We want to see our towns grow and be vibrant communities supporting the local economy
We have a lovely path that is a disused railway-line. We have created a super nature corridor. What we now need is a few picnic benches dotted along the path. This will give people and families to use the path and stop and enjoy the nature. This is great for mental health, teaching children about the nature on our doorstep, helping people to make new friends with a common interest around an interesting subject, that is monitoring and recording the wildlife around us. This might be birds, fungi, insects, butterflies or bees. It is just a great way to get people talking and making friends. There are also two schools who can do field trips and have nature lessons.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
It brings together a community and helps high risk lonely people have a platform to make new friends and find a common interest. It is an easy interest to get involved in and is a gradual learning curve. Unlike joining a running or cycling club, where a certain degree of fitness is required beforehand. This is something that people can get involved with monitoring and recording wildlife and then join the work-parties and help to create habitat for wildlife.
Steps to get it done:
