Fun day ends hols

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Fam­i­lies in Whit­law­burn are be­ing in­vited to mark the end of sum­mer hol­i­days with a free fam­ily fun day to­mor­row, Thurs­day.

Or­gan­ised by The Young Ones Youth Club, the event in­cludes a rodeo bull, bouncy cas­tles for chil­dren and tod­dlers, adult and child sumo suits and five-a-side foot­ball tour­na­ment, run by Utd Sports.

Young­sters can also get their faces painted and have their pic­ture taken along­side their heroes in­clud­ing Spi­der Man, Darth Vadar and Mickey and Min­nie Mouse.

Kick­ing off at noon at Whit­law­burn Com­mu­nity Re­source Cen­tre, all ac­tiv­i­ties at the event are free and have been funded via a grant from South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s Par­tic­i­pa­tory Bud­get.

Michael Hall, of Uni­ver­sal Con­nec­tions, which runs the youth club, said: “This is to round off the kids sum­mer hol­i­days and the weekly trips which we have been tak­ing 20 or more chil­dren on from the start of the sum­mer.

“It will bring the whole com­mu­nity to­gether, peo­ple of all ages, in­clud­ing the chil­dren’s fam­i­lies and friends, who wouldn’t nor­mally be at the youth club.

“There is no cost at all to any­one wish­ing to come along and take part be­tween mid­day and 4pm.”

Com­mu­nity groups in­clud­ing CamGlen Ra­dio, Healthy n’ Happy and Re­volve Up­cy­cle cloth­ing will also be there to show the com­mu­nity what they do to sup­port lo­cal peo­ple and also the en­vi­ron­ment.

The fun day will be fol­lowed by a wrestling ex­trav­a­ganza as Michael has booked the Reck­less In­tent wrestling team to do a live wrestling show from 6pm to 8.30pm.
