We organise some of the things within our HE group, so we have art workshops run by a lovely lady with a passion for mixed media art, a civil war workshop coming up with a local re-enactment group, museum workshops etc.
We also look out for things run by local charities, such as the Coast and Countryside trust, Devon Wildlife Trust, etc. They have a huge range of events each year, everything from pond dipping and junior rangers, to cooking from nature at a local organic farm. We recently got in touch with the Shark Trust who have a base near us and they asked if we would like to take part in a mermaid purse survey. It’s amazing the opportunities that can be organised or found. Check out the local council websites as they often have an events page - or search for ‘things to do in .... *your location*’ on the internet and you will often find a local events diary.
