Fun fair and big bucks for group

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Half­way Com­mu­nity Coun­cil found them­selves quids in when they re­ceived a gen­er­ous gift last week.

The group were handed a do­na­tion of £500 from Al­lan New­some of the Show­man’s Guild.

Al­lan had been part of the fun fair that ar­rived in Half­way Park re­cently, which was en­joyed by many lo­cal peo­ple.

Com­mu­nity coun­cil mem­ber Jackie Rinn said:“The com­mu­nity coun­cil sup­ported the fun fair com­ing to the com­mu­nity of Half­way and sur­round­ing ar­eas be­cause we have not had much in the way of com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties due to the lack of fa­cil­i­ties.

“We would be happy to sup­port Al­lan New­some for any fu­ture events within the area and we would also like to thank Al­lan for his kind do­na­tion of £500.”
