The Friends of Cam­bus­lang Park have got their 2015 sched­ule of events un­der­way.

They have a wide and var­ied pro­gramme of events lined up for the year, with the re­turn of many old favourites, and some new ones too.

It all kicked off with a chance to meet the South La­nark­shire rangers at the park, where there were quizzes, ac­tiv­i­ties and scav­enger hunts for the young­sters.

Friends chair­man Ed­ward Cais said: “The weather was glo­ri­ous for our dropin na­ture event.

“Sev­eral chil­dren and adults came along to an­swer na­ture quizzes and iden­tify an­i­mals from cards placed in the flower beds around the main Cairns Road en­trance.”

The park will be busy again this Satur­day, May 9, with their spring clean event tak­ing place.

Ed­ward said: “Our next event will be the spring clean-up and plant­ing on Satur­day, from 2-4pm.

“We shall gather at the main Cairns Road en­trance where ev­ery­one will be wel­comed, sup­plied with equip­ment and given in­struc­tions. Ev­ery­one is wel­come to at­tend.

“There is plenty to be done if you want to con­trib­ute to mak­ing the park an even bet­ter place to visit.

“Please come dressed ap­pro­pri­ately, as if you were go­ing to the park for an adventure!”
