UNISON Members Friends and Family Fun Day at New Lanark

Sunday 30 August from 11am to 5pm

 

All UNISON members are invited to our New Lanark members, friends and family Fun Day.

 

This year we have all the usual activities to ensure a good day out for everyone.

 

The historic New Lanark with its top-rated Visitor Centre (25% off for UNISON members on the day), fantastic scenery and walks, excellent Mill Pantry café (UNISON members can get money off vouchers) and 5 star hotel, restaurant and bar, is the venue for our event.

 

In addition we will have lots of things to keep the kids happy. Face painting, balloon sculpture, bouncy castle, birds of prey, smoothie-bike and treasure hunt.

We have live music to keep everyone entertained whilst they browse round the various stalls in the courtyard.

 

In the Visitor Centre’s River Room we have, for UNISON members, the UNIZONE Drop –In where there are lots of goodies for kids and adults alike and the chance to meet up with UNISON colleagues from around the country. 

 

Finally the UNISON There For You raffle, with prizes of an overnight stay at the New Lanark Hotel and a family ticket for the Visitor Centre plus other prizes, will be drawn.

 

We even have plans to cope with the possibility of poor weather so a little bit of Scottish weather won’t spoil the day. Although good weather is almost certainly guaranteed with so many righteous people present!

 

There is a free bus running from East Kilbride and Hamilton. To book places contact the Branch office on 01698 454690.

 

Looking forward to seeing you (and your friends and family).
