FAMILIES flocked to Thenue Housing’s Community Event held on Tuesday July 22 with the emphasis firmly on fun.

Large crowds made sure the occasion was a great success with numbers exceeding expectations.

The weather remained largely fine with just a few occasional showers in what was a great opportunity for people to enjoy themselves.

Tenants came along from all areas where Thenue has its housing including Cranhill, Castlemilk and across the east end.

The gated car park at the rear of the offices on London Road in the east end - emptied specially to make room for stalls - provided the ideal child-safe
environment for all the activities.

Stalls included healthy eating advice, free financial advice, prize bingo, free hot dogs and ice creams, a hugely-popular Playbus, face-painting and balloon
modeling, cycling tips and a bouncy castle.

Chief Executive Charlie Turner said: “We hope people enjoyed themselves which was the aim of this summer community event. It was very busy indeed,
with over 300 there, and our staff worked very hard to make sure people thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”
