THERE was lots going on at a recent summer fete in Clydebank.

Hill View Care Home held the event on Saturday for their residents, and their friends and families.

On the day there was a tea garden, a raffle, a pet corner, a bake sale, tombola, a wheel of fortune, a fire engine visit, a bouncy castle, face painting and much more.

Corinne Reid, home manager at Hill View Care Home, said: “We had a lovely day with residents and relatives from all units participating.

“Ravenswood House had a roaring success with the raffle, Tower House had a great response to the lovely shawls and scarves - and as always, the bottle stall was very popular.

“Tombola at Inanda drew in a crowd. Children’s lucky dip and play area at Dalmuir with hook a duck was a splash.

“Uladh did a roaring trade with the tea room and thanks to the good weather every one was sitting in the garden. The rain started five minutes after the event finished.

“The pony rides in the back field are always a popular attraction. And thanks to Allison for bringing her rabbits and guinea pigs in as everyone loved them.

“The children who attended loved getting to play on the fire engine.

“We also had a lot of fun on the day with residents and visitors getting a chance on the mic to sing their favourite songs with the Karaoke Clowns.

“It was a fantastic effort by the staff pulling the whole event together, raising more than £1,100.”

One attendee wrote on social media: “I was at the Hill View Care Home fete. Jim McLaren had a wee woman up singing with him. She absolutely loved it. As did everyone, well done Jim for probably making her day.”
