GlasgowParks.jpgMyParkScotland is a new project that will help people discover and support their local parks. It’s a direct response to the funding challenges facing Scotland’s parks and the impact this is already having on how people are able to use and enjoy their local parks.

MyParkScotland is being developed by greenspace scotland with funding from the Rethinking Parks programme. We want to encourage people to discover and enjoy parks and inspire communities to get involved in improving and supporting their local park. Working initially in Edinburgh and Glasgow, our idea is to create an online ‘hub’ that gives you up-to-date information about what’s happening in your local park, develops a ‘parks community’, and has a giving section that enables people to set up projects to improve their park and encourages supporters to donate.

IMG_20140916_GerardKatherineWe are delighted to welcome a couple of new faces to the team. Katherine Mackinnon joins us as or part time Volunteer Develoment Officer working on the Glasgow WAVE Project and Gerard Espie joins us as a student placement from Glasgow University.

It’s great to have additonal people on board and bringing with them some fresh ideas about how we work and we are really looking forward to working with them over the coming months.

We caught up with them both to find out a wee bit more about them and see how they were settling in after their first few weeks with us! First up was Katherine…

voicelogoOver the past 10 months we have been getting support from the Scottish Community Development Centre through their Supporting Communities programme.

We have been working on various different aspects and this week we undertook training on the VOiCE – Visioning Outcomes in Community Engagement.

VOiCE is planning and recording software that assists individuals, organisations and partnerships to design and deliver effective community engagement and can be used to support a range of participation from overall area regeneration to specific concerns of users of particular services.

DRCET_10thBirthdayLast month we had our 10th Birthday Bash and AGM and so we organised a wee gathering of friends and supporters to help us celebrate! We had a fantastic turnout matched with some fantastic cakes (a big thanks to Marie from the Cheery Tree Cafe!).

We kicked off with a wee look back over the past 10 years with a Prezi presentation (hopefully the wee video at the end works this time! – any problems let us know!) before getting some feedback from the participants about our achievements to date (If you were unable to attend you can still give us some feedback – see below)

20140821_Igram_AGM_01We have changed a lot over the last 10 years and so we also feel it’s time for a wee freshen up and so we also asked everyone for suggestions for a new name – we got some great suggestions (see the Word Clouds below) and we are currently working with a marketing company on developing the name and branding.

We also held our AGM and our annual report and annual accounts are now available to download. (See photos below)

A huge thanks to everyone for all their support over the past ten years and your contribution to our achievements and our celebrations and we look forward to working with you in the future!

If you’ve been along Dumbarton Road in Scotstoun recently you may have noticed the corner of Raploch Street has had a make over. The work to improve this small area of public realm was completed a couple of weeks and undertaken by GHA as part of a wider programme of improvements throughout the area.

We think it looks great and hopefully it will be maintained and kept looking this good.

20140903_Wheatley_Kingsway_57Last week a group of volunteers from the Wheatley Group volunteered up at the Kingsway Court Community Garden. The volunteers spent the whole day in the garden undertaking a wide range of tasks including preparing raised beds for planting, grass cutting, turning the compost heap, screening compost and soil and weeding and tidying up the garden.

20140903_Wheatley_Kingsway_17The volunteers had a great day and got stuck into all the different tasks and really enjoyed being away from their desks for the day as well as enjoying some late summer sun! All the activities were in preparation for the Kingsway Community Garden harvest event which was held last Saturday.

A massive thanks to everyone that helped and we look forward to seeing you again soon! You can check out more photos below…
