MORE than 100 people turned out for a fun day in Castlehill, which proved a roaring success.

As part of the Your Community initiative, the fun day was organised by the West Dunbartonshire Council communities team, as well as several other agencies, including the Corra Foundation and Cube Housing, who also helped out financially.

Local schools had a hand in the event as well.

Despite overcast weather, families were treated to a clown, balloon artist and face painting, as well as a raft of sporting activities.

Kids were also able to let their competitive sides out by going head to head in hook a duck and a large outdoor version of the classic game Snakes and Ladders.

St John’s Ambulance proved a real hit with the youngsters, who were able to take a sneak peek around the vehicle, as well as learn more about what the staff do.

The Your Community initiative has brought a raft of improvements to the Kyle Terrace area of Castlehill, including an upgrade to the multi-use games area, building new benches and a picnic table at the playpark at the Mony.

Play equipment was also painted, along with the renewal of the entrance area to the play park as well.

Plans have also been drafted for the creation of outdoor gym equipment at the playpark, to keep local residents fit and healthy.

“It was great to see so many local people and hear their feedback on the Your Community improvements.

“Thanks to all of our partners and residents who helped make the day such a success.”
