We were successful in an application to Zero Waste Scotland for some assistance to select a preferred supplier for the area. Our aim with this project is to improve the service for the businesses along with saving money. The preferred supplier will be announced in March.
We are pulling together quotations for hanging baskets in Shawlands. Most of these will be hung from the lamp posts however in areas such as Deanston Drive where there are older lighting columns and Minard Road where there are no columns at the shops we will have to get permission from a number of businesses to have brackets attached to the shopfronts.
The Southside Fringe will be taking place 11th-27th May so if any business would like to register to become a venue please get in touch. “The Southside Fringe has really put the area on the map with it’s huge celebration of diversity of talent, skills and crafts bringing people together, and being an immeasurable boost to local people, business, culture and attracting visitors to what the Southside of the city has to offer!” – Gavin Mitchell – Boaby the Barman, Still Game www.southsidefringe.org.uk/
BUSKERS' FESTIVAL - WE NEED YOUR VOTE!
We have applied to 'OurPlaceFund' for funding to hold a Buskers' Festival in Shawlands. This fund is for community groups to put on cultural events and art activities, celebrating people and talent from their area. We hope to bring the streets alive with entertainment along with arts workshops for the kids to get involved. Only the projects with the most amount of votes will get the funding for their activity so please use the link below to vote, encourage your staff to vote along with family and friends. ourplacefund.participare.io/shared/proposal/f185748a-1767-4de0-96c1-40d0b766af6f
Discussions with Glasgow City Council regarding banners on the lamp posts are ongoing and we hope to have these in place for spring/summer.
