Reconnecting GranthamBack to Activities
To unite this historic landscape to the east of Belton House, making it accessible to a wider range of people and providing benefits including improved biodiversity, health and wellbeing, learning and skills.
Our hope is that this amazing landscape will become a much loved community resource, benefitting the lives of local people and wildlife.
We provide a range of free and local events to encourage people to exercise and explore their local environment. These activities include guided walks, nature days and wellbeing walks.
Our events aim to get people out in the countryside and meet and talk to other local people. We have a new easy access route, cycle-path and a number of way-marked trails. Woodlands are not always accessible to people with limited mobility or those that use buggies and mobility scooters. We have created a level, easily accessible circular route within the main Londonthorpe Woods site in order to open the site to more users.
This is good for wellbeing because
- We aim to get people connected to their local heritage and take ownership of their local environment. We hope that this local ownership will develop a sense of community.
I enjoyed everything! Learning to recognise trees, to remembering to breathe (relaxation technique, which we learnt). I enjoyed learning about the birds, the sites history, and the hidden gems we found on our way. I enjoyed meeting very interesting people and the colours of the Indian summer and a lot more.
