Based in Didcot, we offer opportunities to socialise and learn new skills in horticulture, woodwork, arts and crafts. Members have been cultivating our two-acre site, which includes an orchard and vegetable beds, since 2005. Members decide together what activities they will do.

Members have opportunities to gain insight into their strengths and consider positive changes they want to make. We acknowledge that this can be hard work, so regular time is set aside to reflect on how things are going, both as a team and as individuals.

The project is open from 9am to 4.30pm. Members arrive at 9.45am for a 10am start, there is a morning break and a lunch break at 12.30. The activity sessions finish at 2.30pm but occasionally members stay on until 3.30 for individual meetings.

Members usually attend one or two days a week.

Members arrive at 9.30am, where we have a short meeting before starting the day with the first workshop of your choice. There is a morning tea break and then the day continues with the workshop.

Lunch is at 12.30 which is prepared by staff or members. After lunch we continue with workshops.

Members and staff carry out communal chores before the end of day meeting. This is a brief well-being meeting to check in on everyone’s day.

Members are free to stay and chat for the last part of the day. The day finishes at 3pm.

Fill out a Referral Form and someone from Restore will contact you.

The Group meets at Fleet Meadow, which is less than a mile from Didcot town centre. The site has good public transport links, disabled access and car parking. For members who are unable to get here otherwise, we offer a minibus service.
