MISSING DENNISTOUN MAN FOUND POLICE at Shettleston are thanking the public for their assistance in tracing a man who had been missing from his home since Tuesday 5 February 2013. William Young (61) was last spotted leaving his home in Craigpark Drive, Dennistoun, at 8.30 in the morning and was reported missing soon after. Officers then carried out extensive enquiries, including using the Force’s helicopter and Mounted Branch. Local police and family members were in-

creasingly concerned for his well being since Mr Young had no mobile phone and little money. At the time Sergeant Graeme Leadbetter, Shettleston Police Office, said: “Mr Young requires daily medication which we know he does not have with him. He doesn’t have much money with him either and no access to a mobile phone. It is not like him to be out of touch for this length of time and we are concerned for his safety.

JOBS BOOST FOR EAST ENDERS An innovative partnership between three key public sector agencies has seen fourteen previously unemployed residents living in the Clyde Gateway area take up positions with a major employer in the city’s east end. Thanks to a programme designed and managed by Clyde Gateway and Jobs & Business Glasgow, The positions are with Glasgow Community & Safety Services (GCSS), whose headquarters since April 2012 have been at the Eastgate offices on London Road, Bridgeton and involve a range of activities including CCTV monitoring, driving, office admin and community engagement. The fourteen new starts began their work with GCSS at the end of April after being recruited through a programme designed and managed by Clyde Gateway and Jobs & Business Glasgow. Neil MacDonald, the Chair of Clyde Gateway said: “The provision of new jobs for Clyde Gateway residents is a vital and essential part of our regeneration efforts and I’m very pleased that GCSS, as one of the biggest employers in our area, is providing opportunities for local people. “I’m delighted also that with two further intakes planned for June and September we will soon have the position that GCSS will have 30 new recruits from across east end.” All of the new recruits are directly employed by Jobs & Enterprise Glasgow on a full-time one-year contract and placed following which GCSS, with the support of Jobs & Business Glasgow, will explore a number of options for the employees including permanent positions with GCSS or interviews with sub-

contractors and service providers, including those who will be supporting the delivery and management of security aspects of the 2014 Commonwealth Games Phil Walker, the Chief Executive of GCSS said: “One of the reasons we moved out to Bridgeton last year was to play our part in the fantastic regeneration that is well underway. Taking on local people is the best and most direct way we can make a difference. The new recruits have already had a warm welcome and have settled in quickly as valued members of the GCSS team and we are looking forward to welcoming more new colleagues in the months ahead.” Three of the new recruits are Grace Gallacher from Camlachie, Lisa Dott from Dalmarnock and Ashley McGibbon who lives in Bridgeton. Grace’s role is at the forefront of the work undertaken by GCSS as a uniformed Community Enforcement Officer (CEO) playing her part in making Glasgow a safer, cleaner place. Grace said: “I’ve only just started but already I’m getting a lot of satisfaction out of making a difference. There’s a load to enjoy about being a CEO, particularly the fact that every day is totally different and brings you into contact with people from all walks of life. I’m delighted to be given this opportunity and I’m determined to make the most of it.” Ashley and Lisa are both part of the admin support team based at Eastgate, a building which was recently awarded the 2013 ‘Best Commercial Workplace’ by the Scottish Branch of the British Council for Offices. Ashley said: “Eastgate is a great building to

work in and I’ve got the bonus of it being just around the corner from my home. I never imagined that an opportunity like this would be available right on my doorstep and I’m aiming to show everyone what I’m capable of so that when my initial contract is up I’ve got the best possible chance of securing a long-term post.” Lisa has been recruited by GCSS just a few weeks after being made redundant when the shop she previously worked in suddenly and unexpectedly closed down. She said: “It was a real shock when my previous boss decided to close down the business and I was very fortunate that within a couple of days I learned about the opportunities at GCSS from talking to the Clyde Gateway staff and going along to a jobs fair at the Olympia in Bridgeton. “I’m really enjoying working as part of the admin team supporting and helping the hundreds of GCSS team members who are out there on the streets of Glasgow every day really making a difference to the quality of life and I’m proud to be playing my part.” Calum Graham, Chief Executive of Jobs & Business Glasgow, said: “I am delighted that this exciting new programme, funded by Opportunities for All and Clyde Gateway is underway with the early result that Jobs & Business Glasgow have supported 14 young east end residents into positions with GCSS. In the coming months it is hoped that a further 16 local residents will also secure employment as part of a wider initiative that will enable us to create rewarding and stimulating job opportunities with GCSS for 65 young people from all across Glasgow”.

MAKING A MESS...... AND

NOT GETTING IN TROUBLE! London Road Nursery organise Eco Day

THIS week saw the Staff, parents and children of an East End nursery being encouraged to get muddy as part of an Eco day. Children were making mud pies in the specially designed “Mud Kitchen” in the grounds of the nursery and for once the damp Scottish weather was no barrier to their enjoyment. As part of the Eco Day, kids have also been bringing in empty tins from home to decorate and recycle as planters. The younger children from

the Toddler Room also created designs on plastic

bottles to be sold. A second hand book stall and a Raffle also featured in the event. The nursery is aiming to achieve Eco Flag status with Eco Schools Scotland with the children showing great interest in outdoor learning. The children will also be responsible for selling their products as part of their on-going interest in enterprise. Another aspect of the Eco Day is to teach pupils an awareness of money and the importance of other important skills for life, including the world of work. Congratulations to all the parents, staff and pupils from the ReGEN, we hope you had fun.

