The SHEDx project encompasses a range of activities to activate and engage the local community of Tolworth, and surrounding areas, to take ownership of their unused and green spaces to help define and improve the future for their town. Utilising original and accessible ideas, The Community Brain are engaging and helping to energise the community; enabling them to shape the future plans for Tolworth. SHEDx is funded through the HLF, crowd funding and the GLA.  Follow our blog here to keep up to date with the project.
