Galashiels residents are being encouraged to get involved in the wide range of activities taking place at the Langlee Early Years Centre.

As well as the normal activities on offer at the centre, such as the mother and toddler group, pictured above, there are two new courses available, funded by the Big Lottery Community and Families Fund.

Wild About Dads is a Saturday morning group for fathers and male carers of children aged up to eight years old. It is a chance for them to connect with nature and spend quality time with their children and other dads. On August 15, 22 and 29, the group gathers in the Langlee Community Woodlands – meet in the Langlee Community Centre car park. From September 5, they will meet in the centre for indoor fun and games. The sessions run from from 10-11.30am. And every Wednesday evening, a free activity club is being held in the centre for families and children (aged 5-8 years). From football and gardening through to baking, multi-sport, nature trail and family discos, there is something for everyone. The sessions run from 6-7.30pm.
