*** Attention ***

After several recent fires that rocked the East Pollokshields community the corner of Albert Drive and Kenmure Street is a space in need of some tender loving care.Pollokshields Community Council is seeking to appoint an artist to engage with the local community, design, project manage and deliver a temporary installation to improve the hoarding boards that surround the derelict space.Making the building safe for residents is a long process involving various parties. In the meantime we want to lift the spirits of affected residents and bring the community together by creating a new focal point for the Cross.A Creative Corner for Albert Cross aims to raise the aspirations of the local community and encourage local conversations about its past, present and future. It will also form part of a wider community-led regeneration plan for Albert Drive and East Pollokshields.


Ward 6 Community Choices What are the issues for people living in Ward 6?

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.

Research Project on Pollokshields

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 2421554e@student.gla.ac.uk.

Thank you!
