Next Wee Blether

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations - Niki Ten­nant

Pa r ent s in the Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang area who have the gift of the gab are look­ing for­ward to the next ‘Wee Blether.’

The Cam­glen 21st Cen­tury Fam­i­lies Group, which was launched in 2011, en­cour­ages par­ents in the Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang area to get to­gether, net­work and swap ideas.

The group is host­ing its next ‘Wee Blether’ event at Ruther­glen Li­brary be­tween 1 and 4pm on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 19.

The event is aimed at par­ents with chil­dren aged up to eight, although ev­ery­one is in­vited to at­tend.

Part­ner agen­cies, such as Po­lice Scot­land, health char­i­ties and com­mu­nity and school-based or­gan­i­sa­tions are rep­re­sented at stalls at a Wee Blether get-to­gether.

“Peo­ple have told us at pre­vi­ous events that they did not re­alise how much there is go­ing on in the lo­cal area,” said home school part­ner­ship worker Karen Brodie.

“Un­til the Wee Blether, for ex­am­ple, many peo­ple thought li­braries were just for bor­row­ing books. They were not aware of the ex­tent of classes for chil­dren and things such as the her­itage cen­tre.”

Those who at­tended a pre­vi­ous Wee Blether event told 21st Cen­tury Fam­i­lies: “It is great to see so many en­thu­si­as­tic and knowl­edge­able peo­ple.”

Other com­ments in­clude: “Very in­for­ma­tive and well or­gan­ised,” and “Well done all part­ners for mak­ing our com­mu­nity bet­ter.”
