New Ron Davey Enterprise Centre Opened in North Glasgow • Saturday 15 September 2012 • 12 noon – 4pm • Firhill Sports Complex (off Maryhill Road) Free event for all the family. Come and join the fun!

Queens Cross Housing Association, 45 Firhill Road, Glasgow G20 7BE

A “great asset for the local community” is how Patricia Ferguson MSP described the brand new Ron Davey Enterprise Centre at its official opening last week in North Glasgow. Formerly office accommodation the space has been transformed into a sleek new Enterprise Centre named after the late Ron Davey who served as a local councillor for Springburn for almost 20 years. Patricia Ferguson MSP for Springburn and Maryhill said: “This is a first class centre for people in North Glasgow to come and learn new skills. I’ve already seen at first hand the dedication and hard work of the young people from Springburn Academy on the Event Management Programme run here so I know it will be a great asset for the local community. NG Homes has always put the benefit of the community at the forefront of their activities and this enterprise centre is yet another great example of that” Paul Martin MSP also attended the launch and paid tribute to Ron Davey when he said: “I knew

Ron and considered him a personal friend. When I was a young councillor it was Ron that showed me the ropes and he was a first

class elected member. It’s fitting that this enterprise centre should be named after him as this is intended to be a place where local

people can meet, develop ideas and gain new skills, he would have been all for that.” Continued on page 2

New Ron Davey Enterprise Centre Opened in North Glasgow Continued from front page. It’s envisaged the centre can be used for exhibitions, public meetings and local learning programmes. The Centre provides a quality multipurpose space which encompasses a boardroom entitled the Michael Martin Suite that can accommodate 24 people in comfort. It has already seen 30 local people sign up and take part in training courses on subjects as diverse as Event Management, Community Development and Basic Life Skills. The new centre is intended for use by local people and the wider North Glasgow community, something which Pat Kenna, Chairperson of NG Homes is delighted to see: “I’m very proud of the enterprise

centre in Vulcan Street. This is a fantastic facility where people of all ages can come and learn new skills that can boost their job prospects and ultimately change their lives”. NG Homes CEO Robert

Tamburrini said: “We want this enterprise centre to be a place where people who live and work in North Glasgow can visit and learn in North Glasgow. We want our partners to be able to exchange ideas here and work together - all for the benefit of the North Glasgow community”. Michael Martin who unfortunately couldn’t attend the opening of the enterprise centre congratulated NG homes in naming the centre after Councillor Ron Davey who was his Parliamentary Agent for three successive terms and a good friend. The board room in the centre has been named the Michael Martin Suite.

Although your ruling sign is going xxxx backwards, lady luck is still with you this week, you just have to remember to keep it simple and honest, no story telling or it could bite you on the bum next time around, it seems as if destiny is helping you move forward and you are being projected into new height, enjoy!

At last the secrecy of your emotions is about to be unleashed as you can now pinpoint what you want from long term relationships including the one with yourself. There are choices coming to do with work and Jupiter brings luck in a business relationship, just remember to dot the i’s and cross the t’s as we don’t want poor communication to hinder either of these events!

It xxmay have seemed difficult of late as if you’re on a treadmill but with the combinational effect of the Moon and Mars this week things are beginning to look up.

Your mind is in the clouds so it is important that you keep to reality and make decisions on facts. Some of you are ready and indeed in need of a welcomed break.

Top one half of the buns with the lettuce, tomato and onion. Add the burgers, and then top with the roll tops. 7. Serve with salad and wedges and pickles on the side.

