It’s the Venny’s 40th Birthday! For 40 years we have been providing a safe and supervised place for Children to play. We have changed a lot since we started in 1981, from being only a fire pit and loose parts, to the old Venny building, and now to the wonderful shipping container house we call home.

Over the past 40 years we have built things as well as pulled them down, cooked hundreds of sausage and cheese toasties, Cut and picked all kinds of fruit, played with all kinds of animals (goats, chickens, and ducks to name a few), replaced a few trampoline mats and created hundreds of beautiful paintings and artwork. But The Venny wouldn’t be The Venny without the children and community and we believe it is as much your birthday to celebrate as ours!

That’s why we need your help! We need you to help us continue for another 40 years!
