What we'll do
You are never to old to walk through the trees and enjoy dappled sunlight on your face or listen to the call of birds of prey as they swoop through the forest. Evergreen Elders is for people living with dementia (early to mid stages) people who have retired and for anyone over the age of 55 who has a passion for enjoying the great outdoors. Carers are welcome too. When you arrive on-site, we will walk down to base camp, listen to a safety briefing and enjoy a hot drink around the fire. There will be a range of different activities on offer each week, including, willow weaving, natural crafts , cooking, singing songs and enjoying the natural environment. Please note Evergreen Elders funded by Defra will only take place at Admiral Woods so participants can learn about and enjoy the serenity of a woodland setting - 1 funded session per group.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
