Formed in 1996 by the Association of Bearsden Churches, The Way Ahead Group is for people of all ages and faiths who are recovering after a stroke.

Members are able to meet with others in a similar situation, to share experiences and to take part in exercise under the guidance of two qualified physiotherapists.

The Way Ahead Group meets weekly on Thursdays at 1.15pm in the Main Hall of Killermont Parish Church, Bearsden.

A team of 70-80 volunteers, from the local community as well as churches, help with transport and the smooth running of the Club.

Outings are also arranged in Summer and at Christmas.

During the afternoon sessions at Killermont, members can take part in group exercises; and some individual treatment is available too.

Refreshments and delicious home baking are provided to complete the afternoon’s activity.


Prospective new members are first assessed by Sister Dorward, recently retired as Stroke Liaison Sister, Glasgow Western Infirmary Stroke Unit.

For further details contact either Mrs Anne Wightman: 942 4052 or Mary Munro: 942 7961

Some typical meetings of the Group are shown below, with a variety of different activities, entertainment and afternoon tea provided for all to enjoy.
