Go for a walk

We wanted to mark the date by showing our local patch some love. All of us have been forced to stay close to home and spend time in our local areas so its a perfect opportunity to give them a bit of a spring clean and clear up.
So why not get outside for a walk and pick up some litter as you go, supporting your wellbeing and showing love for your local patch at the same time.
Don’t forget to share pictures of your streets and local green spaces after your hard work. – #EarthTogether #WildTogether
You must follow social distancing guidelines and also please also take the following precautions.
 – you must wear gloves, the thicker the better, for protection
 – if you have BBQ tongs or other pick-up device it will really help
 – Never touch the litter directly

Make a Garden Trail

We’d love to see what’s in your garden, or even on your windowsill!  Please keep sharing photos – nature can have a big impact on our wellbeing, and sharing love of nature can have an impact on everyone around you!  You could even make a garden trail documenting with photos, video or drawing what you see. Please share on Active Communities Going Wild #EarthTogether #WildTogether
