Where is Spark?
We are located at the side of Springhill Academy in the centre of Burntwood, Staffordshire.
What is Spark?
Spark is all about a community coming together to run it’s children’s centres voluntarily. We are a new organisation, founded in the Summer of 2015. Spark is all about offering fantastic opportunities to children and families. Run by parents for parents.
What is happening at Spark?
We have a regular timetable of activities such as playgroups, courses and groups, but also weekly and special one off events. Sign up to updates or check our facebook page to keep up to date. We also run more general community type activities during evenings and weekends so keep checking back to see what we are up to.
Who is Spark?
We are all local volunteers who care about Burntwood and enjoy getting stuck in. Many of us are involved in running community activities and events or just care about the area and the people that live here. If you would like to get involved please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How has Spark formed?
Following on from a petition to keep the Children’s Centres open and funded by the Council; when faced with closure, local parents stepped forward. Together we formed an organisation to apply for funding to keep the centres open and available to Burntwood families. We are now over two years into this exciting venture and we are having a blast!
