On charity aid
Charity and commerce will come together at the next meeting of the Local Business Network.
The event on Friday, March 11, will see Linda Oliver from social enterprise CamGlen Radio tell everyone about the newest radio station in the area as it approaches its first birthday.
She will be followed by guest speaker Jules McKim, from STV Children’s Appeal, who will also provide an insight into the work of the charity which provides funding to both of the Rutherglen and Cambuslang initiatives.
The business community is encouraged to support the charity at the event when David Collie Photography will be offering professional profile pictures in return for a £5 donation to the STV Children’s Appeal.
Held at the Burnside Hotel, the meeting will begin with tea and hot rolls at 9am and is expected to run until 11am. Overtoun Park will once again host some Easter fun for the people of Rutherglen on Saturday, March 26.
The Friends of Overtoun Park are holding their Easter Eggstravaganza event from 1-3pm at the bandstand.
The day will feature an Easter egg hunt ( 50p per entry), Easter egg painting and an Easter bonnet parade which will take place at 2.30pm. Also available will be ‘tattoos’ and face-painting ( 50p) and a bouncy castle (£1.50). The event is open to everyone but children must be accompanied by an adult.
In the event of poor weather, the event will be held in Stonelaw Parish Church.
