Welcome to the village of Uddingston Community Council Webpage.
It represents the community of Uddingston that has a population of about 5,000 and sits on the banks of the River Clyde. It is extremely well served by road and rail and therefore is extremely well suited for the commuter belt for Glasgow and but also further afield Edinburgh.
Its nearest main town is Hamilton and it sits next to the village of Bothwell. The magnificent castle at Bothwell sits within the boundaries of Uddingston.
Uddingston has a long history and for a long time was world reknowned as a manufacturer of modern farm machinery in 19th and 20th centuries. Being part of Lanarkshire it also has a long history of mining and originally weaving along with farming. It is also the home of the world famous Tunnocks, famed for its caramel wafers and teacakes.
Uddingston has a police station, traditional main street shops and a few pubs. It also has several sports clubs including a hockey Club, cricket club, rugby club, a bowling and tennis club.
The Community Council is run purely for the benefit and representation of the community and we would encourage members of the community to be part of helping to make decisions that effect all of us within the community.
