Nature on Your Doorstep


A BLACKSMITH demonstration, talks by local authors and family fun are set to feature in the free Nature on Your Doorstep event at The Courtenay Centre, Newton Abbot, on Saturday June 22.

More than 30 organisations will be taking part including Dartmoor National Park Authority, The Environment Agency and the town’s Allotment Association.

All will be offering information about green projects in the district with tips on how to help nature in local neighbourhoods.

Youngsters can create their own nature-themed crafts to take away and enjoy other free family fun activities.

The day is being staged as part of the ACT with the Arts Climate Change Festival.

Spokesperson Emily Farrell from Newton Abbot CIC said: ‘Alongside local groups including Action on Climate in Teignbridge, Newton Abbot Seed Bank and the Newton Abbot Allotment Association, the event will welcome bigger organisations including the Environment Agency and Dartmoor National Park Authority.

'The stalls will offer information about current projects and activities, as well as an opportunity for you to find out how you can get involved and make a difference in your local community.

‘Although booking is not required for general admission, we will also be offering a programme of free speakers and workshops which must be booked.

‘These are for people of all ages and sessions on offer will include local children’s authors, yoga tasters and speakers talking about everything from wild swimming to bush craft.

‘We look forward to welcoming everyone.’

Nature on Your Doorstep will take place at the Courtenay Centre on Saturday 22nd June from 11.00am – 3.00pm

Hot and cold drinks, nature themed snacks and lunches will be on sale.

The Centre’s car park will be taken up with outdoor demonstrations meaning visitors are encouraged to arrive on foot or bike.
