Good work in parks should be cel­e­brated

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

The parks of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are won­der­ful fa­cil­i­ties that should be trea­sured by those in the towns.

Places like Over­toun, Cam­bus­lang and Holmhills parks pro­vide green space in our urban area and let chil­dren en­joy the fresh air.

This week’s Re­former in­cludes de­tails of the Friends of Cam­bus­lang Park’s an­nual gala day event, some­thing that is al­ways a hit with lo­cals.

The friends group at Cam­bus­lang Park, does won­der­ful work, as do all our friends groups across the area.

How­ever, the past few weeks we have seen sto­ries about is­sues in Cam­bus­lang Park. Youths con­tinue to leave bro­ken glass and other items, some­thing that un­der­mines the fine work done by our com­mu­nity vol­un­teers.

It is im­por­tant these is­sues are high­lighted to we can try and solve them but it is equally as im­por­tant to em­pha­sise the fan­tas­tic place the park can be and the work that goes into keep­ing it that way.

You can read the de­tails for the event, which takes place on Au­gust 12, on page 16.

Else­where, on pages eight and nine, we have a spe­cial re­port on how lo­cals feel ScotRail is per­form­ing.

This is on the back of a sat­is­fac­tion sur­vey which sug­gested 90 per cent of pas­sen­gers were sat­is­fied with the per­for­mance of our trains.

There was a mixed re­sponse in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang, but why not have your say by writ­ing us a letter or an email? The con­tact de­tails are to your left.

You can read what other read­ers are talk­ing about on page 34 on our let­ters page.
