Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Win­ter may be on its way but the Friends of Over­toun Park in Ruther­glen are al­ready look­ing ahead to next spring.

The group will be bulb plant­ing, lit­ter-pick­ing and host­ing au­tumn arts and crafts for chil­dren at their Perk up the Park event on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 24, from 1-3pm.

They are invit­ing mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to come along with a trowel to help them beau­tify the park.

Lit­ter-pick­ers and bulbs will be pro­vided, along with free re­fresh­ments for those will­ing to dig in.

The Friends of Over­toun Park are ex­tremely grate­ful for the on­go­ing sup­port from Karen Jarvie, Com­mu­nity Cham­pion at Tesco Burn­side, who will be pro­vid­ing a team of store staff to help pre­pare the ground as well as sup­ply­ing some free bulbs.

Any­one in­ter­ested in go­ing along will re­ceive a warm welcome and should meet at the Vic­to­ria Foun­tain. All chil­dren must be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult.
