Lost for Christmas gift ideas?

Black Park Shed craft sale

Don’t miss the amazing Black Park Shed craft stall every Thursday 11-2pm until 21st December. The craft sale is next to the main café at Black Park Country Park. A great way to shop for some Christmas presents at the same time as supporting your community charity. Black Park Shed is a community space for people to connect, converse and create.

You could also consider a gift to increase their wildlife observation and bring them closer to nature with an annual subscription to the RSPB or oin your local wildlife Trust such as London Wildlife Trust, Herts and Middx Wildlife Trust, and Berks Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trusts.

We love the annual family pass to the Chiltern Open Air Museum with prices starting at £55 or an experience to the Batchworth Lock canal centre with a boat trip along the canal?

The annual £66 parking pass for the Buckinghamshire Country Parks (Black Park, Langley Park, Thorney Country Park and Denham Country Park) is a great way to encourage more days out. Take a look at our  “places to go page” for more ideas on how you can plan ahead to make the most of 2024 by keeping outdoor active.
