WHY ARE THEY NOT IN “ACCORD”

PRIOR to being returned un-opposed as First Minister, Alex Salmond joined newly elected Shettleston MSP John Mason and East End Councillors, Alison Thewliss, David Turner and David McDonald at a meeting with carers and service users at the closure threatened Accord Centre in Dalmarnock. The Accord Centre which provides day care service for people with learning disabilities is due to close to make way for the Commonwealth Games car park and athletes transport hub. The loss of this vital service has been fought every step of the way by the East Carers group, service users, families and friends. The closure of the Accord centre leaves the east end with just one day care facility in Riddrie. At the meeting Carers presented the first minister with information from minutes of a previous meeting of the Community Health and Care Partnership which explained that the service offered at the accord would be replaced in a new/re-furbished building. This stands in contrasts to the Councils current view which is the close the Accord and not replace the service. This is part of a wider Council policy called Personalisation which has seen a round of large cuts to people’s personal budgets. David McDonald, the SNP spokesperson on Social Care said of the meeting; “It was great that the First Minister could join carers and service users from the East End at the Accord Centre and to give them his support in their fight against Glasgow City Council’s proposals to close the centre and cut this much valued service. The East End of Glasgow must not lose out on services as a result of the Commonwealth Games, the closure of the Accord leaves just one day centre for people with learning disabilities, and even

this centre is going to be outwith the price range for people as the Council are also introducing a series of brutal cuts to people’s care packages”. When the Re-Gen contacted, Councillor Matt Kerr, the council’s Executive Member for Social Care, he said: “We have been working closely with the Accord carers for several months to find a solution which is acceptable to everyone.“Alternative day care support has already been identified for a significant number of service users who have the highest and most complex support needs. The move to this centre will begin on Monday next week. “The remaining services users have all been offered places in another centre and we are extremely confident there will be a positive conclusion for those who continue to attend at the Accord Centre.“It’s disappointing the First Minister didn’t feel able to accept our invitation to meet today when he was already in Glasgow to discuss the Accord Centre, but the offer remains open. “It is also regrettable the SNP government seems intent on treating this issue as political football when they appear to have no real understanding of what needs to be done. ”We at the Re-Gen are not in the least concerned about anyone scoring political points but what we are concerned about is that a vulnerable group of people who deserve much better are being passed from

What is called for here is for the two opposing parties to iron out a solution (such as using somewhere like the old Cllr David McDonald, New MSP John Mason and First Fernan Street premises which would be capable Minister Alex Salmond pictured at the Accord Centre. of housing the group either short term or even bothered as to where the Accord service long term). users are housed as long as they can say, What we don’t want is for a group who “We did our bit for the Party” We are are dependent on stability to be messed watching the outcome with interest so about.

The awards are designed to bring tired old buildings back to

life and especially if they are of historical interest. Parkhead Cross falls right into this category and it has been described as “one of the most impressive pieces of turn of the century urban streetscape” and all the major buildings which form the cross were built between 1902 and 1914 and designed by such key architectural firms as Honeyman, Keepie and MacIntosh and

Burnet. Major refurbishment work to the historic shop fronts and buildings are planned plus opportunities for local people to learn skills in traditional conservation and property maintenance. It’s high time the old place was done up as at the moment it is an eyesore, let’s hope the funding will totally transform the area into a place to be proud of.

I also offer specialist surgeries throughout the year for young people, schools and others as requested. Please contact me for more details.

By Anne Smith Aries (21 March - 20 April)

You are in a mind-set of giving advice and not of one to listen, I would suggest that you take heed of the advice you would give to others as this is the answers to your own problems, those around you may say things that fill in the missing blanks of what is going on around you at this time.

Taurus (21 April - 21 May)

The harvest moon on the 17th May is a great time for you as an earth sign, you will be drawn into nature, if you follow your instinct and take that walk you will let go of all the negatives of the past and embrace a fresh start as this is indeed time for your new year to begin and a new way of thinking.

