Ru­ral told of city land­marks

East Kilbride News - - NEWS -

Jack­ton SWI pres­i­dent Agnes Strang wel­comed mem­bers to their lat­est meet­ing.

The speak­ers for the evening were Tom Marchant and his wife Josette, who gave a very in­ter­est­ing and in­for­ma­tive il­lus­trated talk on the Glas­gow bridges, with Josette talk­ing through her ferry trip from Glas­gow to Brae­head.

Tom started off his his­tor­i­cal trail walk at the Dal­marnock Bridge then went over an­other 20 bridges in Glas­gow.

He took in im­por­tant land­marks all over Glas­gow from days gone by.

This in­cluded the busy ship­yards and how the Glas­gow Gar­den Fes­ti­val had pro­moted the city 30 years ago. Tom said he was sorry that the gar­dens had not been main­tained so that the peo­ple of Glas­gow could still be en­joy­ing them to­day.

Katy Oliver gave a very well de­served vote of thanks.

The com­pe­ti­tion for a ruler was won by Agnes Strang and sec­ond place went to Jean Shearer.
