Get active in nature this summer

Wednesday 22 July 2020

Families looking to venture out into nature this summer are in luck thanks to the Naturally Active booklet produced by Kensington and Chelsea Council and Westminster City Council as part of our local Change4Life programme.

Cllr Josh Rendall, Kensington and Chelsea Council’s Lead Member for Family and Children's Services, said: “The Coronavirus lockdown caused many families to not be as active as they would like, so it’s more important than ever for safe and fun activities to get us moving again. I hope local people enjoy rediscovering some of the beautiful parks, outdoor sport facilities and nature spots that we are blessed to have in around the borough this summer.”

The booklet features activities that children and families can do safely in their own time in and around their local green spaces. You’re bound to feel closer to nature after giving some of these fun activities a go, whether you choose to organise your own treasure hunt or create a hanging sculpture made from twigs, stones, acorns and other natural decorations you can find.

Booklets were sent to local schools before the end of term but if you weren’t able to get one you can find printed versions in libraries and community centres and digital versions on the Council website. Have a Naturally Active summer!
