Stay Connected: Our Dementia Walks newsletter

18 May 2020

Our dementia friendly walks in Bolton with the Woodland Trust are currently on hold due to Covid19. To help people stay connected we have created a newsletter for the members of our walking group, which is also available for anyone who is living with dementia and their friends and families. 

What is it?

A fortnightly email newsletter to bring a bit of nature into the home and a crafty activity to keep minds busy – most importantly we want to keep up the fun and social contact we enjoy so much on our walks. 


What is involved?

Each fortnight we will have a different themed newsletter to keep people connected to the outdoors and to our favourite places on the walks around the Smithills Estate, Bolton. We will keep you up to date with nature news & sightings from the Smithills Estate including superb videos from Russ Headley about what birds to identify in your garden, plus photos from our volunteers.

People can also join in our online activity videos showing how to create great craft items to keep our minds bright and busy. Including outdoor sound maps, leaf art, bee origami, bird feeders and more!

These newsletter are for anyone who is living with dementia and their friends and families - not just people who attended the wallks. 


How do I sign up?
