Fun in the sun at Clydebank Housing Association gala day

CHA gardenThe sun was shining when Clydebank Housing Association (CHA) held its 9th Community Gala Day at Centre81, its regeneration centre in the heart of Whitecrook.

The day was a huge success with over 500 local residents attending. There were bouncy castles, face painting, glitter tattoos, funfair rides and sports for the children. There was also a BBQ, tea/coffee stall and a table top sale.

CHA CarolanneCentre81 is a wider role initiative, owned and managed by CHA. A stall promoting the Centre’s Climate Challenge Fund ‘Grow Your Own Garden’ project proved popular and offered samples of various home grown produce. The crowds were entertained by a DJ and International dancing from ISARO Social Integration Network.

It was a great partnership event and all the local community organisations pulled together to provide information and activities. The day was a fun, community led event, which celebrated the fantastic range of work that is currently happening in Centre81.

CHA thanked everyone who made the day such a success including, ISARO Social Integration Network, Clydebank East Community Council, John White, West Dunbartonshire Council, Join the Dots Community Arts, NHS Smoking Cessation, Strathclyde Fire & Rescue, Police Scotland and its Centre81 staff.

CHA dancersSharon Keenan, chief executive at CHA said: “Our event is definitely one we can foresee going on for many years given the level of enthusiasm, participation and continued support from the local community and in particular from volunteers and groups who without them, the event would be a much smaller affair.”
