Virtual Halloween Storytelling for Kids

Virtual Halloween Storytelling for Kids

1:30pm on 29th October
Online via Facebook Live

Join us this Halloween for some slightly scary tales and spooky fables with storyteller Janice Witherspoon via Facebook Live online.

Janice loves to tell tales, especially those which encourage children to join in and enjoy the unique magic of listening to a good story, well told.

Simply log in to our Facebook page at 1:30pm on 29 October to watch. Janice will tell not so scary tales for little ones for the first 25 minutes then slightly scary stories for older kids after.

Tree and Tide Benone Beach Walk

Tree and Tide Benone Beach Walk

Friday 20 November at Benone Beach
10am - 11am
£10 per person

We all know that being outdoors does us good but now there is a wealth of science to back up the mental health benefits of being outside. Join Deborah Mullan, a local Counsellor/Psychotherapist for an experience of nature that leaves you still in mind and steady in heart.

Join us down at Benone Beach as we learn how to slow down, be present to ourselves and nature and learn how to manage our stress and anxiety better. We’ll explore the beach and rocks together and engage creatively with what the beach has to offer. You’ll leave refreshed, energised and with some simple tools to help you in every day life.

Please note that this activity will be going ahead unless there are weather warnings so rain jackets are a must! Meet at the entrance to the beach.