Fresh Raspberry and Yoghurt Ice 300g prepared fresh raspberries 4 tbsp pale runny honey 500g carton low fat natural yogurt 25g toasted flaked almonds Fresh mint to decorate 1. Place a nylon sieve over a mixing bowl and push the raspberries through using a wooden spoon to remove the seeds and make a thick pulp. 2. Blend in the honey and stir in the yogurt. 3. If you have an ice cream maker, churn the mixture according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Alternatively, pour the mixture into a freezer container and place in the freezer for 1-1 ½ hr or until beginning to freeze round the edge of the container. 4. Scrape the frozen mixture from the edge and beat into the mixture to break up the ice crystals. Return to the freezer for a further 1hr and repeat the scraping and beating. 5. Return to the freezer and freeze for 1 ½ hr until thick and slushy. Mix again and put back in the freezer for up to 2hr. 5. To serve, beat the mixture again and then using a small ice cream scoop, scoop small the softly frozen mixture into serving dishes. Sprinkle with a few toasted flaked almonds and decorate with mint. Serve immediately.

Working in Partnership to create a safer Community Strathclyde Police along with ng homes are certainly making a vast difference in Possilpark thanks to a new initiative launched recently. The initative called “Safer Possil” involves all aspects of the community and local tenants are reaping the benefits as not only do they have an increased Police presence but also a group of people with whom they can work together with as they all get involved as ng homes carry out their promise to make Possil a place to be proud of. The 14-week campaign follows similar initiatives in Wyndford and the Glenavon tower blocks, which led to an 82% drop in incidences of violent crime. Similar campaigns have already taken place in the East End. Chief Inspector Ann Hughes, of Maryhill police office, said: “What we are trying to do is build a safer community but we need the support of other people. “What is also important is making sure the working practices are in place when the initiative ends.” This is where the staff at ng homes come to the fore

130 years of experience at new-look store AFTER a combined 130 years serving Bishopbriggs shoppers, long serving colleagues at Asda are taking centre stage as they officially unveiled the stores new look. The refreshed store was officially re-launched by Liz Hannah, one of the store’s longest serving colleagues, and the Provost, Una Walker. Other long serving colleagues Anne Mccaughey, Carla Hunter, Elizabeth Allingham and Jean Houston who have a combined 130 years’

service, have also been invited to a special lunch to mark their achievements. They were part of over 700 dedicated Asda colleagues celebrating a mammoth 15,000 years’ service with the supermarket at Asda’s “Big Anniversary” celebration at Doncaster Racecourse on July 24, an annual event that recognises colleagues with 25, 30, 35 and even 40 years’ service with the business.

as they involve local tenants in the various initiatives they continue to introduce as they seek to improve the lives of their residents. During the period the initiative has been in operation ng homes staff have been involved with numerous events including, Free Summer football camps with coaching from

Falkirk and Partick Thistle and these have been very well attended throughout the holiday period. Making a Difference Roadshows – a chance to meet staff from all ng homes teams plus Police and Fire officers, members of Scotcash, the Credit Union team, Young Scot, GCC Community Action Team and staff from ng2. Possilpark Gala Day is planned for this week-end (11th August) and it promises to be fantastic with loads of surprises including “The Fat Lady Board” and all this week there has been events taking place all throughout Possil including the Piece n Play and a Possil Beach to rival Tenerife (well we can all dream can’t we?) Once again we are grateful to ng homes as they continue to work to the best of their ability to ensure a better community throughout.

£7M CONTRACTS TO BENEFIT TENANTS Three-year contracts will provide local employment boost and cement partnership between City Building and ng homes

Over 3,000 north Glasgow Homes set to benefit

Building a sustainable future City Building is one of Scotland’s largest construction companies. We deliver construction, repairs and maintenance solutions to commercial, public and third sector organisations across the country. Our success is due to our forward-thinking approach and looking for ways to deliver services differently. We run Scotland’s largest - and most successful apprentice training centres in Glasgow.

