Go­ing loopy for lunch

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations - Dou­glas Dickie

Ruther­glen res­i­dents are be­ing in­vited to en­joy their lunch at Cuningar Loop this week­end.

For­est En­ter­prise Scot­land will host their Big Lunch event on Sun­day, June 12.

Fam­i­lies and the lo­cal com­mu­nity are en­cour­aged to pack a pic­nic and en­joy a day out at the newly opened wood­land park.

Ac­tiv­i­ties will in­clude sto­ry­telling with Golden Frog and his friends and self-led trea­sure hunts through the for­est, with clues to help peo­ple learn about the trees, plants and an­i­mals that live in the park.

Fore s t E nt e r p r i s e Scot­land’s com­mu­nity ranger, Eilidh Mal­colm, said: “We’ve re­ceived such great sup­port from the lo­cal com­mu­nity that we hope ev­ery­one comes along and joins in the day and gets to know their neigh­bours a bit more. It will be a great way for us to get to know our vis­i­tors a bit more too.

“Cuningar Loop is all about bring­ing the com­mu­nity to­gether which re­flects what the Big Lunch is all about.

“I t ’s the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for us to get in­volved with such a great pro­ject. We’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing ev­ery­one.”

Fam­i­lies who for­get a lunch can en­joy some food at the The Wee Cabin café on the site.

Cel­e­brat­ing its sev­enth year, the Big Lunch en­cour­ages com­mu­ni­ties to come to­gether in their streets, gar­dens or com­mu­nity spa­ces to have lunch with their neigh­bours.

Ac­cess to Cuningar Loop is from Down­iebrae Road in Ruther­glen.
