    I just heard that I passed my ¬†Emergency First Aid course! Huge thanks to the Drover’s Tryst for organising and funding it. I got a place on it because I’ll be leading a walk for them next week (Medicinal Meander Around Muthill). It’s a low level, easy walk exploring the wealth of medicinal plants still thriving in our hedgerows. Sadly, (gladly!) its now fully booked but if you like the look of it, please do get in touch and if I get enough enquiries I’ll run another one.

    The first aid course was run by BASP, the British Association of Ski Patrollers, which was ideal for the group, many of whom will be leading high level, hard and extra hard walks. As well as Basic Life Support, we had the opportunity to practice out of doors and learn about scenarios we are likely to encounter in remote outdoor situations. Our instructor was excellent. She is  a Mountain Rescue volunteer, a Ski Patroller and she is a nurse in the Cardiac Unit Рwe were in expert hands! Her confident, warm approach put us all at ease and we passed Рyay!

    It was great to meet some of the other walk leaders. I’m really chuffed to be a part of The Tryst this year (a big thank you to the Muthill Paths and Walking Group for putting me forward). It’s a fantastic week to explore Strathearn, with outdoor walks and mountain biking as well as a programme of educational and entertaining social events. Have a look round the website and see what takes your fancy. Strathearn is guaranteed to be buzzing next week! Maybe I’ll see you around…
