Day-long festival of good fun
Jeely Piece jam-packed
The organisers of a fun day in Castlemilk have hailed the event as a success at bringing the community together.
The event featured rides, stalls, face painting, football tournaments and loads of other activities taking place and, despite overcast skies, saw a healthy turnout.
Alasdair Irving, one of the organisers, said: “Events like these are essential to bring a community together.
“As the majority of events are totally free, everyone can enjoy them and it was great to see everyone out and enjoying themselves.
“Castlemilk has a long tradition of holding an annual summer fair and it is great to be part of one so we are looking forward to next year’s fun day already.
“It was great to see the whole community come together and enjoy themselves. “It was a cracking atmosphere.” There was a busy programme of events lined up on the day.
Alasdair added: “There were pony rides, a mini-zoo, a bucking bronco, a gladiator duel, a craft fair, a bouncy castle, a face painter, a Southside Fringe musician, a BBQ, a football cage and an exhibition from the British Transport Police at the shopping centre.
“There were activity stalls, bungee trampolines, clowns, a tombola and performances from the local dance group JAK Dance, Ned Zeppelin and other local youth acts at the community centre. The library had a pet exhibition and a choir while the youth complex had a disco.
“Glasgow Life had bowling, a BBQ, a football tournament and fun sessions with inflatables at the pool.
“The Jeely Piece Club had arts and crafts, soft play and a bouncy castle.
“The day really was jam-packed full of fun events.”
