Because some of our events and things to do are held in the wilds of Somerset they include a grid reference as a meeting point - post codes are too imprecise. To see the location for the activity on a map go to Street Map and type in the grid reference (e.g. ST456437 no spaces.) If you zoom out you will first see the OS Explorer and Landranger maps which have more detail and then larger scale maps. Go to Street Map now.
The remaining works are being offered for sale at greatly reduced prices, the proceeds of which are being donated to the museum and to Somerset Wildlife Trust, much beloved by Peter. Don’t miss the chance to own an original painting from a much-loved and respected local artist!
Have you signed up to 30 Days Wild, to challenge yourself to do something Wild every day in June? There’s still time to sign up, and even if you have already, perhaps your friends, families or collages might like to join in too?
Your daily acts of wildness could be anything from star gazing, eating your lunch outside on the grass instead of at your desk, building a bug house or enjoying birdsong in a meadow – your acts of wildness are completely up to you. Plus when signing up you get a pack which includes a wallchart, a poster, an interactive booklet and some stickers to help you go wild, just select who is taking part and take the next step – click here to sign up http://action.wildlifetrusts.org/page/20877/petition/1
