Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special - Dou­glas Dickie

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.”
