The Greenlink in North Lanarkshire is cooking up a cauldron of spooky activities for its sixth annual event to celebrate Halloween this year.

The popular events in Motherwell will take place:

  • Wednesday 22nd October – 6pm – Shields Glen, Muirhouse
  • Wednesday 29th October – 6pm – Daisy Park Community Centre, Cassells Street

The events are being sponsored for the sixth consecutive year by Motherwell Community Forum and NHS Lanarkshire, who have made a £1000 contribution to the project, safeguarding its existence for another year.

This year’s creepy concoction of activities will include a spooky Halloween walk at both events.  The Daisy Park walk will end with an indoor session in the Community Centre from 7pm.  

Locals will battle it out with their swords and broomsticks to be crowned best costume of the night and there will be complimentary soup and fruit packs for adults, as well as lots more scary fun.

Susan Rutherford, Greenlink Project Coordinator, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming the local Lanarkshire community to our Halloween events and we’re extremely grateful to Motherwell Community Forum and NHS Lanarkshire for their continued support.” 

Parents should note that children must be accompanied by an adult and all guests should bring a torch, dress for the outdoors and be prepared to go on a spooky walk in the woods.

The Greenlink is a 7km cycle route from the Aquatech to Strathclyde Country Park via North Motherwell, Forgewood and Orbiston.  It is also designated as a Community Park in the Greenbelt.  The project is a partnership managed by Central Scotland Green Network Trust and funded by NHS Lanarkshire Keep Well, The Nineveh Trust, Clydesdale Bank, North Lanarkshire Council, ASDA Foundation, Viridor, and Scottish Natural Heritage.
