Health Week 2022

Health Week 2022

FREE activities for all the family! Heath Week 2022 – Monday 25th to Sunday 31st July 2022 – with the Thames Basin Heaths Partnership

Kick off the school holidays with a local adventure! Accept an invitation to join us for Heath Week 2022 and we’ll take you on a heathland adventure to discover a local landscape that’s rarer than rainforest! There’ll be nature walks, fire engines to clamber into, arts & crafts, scavenger hunts, our popular Reptile & Amphibian Roadshows and much more.

What’s it all about?

Not far from where you live is a precious heather-clad landscape! Perhaps you already know it, but didn’t realise how rare it is? In the last 200 years, we’ve lost around 84% of the heathland we once had and the remaining fragments are super-special. We’d love you to discover it for yourself, so we’re putting on a whole week of free events to celebrate our heaths, their wildlife and their cultural history.

To whet your appetite, there are amazing nocturnal birds that come all the way from Africa to breed here, rare butterflies you won’t see elsewhere, native lizards & snakes, and so much more. Heathland is wonderful and precious and we all need to play our part in protecting it. Join us for a free activity and discover how.
