group that gives en­vi­ron­men­tal awards of up to £5000 to help im­prove the area.

She said:”If you look at the en­trance to the schools and nurs­ery, it’s re­ally not the nicest of things to look at.

“Hope­fully, by ap­proach­ing Pride of Place, and by work­ing with Cathkin High, Ruther­glen High and the nurs­ery, we’ll be able to get some­thing done.

“When you look at other new schools that have been build around the west of Scot­land, you see some re­ally nice brick en­trances with nice signs on them, and that’s some­thing that’s re­ally lack­ing here.

“I know it costs money and there’s not a lot of that around just now, but hope­fully if peo­ple come to­gether from var­i­ous ar­eas, we can work to­gether and get some­thing done.”

Michelle hopes that res­i­dents liv­ing in the area will want to dig in to help im­prove their lo­cale, and asked them to get in touch with her.

She added: “We’ve got a re­ally nice area here, that just needs a bit of TLC, and it could look fan­tas­tic. If you buy a house here, you want the area to be as good as it can be, and if a few of us get to­gether, we could work and make it even bet­ter.”
