A THREE-YEAR project to engage people across East Durham in woodland activities is to come to an end.

The Visit Woods East Durham Outreach Project, run by the Woodland Trust, has helped transform the lives of more than 5,000 people with a range of health and wellbeing events.

The £1.2million national campaign, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, encouraged people in communities to get out and make the most of their local woods by holding structured events. Outreach Officer Chris Affleck said: “Woods are an incredibly powerful tool in developing social and emotional skills.”
