Getting out and about with Fife Carers Centre's Walking Group
Fife Carers Centre has launched a walking group for carers in the West Fife area. The walking group will meet fortnightly on a Tuesday from 11:30 - 13:00.
The group's activities include one hour of walking and then time after for a chance to have a cuppa and a chat. For each walk, the group will have two walk leaders, so you don’t have to worry about if you are a fast walker or more leisurely - the group will be able to have different paced walks on the day.
On the first day that you come along, you will need to fill out a Walkers Registration Form and bring a telephone number of an Emergency Contact in case something happens whilst you are walking. The purpose of the group is to provide a space for carers to relax a bit and get away from their caring role so, the Centre ask that members please do not bring along any children, the person you care for, or any dogs.
The Centre has organised a timetable for the group's activities taking place over the next few months:
27 July, 11:30-13:00: Culross with Carol and Janet
10 August, 11:30-13:00: Dunfermline Glen with Cindy and Carol
24 August, 11:30-13:00: Loch Ore Meadows with Janet and Cindy
07 September, 11:30-13:00: Limeklins with Carol and Janet
21 September, 11:30-13:00: Townhill Loch with Cindy and Carol
05 October, 11:30-13:00: Destination TBC with Janet and Cindy
