Chesterblade Hills, Evercreech: Thursday 8th October for six weeks, 10am to 3pm
Combe Grove, Bath: Wednesday 7th October for six weeks, 10am to 3pm
We collaborated with The Natural Academy in 2019 for a pilot of nature-based courses for people living with and beyond cancer. The feedback was fantastic. There are limited places still available for our next courses in Bath and Evercreech - please get in touch if you'd be interested. Groups meet once a week in a beautiful natural setting and take part in guided individual and group activities aimed at increasing a connection with nature. Claire took part in the first course after her experience of breast cancer:
"I’ve been totally inspired by it. Simple things like listening to the rain, two years ago I would have been sat at the laptop and I wouldn’t have even noticed it, I wouldn’t have taken the time to go out and stand in it, which I would now because it’s priceless. It was a gift to have the time to be outside, be peaceful, be alone in good company, I couldn’t wait to get there every week."
Many thanks to the team at Chesterblade Hills for allowing us to use the stunning Green Heart Space and Combe Grove Manor Hotel for lending us their beautiful setting for WHYoutdoors. Both can be hired for events and activities and offer a range of services - click through to their websites to find out more.
