Hope Springs   At the Beacon

3–9 August 2020 (Mon–Sun)

A summer family week looking at the amazing actions you can take to change the way we think and act when it comes to our beautiful planet. This week will be all about practical engagement: from making nest boxes for birds through to finding out the ten most amazing things you can do as families to change the world for the better! We will be joined by award winning writer and broadcaster Dominic Couzens.

You will be staying in our newly refurbished Beacon Centre which has a range of rooms, most with bunk beds. Stay in the main house instead…
