People Enjoying Nature Sessions Autumn/Winter 2021 - 2022

Need some motivation to get outdoors as the weather becomes colder and the days slightly darker? Come and join us for a number of opportunities to spend time in the Pendle Hill landscape over August and September 2021. All sessions are free of charge, and available for everyone! PEN sessions aim to offer supported sessions out in the landscape, at different sites and areas. All sessions will be delivered in a Covid safe way, which means that changes may have to be made throughout the programme if restrictions are tightened or guidance changes.

Booking is essential for all of the sessions detailed below. For more information and to book on to sessions please email jayne.ashe@lancashire.gov.uk or call Jayne on 07770 273 643

Thursday Nature Activity Sessions

On Thursdays (or occassionally Fridays), PEN sessions take more of a nature and heritage focus. Most sessions also involve a short walk, but there is also other activity on offer as well. Sessions start at 11.30am, and last approx. 3 hours. Free transport is available! All equipment, materials and tools are provided free of charge, but we encourage participants to wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear. As we get ready for winter, some of the upcoming PEN sessions may take place predominantly indoors.
