doris Intercultural Summer School in August. Please do contact us if you wish to get involved!

Also, we will be holding a Celebratory Exhibition in Hamilton House's Exhibition Space / Gallery in November. We will be displaying photos and information from the past 3 years Wildly Different Programme - everyone is invited to celebrate what an amazing journey this has been!

AND if that isn't enough, we are planning for the Wildly Different Programme continuation in 2017 onwards. Watch this space!
