Buckingham Town Council have been keeping residents occupied during lockdown by encouraging people to get outside. #WellbeingWednesday is all about being active while enjoying the beauty of Buckingham in Winter! 

The Town Council’s Office Apprentice has been in charge of creating blog posts about exercise apps, walking trails, local history walks with Buxplore, and fun creative outdoor activities from Leaf Art and Willow Crown making to Shadow Tag! All activities can be done in Buckingham’s parks, from dens in Maids Moreton Avenue to Pooh Sticks in Bourton Park. Visit: https://www.buckingham-tc.gov.uk/ to read all of the blog posts.

For activity booklet fans, there is also a Winter Wellness Spotter Sheet available for young children. The weather may be temperamental but encouraging our children to have fun playing outdoors can make a huge difference to their overall wellbeing.

When you download the Spotter Sheet from our website: https://www.buckingham-tc.gov.uk/winter-wellness-spotter-sheet/ we would love to see all your wonderful finds. Make sure to send your photos to us via private message on Facebook, or tag us on your post using #WinterWellness #SpotterSheet @BuckinghamTC for the chance to win a reusable water bottle.

With wellbeing in mind, we also encouraged everyone to take part in the annual Children’s Mental Health Week which took place from Monday 1st February until Sunday 7th February 2021. The theme of the week was ‘Express Yourself’.

Cllr Ruth Newell, Chair of the Environment committee commented, “there are many great ideas and activities to help improve wellbeing, and we have so many lovely green spaces and parks in the Town, it is great seeing them being used and valued to improve wellbeing.”
