Glasgow City Council and Glasgow Life have submitted a planning application for an Active Travel Management Plan in Pollok Country Park. This Plan improves access to and within the park by promoting public transport and pedestrian links, modifying private car access and vehicular routes within the park, and improving connectivity to local areas.
Please see below information/request from the south Glasgow Heritage Environment Trust. If you want to contribute which would be great please contact the Trust direct.
We’re collecting photos using the hashtag #SouthsideLockdownLens for our open access archive of South Glasgow. Please do send any photos you’d like to contribute (window rainbows, park walks, crafts, tenement life etc) by email or Twitter. You can learn more about the project and get ideas here:
Huge thanks to Glasgow South Side Road Runners who have donated the cost of the renewal of our Public Liability Insurance for 2020-2021. It is very much appreciated and will allow our work parties and other planned activities to go ahead as soon as normal service is resumed.
A spot of gardening is on the agenda for our work party on Monday 16th March – in the herbaceous garden at Pollok House to be exact. Please meet at the Pergola in the herbaceous garden at 1.30pm ready to work wearing old clothes, boots and work gloves. All over 18s welcome! Equipment will be provided. (The herbaceous garden is located to the left of Pollok house when you are facing the river – it has black painted railings- it is the only garden with a timber pergola)
We’re hoping friends and supporters of Pollok Country Park can take action today to support us by voting, and then encouraging others to vote in support of our two exciting grant applications, in this year’s ‘Wee Green Grants’ Community Choices public vote. Voting is open now, until the 20th March.
Once you have voted (and confirmed your ballot!), please look out for our social media posts and like and share them, to help encourage others to support us too. Forward this email perhaps, or Like and share our social media posts
There are a total of 28 projects to choose from, and everybody who registers gets three votes, so as well as our two projects, be sure to use your other vote to support one of the many projects supporting and developing Glasgow’s parks and open spaces. You can see all the projects, and vote, at: https://weegg.communitychoices.scot/
Our two projects, which we’re very excited about, include Replacement of 5 park benches using recycled wood and funds to support our Pollok Wildlife Garden renovation.
