Observer Ethical Awards nomination

We are delighted to learn today that Emily Cutts of the Children’s Wood and Douglas Peacock of the North Kelvin Meadow Campaign have been jointly short-listed in the Observer newspaper’s Ethical Awards “unsung local hero” category. This is a shortlist of around 5 out of 300 entries nationwide. It is a very welcome recognition of all the hard work they have put in. They have of course immediately said that it is a team effort by the whole community, and so it is, but Emily and Douglas have by far the strongest vision and perseverance of us all.

If you are new to this site, please take a look around. Visit our Facebook page for the latest details and gossip.

The nation’s “unsung local hero” will be chosen from the shortlist by popular vote from now to 24th May. To vote for Emily and Douglas, please follow this link below:

The land is subject to a live planning application, which may come before the Planning Committee in the next few weeks. Glasgow City Council want to sell it to a private property developer for 90 luxury flats. If you think this green oasis should be saved, the simplest and fastest action is to sign our petition below:

Please share this petition with your friends. If you would like to do more then please follow the link in the above tab entitled ” Support us – Planning application – Phase 2″ Thank you for any support you can give us. This land is too precious to be built on and once its gone its gone forever.