Gemini (22 May - 21 June)

The sun enters your sign on the 22nd of May and we are just going into a new moon phase and a new you, you seem to have released some of the demons from your past and a lighter much happier Gemini is surfacing. Time to blow away the cobwebs and start again.

Cancer (22 June - 23 July)

Being so perfect is so exhausting trying to do everything yourself and not allowing others to help is futile. You cannot continue in this manner, you are not perfect admit it; Time now to change your way of thinking, time out is needed!

A time of new- adventures, new interest’s which may seem daunting at first, but it is putting you in the centre stage and before you know it you are playing the starring role and loving every minute of it. Change is good.

Virgo (24 Aug - 23 Sept)

The new moon on the 17th May gives you a chance to re-evaluate your life; you are deciding what and who should stay and who should go. This is a good thing as you are decluttering for the rest of the years; some of you may hear from an old flame, resist the power of temptation by exploitation??

Libra (24 Sept - 23 Oct)

Mercury has been direct from the 23rd of April which helps you clarify communications around you, however, you seem to have taken on an air of authority on how you deal with people, a word of caution…. Pride comes before a fall, oh wee gentle Libra where art thou!

Scorpio (24 Oct - 22 Nov)

As with all projects it takes time for them to come to fruition, just ask a farmer, your money situation will improve but it takes time and nurturing, i would also suggest you make a budget for the rest of the year and stick to it.

Sagittarius (23 Nov - 21 Dec)

You have at last come to a place of peace and life is ticking along smoothly. You are a very friendly and chatty sign and because you are feeling so relaxed you may let slip one or two things that you should keep to yourself, be careful of who you tell your secrets to!

Capricorn (22 Dec - 20 Jan)

There seems to be a storm brewing as you feel a surge of emotions ready to surge forward and erupt like a volcano…. No, no, she has suppressed it again, you know it would be good for you to blow of all that steam as suppressing your feeling will make you ill, try to let go, scream if only a little.

Aquarius (21 Jan - 19 Feb)

After a few difficult weeks so seem to have turned a corner and you can see the sun shine once more. This is a great time for organising as Saturn the plant of structure puts order into both love and life. Make the most of this period and spend time in activities you enjoy.

Pisces (20 Feb - 20 Mar) Time to become a hamster and store some wealth away for leaner times. Your finances are good at the moment but communications and travel are not. Check the details on travel arrangement once then twice to ensure you have the correct information, Try to avoid making big plans around the 17th May, as this moon affects you concentration.

Hi everyone. Thank goodness all that election fever is over. Easter is over, the wedding is over and the schools are back to normal. Nothing to look forward to but the nights getting longer and the days getting warmer. It has it’s pitfalls though. Your garden needs mowing, weeded and generally overhauled. Despite the hard graft it is so much nicer looking out onto a spruce garden than an overgrown weed filled meadow. As it has been unusually warm these last few weeks it has been hard trying to fathom what to make for dinner. You take stuff out the freezer in the morning and by the time it comes to cook it you have gone right off the idea. So this week I have come up with a few dishes that are lovely in all weathers.. A gorgeous stir fry that takes minutes, even less if you buy prepared vegetables. I have also come up with a filling warm chicken salad. You can roast your own chicken or buy a cooked hot one from the supermarket. I prefer to roast my own as you get to use all the fantastic roasting juices into the dressing. I have also come up with a lovely old blast from the past dessert. One which the weans will absolutely love.

Sweet Chilli Stir-fry 3 skinned chicken breasts sliced into 1 inch pieces OR 2-3 quick fry steaks cut into 1 inch strips 1 tsp grated ginger 1 tsp crushed garlic ½ a savoy cabbage shredded finely 4 spring onions cut into ½ inch pieces 2 carrots cut into ribbons with a peeler 2 courgettes cut into ribbons with a peeler Small pack of sugar snap peas or mange tout Large handful of beans sprouts Small can of horse chestnuts drained Handful of roasted peanuts ½ bottle of sweet chilli sauce Large splash of soy sauce 1 pack of egg noodles or rice noodles 2 tbsp oil

Heat oil in a very large non stick frying pan or wok. Have the heat on high . Add the chicken or beef and fry off very quickly. Add the ginger and garlic. Add the vegetables and fry quickly moving them all the time to prevent sticking. Add the nuts and chestnuts. Add the noodles soy sauce and chilli sauce. Continue cooking for another minute to heat the noodles stirring continuously.

