Rain couldn’t stop the Easter fun for Friends
Poor weather failed to dampen the enthusiasm of those who turned out for Friends of Overtoun Park’s ‘Easter Egg-stravaganza’.
More than 200 people turned out for the event, which moved indoors to Stonelaw Parish Church as the rain fell.
Children had lots of fun with face painting and egg painting, tombola, a bouncy castle and an Easter bonnet competition judged by Councillor Robert Brown and Karen Jarvie from Tesco Burnside.
The winners were Olivia Harris, 4, Sophia Leonard, 3, Lewis Tawse, 6, and Erin Tervit, 10.
In the egg paint i n g competition, the victors were Emily Vint, 7, Caitlin McMullen, 10 and Emer Devlin, 9.
Stuart Forsyth, Friends of Overtoun Park secretary, said: “There was a great turnout for this event and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
“We’re grateful for the support and interest in the events we hold in the park.”
