What is new?

The group have lots of exciting projects ongoing for 2022 and 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 out village clean and welcoming.

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 continue to be in close contact with NLC, NHS Lanarkshire and Neil Gray, MSP regarding the swing park upgrade project that has been ongoing for around 3 years. The funds were secured but a dispute over land ownership, and then a liability issue, saw the £50,000 project halt before anything was even planned. We believe we are in the final stages of the issues being rectified and hope to be looking at the upgrade happening Spring 2023. Stay tuned!

n the next couple of weeks we will have a kiosk erected to host an egg honesty box and book exchange.

The village gateway signs have been created by a local signage company and are ready to sited in accordance with guidelines from North Lanarkshire Council.

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.

Details of a village Christmas event to be posted soon!

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.
