Teachers and pupils helped create a booklet on the great outdoors.

Manor Green Primary School pupils visited and gave feedback on featured locations in Visiting the West Sussex Countryside, which was published recently.

Cllr Peter Evans, West Sussex County Council cabinet member for children, said:“We know that getting out and about into the countryside can have considerable benefits for people’s health and wellbeing, and this is especially true for children and young people.

“The guide is designed to make the experience of visiting somewhere new as easy as possible, with information on things like whether animals will be encountered and how far a child would need to walk.”

Manor Green Primary School were one of three schools across the county involved in compiling the booklet.

A county council spokeswoman said the guide will help children with autism experience the outdoors.

The booklet will feature 24 diverse locations in West Sussex and is available from libraries, children and family centres or from the county council on
