LAST week (March 20th) saw over thirty people swarm to the Westerwood Hotel all in order to showcase their talent in front of a judging panel, for the chance to perform and the Cumbernauld Community Park's ‘Fun In The Park’ event, later on this year.
Cumbernauld's Got Talent was organised by Friends of Cumbernauld Community Park and the Cumbernauld College's Events Team, who filmed the event for their HNC.

Among the acts were Rachel Drum, a twenty year old solo dancer, who wowed the audience and judges with her moves.
Michael Kiernan, a twenty one year old who shocked the panel with his strong tenner voice and Dynamite.
Dynamite was a group of young dancers who were choreographed by their friends. And, nobody will forget ten year old Aaron Robertson, who played the piano and blow the audience away with his talents.
Upon application, each applicant act was asked to make a minimum donation of £5. All the money raised would go to the Scottish Spina Bifida Assocation. Over £200 has already been raised and the money will go to help people affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus, including 100 families living in the local area.