Winner of Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Sustainable Development 2012

LEADING Scottish construction firm City Building has won two contracts worth a combined £7m to repair and maintain 3,000 properties owned by ng homes. The contracts will provide a full repair and maintenance, and gas inspection and maintenance service to the Award Winning Housing Associations’ properties in the North of the City for the next three years and will build on the existing relationship between ng homes and City Building. The two companies share the same social ethos for the provision of employment and training opportunities and the award of this contract will facilitate work placements and apprenticeships for the residents of the Housing Association and the local area. These will provide an opportunity to experience the construction industry through on-

site training programmes and to gain experience of a real working environment. City Building will begin work on 1 August 2012. Both contracts will run for three years. ng homes (formerly NGHA) was formed for the benefit of the community in 1976 to prevent further decline in the area and start building a new future. Its governing body comprises local people to serve the best interests of the community. Robert Tamburrini, CEO of ng homes, said: “We chose City Building because they offer a consistently high level of service. In addition, these contracts will provide real employment benefits for the local community.” City Building is Glasgow City Council’s arm’s-length construction company. With turnover of around £200 million, it is the largest repairs and maintenance con-

tractor in Scotland carrying out more than 500,000 repairs every year. A recent recipient of the Queen’s Award for Sustainable Development, City Building trains more than 450 apprentices each year with skills such as painting and decorating, joinery, plumbing, electrical, roofing and construction operations. Cllr Paul Carey, chair of City Building, said: “We are delighted to be signing these three-year contracts with ng homes which cements our strong working relationship. This contract also gives us the chance to make a positive contribution to the economy in the north of the city.” Dr. Graham Paterson, Executive Director of City Building, added: “Our partnership with ng homes is an excellent example of added value through commitment to community benefits in procurement.

It will be at the forefront of implementing change through recycling and reuse, energy saving, food growing and in the process will change attitudes and behaviours to create a lasting legacy. Stewart Stevenson, Minister for Environment and

Climate Change, praised ng homes and 20 other communities across the country that received grants for their support of Scotland’s ambitions to reduce carbon emissions. The 21 groups will share £2.9million for the next three years through the Climate Challenge Fund (CCF). The CCF helps communities across Scotland to reduce

their carbon footprint, supporting a low carbon lifestyle, contributing to Scotland reaching its ambitious climate change target of reducing carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050. Mr Stevenson said: “Climate change is one of the most serious threats we face as a global community and Scotland is leading the way in tackling the problem.

“Importantly Scottish communities are playing their part, taking action to reduce their carbon footprint with support from our Climate Challenge Fund. Across the country, a further 21 exciting new projects will receive £2.9 million support, empowering more communities to realise their carbon saving potential. “CCF has captured the imagination of

our communities, producing many innovative ideas and projects to change behaviours and drive down emissions. And that commitment from local communities – to tackle climate change from the grass-roots up - is essential if we are to succeed in delivering Scotland’s world leading and ambitious climate change targets.

£130,000 BENEFITS BOOST FOR TENANTS IN FIRST THREE MONTHS OF 2012 (And last year it was a massive half a million pounds) TENANTS in Maryhill and Ruchill have received a bumper benefits boost thanks to a leading city housing association. Maryhill Housing Association has helped its tenants obtain a remarkable £130,390 in State benefits to which they were entitled in the first three months of this year. The amount was achieved thanks to the Association’s Welfare Rights Service set up to help people claim what is rightfully theirs and is provided free of charge. The figures cover the most recent period available and are expected to increase as a number of claims are still outstanding. Housing Benefit claims along with backdated claims for this benefit came to nearly £60,000 of the total. Even more incredibly, the total obtained for tenants in

the last financial year (April 11 to March 2012) is over HALF A MILLION POUNDS at £517,710. The Association has hailed the service as a “real helping hand” and proved that community-based housing associations like Maryhill do much more than simply collect the rent. In many cases individuals did not know that they were entitled to such benefits as Carers’ Allowance, Jobseekers’ Allowance, Pension Credit and Disability Living Allowance. Willy Briody, Chief Executive of Maryhill Housing Association, said: “These remarkable figures show that a significant number of our tenants have not been been claiming a range of benefits to which they are entitled. “Our Welfare Rights Service was set up to help people make such claims and we are

delighted with the amount of money we have been able to obtain for them. A dedicated team of staff has been working hard on this issue. “There is very clear evidence that people will not make claims for benefit due to the perception that the process is complex and that claims will be unsuccessful. These figures prove that in many cases this is not the case and that is where we have been providing assistance. “The role of Maryhill Housing Association is to ensure people have good homes and to be a good landlord but we do much more than that. Our Welfare Rights Service shows that we are actively helping people in the Maryhill and Ruchill communities.” The Association says it will continue to encourage tenants to make use of its Welfare Rights Service.

