Dennistoun Community Together meeting - from 6.30pm upstairs at Whitehill Pool on Thursday 26th April (tonight).

Hi there. I'm a sometime lurker, but it's time to jump in. Hope this topic's in the right place for this post. It's a heads-up for a community group that's aiming to kickstart some positive grass-roots activities as a counter to the dog fouling, fly tipping, vandalism and car parking, and dispersal order issues.

Things are really gathering momentum now and following on from previous meetings over the last couple of months, we have a board and a constitution and we're at the point where various aims and objectives have been identified.

Projects and activities currently underway or being organised include: a Summer Celidh / a Skills Bank / Friends of Alexandra Park / All Abilities Chess / a Local Litter Pick-up / Philosophy Group / Floral Trail / Car(less) Boot Sale / Farmers & Craft Market / Photography Group / Potential Development of a New Allotment Space.

If any of the above interests you then we'd be pleased to welcome you tonight. All levels of involvement are welcome, from just listening in through to getting involved in the organisation of an activity. Everyone is welcome.

Sorry for the late notice. If you're unable to make tonight's meeting, there's one scheduled for next week too. Same time, same place.

Welcome to the Boards DCT biggrin.gif

It sounds as if you guys are really making an effort in the Community with so many positive ideas.
Good luck tonight at your Meeting, hope you have a great turnout. biggrin.gif

Support on any level is appreciated. We're trying to put in a modest effort towards developing the community spirit rather than just complaining to councillors and MPs about the usual annoyances (which is of course worth doing also). So far it seems to be heading in positive directions. There's quite a few folk involved at the mo who are keen to make things happen. I'll try and keep y'all posted on how things go.
In association with Glasgow City Council, Dennistoun Community Together has organised a "Clean Glasgow" event for Dennistoun on Saturday 5th May. Meet at Whitehill Pool at 2.30pm - equipment supplied. Come and lend a hand!

Look out for the natty posters popping up in the area (see attachment).

Hope to see some of you there!

And there's a meeting this Thusday (3rd May) from 6.30pm upstairs at Whitehill Pool too.
