We’re very excited to announce that #thewoodlandproject by Vert Woods’ own Circle of Life Rediscovery is in the running to win almost fifty thousand pounds through The People’s Projects!
The Woodland Project in East Sussex offers days out in nature for families who have a child with a severe physical or learning disability, families who have a child experiencing mental health issues and 11-18 year olds who are accessing mental health services. The Woodland Project allows these families to spend quality time together, relax in their natural surroundings, free of distractions and judgement.
Run by Circle of Life Rediscovery and Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, the project is funded solely through donations and external funding.
The recipient is decided by a public vote so every vote received is vital! Please vote for us here and don’t forget to share our posts on Facebook and Twitter!
Come hear stories and music in the trees of Vert Woods around a big fire!
Circle of Life Rediscovery (CLR) and Vert Woods Community Woodlands (VWCW) invite you for an afternoon of magic, music, stories, and fun, deep in the beautiful Vert Woods near Laughton. Suitable for children of all ages.
Please follow the signs along Park Lane, and you will be lured by musicians and escorted pixies to meet the trees. Once there you will be met with a roaring fire, mulled wine and music. Our chief storyteller Andreas will recount stories of the great oaks, slender birches and abundant sweet chestnuts of Vert Wood, accompanied by various musicians. What do trees really think? It’s your chance to discover this.
Music, mulled wine and dancing will follow.
Please note that the ground underfoot may be muddy or uneven. Bring folding chairs if you think you will want them. There will be cover in the event of bad weather but wrap up.
Bring nibbles and drinks to share.
Booking is important, as only those who sign up can know the secret way! And please let us know how many people will be coming – children count too!
Please consider your impact on the climate as well as the local environment when planning your journey – try to walk or cycle here if you can, share cars with friends or consider offering or accepting a lift on a carsharing website like LiftShare, and follow the parking notices provided on the day. If you do purchase a car ticket please print out the QR code from the email confirmation and display it in your windscreen.
