1.    Purpose of Report / Introduction

1.1   Following discussions with local elected members and the community it was decided to
      recognise 50 years of Cumbernauld New Town.

1.2   A sub-group was formed of the Local Area Team, chaired by the Local Regeneration
      Manager, with representatives from Community Services, Planning & Environment,
      Education, Cumbernauld Theatre, Cumbernauld Housing Partnership;

2.    0bjective

2.1   The broad objective of the Cumbernauld 50 programme was to ensure that all who lived and
      worked in the Cumbernauld locale were aware that Cumbernauld town was 50 years old.
      This modest objective required that a broad spectrum of events and activities covering all
      age groups be undertaken. It was also envisaged that some sort of lasting commemoration
      relating to Cumbernauld 50 would also be considered.

3.    Outline Programme

3.1   Attached in the appendix is the draft programme. This details a number of projects outlining
      the lead services and the linkages which will be developed to take forward each individual

3.2   The major projects which will take place, funding permitting, include:-

         A new piece of public art recognising 50 years of Cumbernauld.
         It is hoped this piece of art will be housed with the new Antonine Centre and will be a
         lasting monument to Cumbernauld 50. This will coincide with the official opening of the
         Mall, which it is hoped will be undertaken by a member of the Royal family

         A Cumbernauld walkway.
         Cumbernauld has many public pathways; this project will formalise the many paths into
         measured formal walking routes. Maps etc. will be produced offering interpretation into
         the routes and places of interest beyond.

         Cumbernauld 50 half marathon.
         This event would encourage the serious runner along with the fun-runner; teams may
         also enter allowing all that would like to take part the opportunity. The health aspect of
         this would also be considerable with health checks encouraged for all runners along with
         a health fare being staged on the day.

         Cumbernauld 50 within the School curriculum.
         Education Department in consultation with Community Services will undertake to
         produce a training pack encouraging activities with the school sector ensuring that all
         children will are aware of the 50 years of Cumbernauld.
               Photographic Exhibition
              The Council Archives at Lenziemill has many pictures and photographs charting the
              history of the own, it is proposed to hold an exhibition of these works for the first time in
              the town.

              Art Competition
              A competition will be staged inviting all interested to show how they view Cumbernauld
              50 years on. This may be in photographic form, painting or other form. It is hoped some
              of these works will be displayed.

              The Scottish Screen Touring Cinema.
              We envisage bringing the above to the Town for a period allowing access to the many
              movies which have been made in and around the Town.

3.3       In addition to the above other projects being considered include a Historical publication on
          the town as well as a local Battle of the Bands competition. St Maurice’s High School will
          also as part of the celebration host the Scottish Chess Championships.

4.        Funding

4.1       Arrangements for funding this programme are being considered through normal council
          channels and external funding and sponsorship. Approaches have already been received
          from the private sector and these will be investigated further in the coming weeks.

5.        Consultation

5.1       Many groups and individuals have already indicated their wish to take part in the
          programme. Some organisations have suggested organising complimentary events around
          our proposals. We shall now seek their thoughts on these proposals and how they wish to be
          further involved.

5.2       Further reports will be submitted to the Partnership as plans progress.
