Adventures in the park and at home

Families are being encouraged to embrace the great outdoors, explore the rich heritage of Stanmer Park and take part in a range of nature themed activities this half term.

As part of the Stanmer Restoration Project, Brighton & Hove City Council has put together a Family Learning Resource Pack, full of ideas and activities for a fun half term.

The scheme is being funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of the Stanmer Restoration Project..

Whether you’re at home or in your local park, there’s a range of activities to encourage families to embrace the outdoors and put nature centre stage. Why not make an apple bird feeder or salt dough sheep, start a nature journal or create a collage from autumn leaves collected on your woodland walk?

Hollingdean and Stanmer ward councillor Martin Osbourne said: “We hope families across the city will find our new Family Learning Pack useful and enjoy taking part in some of the suggested activities, all designed to make learning fun and relaxed.”

He added that, over the next few years, council officers will continue to develop the Family Learning Resource Pack and will be working with schools to explore the stories, the rich heritage of Stanmer and its rich landscape.
