Strathaven Fireworks in the park

Tonight saw the annual fireworks display in Strathaven Park, a fantastic evening out for all the family.  Unfortunately, due to the weather the bonfire was cancelled but the fireworks were amazing, rain or not!  The organisers – Strathaven and District Round Table – do a fantastic job every year bringing this event together for the local community.  Strathaven Park has held on to its title as Scotland’s best park for the third year running in the Green Flag Award scheme, and finished in the top 10 in the UK overall.  The park also hosts the annual Gala Day and Strathaven Balloon Festival.  The local volunteer group Friends of Strathaven Park works closely with South Lanarkshire Council to make sure the park is kept at its best, and our little town is proud to have such a wonderful facility.

Hope everyone is drying out after an evening of fun and fireworks, and enjoying a hot chocolate!
