In September 2017, Oxfordshire County Council awarded the contract to the community-backed local charity Aspire, to work with the community to incubate a welcoming, community-led and managed space in this fantastic building in the heart of Florence Park.
The name of the new centre is ‘Flo’s – The Place in the Park’ (or ‘Flo’s’ for short) and re-opened its doors to local families and other members of the local and wider community in 2018.
Flo’s features wholesome café – The FLO – open to the whole community, a nature-focused nursery, an open-access space for family drop-in, the continuation of the community midwives services, crafts and training open to all – and more.
The story goes on! You can find updates on what we are up to now in our News section.
