Watchtree Nature Reserve received funding in 2019 from The National lottery – The People’s Project.

On receiving the funding, Watchtree set about creating our education services. Since then, we have worked hard to plan and create the provision that Watchtree’s education services provides.

Various schools and groups as well as the general public have continually used the reserve for self-led sessions and we now have pre-planned sessions led by Watchtree staff that cater for children of all ages and work with school curriculum requirements. Visiting groups are still very welcome to use the reserve for self-led sessions.

The safe yet spacious environment of the nature reserve at Watchtree is ideal to support well-being, improve mental health and we are continuing work with the local community and NHS services to support social prescribing.
