Bloom­ing gen­er­ous do­na­tion for Burn­side

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Burn­side In Bloom re­ceived a dose of Christ­mas cheer after a gen­er­ous do­na­tion from a lo­cal business.

Burn­side marked the be­gin­ning of the fes­tive sea­son on De­cem­ber 5, as the Christ­mas Tree placed at the cor­ner of Grey­stone Av­enue and Stonelaw Road was lit up.

Coun­cil­lor Rus­sell Clearie was jovial master of cer­e­monies at the now an­nual light­ing cer­e­mony, which was at­tended by quite a few res­i­dents de­spite the weather!

A good turn out of pupils of Stonelaw High School sang car­ols led by their mu­sic teacher Mr Gary Kelly.

Re­fresh­ments and hot snacks were gen­er­ously pro­vided by Tesco Burn­side, Café In­dia and Papa Johns.

Fosters fu­neral direc­tors made a do­na­tion of £350 to Burn­side In Bloom, an off­shoot of Burn­side Com­mu­nity Coun­cil, to cover the cost of the Christ­mas Tree.

Burn­side In Bloom group was es­tab­lished to im­prove Burn­side through the plant­ing of green­ery.

Group mem­ber Lu­cille McNab said:“A big thanks to Fosters Fu­neral Direc­tors for this kind do­na­tion.”

The com­mu­nity group have an­nounced de­tails of their an­nual gala day, with the theme this year be­ing a take on highly popular re­al­ity TV show Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent.

The event will take place on Satur­day, May 30 at Stonelaw Woods.
