CUMBERNAULD Village youngsters will soon have a brand new play park to attend after a ground-breaking ceremony yesterday afternoon (Monday, 8th April, 2013).
Although most of the equipment has already been erected at the Village’s Jubilee Park, the local community still turned out in numbers to help cut the sod for the further development of the community’s new play area.
Brenda Morgan-Klein, Secretary of the Village Community Council said: “The families and local residents involved in the planning of this play area have all done a lot of hard work – the plans look really exciting.
“The Community Council are delighted that this much needed investment has come into the Village. It really brings people together; it has been an exciting day.”

Village resident, Julie Flynn is the Chair of the Jubilee Park Organisation, a Working Group set up to look into fundraising activities which would bolster the construction of the Jubilee Park play area.
Mrs Flynn said: “Over the past five years we have undertaken a whole range of fundraising activities, involving tombola’s and sixteen mile walk, as well as regular doorstep surveying – in order to learn what they would like to see with the new park.
“The official completion date is the 14th May, although the work could be completed sooner than planned. We will end up having an official opening ceremony, perhaps in June.”
In attendance at the event were a number of representatives from the newly established Culture NL, Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch East MP, Gregg McClymont as well as a number of local residents and community council representatives.
