Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang area com­mit­tee has‘granted’mem­bers of a lo­cal com­mu­nity a night at the mu­si­cals.

St Cadoc’s Women’s Guild was re­cently awarded a £250 com­mu­nity grant to enjoy a the­atre out­ing at Ruther­glen Town Hall.

The group, which meets reg­u­larly in St Cadoc’s Church hall, pro­vides a hub for older res­i­dents in the Cam­bus­lang and Half­way ar­eas to come to­gether so­cially.

Coun­cil­lor Rus­sell Clearie and Coun­cil­lor Richard Tul­lett, chair and de­pute chair of the com­mit­tee, went along to a meet­ing re­cently to hand over the‘big cheque’.

Coun­cil­lor Clearie said:“I am al­ways de­lighted to come along to groups like this and give out funds for a night out or day trip.

“For so many in our com­mu­ni­ties, th­ese events pro­vide a so­cial life­line im­prov­ing qual­ity of life and de­creas­ing lone­li­ness and iso­la­tion.

“A good night out with friends can make such a dif­fer­ence and I am proud that we can play a part in making that hap­pen.”
