Bank Holiday nature TrailMonday 2nd May is May Day Bank Holiday in the UK in 2022.

This is generally celebrated on the first Monday after 1st May to give us a long weekend to rest and recuperate. In 2020 it was moved to commemorate VE Day.

Children and off school and the banks are closed to celebrate May Day on the first weekday of the month,

This is a great day for children (and adults) to enjoy nature.

Why not take the children to a National Trust property, local park or a nature reserve, or to your local woodlands for some fun in the fresh air.

One way for adults to enjoy some therapeutic time in nature this month is to book for a Forest Bathing Session. 

We have Surrey Forest Bathing events on Monday 9th May @ Cannon Hill Common (SW20), Sunday 15th May at Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary, Shere (event themed on nature angels), and Sunday 22nd May Bluebell Session at Harry Edwards (Shere near Guildford). Cost is £35 for three hours of sensory mindfulness and relaxation in stunning and tranquil woodland, plus an admin fee if not paid by BACS - themed events, such as 15th May, cost extra.
