Walk In The Woodlands – A Health And Wellbeing Initiative
A walk in the woods is one of the best ways to improve and maintain physical and mental health. The Health and Wellbeing team at RNN Group recently arranged a Staff Wellness Walk at Dearne Valley College where staff from all campuses gathered to explore the woodlands and learn about how the wildlife ecosystem works. Dearne Valley College boasts a 12-acre woodland that is managed by the staff and students in the land-based courses.
Andrew Davies is the Countryside Management and Animal Care Lecturer at Dearne Valley College, he elaborated the different ways to take care of the lands enriching the environment with different kinds of trees and animals. Dearne Valley College is a certified Hedgehog friendly campus and the staff is making an extraordinary effort to enrich the woodlands with diverse flora and fauna.
The staff wellness walk lasted about an hour and was received as a refreshing initiative for the staff health and wellbeing.
