Weston Park’s 1,000 acres of parkland encompass a history dating back to the medieval period and an important Capability Brown commission, in addition to playing host to impressive biodiversity.
Join Head Gardener Martin Gee and the attraction’s knowledgeable team to discover more of the exceptional landscape at this seasonal park walk.
Discover the park’s seasonal beauty and see areas of the park that are not normally seen by visitors, such as the Medieval layers of the park’s history and the surviving moat which is now home to invertebrates.
The walk takes place this Sunday, from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
Thursday, November 3rd, marks one year of Wellbeing walks at Baggeridge Country Park.
In celebration we are inviting walkers to come along, enjoy a walk around the park from 10-11am, followed by complimentary tea, coffee and cakes after the walk at Baggeridge Tea Room
Flu vaccination: who should have it this winter and why
Flu can affect anyone but if you have a long-term health condition the effects of fu can make it worse even if the condition is well managed and you normally feel well.
Anyone with a health condition should consider having the vaccination, plus a range of others, including those aged 65 or over, those living in residential or nursing homes, those who are pregnant, and children of a certain age.
There are small things we can all do to help be kind to our mind and these can make a big difference to how we feel.
That’s why a new Better Health – Every Mind Matters campaign is being launched, helping us find those little things we can all do to look after our mental health and showing us how they can add up to make a big difference; helping us to lead happier, healthier lives and cope with life’s challenges.
At its heart is the free, NHS-approved Mind Plan, available on the website. By answering five short questions people get a personalised mental health action plan, providing practical tips to help them deal with stress and anxiety, boost their mood, sleep better and feel more in control.
£2,000 in government funding available to help with childcare costs
Families could save up to £2,000 a year towards their childcare costs to help pay for October half-term holiday clubs and wraparound care during the school terms.
Families can sign up to Tax-Free Childcare to help pay for holiday clubs, before and after-school clubs, childminders and nurseries, and other approved childcare schemes. It is available to families with children up to the age of 11, or 17 if their child has a disability.
The government will pay 20% of childcare costs by topping up the money paid into a Tax-Free Childcare account. This means for every £8 paid into the online account, families will automatically receive an additional £2 in government top-up.
