Our local environment – a new experience
Author: 23rd May 2020
Clean air, clear skies and long views. Time now to stand and stare and reflect on what we lost when the roads filled up with the roar of traffic and the skies with never ending vapour trails. Now in their place the chorus of birdsong has brought joy to our ears. With those holidays deleted from our diaries a chance to explore the richness of our local environment, the cycle rides bordered by cow parsley and May blossom, walks lined with buttercups and cowslips, stopping to look at local features we had previously rushed past.
Time to rethink how to use our leisure time in future with a shift from global to local in our travel plans.
