Easter fun in Overtoun Park
Hundreds turn out for fun event
It may have been a week late but that did not stop nearly 300 people turning out at the Friends of Overtoun Park Easter event on Saturday.
An estimated 280 children and parents turned out to enjoy Easter egg painting, an egg hunt and Easter bonnet parade.
Tesco’s community champion Karen Jarvie was joined by Councillor Robert Brown in judging the competitions.
The weather stayed dry as the park group ticked off yet another fantastic event.
Elaine Devlin, from Friends of Overtoun Park, said: “It was a great day.
“The weather was lovely and despite the fact it was after Easter the turnout was really good.”
She added: “We want to say a big thanks to Tesco Burnside for providing the large Easter Eggs as prizes and to Karen Jarvie for judging. Thanks also to Councillor Robert Brown who took time off
