Our News


(Above: learning about natural and cultural heritage, South Yorkshire)

Our volunteers meet like minded people who care about our communities; they get involved with events, activities, local groups, projects and delivering resources. Volunteer teams recently produced a range of resources for use with our Learning Community, from healthy eating  and attachment and PACE parenting to basic skills and helping hedgehogs. The annual seasonal work that our volunteers do on heritage and wildlife monitoring and surveys, builds identification skills whilst creating important local maps of trees, plants, animals, landscapes and cultural heritage. Volunteers nurture peer support groups for families with adopted children. Adult care has been a recent learning topic.
We were delighted to deliver our programme: "Out to Learn" with Juno Enterprise Learning Community. The project secured funding from Big Lottery Fund.

We wish to thank: Dawn Chorus Educational Initiative CIC for ongoing project delivery and infrastructure support; Derbyshire VCI Consortium for publicity opportunities; Nottinghamshire County Council for help with safeguarding issues and checks and Community Accounting Plus for advice on our accounts. We have made a huge expansion of our community learning resources, most recently adding to our diversity activities resource; trans racial adoption information and elective home education support. Popular spring activities have included a childrens pre-history project and family wildlife activities for ponds and bees.

Below, top: what a nice "thank you" gift from Little Adventurers Forest School for our help with the woodland winter festivities for children and families. Below the "wishing yule log that the forest school children made.

Our Moth-Watch Challenge had good community participation and turned up many colourful species such as the Poplar Hawk Moth.

What our supporters say

With thirty years of experience, Juno Enterprise is a ground breaking charitable association with a valuable, enlightened message. Though small, the charity catalyzes rejuvenation in England, Wales and in some of the poorest places around the world by empathizing with communities, engaging volunteers and advancing practical and informative learning activities that help people to feel good”, Barbara B., supporter.

“By networking knowledge and encouraging people to share skills and help each other, locally and internationally, Juno Enterprise is making an excellent contribution to the wellbeing of our communities and planet Earth”, F. Brown, supporter.

Below: As part of a project funded by The National Lotteries Awards for All we produced foraging bags for children's environmental learning activities. They have been very well received.

 Above: Andrea Wright, Woodborough Preschool manager said: "These bags are wonderful, they will really help the children with communication skills. The children will love them, they are a good activity". 

Cindy Bamford children's activity leader thanked us for supporting Woodborough Preschool: “it has enabled us to purchase thermal socks and warm waterproof gloves (see below) which will allow the children to experience and hopefully learn to appreciate nature all year round. The children are really happy learning and having fun in their natural environment. The gloves and socks are keeping the children lovely and warm. “

We have given significant support to the SEND project, it is open to young people aged 14 – 17 and is based at the Greenway Community & Training Centre (below) in the Sneinton area of Nottingham. The areas population has a high proportion people from new and emerging communities, in particular from the Czech Roma community. Moon Cavanagh a director of SEND said: “thank you once again for supporting the work we do at SEND, it really is most appreciated".
