demo_headerFriends of Victoria Park (FoVP) are holding a demonstration on Sunday 24 June at 2.00 pm to appeal to Glasgow City Council to withdraw its threat to grass over 28 of the main flower beds at the park at the end of this season. The beds are recognised as an integral feature of the park in Historic Environment Scotland’s Inventory of Gardens & Designed Landscapes.

FoVP are asking everyone who wants to ensure the future of these magnificent gardens to join them, if possible wearing colourful, flowery clothes, face paints and carrying placards. Meet at the gardens behind the big pond & duck pond at 2.00 pm. We hope to see you there. Please pass on the word to friends and family.

FoVP would also ask everyone to contact the Council or their local councillors to appeal for the gardens to be saved. Please do all you can to support us and use all your influence in local organisations to raise awareness. This is not a done deal. If enough people show they care we can get this decision changed. Contact FoVP to help with the campaign.