Youth Disorder/ Gangfighting

In response to the gang fighting in the Ruchill area, CCTV viewed resulted in 7 arrests being made. Reports sent to the Procurator Fiscal.

Suicidal Male

At Luggie Aquaduct, Kirkintilloch, a 19 year old male climbed the fence in an attempt to end his life by jumping from a height of approximately 40 feet on to a concrete surface below. PC’s James Kennedy and Garry Campbell were first on the scene. PC James Kennedy struck a rapport with the male, persuading him not to jump and to cooperate with the Fire Service during his rescue.

Suspicious Males

Two males were arrested after a report of suspicious behaviour around wheelie bins of Shuna Street, Maryhill Officers, PC’s O’Donnell and Orr observed both males nearby as matching the descriptions passed by the witnesses to PCs McMillan and McFarlane.

Drugs Recovery

Due to the vigilance of DC Andy Shields, CID Maryhill, 81 Cannabis plants with a value of £41,000 were recovered from an address in Dorchester Avenue. After detecting the smell of the cannabis, a search warrant was obtained resulting in this drug seizure. A male was arrested and held custody to appear at court.

Intelligence Led Policing

Following a tip off relating to the storage of controlled drugs in the Springburn area, Baird Streets sub Divisional pro active officers acted swiftly to obtain a warrant to search the premises. After gaining entry they found two males and a female within and during the course of the search discovered class A controlled drugs with a street value of over 700,000 pounds as well as a magazine and ammunition for a firearm. All person within were held in custody and both males were remanded as a result.

Offensive Weapons

Whilst on patrol, PCs Davie Dundas and Holly Canning had cause to stop

2 males riding bikes on Maryhill Road. One of the males became hostile towards the officers whilst the other made off on foot. The hostile male was arrested and found to conceal a baseball bat in their tracksuit trouser leg. The 2nd male was arrested soon thereafter and also found to conceal a baseball bat down their trouser leg. Both males have been reported to the Procurator Fiscal.

Theft of metal

On 23rd July, PCs Newbigging and Irvine observed a male placing a large metal drum into the rear of a white Ford Transit van near to Auchinairn Road, before entering the passenger side of the van as the driver drove off. Suspecting the metal drum to be stolen, officers stopped the Ford Transit van. The males were informed that the Ford Transit van was to be searched. A large quantity of scrap metal was found in the rear of the Transit van, when required to do so, neither male was in possession of a Metal Dealers Licence. Both males were detained and later arrested and reported to the Procurator Fiscal.

Drugs Recovery – Balgrayhill, 3 Arrested

Drugs worth an estimated street value of nearly three quarters of million pounds have been seized by police in Springburn. Around 8.00pm, officers from Baird Street Police Office acting under warrant entered a property in Viewpoint Place, Balgrayhill, and seized a quantity of drugs, which included heroin, cocaine and cannabis. The drugs are believed to be worth in excess of £704,000. Two men aged 26 and 28, and a woman aged 33, have been arrested in connection with the seizure. Chief Inspector Simon Midgley said “This is a significant seizure and shows how resolute our determination is to rid our communities of serious and organised crime. This remains a high priority for us and we will continue to keep people safe by targeting those who are involved in the supply of illegal drugs. “I would ask the public to continue to report any suspicious behaviour to their local police office or contact CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 if they prefer to give their information confidentially.”

BEAT THE HEAT BY KEEPING YOUR HOME COOL AND GREEN WHEN those sticky-steamy days of summer heat up, it’s such a relief to crank up the air conditioning and enjoy. But did you realize that half of all the energy that your home is sucking up right now is tied directly to cooling it down? That can be tough on the environment and your bank account. So here are a few crunchy ideas that will keep you cool and save you some money!

