Go outdoors with St Helens’ Ranger Service this winter

There’s no end to the benefits of getting outdoors, which our Ranger Service knows very well.

A good walk done regularly can lead to significant improvements to your physical health and mental wellbeing.

And you could help care for our cherished green spaces, if you can spare a little time and elbow grease.

There are opportunities for both with our Rangers, as they’re hosting a series of health walks and litter picks over November and December.

And don’t forget to book on to the Rangers’ Winter Bird Walk at Siding Lane Local Nature Reserve on Sunday 22 December.
