Alive Activities are launching 2 new ‘Well-being in Nature’ sessions at Stanley’s Community Garden in Worle, Weston-super-Mare, from Tuesday 7 May 2024.

The Well-being in Nature sessions provide the opportunity to experience the countless benefits that a greater connection with nature can offer, as well as the chance to meet others and even make new friends within a safe and supportive group environment.

Connecting with nature has been shown to: help to enhance our mental health and emotional well-being; have a soothing effect on our senses; improve concentration levels, memory recall and problem-solving skills; plus release tension held in our muscles and joints. The natural world really does possess the amazing potential to have a positive impact on our bodies and minds and enhance the quality of our lives.

  • The morning session  (10.30am – 12pm) welcomes people (55+) who are living within the community and who are experiencing mild cognitive impairment and/or have received a recent dementia diagnosis, together with their relatives, friends, carers.
  • The afternoon session (2-4pm) welcomes people (55+) who are living within the community and who are experiencing ongoing challenges with their mental health, e.g., stress, anxiety, low mood, loneliness.

Both sessions are free and refreshments will be provided. Stanley’s Garden offers a covered area for shelter if needed, as well as access to toilet facilities nearby. No specific outdoor/gardening skills or experience is required.
