The Big Fit Walk at Cart Mill Family Centre is fast approaching!

Big Fit Walk Poster 2017

We’re going for a walk and everyone is invited!

Please put Saturday 18th November in your diary to come along and walk with your child and the rest of our children, families and staff as we head to Busby Glen Park.

The route will be an easy one, up to an hour long, providing a gentle walk with lots of opportunity for fresh air, exercise and most importantly chat! Oh and tea/coffee/water and healthy snacks will be provided at our mid way point.

Please get in touch with Lorraine Glendinning,  Depute Head of Centre to let her know if you are interested in taking part.

Come and experience Autumn with our Family and Friends Walking Group

logoPaths for All is a charity which champions everyday walking in Scotland.

“A physically active lifestyle improves our all round health. Health is more than the absence of illness – it is a balance of physical, social and mental factors. Walking is  a great way to improve our health –  in all ways”

Paths for All (2015)

As I have completed my Walk Leader training with the above organisation, it is my pleasure to be able to lead community walks from our centre.

We would like to encourage as many people as possible to come along and join us next Thursday 5th October at 9.15am on our very first group walk. We plan to walk from the centre to Greenbank Gardens, where we will have a break, then walk back to the centre. The route has been risk assessed and is safe and accessible for buggies too.

As a family centre, at drop off and collection times, we often see parents, aunties, uncles, carers and grandparents, who are the important people that support your child and family. We want to encourage them to join us on our walks too, so please make them aware that if they have a spare hour on a Thursday morning, they will be made most welcome.

So what do you need to bring?

As we experience all 4 seasons in one day (sometimes in 1 hour), here in bonny Scotland, I would ask that you dress appropriately and bring a bottle of water. Plan to be outdoors for the duration of the walk, which will last approximately one hour. We will provide tea, coffee and biscuits as essential fuel at our halfway point!

You will be asked to complete a very short registration form on your first walk and if you would like any more information or have any questions please get in touch .

I hope to see you next Thursday 5th October  at 9.15am.

Please contact the centre to let me know if you are coming along.

Thanks as always to Sharon for leading our walk this morning. It was a slightly more challenging walk with a longer distance and a few hills which was great. We had hoped for snow, however we were glad to have a nice crisp winter day. Maybe our next walk on Friday 6th January will be a snowy one.

We would love to see more of our family members joining us, please come along and give it a try… why not make it a New Year Resolution?

We would like to encourage as many parents, carers and extended family as possible to come along and join us next Friday morning  7th October at 9.15am on our second group walk.

As a family centre, at drop off and collection times, we often see parents, aunties, uncles, carers and grandparents, who are the important people that support your child and family. We want to encourage them to join us on our walks too, so please make them aware that if they have a spare hour on a Friday morning, they will be made most welcome.  While your child/children are busy playing and learning in our centre, this is an excellent opportunity, for us adults to have some fun of our own in the fresh air, walking together and experiencing the changing season. Autumn  walks are very good for our health and wellbeing, and give us some breathing space to gather our thoughts amidst the busy lives we all lead.  Once again, we plan to walk from the centre to Greenbank Gardens, and back with a break in the middle. The route has been risk assessed and is safe and accessible for buggies too.

So what do you need to bring?

As we experience all 4 seasons in one day (sometimes in 1 hour), here in bonny Scotland, I would ask that you dress appropriately and bring a bottle of water. Plan to be outdoors for the duration of the walk, which will last approximately one hour. We will provide tea, coffee and biscuits as essential fuel at our halfway point!

You will be asked to complete a very short registration form on your first walk and if you would like any more information or have any questions please get in touch .

I hope to see you next Friday 7th October at 9.15am
