Rutherglen Reformer - - Chef’s Corner - Staff re­porter

An or­gan­i­sa­tion of­fer­ing sup­port to those who have lost a loved one is now meet­ing in Cam­bus­lang ev­ery week.

The Cam­bus­lang Be­reave­ment Sup­port Group have de­cided to meet once a week rather than the cur­rent set-up of the first and third Wed­nes­day of each month.

Since be­ing set up two years ago, the group have helped dozens of lo­cal peo­ple come to terms with the death of a fam­ily mem­ber or friend.

Co-or­di­na­tor Iso­bel Allan MBE said: “We of­fer lis­ten­ing and sup­port ser­vices and this will make it eas­ier for peo­ple to drop in so we can pro­vide a safe venue for peo­ple to be able to talk about those they loved, whether it’s from the present or the past.”

The group meet be­tween 10am and 12pm in the Mor­ri­son Room of Cam­bus­lang Parish Church in Arnott Way ev­ery Wed­nes­day, but Iso­bel is keen to point out they are not a church group.

She said: “You do not have to haeve a church con­nec­tion to come along.

“It is very in­for­mal and con­fi­den­tial.

“Peo­ple need a safe space, es­pe­cially when they are very vul­ner­a­ble.”
