What’s on offer at Heartie Thrang?

Those hoping to take part in Kirriemuir’s Heartie Thrang this summer are advised to get ready to book their activities as soon as possible.

The event will be staged in Kirriemur on July 28 and will feature a variety of activities from archery, felt-making, cup-cake decorating and cycling to indoor canoeing, line-dancing, tai chi, gardening, glass painting and life drawing.

There will also be seated exercise, a history walk of Kirriemuir, a nature walk out to Kinnordy and horse riding at Pathhead.

The organisers have striven to showcase the wide range of activities on offer in Kirriemuir, and all the activities will be accessible for those with a disability.

Transport and wheelchairs will also be provided.

The full list of activities can be viewed on www.heartiethrang.org.uk and bookings will be taken from April 28, closing on June 28.

The advice is to get in early to avoid disappointment.

The Heartie Thrang is an event for people over 50 and happens every two years in a different part of Angus.

The local committee ran a quiz sheet with the winner of a bottle of whisky, signed by Angus MP Mike Weir, being Amanda Barclay from Dundee.
