This survey is for everyone living in Glasgow’s Ward 6 (Pollokshields, Shawlands, Strathbungo, Craigton, Dumbreck and neighbouring areas).
Ward 6 Community Choices is a project which will fund £200,000 worth of community work in Glasgow’s Ward 6. A Residents Panel made up of local people is designing the process to give out this funding, and they want to hear from you about the issues you feel are important in the area.
Message from Jessica Evans
Hello, I am a masters student at the University of Glasgow. I am carrying out research in Pollokshields, facilitated by the Pollokshields Trust. I would like to speak to individuals in the community who have views on antisocial behaviour & disorder in the area and ask them a few questions regarding youth disorder, perceptions of the area and community relations. These interviews will last about an hour depending on you as a participant. I will be writing this up for my university work, but any discussions will be annoymised. I will also be writing a short report for the Pollokshields Trust to use locally.
If you are interested in taking part and having a chat about these points or would like more information on this study, please message me on Facebook or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The clean ups have been increasing in size and activity and below is a schedule for the rest of the year.
We’re looking for zone captain to cover zone 1. If you’re interested please get in touch.
Following a spate of burglaries targeted at Asian households, please see advice from Police Scotland to keep your home safe.
The Minister of Community and Safety, Ash Denham, has set up a consultation on fireworks and the government would like to:
Hear your views on how you use and enjoy fireworks, and the impact fireworks have on you and your community. I would like to hear your views and ideas on what action we can take to ensure fireworks continue to be enjoyed safely and responsibly.
A consultation event
will be taking place here in Pollokshields on the 18th February at 5pm in the Pollokshields Community Centre.
In the last few months we’ve been moving the conversation of fireworks by working with local public agencies and participating in the Stakeholder Group that MSP Nicola Sturgeon and MP Alison Thewliss helped establish. As a community we should help inform the conversation at a government and national level.
Please sign up to the event.