We understand that discussions are taking place to negotiate a lease for the property between the City Council and Strathclyde Police and we will keep our readers informed as to the outcome. Meanwhile there is a proposed Community HUB being discussed whereby the area adjacent to the Housing Office in the Main Street could be transformed into a onestop-shop. This project would bring together facilities such as, childcare, employment and training services under one roof as well as providing an IT learning centre and community space. The existing Library could also be located within this area. These proposals are certainly not set in stone and suggestions are welcomed by us here at the Re-Gen so drop us a line or Email us on what you think should be incorporated within such a Hub. The information we gleaned from our sources is at present being studied as we don’t want to put forward things that could eventually never see the light of day. This is just a taster of what we hope is positive developments in Baillieston, let us hope they are for the betterment of the whole area.

COLL PLACE FLATS ARE RAZED

Latest demolition part of plans to regenerate communities A multi-storey block in the North of Glasgow was demolished early last Sunday morning by a controlled explosion. It took 55 kg of explosives and just five seconds to reduce the 17-storey GHA high-rise to 12,000 tonnes of rubble. The early morning timing of the demolition at 15 Coll Place, Germiston, ensured disruption to residents was kept to a minimum. It also reduced the time the nearby railway line was closed. The demolition was carried out under strictly controlled conditions which included evacuating 250 local residents who lived within the exclusion zone. GHA’s Executive Director of Development and Regeneration Alex McGuire said: “The demolition of the last of the multi storeys at Coll Place is part of our wider plans, with our partners, to regenerate communities across the city. “We’d like to thank nearby residents for their patience and understanding while the demolition was carried out.” Demolition contractors Safedem offered residents the choice of being put up in a hotel or to stay with family and friends. The GHA flats were part of the Glasgow skyline since 1967. They were part of three tower blocks

housing strategy. Safedem Managing Director William Sinclair said: “We’ve built up a successful relationship with

in Germiston. One block at 9 Coll Place was demolished in 1992 and the other block at 15 Forge Place came down in 2008. A decision was taken in September 2008 following extensive consultation with the local

community and a fall in demand for the high-rise block at 15 Coll Place. The last of the residents moved out in November 2010 with the vast majority of tenants being rehoused locally within Germiston,

Scottish Parliament Election Results LAST Friday morning around 5-00am, standing in the SECC surrounded by Candidates, Supporters and Well-Wishers of every political party taking part in the Scottish Parliamentary Elections, was almost surreal. The evening had started off in a jovial fashion with banter being given and taken by those eagerly anticipating the results but the mood soon changed as one by one the results filtered through from other constituencies as the Glasgow results were being counted. The first major indication that things on the political map were changing came with the announcement that Labour heavyweight Andy Kerr had lost his seat to SNP’s Linda Fabiani by almost 2,000 votes. You could basically feel the tension from the Labour officials as they checked and rechecked the way their piles of votes were mounting up in comparison to the threat from SNP. The SNP officials on the

other hand were celebrating as if it was New Year/ Christmas and Birthday party time all rolled into one. Rumours started to abound with “Iain Gray has lost his seat” the favourite and “Jackie Baillie ousted by SNP” the other, but following a few enquiries these had proved unfounded and both had held their seats and continue to be MSP’s. Meanwhile East End lass, Christina McKelvie took the Hamilton/Larkhall/ Stonehouse seat for SNP by beating another Labour biggun Tom McCabe by 2213 votes. Yes shocks were certainly beginning to occur on election night 2011. The first announcement from Glasgow Returning Office, George Black saw yet another east end resident, Nicola Sturgeon, SNP’s Deputy Leader, defeat Labour hope, Stephen Curran and that then set the trend for the rest of the evening, (albeit a couple of Labour seats were held). Next was the Kelvin seat, which saw Sandra White defeat Pauline McNeil, ( both

