major crackdown on crime, disorder, anti-social behaviour and Serious and Organised Crime Groups began in B’ Division this week and will last for the whole of April. Building on the success of last year’s inaugural Operation Neptune, B’ Division will embark on a month long campaign of action that will be bigger, bolder and more robust than ever before to keep peoplesafe. Nevertheless crime and disorder don’t stand still and neither do Strathclyde Police. It would have been easy for B’ Division to bask in the success of last year’s Operation Neptune, where astounding results were achieved including an increase in the number of people who had committed a crime of violence being caught, increased drug seizures, more offensive

weapon and knife carriers jailed and gang fighting decimated. The result of last year’s Neptune was a springboard for a year where people in Glasgow’s North and East of the City and together with those living in East Dunbartonshire have never been safer. Murders have been reduced, serious assaults have been reduced, robberies have been reduced and anti-social behaviour was significantly down having been tackled like never before. So what will Operation NEPTUNE II do, B’ Division have secured levels of resources which will see more Police officers on the street than ever, with a commitment and focus to keep people safe never before seen in Glasgow North East and East Dunbartonshire.

TOLLCROSS Advice Centre officially opened its Work Club last week in their premises at 1061-1063 Tollcross Road. The new club has come about thanks to funding from the Job Centre and is part of the Tollcross Community Trust. The T-CUP ((Tollcross Community Unemployment Project) is there to help unemployed people in the area with such things as job-searching, CV writing and Emailing, and it has proved

very successful already in its short existence. One member received word that he was being considered for 4 jobs in the one day (he eventually decided to take one in Morrisons new store at Calton), and others have also been getting great feedback on the jobs front. The group meets every Thursday at 1.30 to discuss issues that affect people on low incomes such as Fuel Poverty, then as a group they access the computers within

the Advice Centre to search for employment, training or volunteering opportunities. The group also have access to benefits and debt advice given by Tollcross Housing Association staff and they also can join the BCD Credit Union who have an outreach station at Tollcross enabling them to apply for low-cost loans. To find out more about this great project call Veronica, Laura or Belle on 764-1234 or call in and see them at Tollcross Road.

Haghill Wedding Day 3New Dalmarnock taking Shape

Around 70 local residents and business owners went along to the Clyde Gateway offices and the Dalmarnock Centre on 29 and 30 March to look at plans for a new Friday 28th January 2011 10,000 sq m high-quality office in Dalmarnock, adjacent to the site of the improved railway station. Alison Brown, Project Manager at Clyde Gateway said “The imminent opening of the East End Regeneration Friday 28th January 2011 Route and the completion of the Friday 28th January 2011 £9m overhaul of Dalmarnock Station in late 2013 will transform how the area will look and it is our view it will provide the commercial market with an exciting new business location. “We have worked up a proposal for a four-storey building that is almost 10,000 sq metres in size and would cost around £16m to build. It could work either as a stand-alone HQ office or be a location for a number of smaller and medium-sized operations with up to 600 staff in total.

Sagittarius (23 Nov - 21 Dec)

The xx wall you have been hitting on the home and personal front is about to come tumbling down and you can begin to progress forward, ideas on how to improve your work situation should be followed and it is a good idea to get professional advice on these matters. Affairs of the heart are on hold as you seem to have other things on the agenda, but this is only a temporary phase.

Capricorn (22 Dec - 20 Jan)

There xxxxxis no excuse to keep communications from flowing now as mercury planet of communications goes direct on Wednesday, it is time to clear up all misunderstandings around family and home and open up to the possibilities that you might have jumped the gun.

Lemon Chicken Soup Leftover cooked chicken carcass that has meat on it or Good chicken stock and a chopped cooked chicken breast. 1 cup of long grain rice 1 carrot peeled and chopped finely 2 spring onions sliced finely 1tbsp of lemon juice Boil the chicken carcass in a pint and a half of water for 1 hour and remove from the pan to cool. Once cooled tear the meat from the bones and return to the pan with the rice and carrot. Bring to the boil and simmer with a lid on for 25 min and rice is cooked. Add the spring onion and season well. Add a squeeze of lemon and serve.

Stuffed Lamb Shoulder 1 boned shoulder of lamb or leg if you prefer Half can of prunes drained well and chopped finely 4 dried apricots chopped finely Large handful of fresh mint chopped finely Large handful of fresh parsley chopped finely Juice of half a lemon 1 cup of fresh breadcrumbs or prepared couscous if you prefer 2 cloves of crushed garlic. 2-3 tbsp of olive oil Open up your lamb and season with plenty of salt and pepper. Combine all the other ingredients and spread thickly into the centre of the meat. Roll up and secure either with butcher type string or skewers. Rub all over with good oil and season. Roast in a moderate oven 180c for 20 min per pound and an extra 20 min. Allow at least 15 minutes standing time for the meat to rest on a covered plate before carving. Pour a cup of water into the roasting pan and scrape up all the juices and sticky bits. Add a knob of butter and boil down for 10 min until it reduces and thickens slightly. This is your gravy. I love this with boiled new potatoes and green beans but by all means serve it with roasties if you prefer.

Add the peanut butter and marshmallows. Stir in the Swiss roll pieces. Stir in the oil and transfer to a shallow dish give a little shake to make it even. Crumble the bacon into tiny morsels and scatter on the top of the cake. Refrigerate foe at least 20 minutes and remove from dish. Cut into small fudge sized squares. Have a lovely Easter and try not to scoff too many eggs. Love Susie x

Easter’s here!! The clocks have gone forward and the nights are getting longer. Winter is officially over. Thank goodness, but there was much confusion last week as we experienced the hottest March on record. I for one don’t really pay much heed to that though as records have only been kept for a relatively short time. I did feel it all the same and spent a lovely few days basking in the fine weather. Apparently Glasgow was hotter than Spain. I was tempted to get the Barbie out but settled with just giving it a good old clean in the hope that April will be just as fine. I love Easter. I will be boiling eggs and decorating them with the wean before heading over to the hill in Garrowhill Park and having an egg rolling race. I have come up with a few interesting ideas for a lovely Easter lunch.. Do try the dessert as I guarantee everyone will love it and you will be asked for it time and time again.

