Reward yourself. Reward a charity of your choice (we hope it would be Warley Woods of course). What could be better?
BetterPoints is a reward programme with a difference.
It encourages you to do something good – for you, your health or your community – and everyone benefits.
How do you earn BetterPoints?
It’s simple: download the app from the App Store or Google Play and record what you’re doing. Take up a healthy activity: like walking,running or cycling. You collect Betterpoints for all the time you spend on this activity (there is a maximum you can earn each week), but the app will keep a record of your activity and your progress to help keep you motivated.
When you are ready you can either spend your points and claim a voucher for yourself, or you can donate the points to one of the partner charities – Warley Woods Community Trust is a partner. It can be a bit tricky to find us in the app, so most people who have donated to us, pop onto the website to do this, where you can search for charities and find Warley Woods easily.
You can go to the Betterpoints website through here.
Our bird box with a camera has residents this year. Two blue tits, now named Sam (uel) and Lucy after the first owners of Warley Park have laid a clutch of eight eggs and are now incubating them. Many thanks to Di Kerr who donated the box, Abbie Kendrick who donated the monitor and John Tunrbull who installed all the technicals. The monitor is in the café at the Pavilion and you can come and see what they are up to during our opening hours. 7am – 6pm weekends and 8am – 7pm weekdays. The café closes at 3-3.30, but the shop serves icecreams, hot drinks and snacks after the café closes.
Here are the eggs and click here to see a short video of Lucy on the nest.
