Carers Week Creative Event

Redhall Walled Gardens Carers Week Event

Thanks to everyone who came along to our Carers Week event at the Redhall Walled Garden. It was fantastic to meet carers from across Edinburgh, Midlothian, West Lothian and East Lothian and join Carers of West Lothian, Vocal and Carers of East Lothian to mark this special occasion.

Carers get Creative

This year there was a creative art workshop and a music session with a Desert Island Disc style theme. We saw some beautiful artwork created and the music workshop uncovered some special places and songs that help some of us escape to when our lives can get hectic. A big thank you to Heather from Lighbulb Arts, Greig and James from ECC for running the music workshops and to the staff at Redhall Walled Gardens for making us feel so welcome again this year.

Here's what some carers had to say about the event....

"Just wanted to send you and the rest of the team, a huge thankyou for
such a relaxing and restorative afternoon last week. All three attendees asked if I could convey my thanks- all of them
said they had a brilliant day out and they all tried something new that opened their eyes to other possibilities! Can we come again next year?"

"Thanks a lot for all your hard work at the Redhall gardens  carers event. It was a fabulous day and enjoyed by all."

"Thanks for organising. It was a lovely event."
