Grab your wellington boots, zip up your coat and put on your warmest woolly hat as the National Trust are once again going off the beaten track to explore our autumn woodlands, and would love your company. This half-term, the name of the game is fun, so expect scavenger hunts, raft building, jumping in puddles and the chance to get very, very muddy. This is the perfect opportunity for families to explore the outdoors together.
Nick Winsor, Chief Executive Officer, Channel Islands and Isle of Man, said:
‘”The National Trust for Jersey is one of HSBC’s long term community partners. We have worked together for a number of years to inspire the island’s community, including our employees and their families, to explore the outdoors. The Woodland Wanders exemplify this, when families explore the changing season’s together, acquiring knowledge and enthusiasm for our natural environment”.
The National Trust for Jersey President, Celia Jeune commented:
‘Autumn is the perfect time to jump in muddy puddles, kick fallen leaves and to experience everything that natural world has to offer. The Trust is at the forefront of getting children to experience the natural world in Jersey, to provide a rich, stimulating environment for them to learn and play in, it is something we are extremely proud of.”
