With special guest Helen Stroudley from @peeplecentre
The brilliant Helen Stroudley joined Nigel to talk about why playing outdoors is so important! It has a great positive impact on our health and happiness – and does the same for our children. Whether you just get out for a walk or plan a full outside day – Helen tells us why we need to make the most of being outdoors.
Helen also tells us how to be best prepared for getting outdoors, so that there is no stress when we’re there. From simply packing extra clothes, to wearing wellies for jumping in puddles!
