The smallest German Christmas market

We have managed to snag some musicians that play on the world stage

free @ ParkLife Cafe, Harrow Weald Like seriously, how lucky are we? 

—--------------------------------------------------------

In the past year

Several community projects that were started have expanded quickly

Some projects we tried failed!

Overall it is the dedication and commitment of everyone that keeps everything working and everyone smiling.

It would be impossible to create, evolve and run ParkLife cafe without a crew of kind, like minded people, community partners and supporters, who together make all those special people we all enjoy meeting!

Donation of time or money keep the wheels rolling. Can you help?

Unity in the community

Unity in the community project is about caring and bringing people together by creating events to chill and chat in non-contentious ways.

Spending quality time together is human welling in motion.  

It is quite hard to explain how this all works, we all know that if people talk to each other, amazing things happen, some people feel isolated, others have a hard time of things, unpaid carers deserve a break, people that are in vulnerable places in their lives should have a place to chill and feel safe, working people sometimes have it hard and need a break, people that have just moved to our area can meet other, it’s human wellbeing in motion.

These events are supported by some amazing and awesome people.

We are funded by donations, volunteers time and profits we make. ParkLife is community minded, and every single item sold see’s the profits being used for unity in the community projects.. 

Busby clubs

Busby clubs are free events we organise with groups of people invited through our community partnerships to enable people to spend some quality time with others including a meal, light entertainment and a laugh in a relaxing space, each person is invited to leave their life's worries at the door and enter a world of chilling and chatting with others, without life’s stresses. We even catch the bill.

We are always looking for:

  • Guest chef's: We are looking for local Chefs for guest event appearances, if this is you and want to create something special for the locals get in touch.
  • Entertainers: If this is you and want to share something special for the locals get in touch
  • Musicians wanted: is this you? e are looking for people to spend a little time entertaining others at our busby clubs, these are small community events
  • Maybe you are a person that share some holistic services you provide. 
  • Maybe you could help to teach others quick and healthy food options.
  • Volunteers: help at various times. 

Donation of time or money keep the wheels rolling. Can you help?

Bringing people coming together, to get to know others. 

Our projects are about mixing it up, catching people lost or stressed by the system. 

It’s not only about the chilling and chatting, it’s about inclusion, having a place where you can leave your troubles at the door, getting people from all walks of life together and sharing time, bringing together people with different interests.

We are all from different religions, shades of skin and hold different ideas, but hold the same wishes for our lives, share the same nature around us. 

Spending quality time together is human welling in motion >>>>>>>> The path: cutting out negative influences

Friends old and new always welcome!
