Fun for all in Burnside
Bowling club event brings out the community
The dog days of summer were certainly at Castlemilk Park recently.
The park was holding a doggie day, welcoming all types of canines to have a barking good time.
Around 120 people turned up with their pets for an afternoon of fun at the latest event in the summer series of activities being organised by Cassiltoun Housing Association.
Community woodland officer Richard Bolton was pleased at the turnout on the day, despite some bad weather earlier in the week.
He said: “It was a great wee day, and we had a good turnout, which came despite the bad weather we’d had, particularly the previous day.
“We really wanted to encourage people to be responsible in looking after their dogs, and to have a bit of fun while they were doing it.
“There were a lot of different breeds of dogs brought along on the day, which was good to see, and we gave out various awards on the day .
“There was the dog with the waggiest tail, leave the sausage, best rescue dog, best dog that was being looked after by a child and lots of other ones.”
The next event at the park will come on Wednesday, August 5, when a family fun day will be held.
There will be storytelling, arts and crafts and magicians, among other activities and games on the day.
It’ll take place from noon through until 3.30pm. Entry free.
