Buxton Flowerpot Trail 2021

We had to make some changes to the  Buxton Flowerpot Trail last year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic but we (hopefully) resume to normal for 2021. Click here for all the latest new.

To get involved, please contact us.




This year, the project is supported by a Derbyshire County Council Action Grant.


We took a look back at our first big community project - M.A.S.S.I.V.E. which was to celebrate the Millennium. Our plans had to change due to the COVID-19 pandemic but we continued online.


Changing Faces 2021

This project involves weekly, after-school and some weekend workshops for local, young people aged 11-18yrs who face difficulties. We work with local schools and youth services and hope to make a positive impact on the lives of our participants. We always welcome new practitioners and volunteers to get involved.

Between September 2017 and December 2018, this project was supported by Children in Need. In 2019, we received grants from The Bingham Trust and High Peak CVS Health & Wellbeing Partnership. For 2020/2021, we secured funding from Derbyshire County Council. Workshops restarted in February 2020 but were suspended in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To see the project page, click here. We hope to restart the workshops in spring 2021.

Please get in touch if you are interested in working with us or to refer a young person.
