So with 2020 in full swing and summer just around the corner, there is a bright side with a glimmer of light coming through the tunnel. Summer is still coming!
Lots of us have been exploring and finding hidden gems and places of natural beauty right on our own doorsteps recently. There’s just so much to enjoy in nature and it really boosts an improved sense of overall health and wellbeing.
As a volunteer in a local wildlife centre, I have been grateful to be able to resume some of my responsibilities recently and had the pleasure of releasing some well cared for rabbits back into their natural wild habitat. I can’t even begin to explain the delight as I watched them run off into the distance with a hop, skip and a jump thrown in for good measure. I have also been nurturing some hedgehogs back to wellbeing, making them feel safe and secure which makes them a lot less prickly to deal with.
But … you don’t even need to leave the house to visit us at our new and recently improved home. You can pick and choose from any of the free resources from finance, marketing, software, exclusive special offers, training, events, publications and more.
