A CELEBRATION of the joys of learning was held in Kilsyth recently with many eager scholars receiving certificates.

The Garrell Vale centre was the venue for the shindig, attended by more than 70 learners who took part in community learning and development (CLD) courses during the year.

The evening was opened by Lizanne McMurrich, head of community information and learning, who welcomed everyone and urged the students to “keep on learning, as you are never too old to learn something new.”

The certificates were presented by Councillor Jean Jones.

Locality team manager Colin Coupar and his staff were thanked for organising the event and for the team’s work throughout the year.

Several hundred have achieved certificates from CLD during the past year.
