Happy long weekend everyone. We are loving seeing all the beautiful #blossom in the #spring sunshine.
This photo was taken by 15 year old Maisie Wood from #Frome in last year's #lockdown. Let's hope brighter times are ahead this year.

It’s great to see the government launching an updated #CountrysideCode.
We hope the refreshed code will reach a wider range of people, many of whom may be recent converts to enjoying the wonders of our beautiful countryside.
💔It breaks our hearts to see so much #littering in the news after we have all relished our outdoor spaces in the last year. 💔
Please support our #crowdfunder so we can put out our #2minutelitterpick stations across #Somerset to turn the tide on #litter
Time to get out & enjoy our #countryside again with your friends.
Our green spaces & countryside have been a lifeline in the last year. Show them some love by supporting your local countryside #charity. http://ow.ly/exLU50E9oOv
