Help is at hand
This young pup got a helping hand as he took part in the sack race at the Particip8 Overtoun Gala Day in Halfway.
Although the event had to moved inside due to weather, it didn’t detract from the fun, as over 200 people turned out for the festivities.
Locals flocked to Halfway as Particip8 Overtoun held their annual funday on Saturday.
The day was held at the fields at North Halfway Community Hall.
There was a variety of events for people to enjoy, including a petting zoo, padded sumo wrestling, face painting, a climbing wall, the Universal Connections Bogie Bus, a skateboard ramp as well as other games and races. There were also a number of stalls at the event. CamGlen Radio were also present and MCed the event.
Wet and windy weather meant the festivities had to be moved in to the hall at 2pm, but that didn’t detract from the fun.
Jim Walker, of Particip8 Overtoun, helped organise the event and said: “The weather wasn’t ideal, but everyone still had a good time.
“We had to dismantle the stage and get all the stuff inside, which took a lot of effort, but we managed it, thanks to help from South Lanarkshire Council’s officers.
“We had over 200 people attending, which was a great turn out. We had a lot of stuff on as well, so that was good.
“I’d like to thank Greggs, Morrisons and South Lanarkshire Council for all their help with this event.”
Particp8 Overton was set up three years ago after the council took advantage of the Scottish Government’s Participatory budget.
