#BLOGMAS Day 22 – Our Fake Christmas Day

Growing up I always spent Christmas Day at my Mum’s house. My grandparents piled round and it was always a really chilled festive day.

I think Go Ape is a really …

Is there a local area near you that needs some TLC? Why not organise a community group to tidy it up? Alternatively, persuade your local Council to allow you to create a community orchard in your area. Could you offer to volunteer within a local school to encourage children to care for the natural environment? Whaaaat?!?! Ok so I highly …
