Local primary school pupils made a significant contribution to the success of the first School Run Summit for west Glasgow, which was hosted earlier this week by local charity Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) and De’ils On Wheels at the Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre.

The pupils, many of whom are Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs), joined over 40 other people who attended the School Run Summit, to look at how they could work together more effectively to address the school run issue and make the streets in and around local schools in the G11 to G15 postcode areas safer for all.

The primary school pupils told people about the great initiatives they are involved in including the JRSO programme, BikeAbility, the zig-zag campaign, the parking pledge, walking buses and park and stride schemes. Bankhead, Corpus Christi and Garscadden (now part of Clyde Primary) Primary Schools were all awarded the Glasgow City Council’s Lord Provost’s Road Safety Award in September.

Construction work is underway on a new £3.7 million Olympic standard BMX track being built in Kinghtswood area of Glasgow ahead of the 2018 European Championships – an exciting new multi-sport event bringing together some of the continent’s leading sports.

The new BMX Centre at Knightswood Recreation Ground is the only permanent venue being constructed for use at Glasgow 2018 and will be Scotland’s only World and Olympic standard BMX track. Work is expected to be complete by late spring next year, after which the venue will host a number of test events in the lead up to Glasgow 2018.

Completion of Knightswood BMX Centre will mean Glasgow is the only city in the world with venues capable of hosting all four Olympic cycling discipline events (BMX, MTB, Road and Track) within its boundary. The others are the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome at the Emirates Arena (Track), Cathkin Braes Mountain Bike Trails (MTB) and the city’s streets (Road).

Following on from our 13th Annual General Meeting at the Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre our latest Annual Report is now available to download  DRCET_AnnualReport_2016-17_Final

As you will see it has been another busy and successful year for everyone involved with DRCET and we continue to deliver a wide range of successful services and activities for the people and communities of Yoker, Scotstoun, Whiteinch and beyond!

The AGM took place after our School Run Summit which had over 50 people attend to discuss how we can work together more effectively to address school run issues.

This year Trustees’ Week takes place from Monday 13 to Friday 17 November 2017. To help celebrate Trustees’ Week we are holding our AGM on Tuesday 14 November.

Trustees’ Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.

What are trustees? Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They help to make the UK the sixth most giving country in the world. They play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity’s work.

The October edition – Issue 64 – of our monthly eNews letter Your Community, Your Planet landed in the inboxes of nearly 400 people today.

The October issue features details of our forthcoming School Run Summit and our AGM as well as updates on Play On Pedals, the Green Gym, Road Safety Week and lots, lots more – and don’t forget our community calendar of local events.

You can sign up to receive future issues here – go on – you know you want to! And you can read all the previous issues on our website.
