Pavilion in the Park

Will you help the Alcohol Education Trust create a café and community space on The Great Field, Poundbury?
Can you imagine a park so large it will have a mile running track, shady walks for dog lovers and families with a thousand trees being planted, and an outside gym for those wishing to stay fit? Visualise a lovely children’s play area too within walking distance of a thriving first school?
Imagine an all weather surface pitch and a Parkour (free running) area making the space a hub for teenagers, with 2,000 being in walking distance from the local secondary school?
Imagine a simple wooden cricket pavilion style building with a veranda at the heart offering shelter, eco-conscious refreshments and public loos to all those enjoying the park? It will also house a community space able to host activities and holiday clubs for young people and a vital training space for the children’s charity running Pip’s café and community hub?
What better home for The Alcohol Education Trust that works nationally helping 500,000 young people in 2,100 schools, youth and sports clubs make safer , healthier choices , improving their , improving their,resilience and life chances each year?


 

Until now we have operated out of a garden garage and in 2019, our 10th Birthday, we have been given the wonderful opportunity to build a family and dog friendly café, community hub, disabled loos and office on The Great Field at Poundbury, a new development on the edge of Dorchester with 33% social housing. The café will help fund The Alcohol Education Trust’s vital work as well as offer youth training, employment and volunteering opportunities.
