The Rutland Carers Group enjoyed an afternoon out at Gates Nursery in Cold Overton on Monday.
They spent the afternoon wandering around the nursery and also enjoyed lunch, which included sandwiches and a vast array of cakes and plenty of cups of tea.
It was a welcome break for many in the group who are the sole carer for their partner or child.
The Rutland Carers Group meets once a month in Oakham and is there to support those who care for another person in their family. To find out more about the group call Lisa Jackson on 01572 770324.
