Group’s move to im­prove

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Res­i­dents in Burn­side still have time to make their views on the fu­ture of Dou­glas Av­enue Park in High Burn­side.

Burn­side in Bloom are look­ing for ideas to help im­prove the fa­cil­ity, which in­cludes a play area and equip­ment.

Sec­re­tary Mal­colm Pig­gott said: “We’ve had quite a lot of in­ter­est.

“The wee park is down on its heels a bit when you com­pare it to the likes of Over­toun Park, which is a model we have looked at.

“I was brought up near it and a lot of peo­ple in the group go through it with their grand­chil­dren.

“The play equip­ment is very old, it is not ad­e­quate and it doesn’t re­ally ex­cite any­one.”

In­ter­ested par­ties can email Mal­colm on mal­colm. pig­got@ ntl­world. com or leave com­ments on the Burn­side in Bloom web­site, www. burn­sid­ein­bloom. word­press.com.
