New bike racks have been installed at Knightswood Community Centre on Alderman Road. The racks are a welcome addition to the Centre and will make it easier for centre users who cycle to make full use of the facilities.

We have been working with the Community Centre and Glasgow City Council to get the racks installed as part of our Cycle Friendly Communities project.

The Community Centre, which is now run by the community through the Knightswood Community SCIO, offers a range of services and activities and also has a Cafe open 6 days a week.

Thanks to the team at Glasgow City Council for installing the racks.

Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK – and this year it’s taking place from the Thu 1 to Wed 7 June 2017. It’s an opportunity for everyone to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers that make the world a better place.

Here at DRCET we involve volunteers in all the work that we do including workshop mechanism and assistants, community clean up assistants, Neighbourhood Improvement Volunteers (NIVs) and community cycling champions.

We also want to recruit volunteers across each of the community council areas we cover (Scotstoun, Whiteinch, Yoker, Thornwood, Knightswood, Jordanhill and Broomhill) to promote a range of environmentally friendly actions from recycling to picking up litter – you’ll lead the way and encourage others to join in.

We’re also looking for local people to join our Board – so if you are interested in improving the local area and would like to help develop DRCET then we’d like to hear from you.

You can contact Sarah on sarah@dumbartonroad.com for more information.
