Today we were working at Hudswell Woods with the National Trust to help repair some paths. This was great for me as it is local and I could walk straight down there.

This has resulted in a 50% reduction of the population in the area.

Green Futures is part of
Our Bright Future, a £33 million programme funded by the Big Lottery Fund and run by a consortium of eight organisations which is led by The Wildlife Trusts. Our Bright Future aims to tackle three big challenges facing society today – a lack of social cohesion, a lack of opportunities for young people and vulnerability to climate change.
