Celebrate the Easter Bank Holiday safely

May you be blessed with love and peace this Easter

This year even though things are improving they're still not back to normal. So we need to think about doing things differently for just a bit longer.

The most important thing is staying safe, looking after each other and helping to keep infection rates down.

We’ve come up a webpage with few stay at home and a few stay safe activities for this Bank Holiday weekend.

Get out in your garden

Our gardens team have suggested some great family friendly activities for the Easter weekend. Ideas for the sunny and not so sunny days that will keep even the smallest green fingers busy. 

Happy Easter


With so much green space on offer in our district there’s always somewhere new to explore. Try to avoid the crowds this Easter and head somewhere new, you might be surprised by all the places you’ve not been and how diverse the offer is on our district.

We are lucky enough to have everything from wild moorland that will blow the cobwebs away to stunning woodland that offer a different view around every corner.
