Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

Calder­wood Pri­mary re­cently hosted their sum­mer fair, or­gan­ised by the school’s par­ent coun­cil.

De­spite some bad weather on the day the fair proved a hit with lo­cals who went along, while Coun­cil­lor Robert Brown and MP Mar­garet Ferrier stopped by as well.

It helped raise a whop­ping £4800 for the school too.

The par­ent coun­cil’s Clare Rose thought the day was a sum­mer stun­ner, de­spite the weather.

She said: “Even the wind and rain couldn’t dampen the Calder­wood spirit.

“We were still de­ter­mined to put on a fun day for all who came and come they did.

“Thank you to all the peo­ple who came along to our fair and helped us raise the fan­tas­tic sum of £4800.

“We were over­whelmed at the turn out in spite of the weather. All of the money raised helps en­hance the learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence of each and ev­ery child at Calder­wood Pri­mary School.

“Thank you also to the many lo­cal busi­nesses, par­ents, grand­par­ents, friends and fam­ily who very gen­er­ously gave do­na­tions to help us raise such a great to­tal on the day, and a spe­cial thank you to Coun­cil­lor Robert Brown and MP Mar­garet Ferrier who took the time to pay us a visit.”
