Welcome to Positive Steps Kemnay

Welcome to the Positive Steps Kemnay (PSK) web site.  This site has been setup to publish useful  information about the work of the group which was formed to offer opportunities for adults of all ages and abilities to take part in a walking activity.

Health Walks around Kemnay

Important Information – Update 17th May 2021

From 17th May 2021 Scotland has moved from Level 3 to Level 2 Covid-19 restrictions (apart from Glasgow City and Moray, which remain in Level 2). We have been walking on a Friday and Buggy Walks on a Thursday since 19th March, with regularly up to 30 walkers on a Friday. This large group has been split into three sub groups, with gentle walkers meeting at one end of Bogbeth Park, and two longer walk groups meeting outside the bowling club pavilion. Meeting there at 0930 hours on a Friday. Buggy Walks meet at 1000 hours on a Thursday.

Kemnay Kestrels have also been walking every Wednesday since that time, with generally two walks depending on numbers. Walks are communicated via email each week.

This is positive news for Positive Steps Kemnay – we are going in the right direction!

Important Information – Update 10th March 2021

Following the Scottish Government announcement on 9th March, Paths For All have confirmed that as from 12th March, we will be able to walk again in a group of up to 15 adults, including walkers and leaders, all subject to observance of social distance guidelines. This is indeed good news, and the leaders will be working towards the first walking day of 19th March.

Kemnay Kestrels will be working to the same ruling and are aiming to start with a first local walk on 17th March, which will be announced in due course.

Please look out for further announcements on Positive Steps Kemnay Facebook page and via emails being sent to walkers.

Some positive news at last!

Important Information – Update 25th February 2021

Paths for All have confirmed following Nicola Sturgeon’s update on 23rd February that there are no changes to health walks at this time. There was also no indication as to when they may be able to resume. All a bit frustrating but we can still walk in pairs and hope for better news.

Meanwhile the Committee of Positive Steps Committee continues to meet (by Zoom) and with the Annual Reports needing to be prepared and presented to our Annual General Meeting, it is a time for reflecting on a strange year and planning for a more active year!!

It would be good to hear back from you and hear what you may have managed to do outside.

Important Information – Update 4th January 2021
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions we have suspended all walking within the various groups of Positive Steps Kemnay until further notice, at least until end January 2021. Please watch out for further emails, notices on our Facebook site and other social media for more updates. We all wish to resume walking as soon as possible, but in the meantime please adhere to Covid-19 restrictions and stay safe.
