Local woman Kate Thomas is a volunteer who has set up an ‘Out and About’ course to help groups of women learn how to get around the city, and to give them the confidence to explore outside of the local area. Kate has been running courses for many years now, and says, “I like introducing people to new places and I like meeting people.”

Previously the groups, which have close connections with local schools, have been based at a different school each week, but this year they have a new base at Abbeyfield Park House. From here Kate and a group of women venture out to popular spots in the city, such as Heeley City Farm, Weston Park Museum, and Endcliffe Park. Sometimes they venture further afield; they have been to Rotherham to go to the markets, and for the past two Christmases have visited Chatsworth House to see the decorations. Some sessions are classroom based and trips vary to take account of the weather.

When: Tuesdays, 9.30am- 12.00pm starting off at Abbeyfield Park House.

Cost: There is no charge – you just need to bring your bus fare.

For more information, contact your school’s Family Learning organiser or call Kate on 07794 854 104
