Our Year of Success
For our AGM 2017 we wanted to showcase the organisations success and give thanks to all the individuals who helped make it happen in their own ways.

After a major resturcture the organisation may look slightly different, but we want local people to know that we haven't changed.
Bike Town #icyclebecuase
There was no better feeling as child than riding your bike, for some of us that feeling has been left behind. With the #ICycleBecause campaign Bike Town are aiming to bring that feeling of fun and freedom back to everyone living in Cambuslang and Rutherglen. Take a moment to watch this short video to see why it's still so easy to feel good and go cycling!

Building Better Communities
The communities film presentation was shown at the plenary meeting of the Scottish Leaders Forum at the Beardmore Hotel, Clydebank to an audience of over 150 public service leaders from across Scotland. The theme for the event was “Supporting Resilient Communities, the Role of Public Service Leaders. The film went down very well and was one of the highlights of the morning, together with keynote speakers Geoff Mulgan from the National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts, and Carol Tannahill from the Glasgow Centre for Population Health. The event overall was very well received and the feedback from attendees was very positive.

HnH part of Scottish Government Regeneration Boost
Healthy n Happy hosted a welcome visit from Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond and the Minister for Commonwealth Games, Sport, Equalities and Pensioners' Rights, Shona Robison on Tuesday 27th May. Both were met by a mixture of staff, board members and volunteers from HnH and Clyde Gateway and the Ministers spent over an hour talking to and finding out about the work of Healthy n Happy in Cambuslang and Rutherglen. The Ministers were announcing a package of Commonwealth Legacy funding, part of which (through key partners Clyde Gateway) is enabling HnH to purchase and refurbish the Aspire Church building in Rutherglen. The building will be the home of CamGlen Radio, along with offering meeting and training space and possible a community café. A full community consultation is about to take place, if you want to help influence the design of the building, contact Liz at the HnH office.
