September has always been a celebratory month in the countryside with harvests being brought safely home and trees taking on their autumnal colours.

And this year it will be even more outstanding as the UK’s AONB Family comes together to organise a 10 day programme of events to help people enjoy and be inspired by the UK’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs).

Starting on Saturday 19th September and continuing through to Sunday 27th September the family will be promoting 120 events including  country shows, dark sky discovery nights, walking festivals, archaeology walks, wood fairs, foraging and local food festivals, wildlife walks, coastal and marine days, thatching courses, drystone walling competitions, charcoal making and many, many other activities.

 As Jill Smith, Communictaion Offiicer for the AONB family explains:

 “Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are some of the most beautiful and cherished landscapes in the UK. They are vibrant landscapes which offer a wealth of opportunities for everyone to enjoy them. They are Landscapes for Life in so many different ways. Events are being organised throughout the country so please join us for an Outstanding Week!”
