Rutherglen Reformer - - Front Page - Dou­glas Dickie

The com­mu­nity of Burn­side was out in force on Satur­day to en­joy the Burn­side Com­mu­nity Coun­cil Gala Day.

Or­gan­ised in aid of Burn­side in Bloom, the day was a huge suc­cess de­spite per­sis­tent show­ers.

Former coun­cil­lor Rus­sell Clearie opened the event while lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions con­trib­uted to an in­ter­est­ing va­ri­ety of stalls.

Lo­cal traders were gen­er­ous with their con­tri­bu­tions for raf­fle prizes and to prizes for a lo­cal pri­mary school art com­pe­ti­tion.

The over­all win­ner of the art com­pe­ti­tion was Amelie Ku­mar of Burn­side Pri­mary. In­di­vid­ual win­ners were: Burn­side Pri­mary - Rachael Walsh, pri­mary three

St Colum­bkille’s Pri­mary - Mol­lie Mon­aghan, 5, pri­mary one.

Calder­wood Pri­mary - Hasan Mo­ham­mad, 11.

A wa­ter­colour of old Burn­side painted by res­i­dent Alas­tair Moodie was raf­fled off.

The vis­i­tors were en­ter­tained -de­spite some late call-offs - by Cam­glen Ra­dio and Abba and Loxie, two girl vo­cal­ist groups.

As the af­ter­noon ended the sun­shine fi­nally broke through.
