Demolition of 10 Block

The Disappearing Glasgow exhibition is taking place from Thu 19 Jan to Sun 19 Feb in Gallery Two at The Lighthouse, 11 Mitchell Lane, Glasgow G1 3NU. The exhibition takes a look at the changing city scape including the demolition of high rise tower blocks such as those at Plean Street, Kingsway Court and Lincoln Avenue.

The description of the exhibition is as follows:

Photographer and filmmaker Chris Leslie is widely acknowledged as the most consistent chronicler of the city’s recent history. This new multimedia exhibition and accompanying book ‘Disappearing Glasgow’ documents an era of spectacular change in Glasgow through the medium of photography and film.

The skyline of Glasgow has been radically transformed as high rise tower blocks have been blown down and bulldozed. Since 2006 more than 30% of the city’s high rise flats have disappeared, communities dispersed across the city and Dalmarnock have ‘been raised from the ashes’ via the Commonwealth Games.

Does this Disappearing Glasgow herald a renaissance in the city? 

stpauls_garden01Earlier in the year pupils from a few of the local primary schools came along to Kingsway Community garden to plant various vegetable seeds in some of the communal raised beds.

Last week the pupils from St Paul’s Primary in Whiteinch popped back along to the garden to harvest their leeks.

Despite the cold they had a great time up at the garden and harvested quite a few leeks – which they took back to their school and cooked!

SummerProgramme_ImageDuring July and August we’re looking for people to get active and get involved in tidying up the local area.  There are going to be community clean ups on Wednesday mornings and gardening sessions at Kingsway Court Community Garden on a Thursday morning.

It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, improve your community, get outdoors and have fun.  You don’t need any special skills or to be a fantastic gardener, you just need to be prepared to join in.

The first community clean up will be happening at 11am on Wednesday 6th July.  We’re meeting at 11.00am at the Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre and will be out for about 2 hours.  Everyone is welcome to come, but under 16s need to be accompanied by an adult.  Litter picks and hi-viz will be provided, but you’d be advised to not wear your best clothes.

The first gardening session will be at 10am on Thursday 7th July, meeting at the Kingsway Court Community Garden (just off the junction of Kingsway and Danes Drive) and the sessions will run from 10.00am to 1.00pm.  Again you can just turn up.

We look forward to seeing you and enjoying a summer of getting outdoors and active! For more information please contact Sarah on 07943 080593 or sarah@dumbartonroad.com Our summer programme is funded by the Integrated Grant Fund.

20160601_DoW-signage-side01We recently had new permanent external signage installed at the De’ils On Wheels community bike workshop. The signage was installed at the side and front of the workshop and displays our opening hours, some key messages and our contact information – so if you pop by when the workshop is open you can clearly see where we are! And if you happen to pop by when we are closed you will be able to see when we are open and how to get in touch!

Many thanks to the Revolve Reuse programme which funded the signage and to Glasgow Housing Association who installed the signage for us and for their ongoing support.