CROWNPOINT UNITED FIGHTING FIT ROYAL MARINES Sponsorship boost from Royal British Legion gives amateur footballers kick off CROWNPOINT United is getting a new look for next season’s Central Scottish AFL thanks to Scotland’s largest ex-service charity, the Royal British Legion Scotland (RBLS). The RBLS Glasgow & Western Counties Area is backing the Glasgowbased amateur football squad, which includes former British Armed Forces personnel, by kitting them out with a new strip in yellow and navy, the former Scottish away team kit and the charity’s own insignia colours. The division 3 team, who only joined the Scottish Amateur Football Association (SAFA) league last 2012-13 season and play at Crownpoint Sports Complex, lost out on promotion by just one point earlier this month, finishing fourth on the table. They are calling on veterans not just to support them but also to come and join them in training and help the team get fighting fit for the 2013-14 league challenge. On hand to present the team with their new colours was Andy Bryan, Chairman of the RBLS Glasgow & Western Counties Area, who said: “Encouraging healthy, sporting initiatives such as the Crownpoint United squad, may be a new venture for us, but it is one that’s very close to our hearts. As a charity, a great deal of our work involves issues surrounding ill health or disability. So, to be sponsoring the team, which in turn is supporting ex-servicemen in such a positive way, is a superb vehicle for the RBLS. “We are delighted the team are wearing our colours and helping

to raise the charity’s profile at games played across the Central Scottish AFL region. We call upon all veterans, their families and friends to support them in gaining promotion next season.” The new team kit carries the RBLS insignia and consists of a yellow top with navy stripes, along with navy shorts and socks, both with white stripes. It was the former Scotland away strip in 2010-11. Crownpoint United Manager John Tannahill said: “We feel really privileged to be wearing the RBLS colours and insignia, it is such a huge boost to the team - not just the veterans - and we can’t

thank the charity enough for its support. We see this as a great win-win situation for both parties, as we will help promote the RBLS and everything it represents. “We will also welcome everyone leaving the British Armed Forces to come and join us for our Thursday night training sessions at Crownpoint Sports Complex, or to follow us as supporters with their family and friends at our Sunday league games. It’s about companionship, as much as it is about recreation. While the boys were unlucky not to gain promotion at the end of last season, they are punching well above their weight and looking

forward to greater success in the year ahead. We are so proud of them all.” Crownpoint United already includes many veterans in the squad including goalkeeper Thomas Clark, a former Scottish Gunner who first put the team in touch with the RBLS, and Stuart Lambert, who served with the 1st Royal Tank Regiment. Derek Clark, brother of Thomas, who still serves with the Royal Logistics Corps based in Elgin, also plays with Crownpoint when on leave. To find out more about becoming involved with Crownpoint United, contact John Tannahill on 07821 508943.

LOCAL HOUSING ASSOCIATION RECOGNISES VOLUNTEERS MILNBANK Housing Association paid tribute to its volunteers and community helpers and said a big ‘Thank you’ at its Gala Day event held on 25 May. The Association wanted to recognise in a special way the efforts of those local people who make such a big difference to so many areas of its work and services by volunteering their time and skills to help others in their community. Bailie Elaine McDougall, accompanied by Paul Martin MSP, presented the certificates to volunteers and community helpers to mark National Volunteers Week which usually takes place from 1-7 June every year. Bailie McDougall said: “It gives me great pleasure to formally acknowledge the many residents who, for a number of years, have given their time to help their community. Well done to all of you” Glasgow Provan MSP Paul Martin said: “It is amazing the amount of effort and time that people give up to benefit their local community. It is great to see

them being acknowledged in such a public way by Milnbank Housing Association.” Milnbank Housing Association has a long history of involving local people in the work of the organisation on a voluntary basis through its management committee, youth Group, community events etc. In some cases generations of the same family have been volunteering and helping out over many years. Denise Robertson, the Association’s Community Engagement Worker and a local resident who has been volunteering for over 22 years. She said: “After attending the Association’s first gala day I wanted to get more involved in my community as it is good fun, enhances my social life and I genuinely enjoy meeting people” More recently, Milnbank Housing Association has been promoting its support for volunteering with the development of a new volunteering centre at Harcourt Drive in Dennistoun which will be opening

shortly, and the new Recycling Centre nearby in Roebank Street. “Both initiatives will encourage and support the involvement of local people in a range of services and projects including befriending, recycling, community gardening, driving and escorting and more - and which will help volunteers build skills, gain practical experience and do something worthwhile

in their local area. If you are interested in finding out more about volunteering and helping out locally you can contact Úna Gillon, 1 Culloden Street, Dennistoun,G31 3NX / phone 556 7617 or email: u.gillon@milnbank.org.uk and join thousands of people across the country who are discovering how volunteering can benefit them and their community.

