Don’t miss Bearsden family fun day on Saturday

The final preparations are being made for this Saturday’s Community Fun Day in the Bonnaughton area of Bearsden.

This will be the second year the event has been staged and it will take place in Langfaulds Field on Nevis Road.

The fun kicks off with the opening ceremony at 1pm after which a wide range of musical events will take to the arena including the 1st Bearsden BB pipe band, Key Note, a Scottish music band and The Allander Jazz Band.

Also in the arena will be New Kilpatrick Scottish Country Dance team, races, a dog show and a Puppet Stars Show.

Among the other activities on site, there will be the famous Gecko Climbing wall. This is a challenging artificial mobile climbing wall which is sure to be a firm favourite with the kids . It is an ideal way of learning how to climb safely in harnesses and ropes.

Caulders Garden Centre will be leading an ‘Autumn in Your Garden’ Workshop and there will be on-site catering including a Tea Tent from Castlehill Church who are running the Fun Day and Domino’s Pizza.

One of the organisers, Alan Wells, said: “Last year was such a great success that we decided to hold it again this year.

“It is so good to see the community come out in force and enjoyed itself.

“ This year we want to build on that community spirit and look forward to welcoming even greater numbers to what promises to be a great Fun Day.”
