OOTANABOOT
Locality:
Long Business Description:

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

It’s free

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.

Angus Birding
Long Business Description:

Established in 2000 – 18 years and counting!

The aim of the forum is to provide current information (and be a referral for past records) of Birds, Mammals and Cetaceans in the Angus and Eastern Scotland area. This is done via a forum which is open to the public and where sightings can be posted and viewed. Sightings are obviously not guaranteed but filtered as best as possible, and news regarding sensitive species may be edited if need be. It is also a handy place to post your photographs, ask questions, meet local wildlife enthusiasts and promote local wildlife events.

Long Business Description:

Since 1921 we have stood for and provided support to veterans and their families.

When servicemen and women return to civilian life after serving with the Armed Forces some are in need of community and friendship, maybe as a result of their experiences in the services or purely because they are no longer part of the ‘military family’ they had come to rely. We make a difference every day to the lives of those veterans through our comradeship and befriending programme, developing strong communities and supporting remembrance.

Our large family network is spread across Scotland and helps support veterans and their families to get on with their lives and assists those who require assistance.
