Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - Gary Fan­ning

A char­ity cham­pion has led to a cam­paign to get pub­lic no­tice boards erected in the Houldsworth Cen­tre.

Mar­tine Nolan met with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of NHS La­nark­shire Prop­erty Depart­ment to look at hav­ing pub­lic no­tice boards in­stalled at the Houldsworth Cen­tre af­ter she launched a pub­lic pe­ti­tion.

Mar­tine be­gan a pub­lic pe­ti­tion to have NHS La­nark­shire in­stall a no­tice board at the new fa­cil­ity in Ken­nil­worth Road.

So af­ter start­ing the pe­ti­tion on CITIZENGO and send­ing the pe­ti­tion to the elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives, NHS La­nark­shire have de­cided to put no­tice boards into the Houldsworth Cen­tre.

The no­tice boards were in­stalled on Au­gust 21, in­clud­ing com­mu­nity no­tice boards and goods for sales board both ac­ces­si­ble to peo­ple and com­mu­nity groups.

Mar­tine said:“This goes to show that on this oc­ca­sion NHSL, NLC and the com­mu­nity (all those who took the time to sign the pe­ti­tion and send emails to NHS La­nark­shire’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, Calum Camp­bell) have come to­gether to de­liver for the peo­ple of Wishaw a re­source that was much needed. “When the mat­ter of the pub­lic no­tice board within the Houldsworth Cen­tre was brought to our at­ten­tion, we were happy to meet with the re­questers to see how we could fa­cil­i­tate this.

“I’m de­lighted to say that no­tice boards have now been in­stalled in the li­brary and an­other board will be in­stalled in the main re­cep­tion of the Houldsworth Cen­tre over the com­ing week.”
