It’s #NationalStoryTellingWeek so let’s explore some fantastical locations

A recap of our favourite photos from #ScrapbookOutdoors Week 4
Week 4 of our #ScrapbookOutdoors challenge was looking to bring out the wildlife photographer in you, when we asked you to get outdoors and snap some photos of birds. The challenge fell at the same time as the RSPB big garden bird watch, and we had some fantastic photos from around the globe.

For week 3 in our #ScrapbookOutdoors project we wanted to come to the rescue of the colour blue.

Celebrate Winnie the Pooh Day with a visit to his home
January 18th marks the annual ‘Winnie the Pooh Day’, which is celebrated on the birthday of the author A.A. Milne. The special day is a chance for Pooh Bear fans of all ages to celebrate their love for one of Britain’s best loved story characters. If you enjoy Pooh’s adventures with Piglet, Eeyore and co., did you know that you can visit where the ideas and stories came from?
The 100 Acre Wood where the characters had their fun in the stories is actually based on the 500 Acre Wood in Ashdown Forest, East Sussex. Read more
We’re so glad it’s Blue Monday!
Apparently we’re supposed to be miserable on Blue Monday, but that doesn’t seem very fun. So when Blue Monday hit we decided to get excited about the new 2017 range of Hi Gear Elite tents, because they’re #BackInBlue. Take a look at the range below as we go over what you can expect from the Hi Gear Elite range this year. Read more
How can you get fit without the costly gym membership?
January comes with a torrent of celebrity endorsed fitness DVD’s and all the local Gym’s telling you that it’s a new year and a new you (for their small sign up fee). While gym’s are great for fitness, there are also plenty of ways to keep fit outdoors, and the scenery is a little nicer too.
