2024 marks the 75th anniversary of the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1949. An act which secured access for everyone to open countryside whilst preserving and enhancing natural beauty; founded on the understanding that connection with nature is essential to the health of people, society and the planet. This truly visionary legislation has had a vast and lasting impact on our relationship with the natural environment across the UK and is an achievement we must celebrate and not take for granted.

We are Campaign for National Parks, the only independent charity dedicated to securing the future of National Parks in England and Wales.
RSPCA 200th Anniversary!
**200 years of change**
RSPCA Animal Advice Team
ParksideChart Way Horsham West Sussex  RH12 1GY

Here’s to 200 years of the RSPCA. Back in 1824, the world was a very different place for animals. With your help, we’ve spent the last two centuries on a mission to change it for the better. Let’s keep going.

Two hundred years ago, a group of people met in a London coffee shop, determined to change animals’ lives for the better. That goal has been the beating heart of the RSPCA ever since.

The first-ever law protecting animals was the Cruel Treatment of Cattle Act of 1822. It’s often called Martin’s Act, after Richard Martin who helped get the law passed. He was one of 22 people who went on to meet at Old Slaughter’s Coffee House, St Martin’s Lane , on 16 June 1824. 

With him was the Reverend Arthur Broome, credited as our founder, and anti-slave trade campaigner William Wilberforce. By forming what became the RSPCA, they prompted a vital social shift in how people thought about animals. 

Read RSPCA's fascinating history and see timeline. SO Inspiring!

In two centuries, we’ve improved millions of animals’ lives by changing laws, industries and minds. Ours is a rich history, but we’re not just reflecting on the past. As the world changes and the threats facing animals mount, the RSPCA must rise to meet them. The times we're living through — climate change, factory farming, wars, and a cost-of-living crisis — demand an urgent response.

The animal who changed me.
To celebrate the amazing role animals play in our lives we’re calling on you to share a story of an animal who has changed your life in some way. They could be a loyal pet, wildlife who visit your garden, or even an animal from your favourite TV programme. Whoever they are, shine a light on them! Share their story with us on Facebook, X, Instagram and TikTok and let us know how they’ve changed you.

Come face to face with species at risk of extinction as well as those we’ve brought back from the brink. See first-hand how human activities, both good and bad, are shaping the natural world we rely on.

Have you ever wondered how a photography competition with almost 40,000 entries is judged? Or how wildlife photography can be used to make a difference to the natural world?

Get the answers to all your questions and have in-depth discussions about the award-winning images as you enjoy the quiet gallery in this engaging, 45-minute experience.  We'll introduce you to some of this year's surprising and poignant stories, as well as the impact that these photos have had on conservation efforts around the world.

Deepen Your Nature Connection
Tutor: Alistair Duncan

Woods Mill Nature Reserve, Henfield, BN5 9SD

What is Nature Connection?  We can experience the natural world in so many ways. We can learn to identify the creatures and plants that we encounter, we can become familiar with their habits and ways. Or, sometimes, nature will stop us in our tracks with a moment of sublime wonder.

But is it possible to go beyond these and know a deeper nature connection? An experience of more subtle awareness and relationship with the natural world.

This workshop will introduce you to delightful practices that will heighten and enrich your experience of your place in the natural world. You’ll gain a deeper sensitivity and awareness of the presence of everything around you. And a greater feeling of connection to all that is happening around you.

The Sussex Wildlife Trust was formed in 1961, and is now the largest conservation organisation dedicated to conserving the natural heritage of Sussex. One of the most wooded counties in the UK, Sussex is a splendid county with a rich history, w/ dramatic coastline, grazing marshes, glorious chalk hills of the South Downs and internationally rare heathland.

Protect Earth
The Importance of National Parks to the UK
 By Eoghan McHugh

Email    [email protected]        Phone +44 (0) 300 302 0065‬

Across the four areas of the United Kingdom, there are 15 national parks - two in Scotland, three in Wales, and nine in England. All but five, so ten, national parks were created during the 1950s!

National parks and the space they protect offer huge upsides for developing and maintaining the all-important biodiversity that green spaces need to deliver on their potential to stand up to climate change.

