Strength in Nature

A free 12-week course for people who have had time out of work due to having a long term physical or mental health condition.
We will be 'hanging out' in nature over the course doing a variety of things like gardening, crafting, working in woodlands, enjoying nature walks, drinking tea, connecting with others and perhaps going on some micro adventures! It's going to be a bit like forest school for adults!!

We are running a couple of taster sessions at Growers Row, the shared garden at the Rutland Showground in Oakham on:

  • Thursday 30th September (9.30am – 11.30am)
  • Thursday 14th October (9.30am – 11.30am)

If you would like to attend, please email Rob at the address below to book a place. There's no commitment at these sessions, just a chance to see if it's for you.

Return to Play: Simple ways you can help people return to sport and physical activity

With lockdown restrictions continuing to ease in line with the Government roadmap, many forms of sport and physical activity have now returned.

To help make this experience as attractive and enjoyable as possible for participants, Sport England have highlighted 'five simple ways you can help people return to sport and physical activity'.

These tips, based on recent insights around attitudes, intentions and feelings about getting back into activity, can help sports clubs and other providers consider how to make the best of their return to activity and include:

  • Showcasing your safety measures
  • Emphasising the enjoyment factor
  • Showing the benefits, not telling the benefits
  • How to ease people back in
  • Focus on keeping it cheap or free

To view these tips in full, visit the Sport England Return to Play page, where you can also check for information on current restrictions and explore the detailed return to play insights.
