Our beautiful borough is home to more than 1,000 hectares of open space, over 2,000 different species, and are known to have one of only a few ‘chalk’ streams in the world.
We’re proud of our diverse habitat and are grateful for the important role it has played in our lives during this challenging year. Lockdown has enabled us to rediscover what’s on our doorstep, inspiring many of us to explore nature in our neighbourhoods for the first time.
Connecting with nature helps provide much needed relaxation and reflection during a time of great uncertainty, supporting our mental health and wellbeing, improving our mood and helping to reducing stress and anxiety.
We want to know how you have connected with nature, so we can share your experiences and help inspire others in the community.
Where do you go for your greenery fix? Have you discovered any hidden gems on your daily walk? Have you spotted a new furry visitor in your garden or become a bird watcher?
Whatever it is, we want to hear from you!
