Park walk for literacy
A family fun afternoon will be held in Overtoun Park on Saturday in a bid to raise awareness of adult literacy services.
Dubbed Walk for Literacy, the event from noon to 2pm will see a host of fun activities for adults and kids to enjoy.
There will be a walk around the park where families will be helped to identify the different trees, birds and wildlife there, as well as other fun exploring for little ones.
Hosted by the community learning and home school partnership, the event will also allow adults to meet Julia Ross and Greta Fordyce, literacy and numeracy workers.
They want to tell people abut the services open to them to boost their literacy and numeracy skills.
Julia said:“Around one-quarter of Scotland’s population experience challenges with literacy and numeracy in their lives.
“From managing their money to helping their children with homework, applying for employment online, and being able to read daily newspapers, there are lots of everyday activities which most people take for granted but which some people struggle with.
“But there is help out there, via services like mine, which is free and based on what people need to learn.”
Water and healthy snacks will be provided at the event.
