For many people, it feels like life has been turned on its head and the future is uncertain and worrying.
The prospect of staying indoors and isolating is daunting and unwelcome, but it’s important that everyone looks after themselves and each other in this strange time we’re going through.
However, the world outside our four walls is still there, and spring is still gracing us with beautiful blossom and fabulous flowers.
Nature is still here for us. We need to make sure we’re using it.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it a thousand more times if we need to: spending time outdoors has a really positive effect on our physical and mental health.
The majority of our green spaces remain open at this time and we encourage anyone who needs a break from their home to take some time to visit if safe to do so.

Land, in particular public open space and wildlife, has always been my passion and here at the Land Trust I get to make a difference. I enjoy covering a large area of England and Wales and seeing a wide variety of sites. No site is the same, so it makes my job interesting.
