Run by the jolly lovely Emma Mitchell in a small medieval village on the edge of the Fens, the Making Winter Retreat was exactly what I needed, when I needed it.
At this time of the year there are many factors that can affect ones mood; shorter daylight hours, rainy weather and the pressures of Christmas looming. It was really lovely to take a weekend out to try some new things and meet some new (and old) friends.
“The aim of the Making Winter Retreat is to use seasonal creativity, good food, good company and cosiness as an antidote to the grey days of Winter.”
Thanks to Emma for leading this walk, highlighting the birds and plants to look out for in Winter and for showing us round her woodland neighbourhood!
