Objectives

Flo’s – The Place in the Park is a new community owned and managed enterprise hub in Florence Park, East Oxford which opened in the Autumn of 2018. Since the closure of this former children centre, we have come together to create a community-run, welcoming and inclusive place for families and people of all generations to meet, eat, work, play and learn. Flo’s is a vibrant hub for community life: a place where people are able to relax and enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of the park, meet others in their community and learn from each other.

Flo’s is an innovative and courageous new approach to running a community space - using enterprise as a way to become a self sustaining organisation.

Activities

Currently Flo’s houses The FLO café which serves healthy, locally grown food, Flo’s Nature Nursery for 2-4 year olds, The Isis Community midwives, a community space which is free to use for anyone to spend time in, and several rooms to hire. 

We also run lots events which provide amble opportunity for local people to meet each other and strengthen local connections. We are int eh process of developing several support groups for families- and in particular carers of children (such a peer led "Dad's" group).