TO RECEIVE FREEDOM OF THE CITY OF GLASGOW

THE Royal Marines will be awarded the city’s highest honour - the Freedom of the City - following a decision taken at a meeting of Glasgow City Council this month. The honour was confirmed after councillors approval of a motion by the council’s Veterans Champion, Councillor Malcolm Cunning, which was seconded by Springburn Councillor Gilbert Davidson. Councillor Cunning’s motion stated: “Council congratulates the Royal Marine Corps on its upcoming 350th anniversary in 2014. “Since its formation, the Royal Marines has enjoyed strong links with Glasgow and continues to have a permanent presence in the city, through the Glasgow detachment of the Royal Marines Reserve Scotland, which was raised in Glasgow in 1948. “Council wishes to demonstrate its highest respect for the proud history of the Royal Marine Corps and the dedication and sacrifices it continues to make to protect the interests of the United Kingdom. “Therefore, Council agrees to award the Freedom of the City of Glasgow to the Royal Marines, to publically acknowledge the regard in which the unit is held and highlight the strong relationship that continues between the Royal Marines and Glasgow.” Comedian Billy Connolly was the last person to receive the honour in 2010. Other recipients include: Dr Aung San Suu Kyi, Sir William Burrell, Andrew Carnegie, Field Marshall Kitchener, Marie Curie, Kenny Dalgleish, the Duke of Edinburgh, Sir Alex Ferguson, Lloyd George, David Livingstone, Lord Macfarlane, Nelson Mandela and Jim Watt. Lord Provost Sadie Docherty said: “I am delighted that the remarkable work of the Royal Marine is being recognised with the Freedom of the City. It will mark a wonderful 2014 for Glasgow, the year we host the Commonwealth Games, and the year this proud service cel-

ebrates its 350th anniversary.” Councillor Cunning added: “Glasgow houses the oldest Royal Marines Reserve unit in the United Kingdom. Next year is the regiment’s 350th birthday and our Royal Marines are acknowledged as the first and finest in the world. This will be a fitting tribute to their bravery.” Lieutenant Commander Graeme Fraser, Commanding Officer of Royal Marines Reserve (RMR) Scotland based in Govan, said: “This is a significant honour for Royal Marines Commandos throughout the whole of the UK. “The Royal Marines have very strong links with Glasgow and our tangible presence in the city is the reserves unit based in Govan since 1948, but the connections range wider in Scotland with additional reserves detachments in Dundee, Aberdeen and Edinburgh, as well as 43 Commando Royal Marines engaged in force protection at HM Naval Base Clyde and 45 Commando based at RM Condor in Arbroath. “And there are further historic links to the Highlands, particularly north of Fort William at Spean Bridge, home to wartime commando training centre, and now the poignant Commando Memorial. “This honour is particularly unusual in that it is for the entire Royal Marines Corps in honour of our 350th anniversary in 2014, and I know that my fellow marines based throughout the UK are equally humbled by and delighted with this significant and extraordinary recognition. “We look forward to forging still stronger links with the city during our 350th birthday next year – a year which is, of course, also particularly special for Glasgow as the host for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.” RMR Scotland’s Capt Larry Foden, the unit’s Adjutant responsible for discipline and personnel matters, attended at the City Chambers to welcome the councillors’ decision in person.

CALL FOR RESIDENTS TO HELP KEEP COMMUNITIES ‘SAFE AND SOUND PEOPLE living in GHA communities are being urged to play a part in making their homes and streets safer. And now the social landlord is calling on tenants and factored homeowners to become the eyes and ears of their community as part of a new ‘Safe and Sound’ campaign. Residents are being asked to report issues which blight communities and put lives at risk. They include late night parties, vandalism, street drinking, drug dealing, dog fouling and fire-raising. The campaign is the latest phase of a ground-breaking partnership between GHA, Police Scotland and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service – known as the Community Improvement Partnership – which was rolled out last year. GHA Chair Gordon Sloan said: “We want all of our tenants and factored homeowners to feel safe in their homes and communities.

“Our partnership between housing staff and police and fire officers is already making a real difference to communities all across Glasgow. “Now we are looking for people in our areas to help us make their neighbourhoods even better. People shouldn’t suffer in silence or put up with antisocial behaviour. Let us know and we can help.” The Community Improvement Partnership has already seen 15 police officers and a station manager from the fire service seconded to GHA to work side-by-side with housing staff on tackling crime and anti-social behaviour. Minister for Community Safety and Legal Affairs Roseanna Cunningham is backing the Safe and Sound campaign. She said: “Anti-social behaviour can be a matter of real concern to people in our communities, and it is

important it is acted upon. “The Scottish Government is fully supportive of initiatives that tackle crime and improve safety, such as the Community Improvement Partnership. It is already working well in areas across Glasgow and the results offer great reassurance to people across the city. “The ‘Safe and Sound’ campaign will build on the good work already done by GHA, police and fire and rescue services, and I will follow the campaign with interest.” As part of the campaign, tenants are also being urged to sign up for a free home fire safety visit. A firefighter will check the home for hazards and offer expert advice on how to reduce fire risks. Any customer who wants to report antisocial behaviour or a fire risk should speak to their Housing Officer or call 0800 561 5656. Callers can report any issues anonymously.

