A spring in their step for summer

The challenging Scottish weather did little to stop everyone at Parksprings Care Home from enjoying their summer fair.

Home manager Charlie Allan was joined by Motherwell and Wishaw MSP Clare Adamson and Motherwell West councillor Meghan Gallacher to open the event.

There were plenty of guests to provide entertainment on the day which raised £1400 and will be spent enhancing the residents’ stay at Parksprings.

Lucy from Canine Concerns Scotland Trust and her therapet Millie proved a big favourite, as did members of the McKenna Dance Academy who performed some amazing routines.

Residents and visitors alike had fun at the fair

Crew from Motherwell Community Fire Station invited young and old alike to tour a fire engine, while Greg Stewart performed some great tunes on the bagpipes which added to the atmosphere.

Also adding their support were singer Kirk James, DJ Bobby Coats, the Fool On support group, who performed some Tommy Cooper, and comedian Donald McQuade.

There were bouncy castles, face painting by Samantha Bell and an appearance from Chase of Paw Patrol to entertain.

The event was supported by many local businesses, families and friends, and all at Parksprings would like to thank everyone who contributed to an extraordinary day.
