Colour in nature

Arts Coordinator and visual artist, Mir Jansen, has created a series of colouring-in packs inspired by photos of wildflowers taken by local budding photographers in the beautiful village of Bamford. These packs are available for you to download, print off, and enjoy the extremely popular and relaxing pastime of colouring-in.

Each pack includes a guide with the names of the flowers, where they were found, and some interesting background information.  Smaller versions of the illustrations can also be used for postcards.

We would love to see your finished pictures – please send them in to us at – they might make it on to our Share your arts gallery.

Our thanks go to Bamford residents for their beautiful wildflower photography – Steve Eyre, Penny Lavery, Elaine Randall, Peter Feetham, Pete Mackey, Ann Kelly, and Janet Skirrow.


My Life

We have created the ‘My Life’ booklet for you to download, print out, and fill in. It’s an opportunity to take a blissful trip down memory lane as well as stir within you hopes and dreams for the days ahead. It makes a lovely keepsake and something you can share with family members and loved ones – they might have known you for years but we can bet there’ll be something about you and your life they never knew!

If you don’t have a printer, don’t worry, you can always use the ideas in here to make your own My Life booklet – all you need is a pen, some paper, a cup of tea, and some quiet time to ponder and remember.

The Arts in Health team relies on the goodwill of our dedicated team of volunteers. We also regularly work with professional artists and musicians on a variety of creative projects across the Trust.
