The challenging Scottish weather did little to stop everyone at Parksprings Care Home from enjoying their summer fair.

Home manager Charlie Allan was joined by Motherwell and Wishaw MSP Clare Adamson and Motherwell West councillor Meghan Gallacher to open the event.

There were plenty of guests to provide entertainment on the day which raised £1400 and will be spent enhancing the residents’ stay at Parksprings.

Lucy from Canine Concerns Scotland Trust and her therapet Millie proved a big favourite, as did members of the McKenna Dance Academy who performed some amazing routines.

Crew from Motherwell Community Fire Station invited young and old alike to tour a fire engine, while Greg Stewart performed some great tunes on the bagpipes which added to the atmosphere.

Also adding their support were singer Kirk James, DJ Bobby Coats, the Fool On support group, who performed some Tommy Cooper, and comedian Donald McQuade.
