Carrondale Residents Celebrate 21st Anniversary of Falkirk Wheel in Style
In a heartwarming tribute to the 21st Anniversary of the Falkirk Wheel, residents of Carrondale Care Home experienced a day filled with joy, camaraderie, and unexpected delights. The event, organised in collaboration with Cycling Without Age Scotland SCIO (a charity that works closely with Carrondale), was not only a celebration of this iconic landmark but also a meaningful culmination of a sponsored cycle in memory of the late ‘Stormin Norman’ Ridley.
The outing provided Carrondale residents with more than just a scenic day at the Falkirk Wheel; it became an opportunity to connect with old friends and make new ones. The atmosphere was filled with laughter, shared stories, and a sense of community spirit as everyone came together to mark this special occasion.
While the Falkirk Wheel’s 21st Anniversary was a significant milestone in itself, the day’s true highlight was the adorable presence of Tony, a 13-week-old Billy goat. Residents, team members, and volunteers alike found immense joy in interacting with this charming addition to the celebration.
The event demonstrated the power of community, remembrance, and the simple joys of unexpected encounters. Carrondale residents not only celebrated a historic landmark but also created lasting memories, proving that sometimes, it’s the small, delightful moments that make an outing truly special.
