Wellness at your fingertips

YOGIS, grab your mats — this homage to self-care has anyone needing a virtual cuddle covered. The Big e-Treat is the online offspring of Pembrokeshire’s The Big Retreat (pictured above).

GET set for the Great Feast of London. This free digital feast, taking place from July 3 to 5, hooks up diners with a stellar line-up of London’s best chefs, which they can then order from for home delivery. Confirmed chefs include Restaurant 1251’s James Cochran (pictured) and burger aficionados Patty & Bun — and for every meal bought across the weekend, one will be donated to A Plate For London, providing meals to those hit hardest by the pandemic.

Wild Spirit Bushcraft in the rugged environs of South Wales (above) offers a range of courses, from cultivating your own herb garden to coastal foraging, bushcraft and woodlore. While they’re not available at the moment, they plan to be back in action as soon as possible. For more information, visit
