• Walk and Talk at The Wellness Hub, Motherwell

    After their weekly walk to Strathclyde Park, the Walk n Talk group come back to Pat Cullinan Community Centre for a cup a tea n a blether. On Thursday 2nd July, we also started a Wee Read writing and reading group. We heard poems and stories, and wrote about animals and childhood homes amongst other things.

    I heard that the group recently won an award and I can see why! The award is for Oustanding Achievement in promoting good health and wellbeing. Well done!The group is part of the Health and Wellness Hub 

    The group was so friendly and welcoming, it was a pleasure sharing some time with them. I will do another three Thursdays of Wee Read wi’ the Walk n Talk group!

Born in 1958 and brought up in Blantyre in a family of seven. Moved to Glasgow in 1976 and stayed until 2012. Then I moved back to Hamilton where I had attended secondary school, for 4 years. Home is now Glasgow, again, I am a weegie through 'n through. I have two daughters, and four granddaughters who all light up my life. My experience of working with poetry, writing, reading and so on is from my childhood. One of my poems was published in a school magazine when I was 12. I am now trying to publish my first grown-up booklet of poems within the next year or so. I trained and studied to become a librarian from 1977. It was the one job I wanted since reading in Hamilton Townhouse Library in the early 1970's!I watched the staff and thought, I'd like to work here... Bibliotherapy came into my life in 2007, at Glasgow Women's Library.
