Rutherglen Reformer - - Front Page - Dou­glas Dickie

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