Run those fans Yes, fans use electricity too. But running them properly can actually take some pressure off your air conditioning. For ceiling fans, make sure it’s rotating in a counter clockwise motion. When your fan goes counter clockwise, it produces a breeze and allows all that cool air from your air conditioning to circulate. Efficient use of ceiling fans could allow you to raise your thermostats four degrees.

Sunblock for your home Pull those shades, draw the curtains and close the blinds! Don’t let the sunlight heat your home, especially when you’re not even there. This is perfect for those of you who spend most of your day at work or school. If you

Give your appliances a break Your stove and dryer put out a lot of heat. So use them in the early morning or evening hours when it’s cooler. Better yet, make use of your outdoor grill. Or airdry a few of your heavier items -- like jeans and blankets. No energy used. More money in your pocket!

Keep your cool Never underestimate a cold glass of water, ice cream or one of those multi-colored ice pops we all have in our freezers this time of year. They really do help keep your body temperature down, which means you don’t need to blast the air conditiong.

Put your air conditioning in holiday mode When you leave for a holiday, set your thermostat a few degrees higher. Simply, it’s a waste of money and energy to air condition an empty house.

Ways To Save Electricity 1. Turn off your television, video, hifi, playstation, and other entertainment devices when they are not being used. 2. Do not leave your television etc in standby mode. Devices can use up to 90% as much power in standby mode as when they are on, so it is a serious waste of energy when a device is left constantly on standby. 3. Cook many items at the same time when your electric oven is hot.

5. Fold clothes straight out of the tumble drier while they are still warm to save on ironing. 6. Do not put uncovered liquids into the fridge. Their evaporation will make the fridge have to work harder. 7. Don’t keep opening the oven door. Every time you do so, your oven loses 20°C of heat. 8. Boil water in a kettle rather than on a hob to save 50-70% of the energy and to get your water boiled faster. 9. Don’t preheat the oven for roasting. 10. Defrost frozen food in the fridge since this helps to cool the fridge.

keep your shades pulled, then by the time you return home in the evening, the air will be nice and cool -- and you did it without putting extra pressure on your cooling system.

4. Use a microwave to reheat food or to cook small portions. Although a microwave uses a lot of power, it does so over a very short time and so saves energy overall.

Vinegar Tips 1. Clean your microwave by placing a bowl made up of equal parts white vinegar and water inside. Cook on high for around 3mins. It will take away niffy food smells and strangely also makes it easier to clean. 2. Stop ants coming into your property by spraying white vinegar around doors and windows (outside). 3. Cut the amount of washing powder you use in half by adding around 175ml of white vinegar to your washing machine drum. 4. Add two tablespoons of white vinegar to the rinse when handwashing your tights. It should make them last longer. 5. Soak a cloth in white vinegar then drape over taps to remove white hard water stains. 6. Clean wooden chopping boards by wiping first with hot water and then with white vinegar. 7. Make up a spray cleaner by adding 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water to a spray bottle. Use in both kitchen and bathroom to clean mirrors, counter tops, sinks, baths, showers, toilets and floors. 8. Clean windows with white vinegar, buff with newspaper. 9. Add a glug of white vinegar into the fabric softener slot of your washing machine for fluffy, soft towels or blankets. 10. De-scale your kettle by filling with vinegar, boiling and then doing the same with water. Rinse well.

Parliamentary Patter Willie Bain MP

One of the big questions voters ask themselves at every election is – am I better off now than I was five years ago? Sadly for millions of ordinary people by 2015 and the date of the next UK General Election the answer is on track to be a resounding no. This week the Office for National Statistics published figures revealing what tens of thousands already know from their own daily experiences: living standards are facing their biggest squeeze for 90 years, with a toxic combination of tax hikes, wage cuts, and the effects of George Osborne’s utterly disastrous austerity cuts programme. Over the first three months of 2012, real wages fell by 0.6% on the last quarter of 2011, and overall have slumped by 3% since David Cameron became Prime Minister, a rate of decline last seen in the 1970s. In terms of overall incomes in Scotland, the Coalition’s record is wretched – median incomes fell by 6% in their first year in office, a decline