Every year the school raises funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust (in memory of former pupil Elaine Davidson) and with this year commemorating the Queen’s Jubilee the school combined the two and had a tree planting ceremony whilst raising funds. Every child at Caledonia Primary was invited to plant a tree at the

side of the school and tag it with a message and in a special ceremony Elaine’s mother Maureen was invited to plant an Oak Tree in the school’s play area in remembrance of a lovely lass who worked tirelessly to raise cash for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Following the tree planting there were loads of events running with the “Whackyday” theme

moved at the sights being shown on BBC especially from Sierra Leone and to see the kids of Garrowhill joining in to raise cash was excellent. Well done everyone at the school who gave their time to organise this event and who took part on the day.

Clyde Gateway forge ahead

Chosen By You - Given By Us

Local celebrity George Parsonage MBE of the Glasgow Humane Society, joined local councillor George Redmond at Asda Superstore in Parkhead recently to launch the new ASDA Community Life initiative. George Parsonage has rescued over 1500 people during his time patrolling the River Clyde and is truly an amazing man. ASDA arranged for him to meet up with kids from Wellshot Primary School who also have a connection with the River Clyde only they are putting things back into the river as opposed to taking out, as they are part of a regeneration project which puts trout back into the water. Cllr. Redmond and Robbie McDonald (ASDA General Manager) joined with the others to officially cut the ribbon and declare the Community Life initiative open. This is a tremendous project thought up by Asda to put something back into the

community as customers are given a token to place into one of three tubs selected by the store and the one with the most tokens at the end of the month is given £200 towards their organisation. Although this was the “Official” launch there has already been 3 previous winners as the Parkhead store has been piloting the initiative since December. These are Wellshot Primary School, Urban Fox and East End Enterprise Group who each received their reward from the Asda colleagues. As this is a great initiative we would

Many of you will have noticed that over the past eight months there has been a lot of digging and shoveling on a large site that is bounded by Rigby Street, Shettleston Road and the railway line that serves the Carntyne. Shettleston, Garrowhill and Easterhouse stations. The work is part of the activities being undertaken by Clyde Gateway and when completed will see a new yard for showpeople family as well as business units on the frontage at Shettleston Road. The site is part of the former Beardmore Forge and an old chemical works, and the

construction work has shown just how difficult and awkward it can be to bring these old industrials sites back into use. Bill Devlin is an engineer who has worked on many large-scale and well-known projects including improvements to the historical and famous Forth Rail Bridge. He joined Clyde Gateway back in 2009 to bring his expertise to the sort of work going on at Rigby Street which he feels is as tough and difficult a challenge as he’s ever faced in his 37-year career. He told the Re-Gen. “I knew there would be a lot of buried material

that was part of the old steelworks that would have to be removed before we could start work on the new yards and units. I knew there was also the challenge of dealing with the Camlachie Burn which flows through the site for the most part hidden below the surface. What I didn’t know, and couldn’t possibly know until we got onto the site was that the material was buried as deep as 15 feet down and included solis contaminated with decades-old chemicals. The extent of this pollution and contamination was way worse than anyone had ever imagined and all of this meant that the engineering team had to come up with a range of innovative ideas

and solutions to enable us to develop the site. The alternative would have been to abandon the work and leave this huge site of ever being capable of being used again for anything. “The work at Rigby Street has been unlike anything else I’ve experienced in all my years. We’ve had to dig down well below the surface and pour hundreds of tons of concrete into the holes to ensure the site was fully stable and could be developed in the way we hoped. The good news is that we are on track for having the work completed by June and for the show people to begin to live on Rigby Street shortly afterwards.”

Introducing Superintendant Steven Reed


Letters to the Editor

(The views stated here are not necessarily the views of the Re-Gen Newspaper).

The Re-Gen had the pleasure of meeting Supt. Steven Reed last week at London Road Police office. Supt. Reed has been in place since January having been based in the West Midlands and his forthright approach to policing should certainly stand him in good stead here in the East End. Here we let him tell you a little about himself, read on...... “I am delighted to have the opportunity to serve the wonderful communities of Glasgow’s East End. I have recently transferred from West Midlands Police where I worked with the diverse communities of Birmingham and Coventry. I have spent the vast majority of my service in the CID which has included targeting regional Organised Crime Groups

and local Urban Street Gangs. In this role I was responsible for the two largest cash seizures in the Force’s history both being over £1 million. This money was taken from criminals and then used to help communities who were blighted by the activities that generated the cash in the first instance. For those criminals who are causing problems in your area – I want both you and them to know – I will be targeting them. In addition I have successfully led several high profile major crime & murder investigations. I was the senior CID officer during the disorders last summer and as a consequence I led the largest investigation in the West Midlands Police’s history to ensure that the offenders from the

disorders were brought to justice. I aim to bring the benefits from all my various experiences to keep the people of Glasgow’s East End safe. Having responsibility for crime and performance I have already started to build upon the good work already being done locally to target potential offenders and prevent crime from occurring. This has prevented people from becoming the victims of crime and ensured their safety. It is my intention to build upon the early successes and deliver greater protection for the people and communities of Glasgow’s East End.” The Re-Gen extends a warm East End welcome to Superintendant Reed and looks forward to working with him in his new position.

