Saturday was the Fun day in the park arranged by the Friends of the Glen and ourselves. Despite the weather there was a great turnout with well over 100 people coming along to take part in the festivities.
The day was split across 5 different tents and lots of activities. Wood carving was in one tent where children could watch as an expert at wood carving created whistles for them. Kids could win a prize in the hook a duck competition and learn how to make a bird feeder in another tent.
The main tent housed the friends of the glen planting workshop and plaster moulding as well as quizzes and colouring sheets. The refreshments stall was well used throughout the day selling tea and coffee and a selection of snacks. The other large tent held our information sheets with people from Palacerigg giving away free seed samples and our own Beth McCormack selling her excellent glass creations. There were historic tours of the park and the day was rounded off by a nature ramble.
Well over 100 people turned up on the day despite the weather which was changeable to say the least. Ultimately a good time was had by all and the raffle for the decorative cake will be drawn at our next meeting early next month.
Plus we had some coverage on the STV Cumbernauld site too!
All in all a great day with so much going on and no child left empty handed as they were all encouraged to create something on the day.
