Grow­ing de­sire to visit al­lot­ments

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Green-fin­gered res­i­dents in Cam­bus­lang were in­vited along to see the work of a com­mu­nity project re­cently.

Cam­bus­lang Al­lot­ment Gar­dens held an open day at their base in the Eva Bur­rows Cen­tre.

Politi­cians and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Cam­bus­lang Com­mu­nity Coun­cil were among those who took ad­van­tage of the sunny weather to have a look at the work go­ing on.

The group had re­cently re­ceived an award from the Post­code Lottery and were keen to show off what they had done with the money.

Sec­re­tary of the group, Gil­lian Cahill, said: “It was a great day. The chil­dren had a ball and got to plant some flow­ers and seeds.”

The group ac­tu­ally have a wait­ing list for mem­bers. They also run tu­to­ri­als and will take a stall at next month’s Sum­mer­fest cel­e­bra­tions.
