What is new?

The group have lots of exciting projects for 2023.

We are delighted to have been awarded Beautiful Scotland Certificate of Recognition by Keep Scotland Beautiful (October 2022). We are grateful to local residents who have adopted barrels and look after them throughout the year. We also have a few people who litter pick every week to keep our village clean and welcoming. We renewed our membership for Keep Beautiful Scotland for 2023.

A state-of-the-art semi-automatic Defibrillator is now in place at Hartwood Train Station thanks to funds awarded from North Lanarkshire Council. ScotRail kindly paid for the installation costs and will pay for the ongoing electricity costs that keeps the secure cabinet frost free. This is a great benefit to our rural village.

We hope to see the swing park upgrade commence very soon. Following this, we are looking at ways we can use the large football field area for the benefit of the community. A few people have suggested a secure dog area would be appropriate and the feasibility of this is currently being investigated by the group.

In March 2023 we received a grant of £640 from North Lanarkshire council for environmental improvements. We purchased plants, shrubs, paint, brushes and the like to revamp the 9 barrels and planters that are in place around the village.

We welcome any ideas residents have to enhance the look of the village and improve the physical and mental wellbeing of everyone who resides here.
