Our Elder Stubbs Recovery Group is now open.

We are also pleased to announce that our Elder Stubbs shop is now open Monday-Friday 10.00am-2.30pm. Treats available include fantastic jams, honey and chutneys, as well as fresh flowers, seasonal plants and great tasting ‘cloudy’ apple juice from the orchards. You can also often find handmade items such as bird boxes and bug hotels. Please Note- CASH ONLY to purchase.

Sessions have fewer numbers and have Covid protocols in place to meet government guidelines.

All recovery sites following Covid do now have an enhanced capability to offer this in special circumstances with a time limit  to members where attendance is not possible on their day of attendance

This might include:

    • Signposting to online support groups
    • Signposting to benefit support, food banks, volunteering opportunities, and any social networks
    • Discussing relevant recovery goals, e.g. maintaining wellbeing, creativity, exercise, good eating, maintaining contact with friends/family
    • Sharing news and tips from staff, and the other Recovery Groups
    • Sharing information to help you prepare for the resumption of regular life, i.e. maximising job readiness if you are working with an Employment Coach

We are based at Elder Stubbs Charity Allotments in Cowley, East Oxford. We offer opportunities to socialise and practice skills in horticulture, cooking, marketing, woodwork and other crafts. Together the group decides what activities they will do.

Our members have been cultivating approximately two acres of mature allotment land since 1997. We have seasonal flower and vegetable beds, orchards, woodland and sensory and wildlife gardens. All the produce is sold in our allotment shop and to local caterers and businesses. As well as our garden produce, we sell jams, juices, craft and woodwork items, and recycled tools.

Elder Stubbs is open between 9am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. Lunch is provided. From 3pm to 4.30pm there is an optional peer support and social group. Members usually attend one or two days a week.

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

The Elder Stubbs Recovery Group is at the Elder Stubbs Allotments on Rymers Lane, opposite Florence Park in East Oxford.
