A special Christmas-time winter wander event is being run in Eastwood’s award-winning Rouken Glen Park on Wednesday, December 14.

Walkers can take a historical stroll with Archaeology Scotland, join a Rouken Glen ranger to explore the park’s bird life, go for a short walk around the pond or take in the surrounding area of the park.

The free event is aimed at bringing together people from across East Renfrewshire who enjoy walking.

Organisers are hoping older residents will join in the fun, and discover the benefits of joining a walking group for themselves.

On their return all walkers can enjoy a hot drink, scone and a mince pie along with carol singing and live music.

If you’re going wear suitable warm clothing and stout walking shoes or boots, and – if you have a pair –bring your binoculars to see the wildlife.

Transport will be provided for anyone who needs it to get to the park.

Registration for each walk will take place at the Pavilion in Rouken Glen Park from 9.30am on the day, and. all walks start at 10am.

Social work and health convener Councillor Alan Lafferty said: “Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.

“It’s ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active, and joining a walking group is a great way to socialise and meet new people.”
