Event description: This is the first time that AONBs have come together for a national moment. Heart shapes will be formed across the country and are being captured on film and video and shared with others.

The heart shape has been chosen as it represents not only the love for these areas but also that AONBs and National Parks were originally thought of as the ‘Natural Health Service’. The legislation that allowed the creation of these
protected landscapes, the National Parks & Access to the Countryside Act was agreed in 1949, the same year as the National Health Service. The two acts were seen as complimentary; preventing illness through recreation and then curing them if did get ill.

We hope you can join us on the 21st at Carding Mill Valley, Church Stretton. Be part of our pop-up choir or simply bring a picnic, wear bright clothing and help us to create a heart at the heart of the Shropshire Hills AONB. We look forward to seeing you.
