The story behind Picnic in the Parks

Picnic in the Parks began in 2017 as a park based event delivered by Stepping into NatureActive Dorset and Natural Choices working with the local town council and community organisations.

Unfortunately as Covid-19 came along, the events had to be cancelled.  It was however more important than ever that we find ways to live well and love nature for our health and happiness so, whilst we couldn’t run such as large and interactive event, we turned to a new virtual way of promoting these opportunities.
