It doesn’t get better than the Isle of Wight does it? All that sunshine and the smell of salty brine and fish as the ferry gently chugs across the inviting blue sea, its flag rustling in the warm breeze. And that’s pretty much what it was like on Wednesday when I visited our army of volunteer puppy parents as they met for their weekly puppy class in Godshill Scout Hall. All of the above applied, plus a choc chip cookie on the voyage over, just to put the icing on the cake. The only fly in the ointment was the early start in order to check in at 7.30am at Portsmouth Harbour, but that’s ok. We ‘sea dogs’ like early starts, after all. Read more

So how can you help?
1. You can organise a walk yourself or with a few friends.
We have an organisers pack available which gives you all the
details to help you get started. We can help promote your
walk locally through press and the website and help with posters, leaflets and merchandise packs. If you are interested in organising a walk contact us on the numbers below. You can download an event poster here.
2. You can join one of our walks.
We need support for all the walks we put on so get together family and friends and enjoy fun time out. You can download a registration form below.
Bluebell walks are sponsored walks organised by a whole army of volunteers and supporters like you!
How many people can I have?
There is no limit, you can have anything from 5 to 500 people - it's up to you!
How long does the walk have to be?
Again, there is no limit, you choose from 1 to 10 miles, or longer if you wish.
When should I hold the walk?
Ideally between April and June as this is when the Bluebells are expected to be in bloom - this gives you thirteen weekends to choose from, including the May Bank Holiday.
What if I don't have Bluebells near me?
If you want to take part but don't have bluebells growing near you, don't worry, you can still hold a walk in your local woods or park and we will provide bluebell stickers that you can wear instead.
