Coun­cil staff praised for im­prov­ing school en­trance

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Coun­cil staff have been thanked for their work in im­prov­ing the en­trance to Cathkin High School.

The site, which is also home to Ruther­glen High School and the Cathkin Com­mu­nity Nurs­ery, had re­ceived crit­i­cism from lo­cal res­i­dents af­ter be­com­ing hugely over­grown.

Cam­bus­lang woman Michelle Farmer con­tacted the lo­cal au­thor­ity’s Ian McCaig, who is re­spon­si­ble for look­ing af­ter coun­cil grounds, and was de­lighted with the work that has been car­ried out over the last week by parks staff.

In a let­ter to the coun­cil, Michelle said:“The en­trance grounds and sur­round­ing ar­eas are look­ing good af­ter a much needed cut back. I would like to ex­press my sin­cere grat­i­tude to you and your staff for all your ef­forts. It is very much ap­pre­ci­ated.

“Thank you for com­mu­ni­cat­ing to the rel­e­vant de­part­ments within the coun­cil to make this pos­i­tive change to the lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment. I am sure that the teach­ing staff at all three ed­u­ca­tion es­tab­lish­ments, par­ents, pupils and lo­cal res­i­dents no­ticed the pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence as they re­turned to school yes­ter­day.

“I plan to con­tact the man­ag­ing direc­tor of Barratt to clean up the area be­low the newly built houses as it is full of trees that they have cut back, bricks and fallen fences. Hope­fully they will re­spond and clean up that part of the area.”

Michelle also hopes to work with the schools and nurs­ery on de­vel­op­ing the ex­te­rior of the grounds, and have an iden­ti­fy­ing sign placed there to iden­tify the learn­ing cam­pus.
