Our Place has fun and games

Rutherglen Reformer - - Health Matters - Kenny Smith

Spring­hall and Whit­law­burn have been brought to­gether, thanks to a five-year lot­tery grant.

Healthy ‘n’ Happy Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Trust re­cently cel­e­brated the of­fi­cial launch of the Our Place pro­gramme, a five year con­tract awarded by Big Lot­tery Fund.

Lots of fun was had by over 100 lo­cal res­i­dents in the con­nect­ing tun­nels of Spring­hall and Whitl­waburn, and they cel­e­brated by don­ning fancy dress for the oc­ca­sion.

All en­joyed treats, games, mu­sic and lots of other ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing the op­por­tu­nity to learn more about the Our Place pro­gramme.

A spokesman for Healthy ‘ n’ Happy said: “Our Place is a re­ally ex­cit­ing place based ini­tia­tive which aims to em­power lo­cal peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions to bring about a mas­sive and last­ing pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence to their neigh­bour­hoods.

“This ex­tends and com­ple­ments our ex­ist­ing work in Spring­hall and Whit­law­burn, de­liv­ered in part­ner­ship with South La­nark­shire Coun­cil, fo­cus­ing on how we can make our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties a bet­ter place.”
