MindSCAPE is now in its fourth and final year of BIG Lottery funding. We are putting on a FREE daylong conference event to celebrate the project and pass on the knowledge we’ve gained through its development and delivery. The conference event will take place on Thursday October 5th 2017 in the fabulous setting of the Lindors Country House Hotel, in the Wye Valley AONB near St Briavels.
The morning of the event will be made up of a number of talks including the mindSCAPE project and how it has linked with local dementia and training and education strategies. In the afternoon attendees will get first-hand experience of mindSCAPE type artistic activities through a series of workshops.
The day will appeal to people keen to understand more about the mindSCAPE project and how landscape can benefit health and wellbeing, and/or who are considering developing similar projects. There will be plenty of opportunity for networking and quizzing us about our project.
We are currently putting together a programme of speakers and activities and will release details soon. Spaces on the day will be limited and booking is now open. To book your place please call Sharon Seymour on 01600 713977 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information click here
A partnership between the AONB Unit, Ross-on-Wye Town Council and Natural England have started tree management work on the banks of the Wye where it passes through Ross, to benefit biodiversity and create river views.
