I went along to the gardening club at Lews Castle College, run by Alzheimer Scotland, today. Everyone was making Christmas decoration wreaths and cuddling three-week-old baby bunnies.
Contact the Lewis & Harris Branch of Alzheimer Scotland if you’d like to give it a try.
There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor gardening and hundreds of chickens, a few goats, pigs, sheep etc and it is a nice reconnection for people who miss crofting and gardening, plus a great opportunity to get outdoors and make a difference in the community. The tea and cake is very welcome too, not to mention the fantastic company.