The contest for Maryhill and Springburn, between Patricia Ferguson and Bob Doris saw Patricia triumph but thanks to the “List Seats”, Bob also makes it back to Parliament. John Mason (SNP), took the Shettleston seat from Frank McAveety ( Labour ), and the only scrap of comfort that Labour could take from the overall night was that Paul Martin was returned as MSP for Glasgow Provan. With the final tally of 69 seats the SNP have been given a clear mandate to govern the country for the next five years and let’s hope they get it right for the whole nation.

LOCAL SHOPS SUFFERING THROUGH ROADWORKS SHOPS in the Parkhead area are losing trade due to the amount of roadworks taking place in the area. Work which is taking place in conjunction with the preparations for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games seems to be causing mayhem with the foot-fall at the Forge and other businesses in the East End. The problem is that the Dalmarnock Road area has been closed off for months now and this means that

the good people of Bridgeton and Dalmarnock among other areas are having to take major detours to reach the East End’s major shopping mall. Not only that, Springfield Road has had temporary traffic lights in operation for ages and motorists are now reluctant to venture along that stretch whilst outside Celtic Park the cones are laid out from the car park to Fielden Street. Gallowgate has also had its fair share of upheaval since

the announcement of the Games but the biggest upheaval has been the loss of custom from the major stores in Parkhead Forge with some showing footfall having been reduced by around 7,000 people on average. Time to start talks between the stores and those carrying out the necessary works to try and alleviate the problem. After all the Games are supposed to be bringing extra revenue into the East End not drive it down.

Volunteer’s Week – Making a Difference

TAKE a look around you and you’ll notice that most successful community organisations each have a bank of volunteers to call on. The Citizen’s Advice Bureau, Credit Unions, Youth Clubs, etc...... all these organisations constantly call on the expertise of those who

have the experience to deal with the public yet seek no remuneration. In this day and age when it seems everyone is out for themselves the role of the Volunteer really comes to the fore. Volunteering is everywhere, in every part of the country, among people of all ages and from all backgrounds,

volunteering transforms lives. Whether the amount of time is small or large, one-off or ongoing, the same spirit unites what volunteers do: the desire to help other people and make a positive difference. There are approximately 20 million volunteers in Britain, doing everything from clearing canals to coaching football teams. Most volunteers say that they get a huge amount back from volunteering; the satisfaction of giving time constructively, sharing skills and experiences, the social buzz from a group working together, new skills learned and new experiences undertaken. In the current economic

climate we’ve seen a huge surge of people looking to volunteering to develop their CVs and enhance their employment prospects. The impact of volunteers bring a wide range of benefits to an organisation. The fact that they have chosen to be there for no monetary reward means that their work can have a huge impact on those who benefit from it. They can bring diversity and new or differing perspectives to the organisation. When they are well integrated into an organisation this can make a significant contribution to day-today work and longer term planning. Volunteers can be an organisation’s strongest advocates and its most honest critics. They are there because they care and harnessing this passion will bring tremendous benefits all round. Why not think about becoming

a volunteer and contact some of the companies that are featured on this page, they will be delighted to hear from you and it could mean that

your life experiences could really benefit a host of others who are crying out for someone just like you.

A Big Thank You From Tollcross. ON Friday 13th May the result of the Second Stage Transfer Ballot held in Carmyle, Tollcross, Lilybank and Newbank was announced.

that the transfer on the 27th June all goes smoothly”. We must thank everyone that voted, particularly those that voted ‘Yes’ for Tollcross.

A massive 72% of tenants voted in favour of transfer from GHA to Tollcross Housing Association.

