Over 20 Wellbeing Sessions Delivered

In the last few months we’ve run over 20 wellbeing sessions for local people!

We’ve been working with groups including Battling On, Trevi House in Plymouth, Tavistock Youth Café and Drawn to the Valley.

We’ve run quite a few events with Tavistock Youth Café and one of the highlights was a night camping in Caradon Woods. The teenagers went river swimming, played outdoor games, enjoyed walks in the countryside and cooked on campfires.

We’re running free Art, Craft and Activity sessions to improve people’s wellbeing with Drawn to the Valley. In one session artist #KathyLovell helped participants to make jewellery using recycled and reclaimed objects. They worked with sea glass, stones and driftwood! There will be more sessions, so keep an eye on the AONB events page and social media for updates.

We’ve also been working with Trevi women’s group to support their recovery. The final session this year took place at the beautiful Wyld Thyngz forestschool and the mums and little ones took part in campfire cooking, nature spotting, wild play and craft activities! The toddlers in particular enjoyed the hammocks and play equipment.
