The UK is full of rich and diverse woodlands perfect for exploring with little ones and reconnecting with nature. Woodlands are a vital part of our ecosystem where a huge variety of plants, shrubs and trees grow and provide homes and food for creatures of all shapes and sizes; they’re home to thousands of species including insects, birds, amphibians, mammals, fungi, mosses and lichens.
When you think of Christmas Day, what comes to mind? A mammoth roast turkey with all the trimmings, presents galore scattered beneath the tree, an afternoon nap in front of the TV or a reunion with your family (war over a game of Monopoly is optional)?
Family time tends to be at the forefront of our minds during the festive season, more so than at any other time of the year, but it might surprise you to learn that 1.5 million British adults only see their immediate family once a year – on Christmas Day.
