It will be welcomed news for people living in Glasgow after we previously reported that there would be no fireworks event at Glasgow Green for the fourth year running.

South Lanarkshire Council’s Executive Director of Community and Enterprise Resources, David Booth said: “Strathclyde Country Park is a wonderful venue for the firework display and allows residents to enjoy the occasion safely at a professionally run event

“We encourage residents to follow advice from Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to ensure everyone celebrates fireworks night safely.

“The event is expected to be very busy and we would advise anyone coming along to arrive early and enjoy the food outlets and the bonfire. If possible, travel by public transport or park further away and walk as there is limited parking in the park itself.”

The event is free to attend.
