A Bolton based organisation has teamed up with Manchester’s largest adventure golf course to make a difference to young children’s mental health.

Dino Falls Adventure Golf and Mini Minds Matter have come together in a bid to promote mental wellness and mindfulness.

As part of this initiative Mandy Worsley and Julie Robinson - who run the organisation - have introduced ‘Mini Mindful Moments’ throughout the Jurassic-themed course.

The aim is to encourages young adventurers to pause, reflect and engage in affirmations or simply soak in the sights and sounds as they navigate the prehistoric landscape.

Director of Golf, Pete Styles, said: "At Dino Falls Adventure Golf, we believe in creating experiences that go beyond the game.

“Teaming up with Mini Minds Matter allows us to contribute to a cause that resonates with our commitment to creating positive experiences for children.

“By incorporating 'Mini Mindful Moments' into our course, we aim to provide not just a great day out but also moments of reflection for young minds."

In an effort to further support children's mental health, Dino Falls Adventure Golf and Mini Minds Matter are also co-authoring a book featuring the adventures of ‘Wellasaurus’ as he explores the Jurassic inspired venue.

The Bolton News: This book aims to engage children in a captivating narrative while subtly introducing themes of mindfulness and mental well-being.

Julie and Mandy both expressed their gratitude for the collaboration.

Mandy said: "We are thrilled to be partnering with Dino Falls Adventure Golf to promote mental wellbeing in children.

“With an event planned in March for our members, plus the exciting launch of a brand new book to add to our established series - we’re thrilled to be building on our mission to instil positive habits early on.”

The book is available to buy on Amazon and at Trafford Golf Centre, the home of Dino Falls Adventure Golf.

The Bolton News: It will be the 15th in a series of interactive story books, complete with activity pages to keep little ones engaged and enable them to take a mindful moment in their day.

The books provides a creative and educational tool to initiate conversations about mental health with young children.

The free fun day took place on Monday March 25.

Mini Minds Matter works with primary schools, nurseries, and independent practitioners such as childminders and more, to provide an innovative, dinosaur themed mindfulness programme. This programme is carried out in educational settings, incorporating the use of meditations, affirmations and more to embed a growth mindset in children from as young as birth.

They have currently been commissioned and are working alongside Bolton Council, and they have trained the local authority's family workers and NHS public health staff, in emotional regulation and support for families.
