Last Braveheart Walk of 2018!

The last Braveheart Walk of 2018 is this Friday, 14th December. But! Do not despair! The first walk of 2019 will be on the 11th of January.

Since becomming weekly, the Braveheart Walks have been very popular. Even with inclement weather, we have always had plenty of people wanting to get out and take a stroll around the area.

For those who haven’t been on a Braveheart Walk before, this is a planned, guided walk around different local routes, led by the team from Braveheart, a local partnership between charity Paths For All and NHS Forth Valley.All walks from Forth Valley Sensory Centre leave at 11:30am so arrive dressed for the weather at 11:15am!

The plan was to encourage over 55’s to get out and be more active, whilst also making new friends and enjoying a social occasion. It is no surprise that all Braveheart Walks start and end at a Cafe!

We have been hosting walks for around a year now, first sporadic, then monthly and due to demand, weekly. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome to join in too so Rover can also get his exercise.

Sighted guides are available for those who need them and we have a number of Ramble Tag guidance aids for people to try too. The Ramble Tag is a great wee invention by Tom Forsyth and Laura Maclean to help blind people when out walking or taking part in sports like running.

If you cannot make it along on Friday, do not worry! Braveheart will be back walking in the New Year to help you shift any festive excess. The first walk will be 11th January, 11:30am with weekly walks again thereafter.

We hope to see you soon! If you are interested in this or any of our other activities, see our What’s On pages for more information.
