Local organisations and groups came together on Saturday 4 September at Stepps Community Engagement Party to share what activities are on offer locally. Stepps Explorer Scouts provided refreshments to visitors. Both Rainbows/ Brownies and Boys' Brigade shared what activities children could be involved in. Seven Lochs Wetland Park, Northern Corridor Community Volunteers, Cardowan Community Meadows and Save Stepps Greenbelt shared their passion for making the most of our local environment.
There was an opportunity to see photographs of Stepps in years gone by as part of promoting the Stepps Heritage Trail, supported by Stepps and District Community Council.
Local sporting clubs supported the event included Stepps Hockey Club, Stepps Bowling Club, Tuesday Badminton, Stepps2BFit and Ramblers Association.
Groups providing opportunities to socialise, now restrictions are easing, included Chestnut Cafe running on Thursday mornings and Friendship club running Monday afternoons both at Stepps Church Halls. Les Marches are wanting to extend social links further to a twinning visit with our French counterparts.
Thanks to all local groups and residents that made it an afternoon full of good conversation and positive energy. It was a great event for building stronger links within our community.
