WILLOWDALE

Willowdale Community Place came about when Stocklands offered a grant for a community organisation to run activities and programs in their house at the new Willowdale Estate, Denham Court.  Big Yellow Umbrella (formerly Camden Community Connections) was offered this grant and so began our partnership with Stocklands, bringing the Community of Willowdale together at Willowdale Community Place.  Big Yellow Umbrella are continuing to support the Willowdale Community with a range of services and programs.

All of Willowdale's Programs & Activities run in public school terms only.
