CPRE Wiltshire - The countryside charityFollow582267
Regenerate the Wiltshire countryside by sticking to Public Right of Ways on your walks, and do not picnic or exercise on private land. You will find hundreds of footpaths and bridleways to walk along, and we can all play our part in using these spaces well.
It is the time of year where there are lots of beautiful things to spot whilst out on your family walks. We have put together a few ideas for things to look out for, and this week's theme is "Winter Nuts And Berries". How many of these can you spot whilst you are out and about?
Hedgehogs are busy preparing for hibernation at this time of year. Make your space hog-friendly by leaving a through route and leave fallen apples and leaves so they can forage for bugs easily.

As the Summer colours start to fade, now is the perfect time to prepare for Spring flowers. Choose some beautiful bulbs to plant in your borders, pots or hanging baskets to give you a lovely display of colour in Spring.
For the duration of this five week campaign we will be sending out weekly newsletters giving you information about the countryside in your area, and what you can do to help in its regeneration. Sign up here: https://cpre.pinkskydesign.com/Wiltshire
Connecting with nature and the countryside nourishes us. It refreshes us. It regenerates us. It makes us feel more alive. Now the countryside needs us to do our bit in return.

Historic England gives the history of the game in this interesting article...

Blackberry Jam making time, make the most of the last few days of picking the fruit.
