School Holidays

We are a close community and during the school holidays we have a lot of children in  danger of getting bored, but they don’t have to!

Ulla holds special gardening sessions in the Rose Garden/Orchard on Thursdays throughout August between 2pm and 4pm (in additional to her usual 10am sessions).

The Avenues Youth Project is buzzing all through the holidays. Drop into the corner of Third Avenue and Droop Street to find out more. Their full contact details are here.

Ryan and his unstoppable team at the QPG Community Hub at 254 Kilburn Lane have organised a programme of Summer Camp events. You can find all their contact details here.

QPG Football Academy expanding to 5 sessions a week!

This project goes from strength to strength.

Last year we told you about the new girls only session and the increase in mixed boys and girls.  This month, boys and girls in the 4 – 11 years age group can join in the fun form 12pm to 2pm on a Sunday.

These sessions meet in the hard courts. Get involved!





Can You Pitch In and Help?

ccmdg5j2_400x400Local Football fanatics and QPG Football Academy supporters in Queen’s Park are being asked to Pitch In! and make a donation towards weekly refreshments for the 50+ young people who are now registered and attend their coaching sessions each week in Queen’s Park Gardens, Ilbert Street. If you can pitch in and help them to continue the brilliant work that has taken place over the past 7 months then please click on the donate now button at the top of the page on their brand new website –  

They are now up to 4 sessions per week (details here) and the Girls-Only sessions are currently funded by the Queen’s Park Community Council’s wonderful grant scheme, which looks to fund new and exciting projects in the area, like this. The other 3 sessions per week are supported by local volunteers & coaches from Queen’s Park Rangers Community Trust. 

Later this month they are having our first ‘away’ match against another local team, which will take place over the entire day. They’d would love to be able to provide further refreshments for this additional time and would be extremely grateful to those of you who are in a position to ‘PITCH! in’ and ensure that the Academy continues to prosper.  

The team at QPGFA thank you in advance for any donations that you make towards the Academy and thank everyone for all the fantastic support, as they continue to establish themselves locally. They’ve achieved so much in the past 7 months and we are all very excited about Queen’s Park having their own youth team in the London Football leagues next year. You can also follow their story weekly on both Facebook, Twitter, Periscope and Instagram by searching for @QPGFootball.

QPG Football Academy Success Story

After seven very successful months of football training and matches in Queen’s Park Gardens, and having formed great partnerships with both Queen’s Park Community Council & Queen’s Park Rangers, QPG Football Academy, also known as QPGFA,  has now expanded to four 2 hours sessions a week including a QPCC funded session dedicated girls session.

On Friday afternoon they launched a brand new website dedicated to the Football Academy.
The website gives the parents and young people the opportunity to keep up-to-date with upcoming sessions, tournaments and our latest news.
Please think about leaving a comment on the review page of the site, which will help to promote this area’s newest sports club. You can also follow the academy’s progress on Twitter @QPGFootball &  Facebook: /QPGFootball
