Dear Ed­i­tor, The Royal Cafe on South Bridge Street in Air­drie, now re­named The Cosy Cafe, is one of the old­est re­main­ing in the district.

It con­tin­ues to be a very pop­u­lar venue with both lo­cals and vis­i­tors, of­fer­ing a high level of cus­tomer ser­vice as well as ex­cel­lent menu choices and cui­sine.

The fol­low­ing wee poem is an ex­tended thank you to the owner and staff for their sus­tained ef­fort and hard work in cre­at­ing a com­bi­na­tion of a warm at­mos­phere, and de­li­cious meals and drinks. For de­li­cious scrump­tious meals that will make you glow The lovely Cosy Cafe is the place to go. The len­til soup is al­ways bub­bling away, The chips are crisp and golden, freshly cooked each day. The pro­pri­etor, Mark, never wears a frown; His yummy homemade scones are a leg­end in the town. Wee Ryan the waiter will wel­come you with a friendly grin; At the Cosy Cafe, noth­ing is served out of a tin. The cafe win­dow is sea­sonal, cre­ative and bright – Easter, Hal­loween and Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions are sheer de­light. So next time you walk by the Cosy Cafe door, Please go in; you will come back for more.

Wil­liam Queen, Glen­mavis Thanks from char­ity Dear Ed­i­tor,

On be­half of Chil­dren 1st, I’d like to thank the peo­ple of Air­drie and Coat­bridge for their con­tin­ued sup­port for Scot­land’s na­tional chil­dren’s char­ity.

We’re over­whelmed by the gen­eros­ity and fundrais­ing ef­forts from ev­ery­one across Scot­land.

It’s this kind­ness that has al­lowed us to help over 8000 chil­dren and their fam­i­lies in 2018 alone.

We’d like to say spe­cial thanks to play­ers of Peo­ple’s Post­code Lot­tery in Mon­k­lands, for 10 years of sup­port through Post­code Chil­dren Trust.

This has en­abled us to con­tinue de­liv­er­ing vi­tal sup­port ser­vices – which in­clude our ad­vice net­work, Par­ent­line.

In the past year, Par­ent­line sup­ported more than 2100 par­ents thanks to the play­ers, and we look to ex­pand our pres­ence lo­cally this year.

We’ve also been able to pre­vent and pro­tect chil­dren and their fam­i­lies from trau­matic ex­pe­ri­ences, in­clud­ing poverty, loss and abuse thanks to the play­ers, as well as help­ing them be­come stronger and more re­silient to­gether.

With the sup­port of play­ers of Peo­ple’s Post­code Lot­tery, through Post­code Chil­dren Trust, we can help build a brighter fu­ture for more chil­dren and fam­i­lies in Air­drie and Coat­bridge.

Mary Glas­gow, Chil­dren 1st

is Fe­bru­ary 28; please note that you must keep your nom­i­na­tion se­cret at all times.

We look for­ward to hear­ing from Ad­ver­tiser read­ers!
