Host a community chest

Community chests are not-for-profit libraries of items such as toys/games for swapping

We can get active outdoors, reduce waste and try out new things by swapping items no longer used for others

Our vision is to have a host venue in each Southampton locality to hold regular events where people can swap items such as toys and games, maybe even plants

Let us know if you'd like to be one of them!

Host a community fridge or pantry

We at NPC believe in removing barriers for people to access healthy, locally grown food

What better way than to share excess fresh produce such food that is grown in gardens or community plots with those in need

Could you host a fridge in an accessible place where people can donate and collect fresh produce? Contact us for more details...

Community street closures

Streets are not just for cars! They can be safe places to play and meet your neighbours too - for games, art, sharing food, perhaps seeds, plants or crops

Here's how to close your street

You could get neighbours together using local facebook groups or connect via
