Council staff praised for improving school entrance
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.