BEST WAY TO GET RESULTS Participants in the North West Sector’s latest RESULTS Programme, received their certificates from Celtic legend, George McCluskey at a lunch at Celtic Park in May. All of the participants in the Result Programme have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) the name for a collection of lung diseases such as chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive airways disease.

The RESULTS programme is run in partnership with Celtic Football Club. Over eight weeks, participants who can be referred by their GP or Health Professional can take part in an hour of tailored exercises, followed by an educational class by a designated speaker on topics such as healthy eating, medication, smoking cessation and advice around welfare benefits. Linda Harley, Health Improvement Senior for Long

Term Conditions, North East Sector, Glasgow City CHP, Health Improvement Team, who set up the programme said: “By participating in regular exercise, people are empowered to take charge of their health and fitness while socialising with other people who have a lung condition. “Celtic Park was chosen to host the Result Programme as it is in a unique position within the East End of Glasgow of being able to attract hard to reach clients due to its prominence within the football culture across Glasgow. “Previous courses held at this venue have attracted football supporters from various teams across Glasgow.

EARLY DETECTION SAVES LIVES – MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR SMEAR

11

Women urged to book a test this Awareness Week HEALTH workers are using the beginning of Cervical Screening Awareness Week to urge women to make an appointment to get a regular test. NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde will mark the start of the campaign on the 9th of June. Cervical cancer is cancer of the neck of the womb and can be treated easily if caught early as well as other ways to prevent it. Despite this, around 300 women are diagnosed with it every year in Scotland and around 100 women in Scotland die from cervical cancer each year. The most effective way to prevent cervical cancer is to go for regular cervical screening - smear tests. Mags McCarthy who works in the North East Health Improvement Team and has a remit for Cancer Screening said: “Smear tests can detect precancerous/abnormal cells and the detection and successful treatment of these cells usually prevents the occurrence of cancer. “All too often women put other people before themselves, “I want to see ‘Women doing this for themselves’. That’s why during the week beginning 10 June which is Cervical Screening Awareness Week, my colleague Siobhan and I will be in Health Centre’s across North East Glasgow, encouraging women, if they haven’t already done so, to make an appointment with their doctor to have their smear test done” Not going for a smear test is one of the biggest risk factors for de-

veloping cervical cancer. Mags and Siobhan also give general Cancer Awareness talks to local organisations including parents at Nursery schools. Mandy Muir, a parent at Garthamlock Nursery School who attended a talk said: “It’s not the most pleasant of things but it’s very important you get your smear test done. It could save your life!” Robert Music, Director of Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, the UK’s only charity dedicated to women and those close to them affected by cervical cancer and cervical abnormalities said: “Each year the UK screening programme saves 5,000 lives yet one in four Scottish women are not attending their cervical screening test. It is great to see the North East Health Improvement Team’s targeted campaign to encourage more women to attend this life saving test” At present 73.2 % of women in North East Glasgow do go for screening this is evidence that women are getting the message and taking cervical screening seriously. However, given that cervical screening prevents 8 out of 10 cervical cancers from developing we want all women to know the

importance of going for regular smear tests. Dr Paul Ryan, local GP and Clinical Director, North East Sector, Glasgow Community Health Partnership said: “Cervical cancer is not simple to detect. The most common symptom is bleeding from the vagina at any time other than your period. Having regular cervical screening is the most effective way to prevent cervical cancer and I urge all women to take up the invitation from their GP to attend for screening. “Cervical cancer is usually caused by a common infection called the human papilloma virus (HPV). Using a condom when you have sex reduces the risk of contracting HPV. Girls aged between 12 and 13 can now receive an HPV vaccine at school to prevent HPV, which leads to many cases of cervical cancer.” For information about cancer or to arrange a talk contact Mags McCarthy or Siobhan Harkin on 0141 232 0167/0172.

INTERGENERATIONAL PROJECT ACKNOWLEDGED AT CITY YOUTH CEREMONY Whitehill kids teach Care Home residents how to stay in touch using the internet PUPILS from Whitehill Secondary School in Glasgow’s East End were recognised for their work on an intergenerational IT project following a partnership between J.P. Morgan, The Prince’s Trust Scotland and Glasgow City Council. The pupils attended an awards ceremony at the Glasgow Science Centre on Monday 20th May where the young people from across the city were recognised for their achievements in education. The S4 xl Club at Whitehill Secondary School worked with residents at the Carmichael House care home, Bridgeton, to demonstrate how they could use Skype to keep in touch with friends and family abroad as well as using Google Earth to revisit areas they had previously lived in or visited over 30 years ago. The young people spent a day at the care home demonstrating how to use the equipment and software programmes and developed an information booklet. The project gave residents the chance to learn new skills, connect with their past and helped promote stronger intergenerational links within the community. The Prince’s Trust Scotland xl club programme is being delivered in 20 schools throughout Glasgow, supporting over 400 young people. Investment from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation allowed The Trust to assess how IT was being applied across the five key areas the programme focuses, before developing a new framework to ensure IT skills are embedded across the curriculum. The partnership also provided vital training for those who run the xl programme to ensure effective delivery of key IT employability skills across participating schools in Glasgow.

