Farm visit postponed!

Date: 18th July 2012


Rescheduled! Due to the rain we are postponing the farm visit and picnic to Saturday 4th August (originally Sat. 21st July). At this stage it would just be a mud fest ... the farm road has all but washed away. Hopefully we'll get some good weather soon!

It will be a fantastic day out when we do make it! It's a working farm, and is a very hands-on experience. There'll be ponies, pigs, chickens, goats and much more. For more information see our activity page. Please RSVP so we can confirm numbers.

Ceilidh - Tickets on sale soon!

Come exercise with us

Date: 15th July 2012

Workout hall   

Some of our members have been trialling an idea to work out together. We bring our kids! It's been working well, so we are now extending an invitation to all our members and families with small kids who are also interested in getting fit.

This is an indoor event. We meet for an hour at a time usually in a hall in Tillicoultry and simply work out together. The kids play and what you do is up to you. So far we've had running, circuits, trampoline, skipping, hula hoops, and balance exercises.

This week we are meeting 10am-11 on Mon. 16th and Thu. 19th.

There is a cap of 10 adults to allow this to be fun and safe for everyone. If our session gets very popular we'll simply run extra sessions to cope. So come along and see if you like it. Please contact us to find out more or book your spot. c_nugent@hotmail.com
