Living in the National Forest
We are delighted to have created our first outdoor gallery this year. Works of original art, created on leaf shaped boards, have adorned the uppper floors of buildings throughout the town . These have all been produced by local artists and have the theme of ‘Living in the National Forest’.
We are inviting local shoppers and town visitors to view the outdoor gallery which is in the form of a leaf trail. The trail guide is available to download and follow around the town. Art trail leaflet (PDF Document, 1.62 Mb)

We want to share the message that we live right inside the National Forest – an area that is growing every year. We are very lucky to have so many areas of woodland to enjoy, both alone and with our families. We are all aware of the benefits of walking amongst trees and the role they play in the health of not just ourselves, but our planet too.

We are also hosting a Children’s Gallery in the window of one of the Belvoir Centre shops. Over fourty children have produced a decorated leaf to create a colourful display of foliage. Please visit this too as part of the trail.
