Carers get looked after . . .

CARERS in Motherwell got all dressed up for the final session of an eight-week health and welbeing programme.

The Feel Fantastic Fridays Group - made up of carers from Clydeview School and Nursery and Firpark School - enjoyed relaxation and alternative therapies workshops during the programme and the finale was a laughter therapy workshop which certainly seemed to work a treat.

The carers had body checks taken by a community worker who told them their BMI, flexibility score and cholesterol level.

The group then embarked on exercise classes, which included zumba, tai chi and yoga, before having another body check on the final week - and they were surprised at how quickly they had improved.