A massive 51% of GHA Tenants voted in the Ballot, that’s 10% more than the turnout for the Scottish Election in the same area! The turnout show just exactly how important good housing is to the people in the East End.

Although the Ballot has now been completed the proposed date of transfer from GHA to Tollcross Housing Association is 27th June 2011. Clive Douglas, Director at Tollcross, said “We are delighted that so many tenants made the effort to cast their vote for transfer to Tollcross Housing Association. The Committee and Staff worked so hard in the run up to the Ballot to encourage tenants to vote ‘Yes’ These are really exciting times for the Association. We’ve just completed our first new build development in over 10 years at Corbett Street in Tollcross and the ballot announcement means that the Association will now treble in size, going from 700 units to over 2300. There’s an enormous amount of work to be done now to ensure

The Association’s chairperson, Bill Dougan, sees this as a great opportunity for the East End of the city.

“This is fantastic news for the East End! It’s taken a long time to get this far but we are delighted that so many tenants have shown that they trust Tollcross Housing Association. There’s a lot of hard work ahead, but were looking forward to getting our sleeves rolled up and getting stuck in to deliver on the promises we made to Tenants. We hope that very quickly tenants will see the real benefits of local people in control of what happens to housing in their community”.

St Francis’s were not to be outdone though and equalised with a bizarre goal which came about following a clearance by the excellent St Paul’s keeper. The ball was met around 30 yds out

and lobbed back (David Beckham style) over the despairing goalie’s head by Ross Ingles. The game then went into extra time but the teams still could not be separated and thankfully it didn’t go to penalties but common sense prevailed and both St Francis’s and St Paul’s were able to share the cup without the heartache of a penalty miss.

Building a Sustainable Future CITY Building is one of Scotland’s largest construction companies. The company has an award-winning, holistic approach to environmental issues and takes a lead role in delivering sustainable solutions in construction, manufacturing, maintenance and training. In 2007, we established a dedicated environmental unit to identify green issues and to deliver tangible results. Since then, City Building has reduced its carbon footprint (for gas and electric consumption) by 25% and further reductions are targeted. This has resulted in us winning a number of national “green” awards. We have also successfully achieved the ISO 14001 environmental standard and the FISP accreditation (Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme), in recognition of our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and maximising sustainability across the business. City Building operates one of Europe’s largest supported employment facilities at Royal Strathclyde Blindcraft Industries (RSBi), where over 50% of staff have a disability. Here, a range of green solutions have been implemented, such as introducing a wood fired boiler system, which is fuelled by offcuts from the wood-related production processes. We have constructed a micro renewables centre at our Construction Skills Academy in Glasgow. This is a shop window for innovative

Here’s a list of simple things you can do immediately

City Building’s waste management champion, Billy Wilson, with Scotland’s first roll packer machine to compact waste and reduce landfill products using solar and wind power, ground and air source heat pump technologies, energy saving cladding systems, energy efficient boilers, water saving technologies and rain water harvesting systems. This Centre is the first of its kind in Central Scotland and will enable all organisations involved in construction to understand the need to proactively address green issues and, importantly, how to address and satisfy those needs. At City Building, sustainability is an integral part of our business activities, from office and transport functions to manufacturing, construction, project and maintenance work and training. However, the term “sustainability” not only relates to the products we manufacture and procure, but also to our staff development and our impact on society. For example, our Queenslie Training Centre offers a wide range of apprenticeship courses to upskill and

offer life employment opportunities to young people from across Glasgow. We also provide a range of training and life skills opportunities at City Building’s Construction Skills Academy, which offers nationallyrecognised training programmes to assist people into employment, the majority of whom are far removed from the labour market. Through our training initiatives and apprenticeship schemes, we are providing skills to the workforce of tomorrow and generating true economic and sustainable benefits in our local communities and beyond. We are helping women to access the construction industry, as well as lone parents, ethnic minorities and young apprentices to develop their core and life skills and to make a positive contribution to the local and national economy.

