Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Friends of Holmhills Wood Com­mu­nity Park have been awarded al­most £600 from Pride of Place to plant 1000 bulbs.

The golden har­vest daf­fodils, red and pink tulips will be placed around the en­trances to the Com­mu­nity Park in Cam­bus­lang.

The bulbs were re­cently planted by South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s Land Ser­vices depart­ment on be­half of the Friends.

Michelle Farmer, chair of Friends of Holmhills Wood Com­mu­nity Park (a sub-group of Cam­bus­lang Com­mu­nity Coun­cil) said:“We are very grate­ful to Pride of Place for this award.

“When the flow­ers bloom in spring they will pro­vide a fab­u­lous Easter dis­play to wel­come peo­ple to the park.

“We have had a fan­tas­tic year with so many im­prove­ments to the Park – clear­ing veg­e­ta­tion, im­prov­ing paths, re­mov­ing litter and rub­ble, cut­ting back trees and bushes, pro­vid­ing new bins, build­ing a bug ho­tel and much more.”

Michelle says there has also been a big in­crease in peo­ple us­ing the park.

“We have big plans for next year too, and hav­ing 1000 new plants com­ing into flower in spring will give us a blooming mar­vel­lous start,”she said.
