Nature4All – Enjoy the fresh air, the seasons and feel happy

The Nature4All project, funded by the Green Recovery Challenge Fund is all about connecting people to nature, developing, and preserving the environment, biodiversity, and wildlife conservation.

Thanks to National Lottery players, this popular project has been supported by 86 volunteers aged 14-84, learning new skills and completing 143 volunteer sessions. Over 7580 work hours were put in with a value of £75,850 (@£10 per hour).

Our aim is to get people relaxing in many different nature spaces, to enjoy the fresh air, the seasons and to feel happy. Our secure, nine-acre site is accessible and there are many opportunities to engage with wildlife and animals. This provides an amazing setting for learning outdoors, communication, family days out and having fun.

We have two more days open for the community every week, Wild Walk and Nature Play on Saturdays and Park and Play on Tuesdays.

Covid-19 recovery to improve health and wellbeing for the over 65s

As part of Covid-19 recovery we offer free places for people aged 65+ and carers through our Nature Connections project to improve health and wellbeing. These offer opportunities to meet others though going for a walk, joining in an outdoor activity, and in some indoor activities such as crafts and music.

We also hold the dementia friendly badge and offer bespoke visits to organisations, care homes and charities that support older people.

Volunteer Grounds Work Skill Opportunities for the 16+

There is new grounds work undertaken here by volunteers age 16+ who learn skills and benefit from working together. This includes a new gardening area with a tree and plant nursery and a community forest area. We are developing a new raised bed gardening facility for adults, people with learning difficulties, volunteers, and all our children’s groups.

Grounds work is developing sustainable features such as rain-water collection and composting. We run regular community volunteering and offer corporate and large group volunteering as well as volunteer projects for adults with special educational needs and poor mental health.

There is a sense of positivity, warmth, achievement, and togetherness generated through our newly funded activities. Everyone is welcome…. all abilities, interests, and backgrounds.

- Elizabeth Birch, Cheltenham Ladies College Guild.

Thank you for letting us do all the activities and have fun. I liked doing the peg trail and tree climbing. I want to go again because it was so good.

- Sophie (Aged 6).

The Orb was ideal for all our needs with space for the 15 of us to eat together, perfect for group activities and families. I think we would struggle to beat it on quality and value for money.

- Max Woollard from Cheshire.

Volunteering at The Kingswood Trust makes me feel valued and confident. It was great fun, giving the pets their breakfast and discovering freshly laid eggs in the chicken coop. Thank you for such an amazing opportunity.

- Juliet (Aged 12).

My favourite activities were the rope course, the midnight walk and the air raid shelters. Thank you for letting us stay for a night and meet the animals. You looked after us so well.

- Johnnie (Aged 7).

The Kingswood Trust is a great place to visit and volunteer. Working at the Trust has helped me become more confident and now I am now in full time work

- Stuart Bickerton from Telford.

Thank you for looking after my children at The Kingswood Trust Holiday Club. They have both thoroughly enjoyed their adventures, nature based and fun outdoor activities and arrive home happy and tired, ready for a good night’s sleep.

- Simon Briscoe from Wolverhampton.

The Kingswood Trust charity is a place where there are no limits to learning and no boundaries to the imagination.

- Rachel Wells - Head Teacher and Charity Manager, The Kingswood Trust.

I loved the zipline and feeding the rabbits. My most favourite time was when we ate our roast dinner and then went to the play area. I have been begging Miss Mason to come back soon and I hope we will.

- Rukudzo (Aged 7).
