Make a date with artistic fame

OldER residents are being invited to put their brush strokes to the test for a new Trading Standards calendar.

East Dunbartonshire Council is looking for budding artists to submit paintings, drawings, 3D creative works and photographs which will be used to produce a safety calendar for older people within the local community.

Each year, the Trading Standards team provides advice and assistance to consumers to prevent or control unfair or illegal practices.

To highlight the dangers associated with home, product and electrical safety, a calendar is being produced to remind older people of hazards in the home.

The closing date is Wednesday, July 25 and all artwork will be returned. Work can be handed into Abigail Boulstridge at Southbank House, Kirkintilloch or e-mail it to

There is no specific theme for entries and the minimum size accepted is A4 landscape.
