We are pleased to host a sports day for under 11s at the Marlborough Sports Garden, Union Street, on 14 July 3.30-6.30pm. There will be a range of sports and games for children under 11 plus a chance to have your say on the redevelopment plans at the Marlborough. Everyone is welcome, please drop in on the day.








We are very pleased to be taking part in the Chelsea Fringe for the first time this year. As this brilliant festival of gardening and all things green has grown to become an incredibly creative and entertaining event, we thought it was about time we joined in and shared a taste of the Best of BOST.

So please download a map – or follow the link for an interactive online version – get your trainers (or your wheels) on and come and visit us. We’d love to meet as many new people as possible over the coming weeks to share what we do. For more info please email to info@bost.org.uk or give us a call on 0207 403 3393.
