Buggy Walk to take its first steps in Kirriemuir

ANGUSalive are set to ‘stroll out’ their first ever Buggy Walk as part of their growing “Healthy Steps Angus” initiative.

Buggy Walks are designed for expectant or new parents to get active while caring for their new bundle of joy. As well as reaping the many health benefits of going out for a walk, they are also a fun way for parents, grandparents and carers to meet new people, chat and share experiences on a safe and welcoming walk led by trained walk leaders. Other key benefits include improved mood and reduced anxiety, being active and feeling fitter whilst setting healthy habits for children.

The first session will set off at 10.15am on Thursday 11 May and is expected to last around 45 minutes. It will start and end at the Kirriemuir Library – just in time for the ever-popular Bookbug session, Scotland’s universal early years book gifting programme which supports families to read, sing and play with their little ones.

Rhona Guild – ANGUSalive’s Health Walk Co-Ordinator – has extensive NHS experience and is thrilled to get the first Buggy Walk underway. Rhona said: “I have been wanting to launch this initiative for some time, particularly as we move into the warmer weather so it comes at a very exciting time for us. We really want to roll this out throughout Angus and are actively looking for volunteers to help us co-ordinate these walks throughout our communities.”

Sylvia Main, Children and Families Lead at ANGUSalive added “We are delighted to get the Buggy Walk initiative underway and collaborate with our colleagues across our service. We think this will prove to be popular and will complement the Bookbug sessions that we currently have across our libraries. We are hopeful we can begin to roll these out across our other venues too.”

No booking for either Buggy Walk or Bookbug is required and both are free. Should you need more information, please visit
