What’s on in Coopers Edge this week……….

We post a weekly diary of events in Coopers Edge to keep everyone up to date with what’s going on. If there is anything going on you want added, or you have some activities you want to run please drop an email to hello@coopersedgecommunitygroup.co.uk


Coopers Edge School

Whilst not a community event directly Coopers Edge School opens its doors to pupils for the first time on Monday. There has been massive community involvement in the establishment of the school and we would like to wish all the staff and children a fantastic first week.

Community Consultation

We will be undertaking a thorough consultation of residents in late September. We are in the process of preparing the questionnaire and need to ensure all the important issues are raised. We need to test this with approximately 12 residents & need volunteers for this & to attend the Temporary Community Centre on Monday 12th September at 7.00 p.m. The consultation will lead to our local action plan & so please help us out with making it right. – We already have some volunteers but you are very welcome to come along!


Family time

1pm til 3pm – at the Community Centre. Run by Brockworth Children’s Centre this is an ideal opportunity for parents and carers with children under five to get together.


It’s a big day of mid-week fitness on Wednesdays!

Buggies Mummies

10am til 11am –  One hour every Wednesday of safe effective training to help you burn off your ‘baby fat’, and tone up your muscles. First class is free, for more information and contact Andy on 07739791939 or see http://www.dymondstrength.co.uk/#/coopers-edge/4549165924


Thee are two classes on Wednesday evenings, one from 6pm til 7pm and 7.15 til 8.15pm. (Please note there is a wait list only for the second class as it’s full at the moment).

Stay and Play

09.30am until 11.30 am it’s Stay and Play! Stay and Play is suitable for parents and carers with pre-school age children and is a good opportunity to meet up with fellow parents and carers. There is a selection of toys and a snack and drink will be provided for the children and tea/coffee for adults. We just ask for a donation of £1 to cover drinks and snacks (plus 50p for each extra child).

questionnaire. 07739791939 or see http://www.dymondstrength.co.uk/#/coopers-edge/4549165924

Coming next week…..

The first ever Coopers Edge Clean up day take places on Saturday 24th of September. Starting at 10am from the bus stop near the T junction. It is basically going to consist of picking up the litter – womble style. As such we will need a number of team leaders to help with the organisation and a host of volunteers to pick the litter – the more the merrier. Hopefully it will show what a pro-active bunch we are and that we want to take charge, pride and care of our environment and our community in a positive way

Coming Soon…..
