Jump on the free Big Red Bus – and help Charlton’s children

A group of local mums have stepped in to save a Charlton playgroup from closure.

Greenwich Council cut funding for the Charlton One O’Clock Club – next to Charlton School on Cemetery Lane – earlier this year. But it has reopened as The Big Red Bus Club, after parents stepped in to take over the running of the club.

Open Monday to Thursdays from 12:30pm-3pm, if offers a healthy eating tuck shop open to all, a large play area with climbing frames, a ball pit, and a place for parents, grandparents and carers to meet and chat.

Organisers are determined to keep the centre free – but want to get as many local people involved as possible, from parents who can join in and spend time with the children, to anyone who can help lock up at the end of the day.

Greenwich Council is allowing the group to use the building – and they are hoping to raise funds by hiring out the centre for children’s parties.

If you want to get involved, visit The Big Red Bus website to find out more.