When local Councillor David Turner was a pupil at Bannerman high School in the 1980’s Baillieston only sports facility was the James Murray Centre. This remained the only local facility serving residents of Baillieston for many years while other parts of the city saw new purpose built centres springing up. The James Murray (which Labour closed down) later re-opened as the Caledonia Centre but closed for good towards the end of 2009 after serving the community for many years, leaving Baillieston as the largest neighbourhood in the city without sports or community facility. In recent years the area has attracted lots of new homes, but too often these proposals are nodded through the planning committee without due consent or thought about the needs of the existing community. Then last edition of the Re-Gen reported on the decision of the Councils Planning Application Committee

on the 6th of March, where after long discussions Councillors of all parties, apart from Labour voted to reject a proposed plan to build 550 luxury houses on the site of the former Glasgow Zoo and Ellismuir Farm. Councillor David McDonald, who is a member of the committee said, “The reasons these proposals where rejected have absolutely nothing to do with a political stitch up, indeed Labour have a majority on the Committee, but 7 of their members failed to turn up. Nor was the decision taken to deny Baillieston the facilities it deserves. The committee members voted against the proposals due to concerns about the loss of green space, the loss species including bats and badgers, which are protected by law. Concerns over the inability of local roads and schools to cope with an increased demand. The proposals also contravened various Council policies as laid out in the City Plan including regulation DEV 12, ENV 3,

ENV 7 and ENV 8 (building on the green belt)” Objection where also lodged by Scottish Power. 50 local residents who raised over 20 separate reason for objecting to the proposals. Councillor David Turner said,“It is the job of Local Councillors to represent constituents, not to represent multi million pound companies, Councillors rejected these proposals, because Baillieston deserves better. Baillieston shouldn’t have to rely on house builders to fund local services, that’s the job of the City Council, and its Labours failure to deliver time after time for Baillieston which should be front page news. Mays elections offer the people of Baillieston a chance to vote for progressive change that doesn’t ride roughshod over the environment or the feelings of the local community.” Bailie David McDonald (SNP) Baillieston (Ward 20)

I was astonished and very angry to read in our local community newspaper Re-GEN that is very supportive of the East End Communities that Baillieston’s Brighter Future has been destroyed by Baillieston’s own councillor David McDonald S.N.P. who spoke to the Planning Committee AGAINST the planning application ( that had already been passed by an ALL party agreement previously agreed by ALL parties originally. Three other SNP councillors supported him against this undemocratic decision. The brand new State of the Art Sport and Leisure Centre we had hoped for at James Lindsay

Memorial Park is now in jeopardy. This means that the SNP councillors who have gone against their own decision could end up costing us the taxpayers a vast amount of money and deprived the good people of Baillieston much needed investment . The people of Baillieston and the surrounding districts namely Swinton Broomhouse and Carmyle deserve much better we have been deprived of some decent investment for more years than I can remember. Now is the time to get our communities together, support each other and do something about it. The good people of Baillieston

will fight this tooth and nail, we have been badly let down by our very own Councillor David McDonald S.N.P. who was elected by the people of Baillieston and is defecting to Pollok to stand in the May election. Has anyone seen him in Baillieston lately NO he’ll probably be in Pollok canvassing. THE GOOD PEOPLE OF BAILLIESTON NOW KNOW WHO NOT TO VOTE FOR COME THE ELECTION THE BROKEN PROMISES ONCE AGAIN OF THE SCOTTISH NATIONAL PARTY Barrie Linning (Baillieston)

Anderson Maguire Funeral Directors Glasgow’s leading independent funeral directors Anderson Maguire have just opened another funeral home in the East End. Located at 658 Alexandra Parade, close to the Royal Infirmary. the new facility bridges the gap between the firm’s funeral homes in Springburn Way and Shettleston Road. “We have a large number of families in the Garngad, Townhead and Riddrie areas who use the company when they have a bereavement and this will be more convenient for them” said Angela Maguire, part of the management team at Anderson Maguire’s head office. ”More families than ever are now using our company. They recognise that we offer to very high level of personal service at a very moderate cost, something which is very important to families especially in the current economic climate” said Angela

The Alexandra Funeral Home is the fourth facility the company has opened in the last 3 years with others currently being planned. “As a family business we are focused on providing the best care and attention to families at a difficult time. We have invested continually in everything from staff training to our top of the range Jaguar hearses and limousines” said Angela, the next generation now involved in the running this family concern. ”We now have ten locations throughout the city all providing compassionate assistance to families on a local basis. We take care of absolutely everything from contacting the clergy or officiant, arranging the crematorium or cemetery, inserting paper notices right through to organising the catering and all at a moderate cost” To help enhance the level of personal attention on offer at their East End funeral homes Anderson Maguire has appointed Tollcross man Christopher Bradley as the funeral director dedicated to working across the three funeral homes. Christopher who has been based at the company’s head office for the past couple of years is a well known face in the East End. Reared on Tollcross Road he attended Wellshot Primary school before going on to Eastbank Academy. Says Christopher “I learned a lot about people and how to look after folk when I worked at one of the East End’s best known establishments Honest Johns on Braidfauld Street. Even in a very simple way I learned things there which have stood me in good stead during my life and which are invaluable now.”

OPERATION NEPTUNE Continued from front page Chief Inspector Pat O’Callaghan (at London Road), who is leading Operation Neptune II told the Re-Gen, “Strathclyde Police are all about keeping people safe and that’s exactly what Operation Neptune II is going to do. We are going to use every officer within B’ Division andsupplement this with significant resources from all over the Force. Specialist departments from Force headquarters will be out supporting this operation, making it our biggest continual sustained commitment of Strathclyde Police resources to this area ever. That’s how important we value the community in our area. They told us what they want and we are going to deliver it. We will be complementing good old fashioned policing with state of the art technology to ensure that there is no hidingplace for criminals. We will be utilising state of the art scanners to detect stolen mobile phones and other electrical property taken in robberies and thefts; Police Body Camera’s to prevent disorder and capture evidence of those who are the scourge of our streets; Ferro guard metal detectors to catch criminals that carry knives and special DNA traceable solutions to impact on the metal and cable thefts that pose a risk to the critical infrastructure that our communities rely on.” He continued, “ The most important aspect of all that we learned from last year’s operation was that throughout Operation Neptune II, we will need the continued support of the community. We need to build on the trust we have, give people more opportunities to engage with us and make them aware of what we have done tomake a difference to their lives. As well as the traditional methods of communication, Local area commanders will be utilising Twitter and other social media to allow the public to share in our activity on a daily basis.” Over the next month, in addition to the level of policing service that B’ Division provides on a daily basis, B’

Division will be delivering and additional 500 Focused Policing Plans, targeting prolific violent offenders, problem locations, robberies, metal thefts, unlicensed knife dealers, indoor violence, drug dealers, private security companies and licensed premises to name but a few. These plans will be driven by each of the five specific Local Area Commanders within B’ Division who can tailor their tactics and plans to meet the different needs of the communities that they serve. At the beating heart of these plans will be the local Community Policing Teams who know their communities and the criminals who reside within them. They will benefit from having the full force of Strathclyde Police standing side by side with them to improve the communities within which they work. In order to implement these plans Chief Inspector O’Callaghan explained that an innovative new system of intelligence gathering and analysis, piloted over the last year within the Maryhill area, will be utilised. The Victim, Offender, Location model (VOL) has proved a great success. The simple concept tasks Police Officers to actively target the most troublesome offenders and the locations that cause the greatest concern to the public. This ongoing process has proven to force the worst offenders to change their behaviour or face the full force of Strathclyde Police and the legal system.

division. The unique ability to catch offenders in isolated areas has proven a great success. For the beginning of Operation Neptune II this team has been doubled in size to ensure that they will be actively and robustly patrolling all areas of B’ Division 24/7 during the month of April. Detective Sergeant David Puttock stated “No matter where you are hiding, if you are committing crime, my unit will find you and bring you to justice.

B DIVISION PRIORITY CRIME TEAM The B’ Division Priority Crime Team are a uniformed team of officers whose primary purpose is the robust enforcement on criminals who are involved in violent crime and disorderly conduct within the division. They are a unit with a ‘no nonsense’ approach and will be tasked to any instances of violence or disorder within the division. The officers within the team are all public order trained and areregularly utilised for Old Firm games, public demonstrations and processions and marches.

operations linked to road traffic safety.


Serious and Organised crime groups will also be under attack from all angles during Operation Neptune II. It is widely acknowledged that organised criminals use apparently legitimate



Specialised Units within B’ Division, which Divisional Commander Wayne Mawson has boosted with increased numbers, will also be utilised in Operation Neptune II. These include the B’ Division Motor Cycle Unit which has been operating within the division for 4 years and have turned into one of the most productive teams within the force. Their remit is to make use of their off road capability and target disorder and violence across the whole

benefit of Operation Neptune II and supports Strathclyde Police to help keep us safe. You can play your part bycontacting the police with any information that you have regarding people known or suspect are committing crimes. This information will be treated with thestrictest confidence and will be acted on. Contact can be made via your local Community Policing Team on 0141 532 2000 or Crimestoppers, by calling 0800 555 000 or online at

During Operation Neptune II they will be doubled in strength in order to maximise their capability. They are experienced, motivated and eager to impact on the activities of criminals within the division.


The B’ Division Road Policing Unit are a dedicated team stationed within the division with a remit to target and enforce road traffic legislation and the criminal use of motor vehicles. They will be focussing on the following areas of criminality during Operation Neptune II such as, Disqualified Drivers, Drink Driving, Road Safety, Organised criminals and Bogus workers. They will also be using their specialist skills to assist local Community Policing teams with focused policing

businesses as a front to launder the proceeds crime. During Operation Neptune II, months of intelligence gathering will culminate in these businesses being targeted, disrupted and terminated. Last year Operation Neptune seized over £300,000 of drugs, restrained £330,165 of major criminal’s assets and seized over £28,000 in cash. This year with the support of partners including SEPA, BT Openreach, UKBA, GCSS, Glasgow City Council Licensing, HMRC, and DWP Chief Inspector O’Callaghan is confident that those figures can be exceeded to inflict pain on, and bring to justice the very people that exploit and bring misery to our communities. The Re-Gen newspaper fully supports the work that B’ Division are doing to keep people in the community safe. We hope that every reader feels the

Police officers locally have listened to people in our local communities through Police and Community Meetings (PAC), Key Individual Network (KIN) groups, Local Housing meetings, School forums and Strathclyde Police Public Consultation to establish exactly what the community priorities are. Local Area Commanders have also used the valuable feedback that was received from last years Operation Neptune to ensure that community priorities are addressed. Operation Neptune last year made a huge difference to the local communities in B’Division and the communities were not slow in speaking out in support of the operation. For example Carole McLuckie, chairwoman of Whiterose Community hall in Parkhead, said that local youngsters were aware of the heavy police presence and welcomed

officers engaging with the community. Mrs McLuckie, who has been involved in Whiterose for the past 11 years, said: “There is no doubt that children around here realised there was a greater police presence throughout the month. It was highly visible and officers on horseback were also on patrol. “What we have seen is that youngsters feel they can now approach their local community policing officers, and there was real engagement.” Gerry McDonald, head teacher of Carntyne’s St Aiden’s school for additional support for learning, said the school community had felt a confidence boost following the police response during Operation Neptune. Mr McDonald said: “We noticed a big impact during the initiative, and the support we had – including the response times – gave us great confidence. “We had a break-in which caused a great deal of damage and two computers were stolen, but it was also an upsetting time for our pupils. “Within two days an arrest was made and it made a real difference in being able to tell the youngsters that someone had been caught as it meant they were safe in theirsurroundings.” This community consultation has been dovetailed with months of gathering and analysing intelligence to ensure that the right officers are in the right place at the right time. Criminals that commit the worst crimes and threaten our communities with violence and fear to line their own pockets will have no hiding place.

APPRENTICE JOINER MEETS HIS MASTER! First–year joinery apprentice at John Wheatley College, Robert McAllen, received an ‘inspection’ visit from his employer last week, Charlie McCrindle of CWM Home Improvements, to see how his training was coming along and to bolster his confidence. Charlie, a Director of CWM Home Improvements, took Robert on almost a year ago and their working relationship has proved to be a real success. Last year, CWM’s long term business planning identified that the company could take on an apprentice and, originally an East End lad himself, Charlie was keen to give an opportunity to someone local and committed who was prepared to do the work. 17yr old Robert, who hails from Parkhead, had come to John Wheatley College as a winter leaver from Eastbank Academy and, from the off,

had shown promise on his construction skills programme. He was one of several young joinery students who had aptitude and talent and, after approaching John Wheatley College, Charlie was delighted to take Robert on as his apprentice. Robert now works two weeks with CWM Home Improvements and two weeks college-based training, learning his trade and playing a full role in College life. Much as he’s happy in College, he’s also looking forward to being ‘on the tools’ permanently as he truly enjoys his work. He says, “It’s great to get this chance to learn my trade AND to be employed. I’m loving it - I really appreciate the skills of the lecturers and the chance to work with Charlie and everyone at CWM.” CWM Home Improvements are a small family-run business which is based in Uddingston but has a showroom at the Forge Market in

Charlie said, ‘can-do’ attitude. He’s a real credit to them.” “Right away, Robert showed the right type of attitude and willingness to learn and I’m very pleased that we’ve been able to give him an opportunity to develop his joinery and personal skills in this way. We also feel that, by employing locally, we’re putting something back into the community.” Alan Sherry, Principal of John Wheatley College, added, “We are delighted that CWM Home Improvements is providing this opportunity for Robert and engaging with the College.

BBC Scotland and John Wheatley College launch 2013 apprentice scheme BBC Scotland and John Wheatley College in Glasgow have launched a second 12-month Skillset modern apprenticeship scheme as part of the Corporation’s contribution to the Commonwealth Games. Using the Skillset Modern Apprenticeship in Creative and Digital Media, 10 apprentices will be offered both vocational and more formal teaching in a variety of broadcast production skills. The year-long scheme is aimed at those aged 18 and over who are not already in employment or further education and training will take place both at John Wheatley College, the BBC Scotland studios, STV and at a number of independent production companies who have also backed the initiative. Ultimately the aim is to provide the

A DAZZLING DEBUT FOR ROBERT ! Local student, Robert Ferrol, has just won three medals in athletics – one gold and two silver! From Carmyle, 19yr old Robert was competing with TeamGB at the INAS World Indoor Athletics Championships in Manchester for the very first time. His first silver medal was in the 400m and the next in the 4 x 400m relay team, with a fabulous gold medal in between for his place in the 4 x 200m relay team where TeamGB took the title in a time of 1min 38.76”, beating Portugal and France into a close run 2nd and 3rd. Robert is a Creative Technologies student at John Wheatley College in East Glasgow and manages to fit his athletics round his studies. As a fairly recently-arrived member of the famous Shettleston Harriers, he is also clearly developing his talent and, with the support of his coach Tommy Patterson, hopes to continue to improve his personal best. Pictured here with Rodger Harkins, President of Shettleston Harriers and also a lecturer at the College, Robert

proudly displays his medals. This has been an excellent GB debut for this young man - he, and everyone who supports him, should be very proud of his hard work and achievement. We wish him every success in the years ahead. Watch this space!

students with sufficient skills to enable them to contribute to the BBC’s 2014 Commonwealth Games output from Glasgow across television, radio, online and supporting areas. This year BBC Scotland worked with John Wheatley College on a similar apprenticeship scheme because the college has considerable experience of supporting apprenticeship training which is essential in helping develop personal and employability skills. Now the search is on to find a fresh batch of apprentices for the 2013 scheme. “We are looking for people who are passionate about the media, full of ideas, and who are keen to help tell the story of the 2014 Commonwealth Games to our audiences. This is a fantastic opportunity for the apprentices as

the modern apprenticeship scheme is supported right across the industry,” said BBC Scotland Commonwealth Games editor Sharon Mair. Situated almost on the doorstep of the 2014Games site, John Wheatley College plays a key role in the East end of Glasgow. Alan Sherry, Principal, said: “This year’s inaugural Apprenticeship scheme brought significant opportunities in the field of Creative Technologies, widening access to employment in our own community and beyond. John Wheatley College is delighted that BBC Scotland continues to be a partner in the delivery of this trail-blazing programme. We are eager to add our core skills expertise to the crucial element of practical workplace experience which the BBC and their partners will establish.

This will help to inspire, develop and nurture creative talent in Scotland whilst contributing to a Commonwealth Games legacy.” Skillset’s Director of Scotland, Alasdair Smith, said: “The Skillset Modern Apprenticeship in Creative and Digital Media is a fantastic way for businesses to draft in exciting new talent from a diverse range of backgrounds, tailoring their development to the individual businesses’ needs. Skillset is here to help all Scottish media businesses to benefit from this innovative new qualification. We can provide advice on how to access the attractive range of financial incentives available for taking on a new apprentice so that, with our help, the Scottish media business will be able to fully embrace this new programme.”

STUDENTS BRING THEIR SKILLS TO TRADE ARCHIVE John Wheatley College photography and digital media students have linked with Glasgow Trades House to assist them with the compilation of their valuable and extensive archive. Glasgow Trades House in the city centre is an age-old institution dating back to the 17th century which each of the trade ‘guilds’ used as a meeting house. Tradition and heritage has been its mainstay over the centuries and they have amassed an archive of papers, materials, gifts and artefacts which the students, under the eye of lecturer George Mahoney, are now in the process of photographing and documenting in detail. Their area of concentration is currently the Wrights (woodworking and joinery). However, other crafts at the Trades House are watching the archive work develop and have already expressed an interest! The learners are also compiling a database of information and designing a (currently static but eventually interactive) website. There is a global army of amateur genealogists and ancestor seekers who regularly make enquiries of the Trades House in their heritage hunt and a reference resource such as a new interactive

website would be an excellent tool for them. In addition, Glasgow Trades House are in discussions with the National Museums of Scotland to help support the legacy of the Guilds in Glasgow. One of the three founding principles of the Trades’ Guilds is ‘Education’ and Glasgow Trades House is a key stakeholder in encouraging skills and learning in further education colleges in the city and surrounding areas.

Cardinal Winning Kids meet the Services


Local Elections 2012 –

Your Vote Certainly Counts SNP Candidates

AS part of the ongoing Community Policing Initiative Shettleston Police teamed up with other emergency services to visit the new Cardinal Winning School at Tollcross last week. The children and staff love these days where they can mix with the police, fire-officers and ambulance personnel and get an insight into just what is involved when the services are required. The noise of the “Blues and Twos” reverberated around the school as the kids pressed buttons, pointed hoses and generally tried out every device the services had on offer.

One of the main attractions were the horses which the children made friends with and many were drawn to the cycling course which had been set up. Scenes of crime officers were on hand to talk the pupils through just how to ensure vital evidence is retained and not only that there were volunteers from Playbusters there to do face-painting. May we just add that the cheese-burgers were delicious. Overall a great day was had by all and thanks goes to Sgt. Frank Hamill and the team at Shettleston Community Policing unit.

AS we approach the 3rd of May there still seems a bit of apathy regarding the local elections which will determine just which councillors will run our city for the next few years. How often do we hear people saying “It doesn’t really matter who is in office – They are all the same” well, believe it or not, many of the prospective candidates are standing because they have a passion for this wonderful city of ours and want the chance to make a difference. Many standing councillors have worked hard for Glasgow and many have basically been found out to be failures as far as the local community is concerned. Some use the local elections as a stepping stone to greater things and some are just happy to be councillors dealing with issues that affect both you and me.

Speaking to the first time candidates the impression we get is one of hope for the future of our city and it is down to you just who to elect to see if their thoughts and hopes come to fruition. Just in case all of you who are standing as candidates do not realise the undertaking you are about to embark on here is a reminder.

What is Required in Becoming a LOCAL Councillor? Becoming a councillor is a rewarding form of public service that puts people in a position where they can make a difference to the quality of other people’s daily lives. However, being an effective councillor requires hard work. Every day, councillors have to balance the needs and interests of their residents, voters,

political parties and the council. All these groups will make legitimate demands on the councillor’s time on top of their personal responsibilities to family, workplace and friends. It is therefore important that councillors understand their role so they can perform responsibly and effectively for the council and maintain the quality of their personal lives. The councillor’s role takes in: representing the ward, decisionmaking, policy and strategy,review and development, overview and scrutiny, regulatory duties and community leadership and engagement.

Representing the ward

The primary role of a councillor is to represent their ward and the people who live in it.

They also have a responsibility to communicate council policy and decisions to people in the ward. Members of political parties may find that their party offers advice and guidance on doing this. See the section on representing the ward.


Councillors have a central part to play in making decisions that impact on their ward and across the whole area covered by their council. They will be involved in decision-making through: full council, regulatory committees such as planning control or licensing, local voluntary organisation management, sitting on boards and as school governors, membership of partnership boards, being employers of staff on appointments, panels and disciplinary or grievance appeals.


Friday 6th April 2012



Councillors influence and determine the development and review of the council’s policy and strategy. They contribute to this through their: role in overview and scrutiny, involvement in advisory groups and partnerships, interaction with executive members, role as a representative on local community groups, role on area forums and committees, case work and membership of a political group.

Overview and scrutiny

Councillors have always been required to scrutinise the council and the overview and scrutiny function is a natural extension of representation. The process has recently become more clearly defined and distinct and the role of councillors now includes: providing a check on the activities of the executive through call-in powers, monitoring and reviewing

policy formulation and implementation, policy development, quality review, scrutiny of external bodies and agencies. Regulatory duties Local authorities are not just service providers, they also act as regulators. This involves councillors in quasi-judicial roles on special committees appointed directly by the council, such as planning and licensing committees. Most councils arrange special training for councillors undertaking these quasi-judicial responsibilities. In these roles, councillors are required to act independently and are not subject to the party group whip.

Community leadership and engagement

Labour Candidates Community leadership is at the heart of modern local government and

councils are taking on new responsibilities for working in partnership

with other organisations, including the voluntary and community sector, to

improve services and the quality of life of citizens.

“The SNP say this election is a stepping stone to their referendum. But no-one steps on Glasgow. The council election on 3 May is about putting Glasgow first.”

THE most famous steeplechase in racing history takes place next Saturday with the running of the John Smith Grand National at Aintree. The Re-Gen has unearthed a few not so well known and some famous stories about the race for your enjoyment. For instance, on the day of the 1928 National, before the race had begun, Tipperary Tim’s jockey William Dutton heard a friend call out to him: “Billy boy, you’ll only win if all the others fall down!” These words turned out to be true, as 41 of the 42 starters fell during the race. This year’s National was run during misty weather conditions with the going very heavy. As the field approached the Canal Turn on the first circuit, Easter Hero fell, causing a pile-up from which only seven horses emerged with seated jockeys. By the penultimate fence this number had reduced to three, with Great Span looking most likely to win ahead of Billy Barton and Tipperary Tim. Great Span’s saddle then slipped, leaving Billy Barton in the lead until he too then fell. Although Billy Barton’s jockey Tommy Cullinan managed to remount and complete the race, it was Tipperary Tim who came in first at outside odds of 100/1. With only two riders completing the course, this remains a record for the fewest number of finishers. The 1967 Grand National saw one of the race’s most remarkable incidents when most of the field were hampered or dismounted in a mêlée, allowing steer his mount wide of the havoc The 1981 running produced the rank outsider Foinavon to become a surprise winner at odds of 100/1. and make a clean jump of the fence arguably the most emotive and At the 23rd fence a loose horse named Popham Down, who had unseated on the outside. absorbing result in the race’s his rider at the first jump, suddenly veered across the leading group causing Although 17 jockeys remounted history.

horses cover a distance of four miles and four furlongs, the longest of any National Hunt race in Britain. The course is also notable for having one of the longest run-ins from the final fence of any steeplechase, at 494 yards. The Grand National was designed as a cross-country steeplechase when it was first officially run in 1839. The runners started at a lane on the edge of the racecourse and raced away from the course out over open countryside towards the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. The gates, hedges and ditches that they met along the way were flagged to provide them with the obstacles to be jumped along the way with posts and rails erected at the two points where the runners jumped a brook. The runners returned towards the racecourse by running along the edge of the canal before re-entering the course at the opposite end.

That countryside was incorporated into the modern course but commentators still often refer to it as “the country”, much to the confusion of millions of once-a-year racing viewers.

The East End is Growing Greener



READERS TIPS Miracle Vinegar

White vinegar is perfect for killing weeds that sprout through our hardtop driveway. The best part…it’s cheap! It’s also a very effective glass cleaner.

Playbusters were delighted to announce that they have been awarded £449,662 for their environmental projects in the same week that they hosted the Grow Green awards. The funding comes from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund and covers their Grow Green with Glasgow’s East End programme for the next three years. The project will continue the exciting work of the last two years, addressing issues of climate change across the

Magazine Swap

Instead of throwing previously-read magazines away, I drop them off in the laundry room of my apartment building. I have noticed some people reading the magazines while waiting for their laundry to wash or to dry. Also, some people pick up the magazines they are interested in and take them away with them. The magazines get at least one more reading and, hopefully, get passed on to other readers.

Tech-free for a Day

Don’t check your emails more than once a day. Only turn on your computer when you need to. Plan your computer use ahead of time so that you can save your self time and not be a slave to technology. This will also save energy too of course.

Re-use Everyday Items

East End of Glasgow with leadership from young people and volunteers. Through local food growing, energy saving, recycling and re-use, they are establishing a change in culture towards climate change and creating a sustainable future for the community. The news came the day before Playbusters hosted the Grow Green Awards at the Winter Gardens in Glasgow Green. The big winner on the night was Glasgow Bike Station who picked up the overall Grow Green Award as well as the sustainable transport award for promoting cycling across the city. The sustainable school award went to Eastbank Primary School who have grown their own food, reinstated a pond and were the first school in Glasgow to achieve a fourth green flag. The waste reduction and reuse award went to the volunteer team at Simply Swap who said “I think it’s absolutely terrific that we won the Grow Green Award. I never thought I’d be involved with something like this and it’s just great to see how Simply Swap has progressed from day one to where it is now and we can hopefully build on this further”. Two awards went to the North East of the city with North Glasgow Community Food Initiative picking up the sustainable food award and North Glasgow Housing Association collecting the sustainable business award. Jeremy Laycock, Senior Climate Challenge Officer at Playbusters said: “Continued support from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund shows

that the work we are doing fits well with their ongoing aims in terms of tackling climate change in the years ahead. “The continued funding recognises the success we have had in engaging the community in our work and in particular, with involving volunteers in all stages of our project. It allows us to build on the last two year’s work which has included running cycling clubs, helping people to reduce their energy bills and learn about growing their own food. We have also set up a number of community gardens, including Crownpoint Community Garden, where we have worked with a wide range of partners to deliver a beautiful garden that will be a real resource for the community. “We are determined to change people’s attitudes and we believe that we have been doing just that, particularly with our fashion swap shop – Simply Swap – which has been hugely successful at changing the way that people view ‘waste’ and helping to take away the stigma attached to second hand items. “We will take advantage of the Junior Climate Challenge Fund to expand the Grow Green programme’s youth activities; including ‘low carbon lifestyle’ training for young people, regular cycling clubs and further developing our successful toy swaps. “The Grow Green Awards are crucial in our programme and we are very much looking forward to celebrating the achievements of all our nominees. Playbusters are keen to get as many people as possible involved in the project so give them a call on 0141 551 0071 to find out more. This page is sponsored by the following:

Don’t throw out anything without asking yourself if it can be reused. I got this mentality from backpacking, where you have very few resources to work with. Lots of food packaging like plastic bags, if opened carefully, can be reused for something else.

Seek out no-waste packaging

I look for products with recyclable packaging. I avoid tetrapak, styrofoam and unnecessary bags. I don’t buy products in clamshell packing unless I absolutely have to. Making those choices means less waste, and fewer garbage bags too. It’s a ripple effect.

Cut and Reuse

Cut old shirts and use them as wash cloths in the kitchen and bathroom, etc.

At the Car Wash

Instead of using a hose, which wastes a lot of water when washing the car, I just use two buckets of water. One bucket with car wash soap solution, and one bucket with clean water for rinsing.

Get Crafty!

“I recycle my birthday cards by using them as bookmarks or for scrapbooking.

No Dryer Needed

Before taking the clothes out of washing machine, I run the last spin cycle one or two more times to wring out all possible water. It seems to me the electricity used to spin the washing machine drum would be far less than what would be needed to heat and evaporate water in the dryer. Get washing out on the green as much as possible .

One Woman’s Trash

Clean out some closets and put some reusable items in bags Then drop off to the local charity shop.

Drugs Recovery Local Officers from the Priority Crime Team London Rd Police Office, PCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gilmour and Moran, were carrying out Licensed Premises Inspections in the East End of Glasgow recently. Whilst visiting a well known Public House in the Gallowgate area of Glasgow they witnessed one of the patrons acting in a very nervous, shifty manner. As the officers approached the male they observed him trying to

conceal a shiny object that looked to them at this time like a knife. On speaking to him they informed him that he was being detained under statutary powers for the purpose of a search. However when he was taken out of the Public House to be searched the now accused stated that he had two pairs of scissors that were being used for personal reasons. On searching him the police witness Gilmour found two

pairs of scissors in his trouser pocket. On a further search a polythene bag containing 7 large pieces of cannabis resin were found concealed in his clothing. This male was arrested and conveyed to London Rd Police Office where a more detailed search found another 2 bars of cannabis resin. Further enquiries have resulted in another 5 arrests for contraventions of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

Old Firm Policing Plan a Success Although last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old firm game was taking place at Ibrox, it was widely publicised in that media it could effect crime and disorder in the East End of Glasgow and across the whole of the west of Scotland. The circumstances surrounding the game were unique with Glasgow Rangers currently in administration and the possibility that Glasgow Celtic could win the Scottish Premier League title for the first time in four years at the home of their greatest rivals. In preparation for this, Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Division provided officers for the match itself over in Govan and were also out in force in the East End of Glasgow with the remit of ensuring that whatever the score Strathclyde Police were keeping the community safe. With rest

days cancelled a long time ago, Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Division officers were out in force at no additional cost to the tax payer. An additional 103 officers were out in various uniform mobile and foot patrols supported by plain clothed officers from seven oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock in the morning until most people were tucked up in bed. Overall the behaviour of the communities in the East End of Glasgow was outstanding and although there was probably more alcohol consumed than on a normal Sunday afternoon this was controlled and did not spill over into violence. This was in no small part down to Police Officers attending at every Public House and off sales, from the minute that they opened and continually throughout the day.

Licensed premises were inspected and license holders reminded of their responsibility to the surrounding communities with no person being sold alcohol that was in a drunken state. This was enforced vigorously by officers who received an excellent response from Licensed Premises. At the final whistle Celtic fans poured out of a number of public houses on the Gallowgate and took part in a spontaneous huddle. With sufficient police numbers the fans were allowed to continue their celebrations safely, without any disturbance to other people in the community and with no arrests having to be made. The levels of violence that were feared did not materialise due to the fact that wherever tensions became fraught there were

so many high visibility police jackets buzzing about, incidents were quelled very quickly. This amounted to fewer arrests and reports than the average weekend in the east end of Glasgow which is a credit to the local communities and the officers who were working that day. Chief Inspector Brian Hughes, the new Sub Divisional Commander at London Rd Police office, was in charge of the anti-disorder operation and stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No matter what the circumstances are, our priority in Strathclyde Police will continue to be Keeping People Safe. With detailed planning, commitment and professionalism from officers and the support from the local community thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what we achieved todayâ&#x20AC;?.

SCOTTISH YOUTH FOOTBALL - RAYMOND KELLY National Secretary David Little has led tributes in memory of former President Raymond Kelly, who sadly lost his battle against cancer last month. Mr Kelly (56) was in charge of the Aberdeen and District Juveniles for a remarkable 26 years. A former juvenile referee in Dundee, Raymond’s job took him to Aberdeen, where he continued to officiate after qualifying as a referee at the tender age of 13! Mr Kelly advanced into the role of helping to run leagues in the North East - and his unstinting work led to becoming Vice President (10 years ago) and ultimately President of the Scottish Youth Football Association, with whom he served an additional year to help guide them through major structural changes, and was into a fourth term of office. In March, 2011, Raymond married his wife Moira, but they were unable to enjoy their first Christmas together after he developed early symptoms of a brain tumour. During his presidency of the SYFA, Mr Kelly was the driving force of a joint initiative with the SFA to set out

a Player Pathway for all young footballers in Scotland. This was something which had been talked about for many years, and it was no accident that the implementation happened on Raymond Kelly’s watch. Raymond set in place systems and brought a professional attitude to a voluntary organisation. His sad death is a major blow for Scottish youth football. Our sympathies are with his wife Moira, his mother, plus close friend and work colleague Linda. Scottish Youth Football Association National Secretary David Little said: “Raymond’s passing puts football’s minor problems into a far greater perspective and I would urge everyone to come together and work for the benefit of the grassroots game, thus leaving an ongoing legacy and a continuance of Raymond’s lifelong commitment to football.” As a mark of respect to Mr Raymond Kelly, a minute’s silence was observed at every league and cup game throughout the Scottish Youth Football Association.

THE Under-21 visitors had a goal disallowed for offside after 22 minutes. Balmoral, with their first shot at goal, netted in 47 minutes.

GLASGOW UNIVERSITY 1, BROOMHOUSE 4. ‘HOUSE trailed yet again after 43 minutes, but this time they responded to some stern halftime words from their coaches. David Omozik netted on 52 minutes followed by a Chris Neilly penalty two minutes later. Omozik struck again, and returning striker David Quinn wrapped up the First Division points after 73 minutes.

EASTER CUP BOOST FOR YOUTH TEAMS GLASGOW GREEN is set to host a three-day football tournament involving well-known youth teams. The 2nd Glasgow Easter Cup International event will bring together Scottish and Irish clubs at six different age levels. Following the success of last year’s inaugural tourney - which also involved girls’ football - organisers have managed to attract entries from two Northern Ireland clubs. Camlough Rovers are in the Under-13 and Under-15 sections, while Limavady United Youth have entered their Under-19 squad. Scottish talent extends right across the country, and one of last year’s winners, Blantyre Vics, will be hoping for a repeat success after moving up from their Under-15 final victory against The Celtic Boys’ Club. Former Scottish Cup winners Hillwood Boys’ Club are

represented at Under-14 level, while Ayrshire cracks Glenafton Athletic will be one of the early favourites in the Under-15 age group. In all, fixtures have been mapped out for teams from Under-13 to Under-19s. Qualifying games take place at Glasgow Green on Friday and Saturday, while Sunday is reserved for the finals. For the record, the 2011 FINAL results were: Under-13 - Airdrie United BC 4, KSC Town 1; Under-14 - Clydebank BFC 5, Mallow United 0; Under-15 - Blantyre Vics 1, The Celtic Boys’ Club 0; Under-16 Gourock YAC 4, Kilpatrick 2; Under-17 - Milton Star 8, Raith Rovers 7; Under-19 -Campsie Black Watch 4, Harmony Row 3. Girls (1994) - 1st Hibernian.

EASTER silverware... Blantyre Vics Under-15 celebrate their 1-0 victory against The Celtic Boys’ Club a year ago. Vics have entered a squad for the latest Glasgow Easter Cup tournament at Glasgow Green. 2nd Shelbourne LFC Girls. Ladies Open Age - 1st Hamilton Accies Ladies FC. 2nd - Shelbourne LFC Ladies. PLATE FINALS: Under-13 - Eastwood 1, Craigie Colts 2. Under-14 - Third Lanark 2, Lenzie Youth Club 1. Under-15 - Wolves FC 1, Giffnock Soccer Centre 0. Under-16 Easthall Star 2, Morton Boys’ Club 1. Under-17 - Claremont 3, Port Glasgow Boys’ Club 2. Under-19 - Jim Baxter Memorial 0, Glenvale 2. Meanwhile, the SYFA West Region Under-16 Squad will attempt to clinch a third consecutive Inter-Region Cup final victory later this month. The round-robin competition got off to a flying start

when West defeated hosts Central Region 3-0, and their qualification was assured with a thumping 5-1 Friday evening victory against South West at Toryglen. Last year, West crushed South East Region 4-0 in the Under-16 final. West Under-15s started their bid to join them with well-taken goals from David Coyle (Third Lanark) and Maryhill Juniors’ Ryan McLaughlin in a 2-1 midweek win over South West. With the new-look West Under-14 Squad also shaping up in terms of results and quality, all three age groups look set for a successful summer.
