Glasgow City Heritage Trust is excited to be teaming up with Lost Glasgow, to present an exhibition devoted to the documentation, discussion and appreciation of Glasgow’s changing architecture and its community throughout the last few centuries.

The exhibition is on from Thursday 29 June until Thursday 31 August 2017 at the Glasgow City Heritage Trust, 54 Bell Street, Glasgow G1 1LQ. Admission is FREE but please visit the Glasgow City Heritage Trust website for details of opening times.

Since launching in 2014, the Lost Glasgow Facebook page has attracted a 135k-strong global following. The site, which uses archive photographs to spark stories, memories, and debate about the city, its buildings, its people, and its ever-evolving history and future, was launched off the back of the successful Lost Edinburgh site.

The exhibition will cover everything from the majestic to the mundane, from the city’s great buildings to its more humble corners, from the tenement to the townhouse, from the great and the good, to the ‘common old workin’ man (and woman). The bottom line is, we love Glasgow, and the tales of our city. And everybody in Glasgow loves to hear a good story.

Join in, be a curator and rearrange our exhibition, then leave a comment about the pictures you connect with the most.

It’s two years since greenspace scotland launched MyParkScotland and they have been supporting groups with their crowdfunding projects through training, mentoring and workshop sessions. They have now pulled all of this experience together, and worked with crowdfunding experts at Twintangibles, to prepare the MyParkScotland Crowdfunding Resource Kit which was launched recently.

The MyParkScotland Crowdfund Resource Kit has been designed to help groups wanting to crowdfund for parks and greenspace projects.

Funded by Awards for All, Scotland the Resource Kit introduces and explains the concept of crowdfunding and helps groups plan, run and deliver their crowdfunding campaigns. Included within the Resource Kit is the Crowdfunding Campaign Planning Worksheet, this editable document is designed to help groups think about key elements of their crowdfunding campaign including growing your “crowd”, getting the messaging right, how to get that message across and what to do when your campaign is complete.

In the past week De’ils On Wheels, our community bike workshop has reached a couple of ‘grand’ landmarks.

Firstly we received our 1000th donated bike, which is totally amazing!

And secondly we reached 1000 likes on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/deilsonwheels!

So we would just like to say a thousand thank yous to everyone that has donated a bike to us or that has liked our Facebook page! Your support is very much appreciated.

One of the donations we recently received was a 1950s Raleigh bicycle which has only had one careful owner! It is great condition and we hope to have it back on the road in the near future! You can check out some of our refurbished bikes for sale here! (And the photo we posted on Facebook has also had over 1000 views!!!)

Also we are really in need of donations of ladies bikes so if you have one you no longer have a use for then please get in touch!

The Consultative Draft of the Glasgow Community Plan has been developed by partners in the city to articulate the priority areas where joint action can make a real difference. Residents are invited to voice their opinions on the plan.

Glasgow Community Planning Partnership brings together public agencies, the third sector and the private sector, to work to improve the city its services and the lives of people who live and work here.

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 requires the Partnership to publish a plan that sets out our shared priorities for the city, where we plan to make improvements and over time show that we have made these improvements. This document sets out these priority areas for consultation. The final version of the Glasgow Community Plan will be published in October 2017. Public feedback to the draft will help shape that document.

The Consultative Draft of the Glasgow Community Plan can be found here GlasgowCommunityPlan_ConsultativeDraft

All members of the community are invited and encouraged to have your say on the plan using the following online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/GlasgowCommunityPlan
The survey will be open until Thursday 31 August 2017.

You can also find this information via social media on Twitter using the hashtag #HaveYourSayGlas and on Facebook.
