  • Walking with Wheels | Mysite

    Stap met wiele Gebruik een van die all-terrain mobiliteit bromponies om toegang te verkry tot die pragtige Bos roetes met jou familie en vriende, ongeag jou stap vermoë. Die Bos van Dean is 'n erkende sentrum vir stap en fietsry en word goed bedien deur roetes en ander toegang tot die oppervlak. Vir mense met fisieke gestremdheid, swak gesondheid, sensoriese gestremdheid of 'n ander inhiberende toestand kan daar egter 'n behoefte wees aan een of ander aangedrewe bystand, gespesialiseerde interpretasie of ander toepaslike media om hulle in staat te stel om die voordele te geniet wat ander as vanselfsprekend aanvaar. Hierdie Bosbouers se Bos Heritage Lottery Befondsde projek, werk saam met Plattelandsmobiliteit bied geleenthede vir meer mense om toegang tot die Forest of Dean te verkry. Walking with Wheels bied all-terrain mobiliteit bromponies (genoem Trampers) te huur van Forest Holidays by Christchurch, en die Speech House Hotel. Die Trampers is beskikbaar vir vooraf-gekarteerde roetes wat die uitsigte van Symonds Yat, die Biblins, die Cyril Hart Arboretum en Mallards Pike Lake inneem om net 'n paar te noem. ​ As jy meer wil leer oor Walking with Wheels, skakel asseblief 01594 822073 of kontak ons per e-pos . ​ Gereelde Vrae Wat is 'n 'Tramper'?

    OUR FOREST EVENTS Community ideas wanted for ‘Our Forest’ £3m lottery bid An opportunity for people and community organisations to discuss project ideas for Our Forest's planned National Lottery Heritage Fund Bid. BOOK TICKETS: Saturday 13th April, Lydney Town Hall - 1pm - 4pm BOOK TICKET: Sunday 14th April, Mitcheldean Community Centre - 1pm - 4pm We’re excited to announce that we are leading on preparing a new £3million bid to the National Heritage Lottery Fund (NLHF). ​ Called ‘Our Forest’ this new community-driven project will focus on the heritage of the Forest of Dean To prepare for this bid, we are asking local people, community groups and organisations to have their say at two community events we are hosting this weekend. ​ Taking place at 1pm-4:30pm on Saturday (13 April) at Lydney Town Hall and 1pm-4:30pm on Sunday (14 April) at Mitcheldean Community Centre , these events are open for anyone to attend, to share and discuss ideas for potential heritage projects, partnerships and collaborations that could be included in the bid for funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF). ​ Deb Cook, our Volunteering Manager at FVAF said “Heritage is what you think is important and should be preserved. It could be about improving access to landscapes, historical sites, or collections; cultural activity or traditions; stories and celebrations as well as more traditional ideas of heritage. It can be anything from the past or even present that you value and want to pass on to future generations. ​ She added: “We’re asking the community to come along to one of these events to be part of the conversation and tell us what they think is important to include in the ‘Our Forest’ project.” ​ Building upon the legacy of the Foresters' Forest Landscape Partnership programme, ‘Our Forest’ will focus on involving diverse people, grass-roots organisations, and the voluntary community sector, with projects that involve young people, older people, hardly reached groups, as well as focusing on mental health and wellbeing.
