Our Services

Messy Play 

Messy and sensory play sessions at the Pavilion start on Friday mornings 10am-12 noon. For under 5s with parents and carers, these sessions are free and open to the local community. This is a joint project with Sunnymead Minnows (Cutteslowe Community Centre and Cutteslowe School) and NOA.

Goodbye to Annexe Mural 

NOA worked with students from the Cherwell School on a mural on the outer wall of the Annexe, facing the Diamond Road car park. The mural as designed and painted during the after school art club at Cherwell. Huge thanks to the generosity of the Mid Counties Cooperative Community Support Donation and the Round Table to fund the materials for this project, and to the enthusiasm of Cherwell students and art teacher Jon MacKay. Unfortunatly general wear and tear left the mural looking very sorry for it's self and realistically beyond repair.


Partnership with Read Easy

We've partnered up with the Read Easy group.

Read easy is a charity who help provide free help for adult who either can’t read or are not confident with their reading. We offer free space for classes to the organisation so that people are able to have their lesions in private if they would prefer.  


If you would like more infomation about Read Easy or would like to join their team of volunteers check out their website here


NOA gratefully acknowledges support from the Mid Counties Cooperative fund towards the mural painting.
