Neigh­bour­hood makeover

Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special - Mur­ray Spooner

The peo­ple of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are be­ing urged to nom­i­nate their com­mu­nity for a well-de­served makeover.

A search is on to find the com­mu­nity in the UK that is most in need of a help­ing hand which will see a lu­cra­tive re­gen­er­a­tion project com­mence.

In the past few months res­i­dents have crit­i­cised the look of Cam­bus­lang Main Street and Spring­hall res­i­dents say the area is in need of ma­jor in­vest­ment.

And mem­bers of the pub­lic in both towns have been given the chance to sub­mit de­tails of an area which de­serves a makeover.

Michael Holton, brand man­ager for Wall’s Pas­try, who are run­ning the ini­tia­tive, said:“There are a num­ber of ar­eas within ev­ery com­mu­nity that have a strong stand­ing to peo­ple of all ages how­ever, are of­ten ex­pen­sive or dif­fi­cult to main­tain.

“We’re keen to lend a help­ing hand and dis­cover what ar­eas could re­ally ben­e­fit res­i­dents and make a real dif­fer­ence to lo­cals by a bit of TLC. It could even be a lo­cal hero, some­one who makes a dif­fer­ence day in day out that de­serves some­thing back.”

The win­ning project will see the ren­o­va­tion pro­gramme take place over a pe­riod of five days by a team of‘handy helpers’.

En­tries close on Mon­day, July 17 and will be de­cided by a panel of in­de­pen­dent judges. To nom­i­nate, visit www. wall­shelp­ing­hand.co.uk.
