Brilliant fun at
Caught on camera ... hundreds turn
Friends of Cambuslang Park were celebrating after another fantastic family fun day.
The weather held all day for the event, which took place in Cambuslang Park on Saturday, August 13.
And our photographer was there to make sure all the fun was caught on camera.
Hundreds of residents came out to enjoy the free activities on offer.
These included Welsh pony rides, Shetland ponies, the Bunny and Co petting zoo, face painting, hair spraying and a variety of stalls such as tombola, raffle, new and used goods, books and DVDs.
Inflatables were provided - a ladder and slide for the tiny tots, bouncy castle for other small children and a gladiators podium for the bigger ones.
Project 31 were there once again with a crafts stall and Friends said they owe them a special thank you for their constant support of the group over the years.
Ian Cox wandered through the crowds, delighting the children with his balloon creations and for all ages there was a pound fit session with Christine in the multi-use games area.
The Friends’ home baking stall courtesy of vice-chairperson, Meg Sloan, and the hot dogs and drinks stall did a roaring trade as usual while many tried their luck on the coconut shy.
South Lanarkshire Council’s community warden service were represented at the event. These are the people who work with Police Scotland’s local community policing team, South Lanarkshire Council’s local parks manager and the Friends to make Cambuslang Park a safe and welcoming place for the benefit of the community.
Representatives from Healthy’n’Happy were out in force in the form of CamGlen Radio, Dr Bike from CamGlen Bike Town and a stall highlighting their community arts and mental health work.
A team from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service fire station at Clydesmill brought a pump which children always love climbing into and ‘driving’.
Friends of Cambuslang Park chairman, Edward Cais, said: “We missed Archie Durie’s boxing ring due to a family bereavement, so we would wish to send our condolences to him and his family at this sad time.
“It was good to have councillors Russell Clearie, Pam Clearie and Richard Tullett come along to lend their support to the event.
“Thank you to Morrisons for the water they supplied for the hot and cold drinks and thank you to Farm Foods for the gift voucher.”