Recycling Tips 1: Start small To make a difference, you don’t have to start big. Remember, every effort counts, small or large. A small start is better than not at all, and it can help give you greater confidence to take bigger steps down the road. What it means to start small is to start with yourself. Look at the things that you own and use. Things around you that you have control over. These things could be in your home, in your workplace, at your hotel room during your holidays, in your car, etc. and as you become comfortable recycling your own things, you can expand your circle of influence to those around you, such as your immediate family, and then your relatives and friends. Recycling tips 2: Reduce and Reuse first To make a difference to the environment, you should first look towards reducing consumption, as it is actually the first and most effective step toward producing less waste (consuming less automatically produces less waste). However, there are times when consumption is necessary. In these cases, re-use as much as possible before recycling any remaining materials. Reusing products, where possible, is even better than recycling because the item does not need to be reprocessed before it can be used again. Finally, if you have to make the purchases, buy products that are made of recycled materials . And make sure you recycle the items when you don’t need them anymore. Look out for the recycling symbols on your products that tell you that they are made of recycled materials, or are designed for recycling. These things count! Recycling tips 3: Know what to recycle Before you start on your recycling journey, the basic knowledge you need is to know what to recycle. There are many items in the house, office, school etc that can be recycled. The items range from paper, glass, metals like aluminium, plastic, electronic items and more! For

example, aluminium (used to make our coke cans) can be recycled over and over again, while not all types of plastics can be recycled. You need to look for the recycling symbols embedded at the bottom of most plastic bottles to be able to differentiate the type of plastic you have. In other words, before you start, you will need to know what to recycle and where to send them for recycling. Read more! Recycling tips 4: Green tips for the home The home is where you can find lots of things for recycling. Things are being purchased on a regular basis (eg. groceries and household consumables). Often these products comes with lots of packaging that end up immediately as waste, if no attempts are made to reduce, reuse and recycle them. As you become more and more familiar with the habit of recycling, innovate and find your own creative ways of reducing, reusing and recycling! Also make it an effort to share your tips with your family, remember, all efforts count. The more individuals that make it their individual responsibility to recycle and protect the earth, the better! Recycling tips 5: Green tips for the office The office is another place where you can expand your recycling efforts to. At the office, some materials such as paper can be used at alarming rates. At other offices, styrofoam cups are used on a daily basis for coffee and tea breaks, and at meetings. Imagine the amount of non-biodegradable waste these offices contribute to the incinerator and landfills on a daily basis! Scary!

• Turn it off when not in use (lights, television, DVD player, Hi Fi, computer etc. etc. ...) • Turn down the central heating slightly (try just 1 to 2 degrees C). Just 1 degree will help reduce your heating bill by about 8%. • Turn down the water heating setting (just 2 degrees will make a significant saving) • Check the central heating timer setting - remember there is no point heating the house after you have left for work • Fill your dish washer and washing machine with a full load - this will save you water, electricity, and washing powder • Fill the kettle with only as much water as you need • Do your weekly shopping in a single trip • Hang out the washing to dry rather than tumble drying it

The following is a list of items that may take an initial investment, but should pay for themselves over the course of 1-4 years through savings on your energy bills. • Fit energy saving light bulbs • Install thermostatic valves on your radiators • Insulate your hot water tank, your loft and your walls • Installing cavity wall installation • By installing 180mm thick loft insulation • Replace your old fridge / freezer (if it is over 15 years old), with a new one with energy efficiency rating of “A” • Replace your old boiler with a new energy efficient condensing boiler

Travel less and travel more carbon footprint friendly. • Car share to work, or for the kids school run • Use the bus or a train rather than your car • For short journeys either walk or cycle • Try to reduce the number of flights you take • See if your employer will allow you to work from home one day a week • Next time you replace your car check out diesel engines.

