An Even Better Arbourthorne

Growtheatre has been working on a brand new and exciting initiative recently and we would like to share all the brilliant news the project has brought upon us! An Even Better Arbourthorne is a project that aims to develop and create fantastic, long-term opportunities to build a better future for the children, their families and the Arbourthorne Community! Growtheatre has been presented with the wonderful opportunity to create a partnership with Arbourthorne Community Primary School, to provide support with the running of the project. Throughout An Even Better Arbourthorne, we are setting up a range of early projects and schemes that will begin to address: Food Poverty, Fuel Poverty, Health and Nutrition, Enterprise and Local Action!

Here are just some of the fantastic schemes people are getting involved with!

  • Family Feast – cooking and sharing food together at the school’s Family Feast sessions.
  • The Big Dig – gathering a team to work on the school’s community house garden to plant lots of lovely fruit and vegetables.
  • Fuel Strand – finding ways to reduce the costs of energy in homes.
  • Community Fridge – we have applied to the Community Fridge Network for a fridge and freezer and plan to redistribute surplus food through a Community Fridge scheme. We will also develop food, nutrition and cooking projects connected with the Fridge.
  • Action Stations! – a small grants scheme put in place to provide small amounts of money to support ideas that would benefit the community.

The project has had a brilliant reception from parent volunteers, staff and children in Arbourthorne and has had some fantastic supporters such as;

  • Experience Days (
  • TeamSport Karting Sheffield (
  • Monkey Bizness (
  • Sheffield Sharks (
  •  Co-op Northern Avenue, Arbourthorne


We look forward to sharing more news on An Even Better Arbourthorne Project over the next coming months!
