The charity has been in existence since July 1994, and is made up of an Executive Committee of voluntary Trustees, one paid employee and approximately twenty volunteer befrienders. We work with cancer patients, their families, carers and friends. We do this alongside healthcare professionals and other charities and support groups to provide vital support and information.
We named our walking group OOTANABOOT because that is what we do, go out and about, mainly in Angus but occasionally we stray into Aberdeenshire and even Dundee.
OOTANABOOT is the result of an initiative by Angus Council, NHS Tayside and Paths for All who promote health walks, in Arbroath, Carnoustie, Edzell, Forfar, Kirriemuir, Letham and Montrose. Brechin, sadly, had to break away because we were, quite correctly, no longer considered doing health walks, chiefly because we ventured out of Brechin and walked over an hour.
The principles are the same though which is to allow, mainly older folks though we welcome younger ones, to enjoy socialising while exercising, admiring the wonderful scenery in our area. All walks are risk assessed; a four monthly programme is made up with suggestions from those participating so that choice is always there. Cars are available for transport, drivers receiving a thank you penny at the end or a coffee and cake at the many coffee shops we find on our travels!
Why walk, you ask? Well……………………….
It improves mood and may reduce the risk of depression.
Lowers the risk of strokes and can control diabetes
Can also reduce the risk of heart disease by half
You don’t need special equipment
It’s a chance to make new friends, feel good and have fun.
Join us each Wednesday at 1pm (13.00) – we meet and leave from Brechin Library. You will be made to feel very welcome.

Brechin Healthcare Group (BHG) is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO), No. SC047731.
BHG’s charitable purposes are:
To advance health and the relief of those in need by reason of age, ill health, disability, or financial hardship, or other disadvantage.
To advance health, through the provision of medical equipment and facilities, and through the provision of relief to those suffering from illness.
BHG has been formed to benefit the community of Brechin and Edzell and The Glens. Geographically the community is roughly within a radius of 10 miles from Brechin, but also includes those areas of the Angus Glens and south Aberdeenshire covered by GP Practices in Brechin and Edzell.
The therapies that I offer are:
Hypnotherapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and REIKI can help treat matters of the mind and body which perhaps hold you back from reaching your full potential in any aspects of your life’s journey.
Please visit my website HYPNOTAP for further information
So if you:
Are you looking to change your life?
Are there issues and problems you would like to be rid of?
Anything at all that is holding you back from getting the most out of life?
Well, this could be as simple as changing your thought patterns or your beliefs about yourself because your reality is created by your “beliefs,” usually deep seated beliefs, sometimes ingrained from birth. It is from these beliefs that we form our perceptions about the world and ourselves, and from these perceptions we develop our behaviours and how we deal with life.
So if you want to make the changes in your life so that you can do what you want to do and be all you want can be an aid to help you reach your full potential. These therapies are not magic wands but techniques to help you overcome any outdated thoughts and beliefs to enable you to live the life and achieve the goals you dream of.
I can also offer an alternative to the above in the form of a Reiki treatment. The Reiki system of healing is a safe, gentle, non-intrusive technique to treat physical or emotional problems or simply for relaxation. It is a holistic system for balancing, healing and harmonising all aspects of the body and when the whole body is in balance it can heal itself.
Discover the real you and tap into your full potential now!

We are a voluntary organisation working with all members of the public to enhance the community spirit and connection of all individuals in the Arbroath & District area.
Colourful Carnoustie is a group of volunteers who are dedicated to improving the environment, primarily through developing and maintaining the floral ‘look’ of the town. We work with local schools and organisations and in both 2015 and 2016 Carnoustie won gold awards in the Beautiful Scotland competition. We took a year out in 2017 but are now gearing ourselves up for a vigorous and enjoyable 2018, especially with the Open in the town this July.
Carnoustie to Barry is a long town. Our efforts to date have mostly been focused on the town centre, but we would like to expand west along Dundee Street and Barry Road. And to do this we need help! Help of any kind is much appreciated, whether in providing ideas, helping with projects, an hour or two of planting up or weeding, taking responsibility for watering one or some planters, fund-raising, or simply following us on Facebook and spreading the word.
