Affirming Childhood Offering Recreation, Nurture and Safety

“From little acorns mighty Oaks do grow”



ACORNS is Arena Community’s new afterschool programme - ACORNS celebrates the

wonderful time of being a child offering safety, recreation and nurture. The programme not only provides a safe place for children to play but also seeks to provide children with a warm meal at the end of their busy school day.

The club includes games, activities, homework help and aims to help children form and maintain good relationships within a safe and caring environment.

All our staff are DBS checked and have experience in working with children so you can rest assured that they are in safe hands.

This club operates from our community building on Belfield Street but there will be a mini-bus that picks your child up from school and returns them to school for you  to collect.


This is a pilot project and we only have limited spaces available - as a result attendance if by invitation only.


The club is free of charge.
