> Some research also suggests moderate exercise can strengthen the immune system, reducing the risk of coughs and colds

> Always make sure you’re warm before you go outside. Wear several layers to keep heat in and warm up for 10 minutes before you start

> Meet up with friends to exercise, whether a walk, run, or drop in to Lindengate during one of our open to all sessions (see website for opening times)

> If you like to be active in the garden, there’s no reason why you should stop just because the temperature drops. You can plan a Winter garden, so there is always plenty to see and do, during the colder months of the year

The garden at Lindengate lends itself to supporting people in recovering from a range of mental health needs

A spokesman said: "We look forward to welcoming you to Lindengate, where nature breathes new life into anyone looking for a little support with their wellbeing. Situated over five acres, take time for yourself and let nature nurture your wellbeing."