Protect Earth is a registered charity in England and Wales. Our purpose is simple: we aim to plant, and help people plant, as many trees as possible in the UK to help mitigate the climate crisis. Protect Earth works with landowners, environmental organisations, and the general public to achieve an outcome that is beneficial for everyone. We help landowners plant trees on their land, and we buy degraded farmland to reforest ourselves. Learn much more at

They must be fit and able to work in the rugged environment and extremes of weather, and competent in first aid and casualty care, and frequently travel long distances to assist teams outside their own region. UK Mountain rescue teams work under the auspices of the police and are called out through the 999 system.If you think you need mountain rescue, you should call dial 999 and ask for 'Mountain Rescue'. Our downloadable fact sheet, 'How the call out system works' explains what happens next.

Derwent Water is situated in the Lake District in the north-west of England, just south of Keswick. It ranks as the third-largest lake by area in the region, trailing behind Windermere and Ullswater. The lake spans 2.9 miles in length, reaches up to 1.19 miles in width, and covers an area of 2.1 square miles. The River Derwent, which serves as both the primary inflow and outflow, passes through Bassenthwaite Lake before emptying into the Irish Sea at Workington. Within the lake lie several islands, one of which is occupied.

The area around Derwent Water is renowned for its picturesque scenery. It is encircled by hills, and many slopes overlooking the lake are densely forested. Wet woodland fringed by reed beds are home to a variety of woodland and lake shore birds.

Come and help us tackle Himalayan Balsam at Boathouse Field, a nature reserve on the shores of Derwent Water.

Hillside Animal Sanctuary

Hillside Animal Sanctuary Hall Lane  Frettenham   Norwich    NR12 7LT    UK   Telephone: 01603 736200 

Since founding Redwings Horse Sanctuary in 1984, Wendy Valentine's name has been synonymous with care and Horse welfare concern for horses.
In 1995, Wendy formed Hillside Animal Sanctuary after witnessing the plight of the battery hen and has since helped and campaignedfor animals in need, particularly those who are so routinely abused in the intensive factory farming industry.

Hillside is now home to over 4000 animals and is oneof the UK's most successful campaigning organisations for the animals' cause. We have always known that one of the main reasons animals are left to suffer in factory farms is because people have little or no idea about the immense cruelty involved in their food production. Although most of our rescued animals have been saved from the farming industry, Hillside is home to over 2500 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules.

We have volunteer days where people come up and help do jobs around the sanctuary, feeding the animals and many other tasks. Currently we have two volunteer work days on the 2nd and last Saturdays of the month. This works well for us as the people involved organise the group and the visit themselves.

Tel: 01202 287808

The Bourne Free Pride takes place over the weekend 5th and 6th July 2024.

Bourne Free was originally set up in 2004 when a far right organisation was due to come to Bournemouth and preach that homosexuality was wrong. Many prominent figures and active members of the gay communities in the area came together to organise an event in the Lower Gardens to protect the gay communities from the bigots and keep them together for a day of celebration, rather than of hostility.

Saturday, starting at 11am, with entertainment in the Triangle from 9-11am. This worked so incredibly well as we managed to get so many people taking part with music, bubble machines, flags and so much more. It was a true walking rainbow of Pride.

The town sits beside Loch Leven, the largest loch of the Scottish Lowlands. Declared a nature reserve in 1964, the loch attracts around 20,000 pink-footed geese every autumn. Sitting peacefully on an islet within the loch itself is the enchanting Lochleven Castle. Between April and September you can take the small ferry to the castle which gained infamy when it acted as a prison to Mary Queen of Scots in 1567. Her dramatic escape by boat is one of Scotland's most romantic tales.

**See our Harry Potter page where you can read about the very kind J.K. Rowling who adopted "Sapphire," a beautiful, loving greyhound.

We are currently looking for both cat and dog foster carers. All vet’s bills, food and litter are covered by us. All we need is your time and compassion. Every day we have several calls from people finding kittens, or people finding litters in their garden and asking us to pick them up. We usually have a lot of cats and kittens in our care, with only a handful of foster caretakers.

County Laois is a county in Ireland. It is part of the Midlands Region and is also located in the province of Leinster, and was formerly known as Queen's County. The modern county takes its name from Loígis, a medieval kingdom. Once again, thanks to all who contribute to our Society.  We are a voluntary organisation and every cent raised goes towards the sick, stray and abandoned animals in Co. Laois.
