Walk and talk

I’ve just heard about Barrhead First Steps an inspired idea by Gayle Meechan. Gayle has set up a weekly walking group which is open to people of all ages and aims to help reduce social isolation and encourage the community to come together. Walking is one of the best ways to get around. It’s simple, it’s free and it can help keep you fit or shed some extra pounds. Anyone can do it and it’s an excellent way to boost activity and get mobile. So I was delighted to hear Gayle is encouraging parents, grandparents, carers and children to join on the fun and interesting routes. Barrhead First Steps meets at the Barrhead Foundry every Friday at 9.30am. You can just turn up or if you want to know more call 0141 577 8463 or email HITeam@eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk
