What we are doing?

The group have lots of exciting projects ongoing for 2022.

It was lovely to have our first face-to-face meeting this year in April after 2 years of meeting over Zoom. We had a productive meeting and made lots of plans for the forthcoming year.

A state-of-the-art Defibrillator has been purchased and have met with contractors to site this in Hartwood Train Station. We hope this will be in place by Summer.

We were awarded £460 from ScotRail as part of Adopt-a-Station Programme for 2022. We have purchased lots of perennials, shrubs and compost and will start planting at the end of May. We are building 2 large planters for the lengthy Platform 2 to brighten up the large grassed area. We also have identified the perfect spot for a fairy garden on one of the platforms!

We are working with our local MSP to help develop communications between North Lanarkshire Council and NHS Lanarkshire with regards the swing park upgrade. We are beyond frustrated with legal delays for the past 3 years that has put this funded project on hold.

This year will see a kiosk erected to host an egg honesty box and book exchange.

The village gateway signs are purchased and await final permissions from NLC to position them in appropriate places.

We plan to apply for funding to repair a dyke in the heart of the village which has been in a state of disrepair for many years.

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.
