Fun times in the Army

Kids en­joy hol­i­day club

Rutherglen Reformer - - Front Page - Johnathan Ged­des

The Sal­va­tion Army held a fun day at their King Street hall last week.

Plenty of lo­cal young­sters turned out and they were clearly hav­ing a great time.

Ma­jor Morag Watkins of the Sal­va­tion Army was de­lighted with how the day had gone.

She said: “It went very well and we had quite a lot of chil­dren who were very en­thu­si­as­tic.

“There was a bouncy cas­tle, skittles to knock over, a tuck shop and games where you are throw­ing fris­bees on to a mat.

“We also had a face-paint­ing stall that was very pop­u­lar with the chil­dren.

“There was an area for the smaller chil­dren to play in with games suited to them.

“Patch the dog also vis­ited them. Patch is al­ways very pop­u­lar with the chil­dren and ev­ery­one was hav­ing an ex­cel­lent time.”

Last week the Re­former told how Morag and her hus­band, Ma­jor Mike Watkins, are set to re­tire from their du­ties at the char­ity at the end of this year.

The cou­ple have been based in Ruther­glen for the past two-and-a-half years and plan to move to Lin­coln once they have re­tired.