The IT learning topics the young people covered include how to create a CV, using job search engines, creating mini-enterprise facilities to trade online as well as using social networking to improve community relations. The Whitehill Secondary S4 xl club will be awarded the JPMorgan Outstanding Use of IT Award at the ceremony, which will also see young people being recognised in categories such as, Confident Individuals, Successful Learners, Effective Contributors and Responsible Citizens. Paul Murphy, Head of J.P. Morgan Scotland commented: “As a significant employer in Glasgow, we recognise the importance of contributing to the community in which we operate. During the past couple of years, through funding from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation and employee engagement, we have focussed our CSR programme in Scotland solely on supporting initiatives helping to enable youth employment. J.P. Morgan is delighted to be partnering with The Prince’s Trust to develop critical IT skills, necessary for future employment.” Alan Kennedy, Operations Director at The Prince’s Trust added: “We were delighted when J. P. Morgan chose to support The Trust’s xl clubs in Glasgow. The skills and expertise delivered through the project are invaluable and will

enhance the young people’s ability to interface with an increasingly online learning and employment environment. “The project with Carmichael House demonstrates the young people’s achievements in developing new skills and also their newfound confidence in delivering this training to an external audience. Our thanks to J.P. Morgan for providing the young people with this excellent opportunity.” Councillor Stephen Curran, Executive Member for Education and Young People, Glasgow City Council said: “Schools in Glasgow work extremely hard at forging meaningful links with local companies to equip young people with the relevant skills for the world of work. “Initiatives like this provide invaluable opportunities for our young people, raising aspirations and attainment and we want this for every child in the city.” Pictured here are Taylor Winchester, Natasha Fee, Rebecca Nicol, Emma Thomson, Liam Tudhope and Jack Kelly.

EAST END ‘POSITIVE’ ABOUT HOSTING COMMONWEALTH GAMES Four out of five residents of Glasgow’s East End think the Commonwealth Games will have a positive impact in their area according to a study published this week. Over a thousand people from Bridgeton, Calton, Camlachie, Dalmarnock, Gallowgate and Parkhead were asked their views in summer 2012 on the impact of significant investment in improved infrastructure, sports facilities and housing associated with the Games. This is the first part of a five year community study to measure the success of the Scottish Government’s Legacy 2014 programme. The survey shows: • 81 per cent think the 2014 Commonwealth Games will have a positive impact in their local area; • 76 per cent support, or strongly support, Glasgow hosting the Games – levels improved during and after London 2012; • 44 per cent thought their neighbourhood had improved in the last three years; • 37 per cent agreed they have influence in decisions made about their local area. The survey also identified the need for further improvements to the environment that can be addressed by regeneration and preparations for the Games, such as: • Many people (75 per cent) thought their local environment was untidy, suffering problems of rubbish and litter; • Feelings of safety walking in the area at nighttime were lower (by 11 percentage points) than across the city as a whole. Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport Shona Robison, said: “The 2014 Commonwealth Games are central to the transformation of the east end of Glasgow, regenerating the area and creating physical, economic and social benefits for all. “With the new Emirates stadium in place, the transformation of Bridgeton Cross, the creation of the Athletes Village and the Tollcross swimming pool being upgraded to a world-class standard, the investment to date has seen a dramatic change in the local landscape. “As part of our firm commitment to delivering a lasting legacy from the Games, it’s vital we undertake robust evaluation in the run up to 2014 and beyond to understand how the Games are impacting on the lives and health of our communities.

“These study results provide us with a clear picture of the views and opinions of the people living at the heart of the Games action, one we believe we can build on as Games time draws nearer.” Professor of Urban Studies at the University of Glasgow Ade Kearns, principal investigator for the study, said: “The survey findings show that parts of the East End of Glasgow are already changing as a result of developments over the past few years, and that residents are aware of these improvements. But the results also show the need, and indeed the scope, for further action to achieve the legacy aims identified for the Commonwealth Games, for example around physical activity and neighbourhood quality. “This initial survey is an important baseline for measuring change over time and the effects of regeneration and legacy programmes within our study cohort. As researchers, we are very pleased that the Scottish Government and other sponsors are supporting a long-term study of this kind in the host communities of the East End of the city.” Stewart Harris, Chief Executive of sportscotland, added: “sportscotland is using Glasgow 2014 as a catalyst to accelerate our plans for implementing a world-class sporting system at all levels, and we want people from all over Scotland to be inspired by hosting this top-level multi-sport event and to take part in more sport and physical activities. “The communities in the East End of Glasgow are benefitting tremendously from being able to use world-class facilities at the Emirates Arena and Tollcross International Swimming Centre, and will shortly also have access to the Glasgow Green Hockey Centre.” The ‘GoWell’ study in the east end of Glasgow, a partnership between the Scottish Government, NHS Health Scotland and sportscotland, will record over five years the changes to health and quality of life of east end communities as a result of the significant investment in the area. The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring the Games delivers positive and lasting benefits for the whole of Scotland through Legacy 2014, the Government’s programme to capitalise on the economic, social and cultural advantages of the Games.

