Help out rail project

Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special -

Healthy n Happy Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Trust is look­ing for vol­un­teers to get in­volved in a new project based around lo­cals rail­ways.

The Rail 74 Com­mu­nity Rail Part­ner­ship cov­ers the line be­tween Ruther­glen and Hamil­ton, in­clud­ing the Cam­bus­lang and New­ton sta­tions.

Com­mu­nity rail is the sup­port of rail­way lines and sta­tions by lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions.

A post on the Healthy n Happy Face­book page this week read: “Do you have some spare time? Are you look­ing for a new project? About to re­tire with not enough to do? Want to ex­pand your friends net­work?

“The Rail 74 Com­mu­nity Rail Part­ner­ship are look­ing to re­cruit some more vol­un­teers from the com­mu­ni­ties along the line from Ruther­glen to Hamil­ton Cen­tral, in­clud­ing Cam­bus­lang, New­ton, Blan­tyre and Hamil­ton West.

“We want to help the com­mu­ni­ties linked by the rail­way, work­ing with lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions to gen­er­ate po­ten­tial lo­cal ben­e­fits through com­mu­nity- led projects, by means of the com­mu­nity rail part­ner­ship.

“We need com­mu­ni­ty­minded peo­ple who wish to get in­volved as ev­ery­one has a skill that they can use; com­mu­nity ac­tivists, main­te­nance, gar­den­ing, ad­min, art skills, the list is end­less.”
