Community gets together for day of fun in the sun
Coatbridge residents turned out in huge numbers for Saturday’s Festival Day.
Hundreds took advantage of the good weather and enjoyed the festivities and attractions at the town centre event which is organised by Coatbridge community forum.
And organisations including Citizens’ Advice Bureau, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue, Asda, Tesco, St Andrew’s Hospice, Town Centre Activities, H& C Attractions and Routes to Work promoted their themes and campaigns, ranging from safety in the community to healthy eating.
Fool On Support, Reeltime Music, Dance Studio and NL Leisure were also on hand to entertain.
Coatbridge South councillor Gordon Encinias said: “The festival was a great success. The children and families of Coatbridge made the most of the facilities and information services on offer.
“A special thanks to those organisations and volunteers who contributed! We look forward to hosting an even bigger and better festival next year.”
