LUNCH CLUB -QNW has been working in partnership with South Lanarkshire Council (Social Work Dept) & Councillor Carmichael on a project to provide lunch for senior citizens in the village. The Lunch Club will start on Tuesday 17th November will run every Tuesday for 6 weeks initially in Quarter Primary School. The cost for a two course lunch will be £1.25. SLC social work dept have donated a Wii for entertainment and it is hoped that the residents will enjoy the weekly get-togethers and continue the club long after the initial 6 week period.
TRAFFIC CALMING – Traffic speed at Limekilnburn continues to be a concern for residents. The national speed limit on the Strathaven Road is considered, by the residents, to be dangerous for this stretch of road. QNW is working with SLC and Strathclyde Police to alleviate this problem.
PAVEMENTS- Work will begin on Monday 2nd November to repair all pavements in the top half of the village (i.e. Church to Denholm Gardens). This work is long overdue and will hopefully settle the concerns of residents in this area.
PLAYPARK – Work is ongoing with SLC to update the Playpark to make it safe and available for the youngest members of the village. Councillor Carmichael has progressed this work with the architectural department within SLC and for this we are grateful. We will shortly see improvements to the park which will make sure it is a safe environment for play.
XMAS HAMPERS – The annual event will go ahead as planned for senior citizens within the village with all receiving gift(s) from Quarter Neighbourhood Watch. This is only possible each year due to a generous grant from South Lanarkshire Council. Sadly, it might not be possible in future owing to financial constraints which we are all aware of. However, we do hope that everyone who receives a gift enjoys their Xmas.
Season’s Greetings from Quarter Neighbourhood Watch.
