Have your say and win a free personalised activity at the Wilderness

If you have volunteered or attended an event or activity at the The Wild Cat Wilderness we want to find out a bit more about what you think about your community project and a bit more about you. This will help us plan for the future and feedback to our funders. As part of this evaluation, we are asking you to complete an online questionnaire. Your answers will help us understand the benefits people experience from coming to the Wild Cat Wilderness so we can help more people to take part in future.

Taking part is voluntary and you do not have to answer the questions if you do not want to. We also ask about your mental and physical health so we can find out a bit more about the health of our community and see if coming to the Wilderness can help make a difference. If you can’t answer a question just leave it and go onto the next question but any quotes you can give us would be great and we won’t use your personal details.

If you would like to take part in the draw to win a free personalised 2 hour activity for you, your family and friends (x10 max) at the Wilderness then fill in your email address at the end. You could maybe have a wild birthday party, BBQ, your own workshop or bushcraft session. Closing date for the draw is the 11th August. Best of luck.

London is jewelled with secret gardens – the private, hidden and little-known green spaces that weave through our urban landscape.

For one very special weekend this June, step outside the guidebooks and discover the gardens that make London green. Relax in the natural spaces tucked away on rooftops, in allotments and behind schools, shops, institutions and cafes, or unlock the private gardens of historic buildings and institutions. Spot some of the rarest plants and wildlife just beyond your doorstep, or experience the best of London’s culture with a programme of activities for all the family.

This year our wonderful community space is taking part.
