AFON Guest Blog: Here’s to a green 2017!

(My post for A Focus On Nature) For 2017, what I would like is Nature Conservation to be taken more seriously by Councils and the Government.  They need to properly see it as a Universal Problem.  It is not an issue only for a certain class system, region, gender, sexuality, age or level of education… Continue reading AFON Guest Blog: Here’s to a green 2017!

Day 24 – 30 Days Wild

Behind the Scenes: Video for the Wild I chose the mystery location for yesterdays' video, because I grew up a short walk away from it and was inspired by an episode of Countryfile where Anita Rani showcases rural Bradford 😛  Incase you've not seen the video, I'll not ruin the 'surprise' with naming it.  It's where I… Continue reading Day 24 – 30 Days Wild