not seen since the dying days of the previous Tory Government in 1995/6. Yet while it’s struggling make the pay cheque stretch to the last week of the month for the majority, party time continues unabated for those at the top. Euromonitor International predicts inequality will have risen at its fastest rate for a generation by 2015, with average household disposable income having fallen by 2.6%, with the poorest tenth of people seeing their incomes fall by 7.8%, and only the wealthiest ten per cent enjoying a rise - of 1% by 2015 compared with May 2010. Danny Dorling says inequality in parts of Britain is rising more quickly than at any time since the Second World War. As the US economist Joseph Stiglitz writes in his new book, The Price of Inequality, the counter-cultural war being waged by the global political right is to divide the working poor from the unemployed, rather than to deal with the shocking wealth grab

by the super-rich of the wealthiest 1%, who now own 14% of all assets in the UK. Disgracefully, as Scope pointed out this week, 46% of disabled people feel more anxious about abuse from the rest of the community because of Tory-inspired campaigns inveighing against so-called scroungers on sickness and disability payments, despite the facts showing just 0.5% of claims for Disability Living Allowance are fraudulent. The ONS figures also reveal that benefits and the tax system are taking up four times more of the burden on maintaining overall incomes than six months ago, but this was prior to the destructive cuts in working tax credits which took effect in April, slashing the incomes of 220,000 people working less than 24 hours per week in Scotland, and 2million people across the UK, by up to £4,000 a year. A North Glasgow constituent working 20 hours per week recently told me her employer couldn’t give her extra hours because business was so bad, so she lost her working tax credit support,

Patricia Ferguson MSP One of the many good things about the Scottish Parliament is that it gives individual members the opportunity to introduce legislation on issues that they believe to be important. Often MSPs react to problems that constituents bring to them and introduce legislation which they hope will help to resolve problems or make life better for people with specific

issues. It also means that we don’t have to wait for the Scottish Government to act but can press on with legislation ourselves. In the last session of Parliament I introduced the Property Factors (Scotland) Bill which became an Act in 2011. At the beginning of the month a Code of Conduct for Property Factor’s was introduced. Since being elected I have been

Bob Doris MSP I hope readers are having an enjoyable summer - if not, so far, a very sunny one. The parliamentary recess allows me to engage with local groups that I don’t always get the chance to meet. There are too many to list, but I should give a mention to Hawthorn Bowling Club, who have a fairly new board and are taking the club forward. Like other local sport clubs, they provide an important social benefit to the wider community. Speaking of which, it has been

a joy to watch the wonderful sporting success of Team GB, including the success of a number of Scots: most prominently Andy Murray and Chris Hoy, but also Glasgow’s own Michael Jamieson, who took silver in the 200m breaststroke. As someone who passionately believes in an independent Scotland, I congratulate not just the Scottish medal winners, but the rest of Team GB also. You will have noticed some have sought to make political gain from the Olympics. My feeling is that this devalues

Paul Martin MSP The daylight robbery of hospital car parking charges is a problem that still faces patients, staff and visitors everyday in my constituency. At Glasgow Royal Infirmary we still have a situation where a private company is making large amounts of money despite the Scottish Government’s promise to end these charges as far back as 2007. When visiting a family member or friend in hospital, the most important concern is for

and was being forced to sell her excouncil house property as a result. 70% of the pain from April’s tax credit cuts like these is being suffered by people on the lower half of the income bracket. Small wonder with economic demand at rock bottom even before the spring, the Child Poverty Action Group has cited this £3.1bn economic depth charge from the submarine Chancellor as a major reason for the poor GDP figures published in the last week in July. It’s not just collapsing living standards that are stranding us in the slowest climb out of a slump since the 1870s – it’s persistently high unemployment, and the growing level of under-employment, too. At the equivalent period in previous recessions there were substantial levels of job creation, but in Scotland, latest figures show youth unemployment at 21% or 86,000, with a further one in five of those in part-time work desperate for full-time jobs – some 30,000 young people. If permanent damage to the economy, and to the long-term

