An Eastbourne man is trying to help raise awareness about the dangers of pollution in the sea. Qualified boat driver Matt Single has started a fundraiser, dubbed project Neptune, in the hopes of raising around £10,000 to buy a 30 ft motor cruiser. It, alongside a Power Point projected, banners, signs, flyers and a regular podcast, should give Matt the platform he needs to raise awareness about pollution, the problems it causes and how regular people can help. The boat will also help Matt work with seaside events- like Eastbourne’s Airbourne Airshow-in the name of expanding his platform and publicising his cause.He’d also like to use the boat to run small, commercial pleasure trips. Profits, he hopes, will provide another source of income for the charity. More importantly to Matt, however, the trips should give his customers a chance to connect with the natural world. ‘I believe that getting out onto the water and experiencing its majesty, seeing the diversity … [Read more...] about Meet the Eastbourne man on an eco-quest to save our seas.

Simon Heffer Follow 7 July 2019 • 1:39pm Distracted by the Natural History Museum’s remarkable contents, it is easy to overlook the magnificence of its architecture; but it is one of Britain’s finest Victorian buildings. It grew out of the natural history department of the British Museum, which by the 1850s was bursting at the seams; this coincided with the movement, inspired by the Prince Consort in the aftermath of the Great Exhibition of 1851 (and using its profits), to devote South Kensington to the arts and sciences.

Certainly, I imagine I must look somewhat incongruous to any unfortunate dog-walkers who stumble across me as I traipse barefoot across Highgate Wood, smiling silently, vacantly stroking tree bark and looking a little like I have ingested the wrong sort of mushroom. This is forest bathing, the practice of taking time to relax surrounded by woodland. It comes from the Japanese “shinrin-yoku”, which means taking in the forest atmosphere, but is now firmly embedded in the zeitgeist of Western mindfulness. “I invite you now to notice all the different kinds of green you can see,” says Claire de Boursac, a nature wellbeing practitioner, our guide today and the only one of the three of us allowed to speak for two hours (she usually takes groups of up to 15 but it is midday and midweek).
