Rest & Reflect
Rest & Reflect – New Opening Times for 2021
From Tuesday 5th January 2021, Rest & Reflect will be open on Monday 9am – 12pm, Tuesday/Friday/Saturday 1-3pm.
It is important that you look after yourself during these challenging times, from getting enough sleep, keeping stress levels down, eating well and exercising outside.
- We are open for free drop-ins, giving you time and space to “be” in a calm, safe environment, whilst relaxing in beautiful natural surroundings.
- Regular exercise has been proven to fight fatigue and boost energy levels, so wrap up warm and visit Lindengate, where you will be able to take time for yourself in our 5 acre therapeutic gardens and wildlife haven.
- Why not bring someone from your household or support bubble, or meet a friend safely for your daily exercise, which can improve your mental wellbeing.
- Whether you are a key worker, or home schooling, we have space for you to bring supervised children and quiet areas for those seeking peace and a safe space.
Whilst we are currently unable to keep all our services open, our free drop-in Rest and Reflect sessions, which have been running since June 2020 and welcomed over 1,500 people, are open to anyone who may be struggling with their wellbeing, or just want a safe space to enjoy nature.
Started as a pilot before lock down, Planted is for 13-15 year olds and is one of the short programmes, running for 6 weeks. Planted will start on Friday 9th October, running every Friday for 6 weeks, between 08.45am – 10am and will focus on one activity each week, ie., self care, resilience, etc., as part of our 5 Ways to Wellbeing.
Healing Pathways is a short programme, bi-weekly over 6 weeks, plus 1 per quarter, rotating courses for adults/young people, using the 5 Ways to Wellbeing and nature to provide hope, support and understanding, for those experiencing loss, grief and bereavement.
Women’s Wellbeing Minority Group
For adults, taking place every month, supporting women from the black, asian, minority and ethnic community, offering a safe and relaxing environment, to build resilience and improve wellbeing.
Our weekly programme, for people with low to moderate mental health needs. We have started the process of enabling people to come back to Lindendate, based on nature based activities in groups.
