It’s welcome re­lief for group

Pro­tes­tors en­joy fit­ness work­out

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Kenny Smith

Pro­tes­tors against the new road through Cathkin and Fern­hill have been en­joy­ing some welcome re­lief of their own.

Since it was an­nounced that South La­nark­shire Coun­cil planned to build the Cathkin Re­lief Road, res­i­dents in the area have been ac­tively cam­paign­ing against the plans.

Tracy Cham­bers, from Ruther­glen, has been tak­ing fit­camp ses­sions for the group, giv­ing them the chance to ex­er­cise to­gether.

These ses­sions are tak­ing place ev­ery Wed­nes­day evening.

Tracy said: “It came about af­ter one of the pro­tes­tors, Gill Gor­wan, got in touch, to ask if I would like to take some ex­er­cise classes for them in the park.

“It’s a re­ally lovely bit of ground and it’s such a shame that the coun­cil want to build a road through it.

“So far, we’ve had some pretty good turnouts, through word of mouth, hav­ing about 20 peo­ple along so far.

“It’s gone re­ally well, with a mix­ture of ages com­ing along, and ev­ery­one’s re­ally en­joyed the chance to get out into the park, and get the chance to so­cialise to­gether, which is great.”

The group meets in the park each Wed­nes­day at 7.30pm. It’s free, but at­ten­dees can pay £2 for a re­cov­ery ses­sion with Tracy af­ter­wards.
