- Tai Chi lessons
- Crafting and art therapy
- Creative writing
Please check this page often for other Time Out opportunities that arise from time to time.
Group trip to Eyemouth
The Peebles, Kelso and Eyemouth groups all recently got together and spent a wonderful day having a private tour of Gunsgreen House and lunch at Eyemouth Golf Club. This was kindly funded by Age Concern. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet up, share stories and take a break from the caring routine.
Central Borders Trip to Abbotsford House
The Jubilee Garden
Our Carers Jubilee Garden was opened in May 2013, and was made possible with a generous donation from our local B&Q.
The garden, just outside our offices in Galashiels and along the banks of Gala Water, is available for any carer to come and enjoy.
A lovely, peaceful place for you to gather your thoughts, lift your spirits and relax.
Please pop in to the office and we will take you along to the garden.
We will be using the garden extensively throughout the year for meetings, carers support groups, Summer fetes, Christmas fayres and more.
We look forward to seeing you there!
