Park Life Heavitree is a community group that aims to bring together people in and around Heavitree Pleasure Ground in Exeter. We do this at the moment, through running monthly events in the park. These normally have a theme and always involve quality hot drinks and cake! We also support the community through our share a meal scheme, funded through Sport England, the couch to 5K running clubs and summer volleyball sessions, provided free cooking lessons to our local schools and elderly and several other projects.
One of our main aims is to build and run a community hub and cafe. We have a fund-raising team who are hard at work raising money to build the facility. Our building team is made up of local volunteers who have the skills and experience needed to deliver the project. The facility will provide a hirable space and will act as a community hub – allowing Park Life to better deliver its aims. The community cafe will provide a safe and warm space as well as quality food and drink. Any income generated will go back into Park Life activities and the park itself. We have the full support of Exeter City Council who are the land owner.
