PORT Glasgow people came together for a fun day - and to call for more investment in health and happiness.

Local community care forum Your Voice organised an event to help local people find out more about the groups and activities on offer in their own town.

At the same time they were also helping health and social care bosses reach out to people in a bid to direct resources to the right places to tackles issues like social isolation.

The aim of the event in St John's the Baptist Church was to celebrate the community and focus on where funding should be spent in the future.

Organiser Stephen Harrison, from Your Voice, said: "It was a very successful day and we had a great turnout.

"It was an opportunity to showcase the different activities and groups in Port Glasgow.

"I think people were quite surprised about what is actually in place.

On the day St Stephen's High School pupils provided entertainment, performing some numbers from the musical Grease.

Home-made cooking was served up as visitors had a chance to experience a flavour of the town.

The Your Voice team also spent the day getting feedback from local people about where they think investment should be made in their town.

Stephen added: "In Port Glasgow it's clear there is a strong sense of community.

"Young people would definitely like to see more activities and places to go after school.

"For older people transport links and better parking was highlighted as a real issue."

Inverclyde Health and Social Care has drawn up six action plans for Inverclyde setting out priorities for all public services and agencies.

As part of a wider community planning process the district has been divided into a number of 'localities' - Greenock West and Gourock, Greenock East and Central, Kilmacolm and Quarrier's, Port Glasgow, Greenock South and South West and Inverkip and Wemyss Bay.

There have been similar community consultation events held in each area to gather the views of local people at grassroots level before decisions are taken.
