Over fifty local residents, friends, volunteers and community partners joined together Saturday for a 5K & 1K Fun Run, walk, jog in The Duchess of Hamilton Park. This Fun Event organised with the support of Holy Trinity Mothers’ Union provided opportunity for increasing physical activity and joining in all age activity in the community.

John Brown DL; CEO of Lifeskills Centres kindly sponsored the water for participants. First Aid duties were covered by St. Andrew’s Ambulance Scotland. Grant funding to cover costs of medals and administration was provided by a Community Grant from North Lanarkshire Council.
