Friends join forces for park clean up

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The Friends of Cam­bus­lang Park were clean and green at the week­end.

Adults and child vol­un­teers gath­ered at the Cairns Road en­trance on Satur­day, and were de­lighted by the fact they were able to tidy up and plant bulbs on a warm, dry day.

They helped get ar­eas of the park into shape, to en­cour­age more vis­i­tors to go there over the sum­mer months.

Chair­man Ed­ward Cais said:“We had a beau­ti­ful af­ter­noon for it.

“We were joined by the Brown­ies, who turned out in force and with­out whom we would not have man­aged. They did a great job of the plant­ing be­fore spread­ing out all over the park to pick up lit­ter.

“In both ways they are help­ing to make the park a nicer place for ev­ery­one, and what bet­ter way to im­prove the en­vi­ron­ment than to start at home.

“It is grat­i­fy­ing for any­one in­volved in plant­ing one year to see what they have planted com­ing up the fol­low­ing year.”

One of the vol­un­teers was Cam­bus­lang West coun­cil­lor Richard Tul­lett.

He added:“The Friends of the Cam­bus­lang Park do such a great job at both pro­mot­ing and tak­ing care of the park.

“It was great to go along to their park clean up and spring plant­ing at the week­end and I would en­cour­age ev­ery­one to sup­port the events that are planned in the sum­mer months.”
