CHASE is essentially a community development organisation.
As a community development organisation, Chase brings together local people who collectively solve issues in the community.
It believes in a grassroots approach to changing how local services can be delivered, for the benefit of the local community.
Chase is always open to new ideas, it encourages people to have their say and helps to identify solutions and bring them to life.
Open 5 days a week, CHASE provides a caring service that is open, transparent and beneficial to its client group. All CHASE staff have up to date Enhanced Disclosures from the Criminal Records Bureau. All Safeguarding Policies and Procedures are up to date.
Located on Carr House in Hyde Park, Doncaster. Our facilities include toilets, kitchen, eating area, office, classroom, a 300 square metre greenhouse, Polytunnels, fruit garden, herb garden, flower beds and vegetable growing areas. The site is secure, calm and quiet.
We have a wide range of visitors to CHASE. Throughout the years we have had local school children learn about food production through to young offenders carrying out their community service. It's not only horticulture at CHASE, we've had dog training and yoga classes too!
Evidence of the local history, heritage and culture of Allotments in our local community, is in The Hyde Park Allotment Association Shield (see below), first presented in 1921 to J.E. Sowden by the then Mayor of Doncaster, Samuel Morris for the best kept allotment on the site.
The shield was last presented in 1990 to F. Robinson.
The Allotments in Hyde Park have contributed significantly to our local heritage, culture and economy for the past 100 years. In many ways, Chase is trying to keep our local heritage alive.
