Fun in Castlemilk

Rutherglen Reformer - - Fairground Attraction - Dou­glas Dickie

All the fun of the fair came to Castlemilk this sum­mer and the whole com­mu­nity came out to en­joy it.

The Braes Shop­ping Cen­tre wel­comed fair­ground rides from the Codona fam­ily, who run trav­el­ling shows through­out Scot­land.

From Thurs­day, June 29 un­til Sun­day, July 2 young and old alike came out in their num­bers to en­joy the rides.

The fun fair proved so pop­u­lar the rides have been in­vited back again. Alas­dair Irv­ing, man­ager of the shop­ping cen­tre, said: “The event went down very well with the com­mu­nity, and we got a lot of thanks from ev­ery­body, young and old.

“A lot of peo­ple re­marked that this re­minded them of Castlemilk in its prime in the ‘60 and ‘70s when the fair would be a reg­u­lar at­trac­tion.

“I have in­vited the fair back for an event next sum­mer and also for the Christ­mas lights switchon in De­cem­ber. If I’m lucky, there may be a time in be­tween that they can re­turn too.

“It was very well run by the Codona’s. I could not be­lieve that they could host so many rides in our over­flow car park and there was still plenty of room to mill about.”
