Celebrating Shared Spaces

Shared Spaces celebrates the lives of some of the people who use the shared spaces in our community. One side of the book is about children and families who go to Onslow Park and the other is about women who come together for a craft group. Play is important to both children and adults and these shared spaces provide that opportunity and all that comes from it.

We live in Leicester, but the benefits of these shared spaces is true of parks and group activities anywhere. This book is published in 2017 by South Highfields Neighbours, a long-established residents’ group active in supporting local community issues and events.
