Rubbish Clean-up!

Join us on 15 November to clean up the North Kelvin Meadow

As part of its campaign to turn the former Clouston Street playing fields into a multi-use green space, the North Kelvinside Green Space Community Initiative is organising a Meadow Clean-up Campaign. Join us on Saturday, 15 November from 11 am onwards and help turn what is currently a wasteland and unofficial dumping ground into the North Kelvin Meadow.

We will be assembling at the Clouston Street entrance to the North Kelvin Meadow. Bin bags will be provided and we’ll make arrangements with the Council for the rubbish we collect to be uplifted.

...and turn it into a community green space

...and turn it into a community green space

Please join us if you can. This is a first step towards creating the North Kelvin Meadow, which will provide a multi-use green space for the local community. The Council is opposing the North Kelvin Meadow plan, so the more people who turn up the better. That will send a clear message to the Council that the local community wants the former playing fields to be turned into the North Kelvin Meadow.

Guidelines

If you are coming along, please observe these simple guidelines:

1. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

2. Protective gloves should be worn at all times when collecting rubbish.

3. If you find a syringe, please do not touch it. Inform the Council, who will organise for any syringes to be removed.

We look forward to seeing you on 15 November!

    It would be a crying shame if this land was wasted on another shoddy block of flats. Glasgow seems to be awash with cheap blocks that go up in a few months and turn into eyesores very quickly. Very few developments actually address housing shortages as they are purely for profit and rent or sell at a price only people on decent incomes can afford – and there is never a shortage of housing for people with decent incomes. This is potentially a lovely spot with just a a little TLC required and some knowledge that it is there and there to be used. I think you are doing a fantastic thing in motivating people to own their green spaces. Good luck.

    Part of the beauty of Glasgow is it’s green spaces which are slowly but surely being eaten into. We have a responsiblity to try and preserve these areas.

    Sounds like a nice plan – I hope to be there. I had some great times on that land as a kid.
