GreenGardenOn a derelict plot in the shadow of some of the biggest industrial buildings in Glasgow, a welcoming green space is coming to life thanks to a bunch of hardy volunteers.

The land next to the Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre on Balmoral Street was once part of the Albion Motors works, whose giant sheds still loom over nearby South Street.

For years it was weed-strewn open space, and a £300,000 plan in 2015 to turn it into a community garden fell through after funding could not be settled. But now the volunteers based at the community centre have scraped together money, tools and materials to do it themselves and bit by bit are turning the two-and-half acre site into green and pleasant land.

20180811_velophonic-orchestra-headerThe spontaneous bicycle where YOU are the orchestra!

On Saturday 11 August 2018 from 10:15 – 11:30am, right in the beating heart of Festival 2018 in George Square, the Velophonic Orchestra will explore the possibilities of using bicycles as instruments: playing on bells, spokes, frames, saddles – you name it. The Velophonic Orchestra is an orchestra that anyone can join!

No previous bicycle-playing experience necessary – just follow the conductors and experience being part of the band as they create a piece of music to celebrate each of the four cycling disciplines of the Glasgow 2018 Championships. There’ll even be a part for non-cyclists!

You can download the flyer here.

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.
