Torbay CAN (Connecting Actively to Nature)

The CAN programme aims to help people discover the combined benefits of a more active lifestyle, with the psychological benefits that being outdoors in nature brings.

Starting this summer at Torre Abbey we are running a series of free to attend short courses to specifically help the over 55’s with getting outdoors, trying something new and meeting new people.

Although aimed at over 55’s (where suitable) we encourage them to bring their younger family members along too.

All sessions are part of the Torbay Connecting to Nature Programme funded by Active Devon.
