Good work in parks should be celebrated
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.