As well as your primary carbon footprint, there is also a secondary footprint that you cause through your buying habits. • Don’t buy bottled water if your tap water is safe to drink • Buy local fruit and vegetables, or even try growing your own • Buy foods that are in season locally • Don’t buy fresh fruit and vegetables which are out of season, they may have been flown in • Reduce your consumption of meat • Buy Organic Foods • Don’t buy over packaged products • Recycle as much as possible

Competition opens for Scottish school pupils to design the official Commonwealth Games tartan PRIMARY and secondary school pupils across Scotland are being offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to design the official tartan for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. The competition which opens today is being run in conjunction with Learning and Teaching Scotland. Schools will be encouraged to run their own competitions, before submitting a final entry before 17th June. Schools will digitally upload their winning tartan online onto a special piece of software called the “tartan generator” to be considered with other schools’ entries from across Scotland. The winning tartan is likely to enjoy a high profile during Glasgow 2014 and is likely to be featured in specific branding, merchandise and ceremonies. Learning and Teaching Scotland will distribute the details of the competition to all schools across Scotland and encourage pupils of all ages to get involved.

Parliamentary Patter Margaret Curran MP THE Welfare Reform Bill committee is well and truly under way in Parliament and I have been heavily involved in the discussions due to my role as shadow minister for Disabled People. The changes to the benefits system that we have been scrutinising will have a huge impact across the country as well as for families and individuals in Glasgow East. A hot topic of debate has been the introduction of the Universal Credit - a new benefit that will combine some of the current meanstested benefits and tax

credits in to one single payment. Although the aim of this Government is to simplify the system – an objective which I agree is important – as always, the devil is in the detail, and I am clear that we must make sure that the proposals of Tory-led Government are subject to great scrutiny before they given the opportunity to be passed by Parliament. Last week the debate concentrated on the reform of Disability Living Allowance. The Government plan to replace DLA with a new Personal Independence

Payment in 2013/14. The Labour Party agree with the central principles around the reform of DLA, a benefit that has remained largely untouched since it was first introduced in 1992. Furthermore, public perceptions of disability have changed over time as has the legislation that impacts on disabled people, and so it is right that the benefit is reformed to reflect these changes. We need to look at what people can do not just what they cannot do. However, lots of concerns remain about the way the Tory-led Government are

going about this reform. For example, the public consultation was closed before the initial publication of the bill, while Labour do not support increasing the waiting time one can apply to PIP from 3-6 months, or ending automatic entitlement for the severely disabled. Last week I also attended the Hardest Hit rally in Westminster. The rally saw thousands of disabled people take to the streets to protest against the cumulative impact of Tory cuts on public and local authority services that disabled people rely

on to be able to live an independent life at the heart of society. It was a great event and there were many passionate speeches made. However the Tory Minister for Disabled People was noted by her absence, and the rally passed a unanimous vote of no confidence in her ability to reflect their views in Government. She now has much work to do to regain the confidence of Disabled People – particularly at a time Margaret Curran MP of such 0141 771 4844 sweeping changes. margaret.curran.msp@scottish.parliament.uk

unemployment does not continue to rise and I will be raising this issue, particularly with regard to the Commonwealth Games coming to the East End of Glasgow. We have to ensure that the local people have the same opportunities as everyone else when applying for jobs. It would be ironic if the Commonwealth Games came to the East End and the local people did not directly benefit, particularly in relation to employment opportunities. An area that has been providing job opportunities for the East End is the Fort Shopping Centre and I will be working closely with the owners of this development to ensure that they are encouraged to continue

development their business. Housing will be at the forefront of my Action Plan. I want to see the continuation of the good work carried out by many of the local community housing associations within my constituency. There are many challenges facing housing organisations, particularly with regard to derelict land in the Easterhouse area, and I will be working closely with housing representatives to improve conditions for local residents. Finally, it is important that constituents in my new area of Provan are able to have access to me. I am currently in the process of arranging my local surgeries, details of which will be available shortly. Over the next five

year I also intend holding regular street surgeries and coffee mornings throughout the constituency. A street surgery gives constituents the opportunity to meet with me in their own homes to discuss their concerns and constituents will be notified by letter when I intend to be in their area. In the meantime, if you have an enquiry please telephone my constituency office where a member of my staff will be Paul Martin MSP happy to take your Paul Martin MSP details - 0141 564 1364.

had won. Clearly it was a shock to Frank McAveety and Labour. As I did that Friday, I want to thank Frank for all his work over the last 12 years as an MSP, and I would also thank Margaret Curran for her work in the part of the constituency that was Baillieston. Over the last few years we have seen significant investment in our area.

