Community Initiatives at Edmonton Green!
Edmonton Green is about sharing the community with the community. It is about learning who your neighbour is and about strengthening that fantastic community spirit that is already held within. We hope you enjoy this blog highlighting the fantastic community initiatives that we pride ourselves on.
Little Free Library
Little Free Library was launched at Edmonton Green in celebration of World Book Day. The library was designed by Christina Kalinowski, founder of Doodle Designs.
The freestanding library box offers free books to anyone who wants one — and accepts donations of books to pass forward. The honesty box library intends to complement the local library onsite, act as a local meeting place and promote sharing and reusing of books, and is open 24 hours a day!
Children can play to their heart’s content at Edmonton Green Shopping Centre thanks to a state-of-the-art playground in the North Square!
The garden is designed to host workshops for green-fingered members of the community, as well as being somewhere pleasant for visitors to sit and enjoy a well-earned break.
These last few years we have seen an increase in the number of people using bikes, which is fantastic! And in light of national bike week, Edmonton Green aspire to encourage more people to discover the joys of riding a bike.
Therefore we have installed a free-to-use bike repair pump so that anyone using their bike in and around the Centre that needs a quick bike fix can repair it easily and stress-free.
In addition, a bike wall has been installed next to the bike racks, by North Square. It includes a fun quiz to take part in, see if you can find all the answers!
We have also created a plant-sharing area for our green-fingered community to enjoy.
The rules are simple, take a plant, then leave a plant!
The community is at the heart of what we do at Edmonton Green, YOU are Edmonton Green, and together WE are Edmonton Green.