prospects of young people, is to be avoided, the Chancellor must follow the crescendo of advice he’s receiving – and not just from the left. Even global big business, the CBI, and the International Monetary Fund – hardly a cell of socialist revolutionaries – are worried at the lack of demand in the economy, the depression in the construction sector, slumping manufacturing output, and a worsening doubledip recession shared only with Italy among G20 nations. Reversing the tax credit cuts, introducing a living wage for all workers, cutting VAT, and increasing capital spending for a major house building programme would all provide a boost to growth now. In the longer term, restoring the link between a growing economy, and real wages is the biggest challenge we face, and we need an active trade union movement to help in this task. As the Resolution Foundation have discovered, in the three decades from 1977 the share of growth going in wages to people in the lower half of the income scale fell from 33p in every £1 of GDP generated

contacted by many people who have experienced problems with their factor. I very much hope that this Code of Conduct and the other provisions of the Act which come into force on the 1st October will make a difference to all of those people who, until now, have had no where to turn when problems arise. Also this month, my colleague Mark Griffin who represents Central Scotland in Parliament introduced a proposal for a bill

which would require the Scotlack of understanding of their tish Government to do more to language and I believe that support people who use sign Mark Griffin’s Bill will help to language. British Sign Lanpromote British Sign Language guage is a language in its own and break down some of those right and has been officially barriers for those who use it.

the achievement of our athletes, whose sporting success should be enjoyed in its own right. Just appearing at the games is a huge achievement, so I also pay tribute to those athletes from across the world who have taken part but have not won medals. One of the most memorable moments so far, for me, was the Jamaican 1-2 in the men’s 100m, led by Usain Bolt. A fitting way for the Jamaican nation to celebrate 50 years of independence! Sometimes good news stories get lost during the media focus on our summer of sport, but despite the UK government’s ongoing mishandling of the economy,

there is positive progress being made in many areas which are already devolved to the Scottish Parliament. The health service is a good example of this: hospitalacquired infections in Scottish hospitals tumbled in the last year, and the building of the new £850m Southern General Hospital continues apace. Compare that to NHS hospitals in England, which are having administrators called in due to their use of the profiteering Private Finance Initiative. We see progress across a number of Scottish-controlled areas: in policing, we have seized more cash from gangsters under the

the wellbeing of the patient. Having to worry about how long someone can visit for, or whether or not a doctor or nurse will have the opportunity to move their car during a 12 hour shift to avoid a parking fine means that these charges have a negative effect on how our hospital operates. At the minute, staff need to pay £90 per month just to park at their work. Visitors are expected to pay £1.30 per hour plus hidden debit and credit card charges. Some patients have even said to their family that they should not bother about visiting to avoid the stress of these unfair charges.

Late night transport to GRI is not great and is not always useful for shift workers too. Unfortunately the private company running the car park has no sympathy and it is time the health board put pressure on the company to play fair on car parking charges. In the last parliament, I brought forward a Member’s Bill that would have solved this problem once and for all by getting rid of parking fees on NHS sites. The lack of cross party support was disappointing and even although I was unsuccessful but I remain committed to standing up for NHS workers, hospital visitors and most importantly patients in their fight against car parking charges at Glasgow

The junior scene was a breeding ground for the senior game in those days and many players made the transition to the senior ranks, nowadays as far as many fans are concerned the Big Boys have lost their way and the juniors remain unsullied.

ASHFIELD ended the 2011-12 season as Winners of the Cup winners Cup after defeating a strong Irvine Meadow side but that certainly does not sum up the ‘Field’s season as Stevie Rankin’s squad confounded those who had tipped them to be relegated at the start of the season. Ashfield are one of the most famous clubs in junior football and the squad beginning this on-coming season realise this and the players are determined to make their own piece of history at such an illustrious club. Ashfield are one of the oldest Scottish Junior Football Clubs in Scotland, established in 1886 and are the first Junior Team to win 100 Trophies.