The Greater Easterhouse Alcohol Awareness Project wins prestigious national award THE Greater Easterhouse Alcohol Awareness Project (GEAAP) has won a prestigious GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Award for its outstanding contribution to improving health in East Glasgow, GSK and The King’s Fund made the announcement at an award ceremony held at London’s Science Museum on Thursday the 16th of May. GEAAP provides a wide variety of services in the North East of Glasgow including prevention and education, one-to-one counselling, tenancy support, befriending, group work and it’s award winning alcohol awareness programme delivered in schools and via it’s website www.youngboozebusters. com. In 2011 an independent cost-benefit analysis demonstrated that from 2008-2011 for every £1 in public funding received, the project had returned a saving of £10.17 to the public purse. The GSK IMPACT Awards, GSK’s flagship UK corporate

responsibility programme organised in partnership with The King’s Fund, is seen as a ‘seal of excellence’ in the sector. As well as as receiving funding support during a difficult financial climate, they will take part in a training programme hosted by The King’s Fund that provides training, development and networking opportunities. Katie Pinnock, Director of UK Corporate Contributions at GSK, said: ‘GEAAP is a respected grass roots organisation with strong community focus and obvious service user involvement. It is responding to a real need in the local community and has found an innovative approach to meeting a very hard-tomanage health need. Their reach into schools with their Booze Buster programme is particularly impressive, engaging children giving them help to make informed decisions later in life. We congratulate them on winning their award.’ Stewart McKay GEAAP’s

manager said: ‘For a small community based project in the East End of Glasgow to win such a prestigious, national award is a tremendous achievement and a testament to the dedication and hard work of all our staff and volunteers. This award will make a significant contribution to the future of GEAAP and our work with service users’. The calibre of award is reflected in its judging panel who chose the winners, which this year includes Professor Steve Field, Deputy National Medical Director at NHS England (health inequalities); the journalist, Fiona Philips; Peter Wanless, CEO of The Big Lottery; Gilly Green, Head of UK Grants at Comic Relief; Sir Christopher Gent, Chairman of GSK; and, Sir Chris Kelly, Chair of The King’s Fund.

Choose life, not a knife Knife crime can have a number of effects on everyone that’s involved in the crime. Individual cases and circumstances mean that these can be quite complex and more serious than what you might think. Have you ever seen an article in the paper about a young person being stabbed? These cases often make the news headlines as people are shocked that young people are not only tragically the victims but the offenders as well. These kinds of crimes can affect the entire local community. People are often sad to see and find out what really happens on their streets. It may increase the fear of crime in the local community. Some young people may feel that if other young people are carrying knives they should be doing the same meaning there are more knives on the street meaning more

people are likely to get hurt. If you are stabbed the wound and trauma to the body could tragically result in death. Although some people believe there are ‘safe’ areas of the body to stab this isn’t true. You have arteries which carry your precious blood all over your body. So a stab wound in the legs and arms should be treated as seriously as those in the neck or chest. If you are stabbed and survive you could still experience long term physical effects. If you look at a stab wound it is usually a short wound on the surface of the skin - but very deep in your body, this will of course vary depending on the type of weapon used. This type of internal wound means that the affected area may be prone to infection and as a result never heal properly. Ask yourself a question - Will the person who

WEST PREPARE FOR DENMARK CUP

THE prospect of representing Scotland at this summer’s Denmark Cup should hold no fears for the brand-new SYFA West Region Under-14 Squad. Head Coach Iain King and his backroom staff have already been impressed with the talent on view at training sessions and friendly games against Boys’ Club and Pro-Youth teams. The latest encouraging signs came during a 5-2 win against Motherwell F.C. (2000 team) at K-Park Academy, East Kilbride. Three 30-minute periods were kicked-off in style, when Steven Robertson slid home their opening goal, and a Scott Simpson cut-back was finished by Andy Dallas. Robertson added No 3, and although ‘Well reduced the leeway after a raft of changes, normal service was resumed through Alberto Vezza and Kyle McDonald on the hour mark. Motherwell netted a second goal in the final 30 minute slot, and Fir Park Head of Children’s Football, Paul Burns, was very impressed with their hosts.

He said: “I think they will do us proud in the Denmark Cup. “It was heartening to see the West boys look to play possession football all the time, and play their way out of trouble.” Iain King revealed: “The players are progressing and their discipline in playing to the system we have set out has been excellent.” Meanwhile, West Region Under-19s stunned Drumchapel United Under-21 with a 5-3 friendly victory at Braehead. Matt Humphries (2) and man of the match Paddy Woods netted first half goals. United struck twice on the re-start, but Humphries raced clear to complete his hat-trick. Drumchapel replied again, and Kyle Gallacher wrapped up an excellent display with a fifth West goal.

Duncan McNaught, Chief Executive of West of Scotland Housing Association said: “We are exploring a potential partnership because we are looking to the future and the financial challenges that all housing associations will face in the next few years. These challenges include welfare reform which is likely to reduce the income available to all associations, and the need to invest more money in our houses to achieve higher energy efficiency targets which could help protect our tenants from rising energy costs. “We need to adapt, and believe it is not an option to do nothing in the face of the challenges ahead.” WSHA believes that making this positive change will make the Association fitter for these challenges. It will help ensure the Association continues to be able to provide the best homes and services possible for its tenants and communities in the long term.

