Generation Plain 'a great success'
GENERATION Plain is coming to an end and Wiltshire Wildlife Trust is celebrating a very successful project encouraging military and civilian families to connect with each other, and nature.
Project officer Susan Allen said: “Over the past year I’ve run events like workshops, holiday and after school clubs, taster sessions, parties and activities for children and grownups.
“As the year went on, and people found out about all the fun things we were doing, we had more and more families coming along until we were regularly attracted more than 200 people to an event.”
“We encouraged parents to make more use of the beautiful natural environment around them to have fun with their children. It’s fun, it’s free and it’s on their doorstep.”
According to evaluation reports made during the life of the project, Generation Plain successfully engaged with around 3,500 people from the military and civilian communities around Bulford.