The M74 completion is due very soon and we have the Commonwealth Games also bringing money and jobs. But we have to fight our corner and not see all the benefits slipping off to other areas. 5 out of 8 Glasgow MSPs are now SNP and we will work together for the very best for this City. Finally it was a great privilege to make the

affirmation at Holyrood on Wednesday 11th. I was immediately struck by how much more friendly and more efficient Holyrood is than Westminster. Staff call us by our first names and I had a desk and computer within hours of arriving. However, I will be grateful for your patience if it takes a few months to get a local office and staff in place!

Paul Martin MSP I would like to take this opportunity thank Re-GEN readers for their support at the Scottish Parliamentary Election on 5th May when I was successfully returned as the Labour Member for the Glasgow Provan constituency. I appreciate that this is a difficult time for my Labour colleagues who were not returned in Glasgow. Frank McAveety, who is known to Parliamentary Patter readers, has made a significant contribution to the east end of Glasgow and the legacyof his work will continue to benefit local residents for many years to come. This is a period of humility and reflection for the Labour Party, however it also important that

during this time of reflection we also listen carefully to the electorate Whilst Alex Salmond goes through the process of appointing his new Cabinet Ministers he will be aware that I, and others, will continue to hold him to account and my Local Action Plan will include the issue of Lightburn Hospital. This hospital has provided a valuable service to the East End of Glasgow for many years and during the election campaign many residents raised fears about the proposal to close the hospital. I intend to do everything within my powers to ensure that this hospital remains open. We must ensure that

I am extremely grateful for your vote of confidence in me and the SNP on Thursday 5th May. And even if you yourself did not vote for me, I am still here to serve you for the next five years. In my acceptance speech at the SECC in the early

hours of Friday 6th, I said how many people had told me we had no chance of winning in this constituency. They thought it would be a miracle if I did win. Well, I believe in miracles!

Robbery - Blairlogie Street, Glasgow

Strathclyde Police is appealing for information and witnesses after a Glasgow City Council worker was robbed on Blairlogie Street, Glasgow on Monday 16 May 2011. Around 1430 hours on Monday, the 44-year-old council worker was cutting the grass verge with an industrial strimmer, on Blairlogie Street near to the corner of Gartloch Road, when he was approached by two men who attempted to engage the man in conversation. A few moments later, the first suspect tried to take the strimmer from the council worker but it was attached to his body. The first suspect reached into his jacket, and thinking the suspect had a weapon, the worker unclipped the strimmer. The suspect then grabbed the strimmer and both suspects made off towards the community centre on Gartloch Road. The man was uninjured but has been left shaken by the incident. Description of suspects 1. The first suspect is described as white, with a local Scottish accent. He is aged around 24 years, approximately 5ft 8inches tall and has short, brown hair. At the time, he was wearing a light blue tracksuit, a cream bomber-style jacket and white trainers. 2. The second suspect is also described as white, with a local Scottish accent. He is aged around 18 years, approximately 5ft 5inches tall and has short, light brown hair. He was wearing a ¾ length dark jacket. Detective Constable Bernadette Gallagher from Shettleston Police Office said today: “I am sure that someone would have noticed two men on Gartloch Road carrying an orange and white industrial strimmer, and I would ask anyone with information or who saw these two men to contact Shettleston Police Office. “I would also ask that anyone who has been approached to buy an industrial strimmer to contact us, as this strimmer would be of little use to anyone with a domestic garden.
