20141022_GreenGymYoker_09_RubbishLast week we spent a productive few hours with the guys from the Green Gym down in Yoker tidying a section of the cycle path including picking litter, cutting back vegetation and clearing fly-tipped rubbish. In addition to ourselves and the Green Gym volunteers we were joined by Sustrans Scotland volunteers and the Fortune Works gardening group.

NCN7_LogoWe managed to clear 3 sites (see the before and after photos below!):

  • the corner of Kelso Street and Mellerstain Drive (building on previous work done by DRC Youth Project and 203rd Glasgow Scout group)
  • the section of the cycle path from Mellerstain Drive to Yoker Sports Centre and
  • the path down the side of Yoker Sports Centre to Spiershall Terrace.

Thanks as well to Clean Glasgow for their support in uplifting all the rubbish and green waste!

Brand puzzleAfter 10 years as DRCET we feel it’s time for a bit of a freshen up. At our recent AGM we got the ball rolling by asking people for suggestions for a new name. The next phase is that, with support from Jobs and Business Glasgow, we are now working with RPL MKTG to look at new names and associated branding.

The first part of this phase is a survey of stakeholders to gather their views. You can access the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JQBRYJF We would appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to respond – the deadline for responding is Friday 24 October. This will then be followed up by a focus group of stakeholders to discuss the results of the survey before developing a few options for a new name and brand!

Welcome to DRCET!! We deliver a wide range of environmental projects and services across the West of Glasgow and beyond.

We work to protect and enhance the local environment and to increase the wellbeing and resilience of local people and communities.
