What is new?

The group have lots of exciting projects for the remainder of 2023.

We are proud members of Keep Scotland Beautiful and are delighted to have been awarded Beautiful Scotland Certificate of Recognition at an awards dinner in Edinburgh on 8th September 2023. We take great pride in our small village and work with local residents in looking after barrels and planters throughout the year. Litter picking is also a weekly task in keeping our village clean and welcoming.

We hope to see the swing park upgrade commence very soon. We have been saying that for some time now but we are hopeful of the works commencing early October! Stay tuned! 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.

We have recently met with members of the Forestry Commission to hear about proposals for the owned fields around Hartwood. They will hold a consultation event in the coming months at Home Farm to discuss these with local residents.

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.

As of 11th August 2023, the Defibrillator has been in place for one year. During this year it has been accessed once as requested by Scottish Ambulance Service. Thankfully, it was not required to be used and the family were grateful it was nearby and offered some reassurance at a difficult time.

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.
