Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

Par­ticp8 Over­ton will hold their sum­mer gala day on Satur­day, July 29.

Run­ning from 1-4pm, the event at North Half­way Hall on Gra­ham Av­enue prom­ises to be a great oc­ca­sion for all those who go along.

Par­ticp8 sec­re­tary, Jim Walker, said: “We’re hop­ing the weather will be kind to us this year as we have a fun-filled day planned to en­ter­tain the res­i­dents of Cam­bus­lang East and ev­ery­one is wel­come to come along.

“CamGlen Ra­dio will be on hand to make sure the day goes with a boo­gie beat.

“We also have the climb­ing wall for our po­ten­tial moun­taineers of the fu­ture and move the goal­posts where our lo­cal foot­ball stars will strut their stuff.

“For peo­ple of all ages, shapes and sizes we have our sumo wrestling, a bit of harm­less fun, and if we can find enough will­ing vol­un­teers we will have our tug-owar com­pe­ti­tion, which is al­ways lots of laughs.

“For the less en­er­getic we’ll have the ever-pop­u­lar pet­ting zoo for our an­i­mal lovers and also pony rides for our bud­ding jock­eys.

“Bouncy cas­tles are al­ways pop­u­lar with our younger kids and this year we’re try­ing out new equip­ment.

“We’re all very ex­cited about that with some vol­un­teers hop­ing to try them out first.”

Or­gan­is­ers still hope to add some more at­trac­tions to the bill.

Most of the ac­tiv­i­ties are free but there is a small charge for the pony rides.

Par­ticip8 Over­ton put on a num­ber of events through­out the year and Jim said they needed other peo­ple in the com­mu­nity to get in­volved.

“Our fun day events, fire­works dis­play and Christ­mas events are great fun but it does take a lot of man­power and we’re al­ways look­ing for vol­un­teers to en­sure that they can con­tinue into the fu­ture.”