Caught in a Flash!!!! Police in Maryhill are celebrating after catching a prolific flasher! A number of incidents have been reported since the turn of the year involving a male near to Queen Margaret Drive and Maryhill Road flashing at females and students in the area. The male went one flash too far recently however and his identity was ‘exposed’ when he flashed plain clothes police officers! A 31 year old male was arrested and has since been remanded in custody awaiting trial.

or too risky a target, he will hopefully move on.

Home Security – Theft by Housebreaking Prevention Advice Following a recent increase in acquisitive crime across many areas in the North and East of Glasgow Police Scotland have issued the following prevention advice to its residents. Theft by Housebreaking leaves victims wondering why the housebreaker picked on their house. To find out you need to consider “How does a housebreaker’s mind work?” Housebreaking, on the whole, is an opportunist crime. A housebreaker will select his target because it offers him the best opportunity to carry out his crime undetected and to diffuse a number of obstacles in his way. A building that presents itself as unoccupied and insecure is far more likely to be targeted than one which is properly secured. • “Side gates open” • “Accessible windows open” • “Ladders left out, allowing access to otherwise inaccessible windows” • “Garden tools available to force entry”. • “Untrimmed hedges and high fences preventing natural surveillance” Each of these makes access to the building far simpler and is an indication to the prospective housebreaker that it’s worth a second look. The question is, are the occupants in?: • Milk bottles or parcels on the doorstep • Newspapers or mail in the letter box • Unlit houses after dark • All windows shut in very hot weather These are signs telling the housebreaker that he is unlikely to be disturbed in the course of his work. Naturally, circumstances may arise when such situations may be unavoidable. If he can take measures that tell the housebreaker that this building is too difficult

Make it look as if your house is occupied: • Install timers which switch lights or radios on and off automatically • Have a neighbour or friend pop round to clear your letter box or doorstep • Encourage a neighbour to park on your drive • If going out after dark, draw the curtains, leave some lights on and a radio playing

Are you leaving a thief the key to your house?: • Never leave a spare key concealed anywhere near the front door – burglars know all the hiding places. • Prevent letter box housebreakings by storing keys away from the front door. • Do not label your house keys in case you lose them and they fall into the wrong hands. Remove temptation • Where possible, try to keep valuables out of sight from windows.

If you are away for extended periods: • Cancel the delivery of milk and newspapers • Disconnect the telephone answering machine, or reword your greeting message to give the impression that you are only temporarily unable to answer • Enlist the help of a neighbour, friend or relative to keep a regular eye on your property and keep the front door clear of deliveries • If you are prepared to leave a key with a willing neighbour/relative, ask for curtains to be drawn and lights to be put on at night • Check your insurance policy. Some insurance policies for contents don’t cover you if you are away for more than 30 days • Set your intruder alarm • If you do not have an alarm, consider investing a few pounds in a dummy alarm box, it may well deter the opportunist thief. Insp Donald Leitch, Kirkintilloch Police office said: “All of this seems a lot of information to take in, but it is good advice to protect yourself and your property against those who are intent on taking advantage of any opportunities to commit crime. One crime of this nature is one too many, and often the victims are the most vulnerable in the community. We would urge anyone with information on those carrying out this kind of crime or who sees anything suspicious to report it to the Police as soon as possible. If you have any suspicions

THE

at all, phone the police. Remember, it would be helpful to the police if you could provide good descriptions of any persons and/or vehicle involved, including make, colour and registration number, where possible. Please be vigilant at all times and do not to make it easy for thieves. Any advice or information please contact your local police office using the new Police Scotland Non Emergency phone number 101 or crime stoppers 0800 555 111 ”. Police Scotland Football Team Win British Cup!!!! The old Strathclyde Police Football Team played up a storm recently when they went to Northern Ireland to play in the final of the British Cup! Playing against the current holders of the British Cup, Police Service of Northern Ireland, this was the last chance for Strathclyde Police to be represented before becoming the newly branded Police Scotland. The game was played on Tuesday 21 May 2013 at 3pm and Strathclyde went a goal up in the first half with Gary Arbuckle scoring. The second half wasn’t going so well when Strathclyde had a man sent off and were forced to play the final 20 minutes with 10 men. With only injury time remaining Strathclyde team broke away and scored a winner from a great individual goal from Scott Chatham. This was the second time the trophy has been won in recent years by the team under the management of Roland Fabiani and will of course be the last time for Strathclyde Police! Well done to all those involved in making this last piece of history for Strathclyde Police and best of luck for the future Police Scotland Football Team! Prolific Shoplifter Arrested! Police in Kirkintilloch are celebrating after a prolific shoplifter was arrested! The male was wanted for several shopliftings in the local area from various retail premises and is well know to local shopkeepers and police. Officers who were enquiring into the crime spree managed to trace the 30yr

