Coun­cil needs new faces

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

The or­gan­i­sa­tion re­spon­si­ble for voic­ing the views of Ruther­glen res­i­dents has is­sued a re­newed call for new mem­bers.

Ruther­glen Com­mu­nity Coun­cil is seek­ing new mem­bers to sit on the com­mit­tee which en­sures the in­ter­ests of lo­cal peo­ple are heard by agen­cies such as South La­nark­shire Coun­cil, the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment, po­lice and health boards.

Nom­i­na­tion forms for pro­posed new mem­bers must be sub­mit­ted to South La­nark­shire on or be­fore Novem­ber 3.

At a meet­ing of the com­mu­nity coun­cil last week ex­ist­ing mem­bers said they hoped at least two new peo­ple would be elected on to the coun­cil at its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing on Novem­ber 8.

The coun­cil also said it is keen to forge stronger links with ex­ist­ing groups in Ruther­glen and will look at the pos­si­bil­ity of host­ing an open night once a year when all these groups could be brought to­gether to share their ex­pe­ri­ences and am­bi­tions for the fu­ture of the town.
