Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Castlemilk Park was blessed with some good weather as they held their fam­ily fun day last week.

Lo­cals headed down to the park for a busy pro­gramme of ac­tiv­i­ties that in­cluded marsh­mal­lows, car­ni­val games, face paint­ing, a magic shows, arts and crafts, an ap­pear­ance by owls and a per­for­mance from Chico the clown.

Many of the fun things on of­fer were linked to wood­craft, mean­ing that the vis­i­tors were learn­ing all about the park while they were there, too.

Richard Bolton, Com­mu­nity Wood­land Of­fi­cer with Cas­sil­toun Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, was pleased with how the day had gone - not least be­cause it stayed dry!

He said: “We had a busy turnout with a lot of peo­ple in at­ten­dance.

“We’ve had trou­ble with bad weather this sum­mer, mean­ing we had to post­pone our dog­gie day ear­lier in the month.

“So it was nice to get a day where the sun was out!

“Ev­ery­one seemed to en­joy them­selves.”