old male and apprehend. He subsequently appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court where he pled guilty and was given a custodial sentence. A menace to society taken off our streets! Travel Safe There are a number of dangers that you can encounter when out travelling, as well as a number of precautions that you can take to ensure that you remain safe. Police Scotland has issued the below advice that you can follow when travelling by car, by foot, by public transport, by taxi and by bike. Car Travel When driving, if someone attempts to flag you down, drive on until you come to a service station, or somewhere busy, where you can safely call the police. Keep car doors locked when driving and keep your valuables out of sight. If you require to have a window open, only wind it down a little. Winding the window down further than necessary will leave you in a vulnerable position, especially when stopped in traffic. If you think you are being followed by another vehicle, try to alert others by flashing your lights and sounding your horn. If you can, keep driving until you come to a busy place where you can contact the police. Walking When out walking, always attempt to walk facing the traffic so that a car cannot pull up behind you. If you often walk home alone, purchase a personal attack alarm: carry it in your hand so that, if required, you can use it immediately. Make sure that the alarm is designed to continue sounding if dropped to the ground. If you think someone is following you, check by crossing to the other side of the street - cross more than once if necessary. If the person behind you crosses also and you believe that your suspicions are confirmed,

enter a pub or a busy place and contact the police. Avoid using a phone box in the street as this gives the person following you an opportunity to trap you. If you regularly go jogging or cycling, try to vary your route and the time you go. Also, stick to well-lit roads with pavements and avoid wooded areas. Remember, if you wear headphones, you will be unable to hear someone approaching you from behind. Don’t take short-cuts through dark alleyways, parks or waste ground. Travelling by Taxi Check that the taxi that arrives for you is the one that you ordered by asking the driver the name of the taxi company that he works for and by asking him to name the person he is supposed to collect - do not volunteer your name. Ask the taxi company for a description of the car, make of car and colour - and verify that the information is correct when the taxi cab arrives. If you are returning home, ask the driver not to drive away until you are safely inside your home. If alone, do not sit beside the driver. If you do so, you will place yourself in a more vulnerable position. Travelling on Public Transport Try to stay away from isolated bus stops, especially after dark. On an empty bus, sit near the driver. On a train, sit in a compartment where there are other people - ideally, one which will allow you to alight close to your station’s exit. Check to see where the nearest emergency chain is located. Travelling by Bike Security mark your bike using a UV pen - the mark should include your home postcode and house number. Keep a photograph of the bike and a note of any other distinguishing features. These measures will help to identify the cycle if it is recovered at a later stage. Don’t leave your bicycle in isolated places. Always lock your cycle even if you are leaving it unattended for a short period of time. Lock your bicycle through the frame.

Lock the wheels. Remove small parts that cannot be readily secured. Where possible, lock your cycle to a fixed structure using a good quality lock. Knife Crime With the summer months approaching Police Scotland are keen to prevent any increase in gang fighting and knife crime as is often associated with this time of year. Often incidents of this type are pre-organised through social networking sites alerting many people to their existence thus increasing the numbers of people involved. Most people will never experience knife crime firsthand, but the consequences for those who do can be devastating. Police Scotland is working hard to change attitudes towards the carrying of knives. You can help protect yourself and other by making wise choices. Don’t Carry a Knife Even if you don’t intend to use it, you are putting yourself at risk if you carry a weapon. You are also putting yourself in a position where you could kill someone. A single stab wound can be fatal. Never Look After a Knife for Someone Else Most knife incidents in Scotland involve young men between the ages of 16 and 25. Sometimes a teenage girl will carry a knife in her handbag for her boyfriend in the belief that she wont be searched. Police can, and do use hand-held metal detectors to seek out hidden weapons. If you carry a knife, the chances are that you will be caught. Keep School Safe and Blade-free Knife possession and knife crime are rare in Scottish schools. However, if you know of someone who takes a knife to school, it is important that you tell someone. Report your worries to a teacher, or telephone Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where you can pass the information anonymously.

JUNIOR FOOTBALL LATEST MARYHILL Juniors have won promotion from the Central District Second Division. Boss Brian Heron and Coach George Wall have finally achieved their long-term target at the third time of asking. The Lochburn Park club finished runners-up behind champions Cambuslang Rangers. PETERSHILL Juniors defender/midfielder Stewart Maxwell has been appointed manager of Kirkintilloch Rob Roy. Maxi, a former player at Adamslie Park, has brought former Auchinleck Talbot legend Billy Thomson, and ex-Bo’ness United manager Paul Ronald onto his backroom staff. He told Re-Gen Sport: “I am really looking forward to the challenge. “There are exciting times ahead for Rabs. I will use different things I have learned from various managers over the years, plus a few of my own ideas on how to deal with players both at training sessions, and during games.” Petershill striker Stephen McGladrigan could miss the start of pre-season after struggling through the second half of the current campaign with a floating bone in his ankle, which requires surgery. ASHFIELD Juniors manager Stevie Rankin will be in charge of Irvine Meadow next season following ten seasons at Saracen Park. He replaces Chris Strain Senior. It is expected he will bring in his own backroom staff and players over the coming weeks. ST ROCH held a well-attended Annual General Meeting, which saw the following appointments: President - Jim Friel; Secretary - Chris McMenamin; Treasurer - Frank Brady. Former President Ted Crolly and Joe Smith (Vice President) stood down. The son/father management pairing of John Fallon Junior and Senior both received a “vote of confidence” as they set about rebuilding after being relegated from the Central First Division. Network Private Hire have been confirmed as kit sponsors. Manheim Car Auctions and McGhee Bakery will also be helping the Provanmill Park club.
