Hamilton Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Robert Mitchell

Hun­dreds of peo­ple gath­ered to en­joy all the fun of Fairhill at the week­end.

The area’s an­nual fun day fea­tured a range of at­trac­tions such as a Boo­gie Bus, a Club­ber­cise class, a ma­gi­cian and lots of fun for young­sters in­clud­ing a bouncy slide and face paint­ing.

Hun­dreds of peo­ple headed to Fairhill last Satur­day to en­joy the area’s an­nual fun day.

Now in its sixth year, the event was again a great suc­cess.

A bunch of ded­i­cated res­i­dents first teamed up with Com­mu­nity Links (South La­nark­shire) in 2013 to put to­gether a packed pro­gramme at Fairhill Life­styles Cen­tre.

Heather Robert­son, Fairhill com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment worker, said: “What an amaz­ing day. It was great to see so many peo­ple come along and sup­port the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“We are so proud of the Fairhill Com­mu­nity Group and ev­ery­thing they have achieved this year. All their hard work has paid off as the fun fay was an­other huge suc­cess.

“Thank you to ev­ery­one who came along, we hope you all en­joyed it!”

At­trac­tions in­cluded an owl, a ma­gi­cian, a club­ber­cise class, Uni­ver­sal Con­nec­tion’s Boo­gie Bus, vis­its from Scot­tish Fire and Po­lice Scot­land and loads of stalls.
