Nature Nurture – The 5 Senses

Research shows that a greater connection with nature can make us happier! This NEW course will focus on the delights of autumn in our natural environment, looking at what is happening in nature in the autumn and using our senses to boost our wellbeing.

It will include a mixture of time exploring outside, related nature-based activities inside and time for coffee and a chat.

The course is offered at the King George V Hall by Mary Frances Trust, a local charity offering support for emotional and mental wellbeing.

The course begins October 11th and continues weekly on Wednesday for 5 weeks. If you are interested and to find out more about this course, please contact:
