offer. Eventually after failing to turn up twice Mr Laverty contacted Paul and gave him the kick up the backside he needed to go along to the audition and because he had just lost his job and it was just after Christmas and the bills were mounting Paul decided to meet Ken Loach. He put his heart and soul into the audition as he felt that his life experience would carry him through and thankfully everything worked out well and Paul was offered the Lead Role in the new film “Angels Share.” Paul is a typical Eastender who admits himself to being no angel, but given all the hard knocks he has had to endure both personally and professionally this is a tremendous rags to riches story, (well maybe not riches at the present time but we have high hopes for him). Paul has now appeared in “Angels Share” plus a short film based in London and he has now won a role in the new Scarlett Johansson

Paul Deserves the “Angels Share” AROUND a year and a half ago in Barrowfield in the heart of the East End, the Re-Gen met up with a lad who was basically going nowhere, as he had just lost a job he loved because of internal politics, (which we won’t go into just now), things were looking bad and he was totally browned off with life. Paul Brannigan was at one of the lowest points in his life and it was basically down to him which way he would turn. Thankfully an opportunity came along which would change his life completely and he has never looked back. Paul was approached by Paul Laverty on behalf of Film Director Ken Loach, with a view to going for an audition in a film that was being set up in Glasgow. Now Paul Brannigan had never had any acting experience in his life and in fact the only contact he had with the Cinema was an occasional jaunt to the Showcase in Bargeddie so he was a little unsure about taking up the

certainly won’t let this go to his head, as speaking to him earlier this week, he hasn’t changed a bit. The Re-Gen would like to wish Paul every success in his new career and we will keep our readers informed
on his progress in the future. “Angels Share” premieres in Glasgow on the 29th of May and we are delighted to be able to run a completion in this week’s paper (see details inside).

Daniel strikes out
CG local press ad AW 2012 copy.pdf
Young Daniel Masters (14) from Springboig, has been selected to play for Scotland in the under 16 group at the Tenpin bowling Triple Crown Event being held in Cardiff this year. Daniel will compete against the best of the English, Irish and Welsh players and he is quietly confident of returning home to Glasgow with something to show for his efforts. Daniel has been playing for C&C Thistle from the age of 6 under the excellent coaching of John Kilpatrick. Training every week at the Quay in Glasgow along with his team mates Daniel attends additional training sessions around Scotland. What mades this young man’s achievement very impressive is that Daniel is the only boy from Glasgow as his Scotland team mates come from Stirling, Kilmarnock, Leuchers to name but a few. We would like to especially thank everyone at St Mungo’s Academy for their support in allowing Daniel to attend this event. A special thanks goes to
coach John because without his input, advice and wise words this would not be possible. Daniel’s team, C&C Thistle, are looking for new members so why not
give it a try they have boys & girls from the age of 7 to 15. contact details email@example.com for further info regarding training etc.

THE Re-Gen has been contacted following the last edition of the paper where someone perceived that the paper took the stance of supporting the Labour Party in the run-up to the local council elections which took place on Thursday 3rd May. May we take this opportunity to put the record straight. Both the Labour Party and the SNP were contacted in the run-up to the paper being put together and the Press officer for Scottish Labour came back to us and gave us the details including photos, of all their candidates in the East End of Glasgow for the paper.

was contacted at the same time and also Emailed, unfortunately we heard nothing back from him or his office. We then contacted David Linden (Head of Campaign for SNP in the East End) and Graeme Hendry (SNP Councillor in Glasgow City Council) offering the exact same opportunity we had offered the Labour Party. We were informed that the SNP already had all their marketing
campaign in hand and would not be doing anything else in the local press. We decided to run with the material we had received from the Labour Party Press Office and this was why there was no SNP publicity in the Re-Gen. We will continue to work alongside both parties as we have done in the past and we trust this will clear up the confusion. 211 Glasgow Road, Baillieston, Glasgow G69 6EZ

Aries (21 March - 20 April) xxxx Strap yourself in and hold on tight the next week or so is going to be a bit of a bumpy ride as Pluto and Uranus in your house brings in changes and it brings then hard and fast!

Jupiter in your sign helps amazing things to happen, so set your ideas high and achieve all you wish to!
The xxxx Eclipse on the 20th see’s you in the driving seat where love and career matters are concerned and a sudden clarity is yours! Your main objective in the last 10days in May is to keep focused on your objectives, do not lose interest and keep both eyes firmly fixed on the finishing line.
Cancer (22 June - 23 July) The time of the eclipse sees your xxxxxxxxx intuition at an all-time high and it is very important to trust it at that time, it is also important to follow your hopes for promotion at work with a grounded approach, ambition is good but being too pushy may get you into a bit of a conundrum!

Capricorn (22 Dec - 20 Jan)
The eclipse on the 20th may turn xxxxx you attentions to love, as you will be feeling the effect of this eclipse in your emotional zone. Try not to rake up to many memories of past loves and negative situations and use this energy to cut clear away from the past and enjoy a happy love life.
Aquarius (21 Jan - 19 Feb)
The next two weeks is all about you. xxxxxxx Doing what you feel is right for you, wither that is at home, work or social interests it is time to re-shape up your life, a very creative and intuitive sign you instinctively know now what need to be doe, so what’s stopping you?
Pisces (20 Feb - 20 Mar) xxxxxxxxxx As one of the dreamers of the zodiac it is important that you keep fixed on reality this month, try to go with facts and don’t allow others to try to influence your decisions without digging deeper first, not your natural forte but if you accomplish this you will make a big leap forward.

Sizzling Suzie’s Spring Selection
Hi everyone. Well done to the girls who are taking part in the annual 5k run and if you know anyone doing it make sure you dig deep and sponsor them. Also a very special well done to my mate Sybil who climbed Ben Nevis to honour her nephew’s memory by raising loads of cash for The British Heart Foundation .Yes it’s that time of year again when we are all doing our last minute attempts to be beach beautiful, in preparation for our holidays. I like to eat well all year , and running around trying to keep up with a four year old helps burn the calories. I still like to go the extra mile before a holiday if only so I can enjoy all the different foods whilst there. This week I have come up with a few really tasty and filling salads. I don’t think you can get a tastier, fresher “fast food” . It just takes a little thought and a few extra ingredients to turn plain old lettuce, cucumber. and some tomatoes into something really special. Buy the quinoa and give it a try. Just follow the instructions on the pack. It is a great “super food” and you can use it in many ways as an alternative to stodgy rice, potatoes and pasta. Fresh fruit salad just rounds it off nicely and using low fat yoghurt instead of ice cream helps.
Super salad with quinoa 1 cup of quinoa soaked and drained 1 packet of baby gem lettuce separated into leaves 4 large ripe vine tomatoes cut into wedges Half a cucumber diced 1 courgette sliced into ribbons (use a totty peeler) 1 small can of sweet corn drained 2 baby beetroots grated 1 yellow pepper finely sliced 1 orange pepper finely sliced Handful of toasted pine nuts 1 small can of mixed beans. Small cup of good Olive oil 2 tbsp Wholegrain mustard 1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar 1 clove of garlic crushed Pinch of salt, pepper and sugar. Layer all of the ingredients in a large flat dish. Dress the salad 10 minutes before serving to allow the dressing to really soak in and add depth of flavour. I make my dressing in an old jar and keep it in the fridge. There are some really good ready made dressings too. You can see how colourful and appetising this salad is and with the added beans and quinoa for added protein it really is a belly-fat buster.
Super salad with grilled chicken 1 packet of baby gem lettuce separated into leaves 4 large ripe vine tomatoes cut into wedges Half a cucumber diced Half a butternut squash sliced into ribbons 1 large carrot sliced into ribbons 1 can of broad beans drained 1 can of berlotti drained Handful of raisins 2 grilled chicken breasts cut into thin slices with the skin removed. Layer all of the ingredients in a large flat dish. Again Dress 10 minutes before serving to allow the dressing to really soak in and add depth of flavour. I like the chicken to be still be warm so add after you add the dressing.

GLASGOW School leads the way A Glasgow primary school has again become the first in the city to be given a prestigious United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) award. Swinton Primary School in Baillieston were recently presented with the Level 2 UNICEF UK Rights Respecting School Award by Tam Baillie (Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People), at a ceremony in the school. It was the first school in Glasgow to become a Rights Respecting School when it was awarded the Level 1 (Rights Respecting School) Award in 2010. The award scheme encourages schools to place the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of its ethos and curriculum. A Rights Respecting School not only teaches aboutchildren’s and human rights: it also models rights and respect in all its relationships, whether teacher to pupil, pupil to teacher, pupil to parent or pupil to pupil. The school is now able to help other Glasgow schools achieve and benefit from the Award scheme. Michelle Kay, head teacher at Swinton Primary School,
LABOUR CALLS FOR FUNDING BOOST FOR ADVICE SERVICES SCOTTISH Labour has called for the SNP government to provide additional funding for advice services to help cope with the significantly increased demand expected during the transition to the new welfare system. There are concerns that there will be a massive increase in demand for advice from agencies as the Tory-led government’s changes to the welfare system begin to kick in, particularly as a result of expectations concerning the level of online applications. While additional funding has been given to advice agencies in England and Wales, no such funding has been made
available here in Scotland by the SNP government. Scottish Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing, Jackie Baillie MSP, said: “We all expect a huge increase in demand for advice services as a result of these changes, but so far the SNP government has failed to make any extra money available to deal with that additional demand. Our advice services that do such an important job in supporting some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people, but they are already under huge pressure as a result of the recession. The last thing they need is a
massive, unfunded increase in demand for their services. Scotland will be hit harder than any other part of the United Kingdom by the Tories unfair changes to the welfare system. It is our duty to not only mitigate the damage of these Tory policies here in Scotland, but also to ensure Scots receive the help, support and advice they need. People deserve to know where they stand. I hope other parties will back Scottish Labour’s positive calls to ensure our advice services are properly funded. If we do not, there is a real danger our advice services will be unable to cope.”
said: “I am absolutely delighted our school has been given this award. “Everyone, pupils, staff, parents and the wider community, put a great deal of effort into making this possible and working together to ensure Rights are embedded into the culture of our school. “It is important for our children to not only know they have rights but also to learn that with these rights come responsibilities
to implement them in their everyday lives in school and at home.” Central to the Rights Respecting Award is the idea that children can improve the quality of their own and their families’ lives if they learn what their rights and responsibilities are. By empowering children to recognise their responsibilities within the school and home it can help to raise self-esteem, confidence andachievement.

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.”

John Wheatley College Hosts Ministerial Visit Glasgow East college, John Wheatley, played host to the Minister for Youth Employment, Angela Constance MSP, earlier this week to discuss strategies for young learners in the Glasgow East and North East communities. Some of the College’s young students attended the event, which included partners from Milnbank Housing Association, Glasgow City Council Education Services and Social Work Services and the BBC, and were given the opportunity to air their views and experiences, as well as discuss job opportunities for young people in Scotland. The Minister listened to College staff and partner organisations as they outlined the successful programmes targeting young people attending through John Wheatley College. Each organisation was keen to emphasise the need for a partnership approach to the young learners involved, whether that be at a practical support level from housing associations such as Milnbank HA, or from Social Work Services and Department of Education, or from work placement providers and potential employers such as the BBC. The trail-blazing BBC Modern Apprenticeship programme has proved a huge success and is already recruiting the next session’s learners. The young apprentices split their time between John

Wheatley College, where they learn creative, vocational and essential skills, and one of the many partnership organisations, such as BBC and STV, where they can put their skills to work. In addition, learners from the Transitions to Learning and Work programme which is supported by Glasgow City Council were represented. This programme addresses the learning and employability needs of disadvantaged young people, many of whom are ‘looked after’, providing a strong support network as well as Essential Skills learning and progression routes. The programme, with the support last year of Angela Constance MSP and prior to her ministerial appointment, levered in significant funding from the Big Lottery Fund to help develop and extend the reach of the programme. The College was delighted to host the Minister’s visit and grateful for her support. Chair of the College’s Board of Management, Andy Woolley, said, “We’re very pleased that the Minister could join us today and take time to speak with our young learners from the BBC Apprentice programme and Transitions to Learning and Work. Both programmes continue to go from strength to strength, due in no small part to the successful and committed partnership arrangements which underpin them.

“The Big Lottery Funding achieved for the Transitions programme has been central to its success and we would like to thank the Minister for her support in this award-winning initiative. “We are grateful, too, to our partners at Milnbank Housing Association and Glasgow City Council who help to support these young people throughout their learning journey with us. The consistency and stability they provide is crucial to the successful progression of each young learner.”

Why more and more children cycle to school.
Cycling to school is becoming more popular than ever. Cycling to school is great for kids. It’s a fun way to get exercise and healthier kids are happier, more self-confident and find it easier to concentrate in class. Cycling to school is great for drivers. With more children cycling to school, fewer parents have to do the school run. This cuts down on traffic congestion for people commuting to work and makes the drive quicker and easier. Cycling to school is great for parents. It means your child is getting a large portion of their 60 minutes of daily exercise just by going to school. It gives kids independence and freedom,
boosting their self-confidence. It means you don’t have to ferry them to school, saving you time. And it’s free. But you probably know all that already. What you perhaps didn’t know, are the lengths we’re going to, to make cycling to school safer than it’s ever been. Cycle training helps build your child’s confidence. The Bikeability Scotland scheme has replaced the training many of us received when we were kids. It’s designed to be fun and informative and gives children the skills they need to cycle on today’s roads. There are three levels of Bikeability Scotland, which starts out with basic skills in the playground, and progresses right through to making independent journeys on the road network. 70% of Scotland’s schools are already delivering Bikeability Scotland training, with more joining the scheme every year. Cycle Friendly Schools. More and more of Scotland’s schools are becoming Cycle Friendly Schools. The award is

given to schools that support cycling as part of the school culture by providing the right facilities, training and promotion to encourage children to travel by bike. There are over 130 Cycle Friendly Schools in Scotland, covering 36,000 pupils.
Over 16,000 children already cycle to school regularly.
Safer roads. The common perception seems to be that the roads today are more dangerous than ever, but that’s really not true. The number of children involved in an accident cycling to school has halved in the last ten years, and the number of children hurt by cycling in general has declined by 76% in that time. In 2010 around 16,000 children were cycling to

school on a regular basis, yet there were just 13 reported accidents. Support the campaign and give kids cycle space. Despite all that, we know that letting children cycle to school is still a concern for some parents. That’s why we’re asking drivers everywhere to look out for child cyclists, slow down when passing them and give them as much space on the roads as possible. Our national Give Me Cycle Space campaign aims to create greater awareness of children cycling to school and make the school gates a more cycle friendly place.
Why more and more children cycle to school.

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.

Jacqueline’s placement proves worthwhile
Jacqueline Jackson a volunteer with Playbusters was on a placement in the toddler room at Elmcroft Nursery School as part of the HNC in Early Education and Child Care Course being offered at John Wheatley College, and a major part of the course required an autonomous research project involving a sample group of children in order to gather information through naturalistic observations, followed by the introduction of a planned programme of learning experiences which focused on co-operative play, together with reference to relevant early years research materials. Speaking to the Re-Gen Jacqueline said, “I was interested in how young children develop and forge relationships through simpleco-operative play and based my research on this topic in order to facilitate the toddlers’concept of their expectations, goals and boundaries. With the co-operation of my key worker - Child Development Officer Leanne Stewart and the permission of the Head Teacher Mrs Elizabeth McEwan, I initiated, supported and executed a
who specialise in outdoor play visited the nursery and I collaborated with them to provide all the children in the play room with an opportunity to experience diversity, encouraging their participation and cooperation. In summary my topic was to introduce outdoor activities to enhance simple co-operative play. For the majority, my programme of activities was successful in achieving this and provided opportunities for the toddlers to share and co-operate through their active learning play experiences; the children became interactive, recognising and responding to the actions of each other
programme of outdoor active learning experiences to enhance simple co-operative play, commencing with warm up songs that progressed to an organised obstacle course. I wanted the children to learn by being actively involved in order to acquire and develop social abilities, absorb and enhance their knowledge as well as respond to interaction. The
learning experiences and opportunities offered utilised resources that were age and stage appropriate and stimulated and extended their interests, met health and safety guidelines, were readily available, current, clean and complete and were of sufficient quantity to allow all children in the play room to participate. The penultimate activity
was an obstacle course – I discussed with my key worker the possibility of promoting the nursery and the organisation Playbusters through a PR exercise involving The Re-GEN and explained that this would not only support my research project, but also raise the profile of the nursery as well as the outside agency. The local organisation
and became aware of certain rules of behaviour. These actions demonstrate that children who are described by some as being ego-centric, possess the cognitive ability to consider others. Tina Bruce, Play Theorist writes, “children develop a sense of their identity, working out the concepts of I, me and you. This helps them to go beyond themselves in their ideas, feelings and relationships.” (Bruce, 2001). This story is part of the ReGen’s continuing interest in what John Wheatley College is offering local people in the way of constructive courses. Look out for more in future editions.

GLASGOW EAST & NORTH EA
WISH TO THANK ALL CONSTITUENTS WHO FOLLOWING the local council elections the East End have a few new faces representing the area and also a few “old faces” returning to the City Chambers.

Glasgow’s history, Sohan Singh. Although most of those who ran and were defeated accepted the fact graciously, there are still one or two who are continuing to “Greet” about the fact that they were rejected but as they said in their leaflets prior to the election, “The People Have Spoken”. The Re-Gen would just like to say, accept the result and get on with your lives now. Glaswegians have now elected a new
group of councillors and the Re-Gen will be monitoring them every step of the way to ensure that the promises they made before the election are carried out on behalf of the constituents they now represent. Make no mistake – The Re-Gen will be watching all of you and reporting the truth (as we always do). Here are the final results in each ward...

Working with local people - North East Public Partnership Forum Update Members of the North East Sector, Glasgow City CHP, Parkhead Hub Working Group visited the new Barrhead Health & Social Care Centre in March, along with Anne Marie Kennedy, Chair, East Renfrewshire Public Partnership Forum (PPF) and East Renfrewshire staff. The working group were most impressed by the facilities offered by the Centre which hosts health and social care services on one site or hub. The group also plans to visit Pollok Civic Realm with local PPF members. The site visit was to look at how the Centre operated in advance of the public meeting on 27th March to look at potential options for the future use of the Parkhead Hospital building. One option is to develop a “hub” at Parkhead, which would be a building, shared by public and voluntary sector agencies from where they can deliver a range of services. This work is at a very early stage and no decisions have been made by the Health Board, but the Sector is very keen to hear the views of staff, patients, local people and other agencies. Some of the main points raised by the local people who attended the meeting on 27th March held at John Wheatley College, Haghill Campus were: •The Community need all the existing services on the site •One door access to all services would help to reduce stigma around attending mental health services •There were strong support for a community hub and cafe where voluntary groups could have meetings and provide information about local services. The consensus was that there is local support for the hub approach and for using these buildings to their best advantage. Meetings were also held with North East Sector Staff. Staff were keen to put their ideas forward on issues such as refurbishments versus new build, types of accommodation needed for services and different ways of working. The North East Public Partnership Forum (PPF) of Glasgow City Community Health Partnership is a network of local individuals and organisations who meet every six weeks to discuss how health and social care services are designed and delivered in North East Glasgow.
For further information about the PPF: Phone: Tony Devine on 0141-277-7540 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
PPF Meeting Dates for 2012 are: 28th June, (Main discussion topic is Public Transport to Hospitals). Following meetings are 16th August, 27th Sept, 8th Nov, 13th Dec 2012. Time 6.30pm till 9pm. Venue John Wheatley College, Haghill. Please come along and find out how you can have your say on local NHS services.

Lost in Easterhouse – 170 Stones Slimming World consultant Carrina McGovern was over the moon when she lost 2st 10lbs around two years ago and so she decided to become a Slimming World consultant and start Slimming World classes. Based in St Benedict’s Hall in Westerhouse Road and the Masonic Hall in Lochdochart Road her clubs are now thriving and little wonder as the weight seems to be falling off her members, like “Snaw aff a Dyke.” Take for instance the last challenge her classes took up namely “Let’s Beat Obesity” which ran over 12 weeks and resulted in a fantastic combined weight loss of 170 Stones,
I Slimming World
which by anyone’s standards is tremendous. Carrina is very proud of the fact that she began her class in St Benedicts with 9 members and the class in the Masonic began with 52 members. Now she caters for around 160 members a week and judging by the enjoyment the regulars get from their weekly sessions she is onto a winner and so are her members. The new Summer campaign is just about to begin and is entitled “We love Summer” and just how many of you out there really love summer if you are at present carrying a bit of excess weight? Well Carrina has the answer every Monday and Thursday and everyone is welcome along, Men, Women and Children (11-15 years olds accompanied by an adult) and in fact the children don’t even have to pay. During the classes
the members get· An amazing no-hunger eating plan that you’ll love, · Recipe and menu ideas for every occasion, · Family friendly eating in and eating out ideas! · A fabulous lifestyle activity programme, Body Magic, · Awards and celebrations for every achievement, · Loads of help, encouragement and motivation when you need it most, plus · Slimming strategies that will help you lose weight beautifully and keep slim for life!, so why not get yourself along to the Slimming World classes and don’t throw out your old gear because by the time Carrina is finished with you, you will be able to wear them again with pride. Not only that you will certainly meet new friends and working together the weight should soon drop off, (As Carrina has already Proved).

THE Fosters Scottish Amateur Sunday Trophy Final for 2012 took place on Sunday the 6th May at the Braidwood Motor Company Stadium (formerly known as Almondavle), Livingston. Bridgeton based Finnart AFC faced a strong Ayrshire team, The Geek, competing in their first season in the Fosters Trophy. A fast paced match saw Finnart AFC take an early 2 goal lead through Div MacKay. The same player then went on to complete his hattrick, (no mean feat in any game never mind a national cup final), and Finnart AFC looked on easy street. Although The Geek team gave 100% they were certainly no match for the lads from Bridgeton and further goals from Brian Blair and Danny Taylor, who came off the bench and with his first touch, wrapped up the scoring with a fine
looping header into the far corner of the net. Finnart’s overall play determined where the trophy would end up and manager Phil Blair was delighted that the hard work and training put in by the team was rewarded. Finnart AFC have every reason to be proud as this is their 8th win in 10 finals and when you consider the amount of teams from all over Scotland that enter this prestigious competition Finnart deserve all the praise going. All credit goes to The Geet for a battling performance, and for reaching the final in their first year. The sponsors “Fosters” Man of the match award was given to Finnart’s hat trick hero, David (Div) Mackay. Needless to say a few pints of the

Parliamentary Patter Margaret Curran MP LAST year at the Scottish Parliamentary Elections, the people of Glasgow East sent a clear message to the Scottish Labour Party. They told us they wanted us to be more firmly attached to our communities, they wanted us to listen and they wanted us to change. After we lost Glasgow Shettleston - and indeed many seats across Glasgow - the Scottish Labour Party returned to our communities, listened and reacted to the
message that people sent out. We started the fight back to ensure the people of the East End felt they could once again vote for Scottish Labour. At the local elections this month, nearly twenty thousand people voted for Scottish Labour in the East End. This means that 56% of the people who voted in the East voted for Scottish Labour. This support has given the Glasgow Labour Councillors who make up the new administration a clear mandate to govern effectively for the
communities that they represent. However despite the warm weather, the turnout for these elections was disappointingly low. I am determined to work closely with the newly elected councillors to encourage people to get out and vote and rebuild people’s trust in politics so that we can work together at all levels of our communities to improve local services, our schools and develop better transport links throughout the East End.
I was proud to watch a new generation of Labour Councillors be elected on May 4th – 6 of the 20 new Labour Councillors were elected here in the East End. The new candidates are vibrant and active within their communities and will work closely alongside their colleagues who have previously served as councillors in Glasgow City Council. Together, they will form a team with a real passion for the East End, bringing both experience and fresh thinking to their new roles.
I look forward to working with all the councillors both those of which are new and returning. We will continue to work for the people of the East End and show Scotland what we can can achieve for our city when we work together for the good of our local communities.

Paul Martin MSP AFTER weeks of campaigning, days of door canvassing and many hours of speaking to voters the local election results are in. In Glasgow, Labour had a fantastic result and returned a Labour majority under the leadership of Gordon Matheson. With a campaign based on the Labour Party’s record in Glasgow and vision for our city’s future, the electorate decided that Labour had their interests at heart and that Glasgow would not be used by opposition parties as a stepping stone for independence. The elections were a
ringing endorsement for the ‘Glasgow Guarantee’ of creating jobs and training for our young people. Many people I spoke too supported our idea to give over 80s help with their heating bills, especially in these difficult times. One thing that most people mentioned to me on the doorstep was Glasgow Labour’s campaign for better buses. In huge parts of our city we are stuck with a second rate bus service that is run in the interests of profit and not passengers. I will continue to campaign for the regulation of bus services to make buses consider the
needs of our communities and not just profit margins. Despite the magnificent for Labour, it was disappointing to note that the number of people voting was only around 40% across the country. Local elections are incredibly important as it is the local councillors that we elect who control and decide many of the everyday services people rely on. Having your say on what happens in our schools, how we look after our elderly and what level of council tax we should pay are all decided at a local level.
In the North of the City we have elected a strong Labour team in Helen Stephen, Chris Kelly, Allan Stewart, Gilbert Davidson, Gerry Leonard and Sohan Singh. These councillors care deeply about the future of our city and I know that they will work positively with Willie Bain MP and me to make our communities even better. If you need to get in contact with me about any issue you can telephone my office on 0141 564 1364 or you can email me on paul.martin.msp@scottish. parliament.uk.

John Mason MSP THE first constituent into my office on Monday morning was complaining about alcohol. Her weekend had been ruined by people drinking in her close and urinating in full view of her kids. This is not acceptable. Later on Monday Health Secretary, Nicola Sturgeon, announced the minimum price per unit of alcohol is to be 50p. She has to be congratulated for acting on this. When minimum pricing was first mooted by the SNP, all of the opposition parties in Holyrood opposed it. Now,
just a couple of years on, we see the Tories and the Liberal Democrats making a complete u-turn and backing the policy. So Labour seem isolated in their position of wanting more talk but no action. The sad reality is that too many of us are drinking too much. On Monday evening I enjoyed three pints in the Barrachnie Inn after an SNP branch meeting. But the danger is we drift into the habit of having too many drinks too often. The problem affects
people in all walks of life. As alcohol has become relatively cheap, alcohol-related hospital admissions have quadrupled, and it is shocking that half of our prisoners now say they were drunk when they committed the offence. It is time for this to stop. Introducing a minimum price per unit will help us to tackle these problems. It is not a magic bullet – we need education and lots more as well. But there is widespread support for trying minimum pricing –
from the medical profession, police forces, charities and from significant parts of the drinks and licensed trade industry. Finally congratulations to all those elected as councillors in the recent elections. All the parties have new faces and hopefully we can all work together for the good of our part of the City. But especially I was delighted that the SNP now has 27 councillors… a far cry from 1999 when I was there myself with only 1 colleague!

Thief captured Officers from Shettleston Police Office Community Policing Teams over the past month have been asking members of the community in Shettleston, Tollcross and Parkhead to be vigilant for persons acting suspiciously around motor vehicles. The community have been asked to secure their vehicles, remove valuables, for example, Sat Navs and cradles etc. Police have also been providing additional high visibility patrols in these areas during Operation Neptune in order to keep people safe.
Last week PC Mills and Love from the Shettleston Community Policing Team attended a call regarding a male suspect breaking into motor vehicles on Crail Street and Tennyson Drive. Although both officers were on the scene very quickly the suspect had already made off prior to their arrival. The officers carried out local enquiries and utilising their local knowledge and a very good description of the suspect they were able to identify the culprit. Due to the quick actions taken by the officers in requesting and being granted a Justice of the Peace
search Warrant, the suspect’s home address was searched and stolen tools were recovered to the value of £1000. The suspect was thereafter detained for interview and later charged for both incidents and held custody for court. Although this male has now been remanded in custody the community should remain vigilant with their property to restrict criminal opportunities. The high profile policing patrols will continue to provide reassurance to everyone in the community.

Male arrested in possession of Knife While on uniform mobile patrol Pc Shivas and Hendry were within Lamlash Cresent when they observed a male acting suspiciously and trying to conceal something within the waistband of his trousers. As the officers approached the male, they observed him to turn away from them and throw something onto the road. Whilst speaking to the suspect, one of the officers recovered a kitchen knife with a 6” blade that had been thrown across the road. The male made admissions that he had been concealing this weapon within the waistband of his trousers. He was then conveyed to London Road
where he was detained for court the next day. Carrying dangerous weapons like this more often than not leads to people in the community being killed or scarred for life. Families are left to pick up the pieces and have to deal with these tragic circumstances, coping with the loss of a son or daughter, brother or sister, father or mother. During Operation Neptune Police Officers in B’ Division carried out more stop searches than ever before, targeting the criminals that cause most harm to our communities, in an attempt to catch the criminals who
Drugged up Dealer Caught While on uniform mobile patrol Pc Pitsos and Ryan were within Ruchazie Road when they observed a male placing items in his sock. On approaching the male he appeared to be very unsteady on his feet and his eyes were very glazed. A search was carried out on the male and several bags of what
appeared to be controlled substances were found in his left sock. This male was detained and taken to a police office for a more detailed search. The items that were found in his possession were tested and identified to be Diazepam and Cannabis resin. This male has been reported for these offences.

Delighted West Manager Kenny McLennan said: “The effort the team put in for the second half paid off.” Meanwhile, in an earlier noon Under-15 final at same indoor venue, SYFA Central Region crushed East Region 3-0.
