Rutherglen Reformer - - CAMBUSLANG PARK'S FUN DAY - Jonathan Ged­des

Face-paint­ing, toast­ing marsh­mal­lows, owls and chain­saw carv­ing were just some of the ac­tiv­i­ties at Castlemilk Park’s Fam­ily Fun­day.

The event with­stood some bad weather, with around 400 peo­ple stop­ping by. Claire Mal­pas, re­gen­er­a­tion man­ager at Cas­sil­toun Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, was de­lighted by the day.

She said:“We were a bit wor­ried when we saw the weather, but ev­ery­one braved it out - I was down by where we were toast­ing marsh­mal­lows, and there was a lot of peo­ple who took part in it.

“I think some of the par­ents were en­joy­ing the marsh­mal­lows more than the kids!

“We had a chain­saw carver as well, who proved pop­u­lar, and there was a chance to see the owls, who are al­ways a hit.

“There was arts and crafts, pup­pet shows by For­est Crea­tures, sto­ry­telling by the Vil­lage Sto­ry­telling Cen­tre and some face-paint­ing - one of our staff got his like the Hulk, and had to drive home like that!

“These events are im­por­tant be­cause they show what Castlemilk is re­ally like. We had some fa­mil­iar faces there but also plenty of new peo­ple too.”
