husband, brother etc... will never be coming home again. Violent crimes, serious assaults and complaints of youth disorder figures, have also shown a tremendous dip within the whole area and that has to be applauded. Statistics are all right to look at over the period but it is the incentives that the police are introducing that are making the big differences these coupled with a more management driven leadership have combined to reflect the results now being achieved. Many people reading this will be saying, “That’s not our area they are speaking about, as we still have problems”, of course this is very true but Strathclyde Police are continuing to work on these problems and according to Chief Superintendant Mawson inroads are being made on a daily basis. He told our reporter, “

We have a number of operations planned in the forthcoming months including, addressing AntiSocial behaviour, Violent crime and Drug Crime and make no mistake we will be relentless in addressing these issues. We will also continue to focus on alcohol related crime, youth disorder, violence and other issues we realise the community is concerned about. Another initiative that is producing results and causing havoc within the criminal fraternity is the seizure of assets from criminal activities and local projects are beginning to benefit from the cash recovered from these results”. School Campus officers have been deployed at various schools in the area and this initiative is working very well in both an educational and public relations exercise and this coupled with extra patrols,

police off road motor cycles, plain clothed and uniformed officers have made a big impact on the gang fighting culture. The Gang Reduction Initiative Programme (GRIP) plus a specially produced DVD for use at schools are both working towards reducing violence but as normal the police are also depending on calls from members of the public to alert them to youths causing disturbances. All it takes is a telephone

call and the police will react to these situations. Since the re-organising of the police force in 2010 Strathclyde Police have produced excellent results and with these latest set of figures they continue to do so. The great thing is, Chief Superintendant Mawson and his troops will not let complacency set in but will continue to serve and protect the residents of this area to the best of their abilities.

EAST END CRIME FIGURES PLUMMET FOLLOWING a meeting between Strathclyde Police Divisional Commander Wayne Mawson and the Re-Gen earlier this week to review the crime statistics within the East End we were very pleasantly surprised to learn that serious crime figures in our area have been drastically cut. Although these figures are a vast improvement on past years Chief Superintendant Mawson stressed to us that the force is totally committed on reducing them even more. Looking at Murders and Attempted Murders in “B Division” which takes in the East End area, these have dropped by an amazing 45.8% from 83 to 45 which in real terms are people’s lives we are speaking about here. This means less families in the area are experiencing that dreaded knock on the door with officers bearing the news that their, son,

Maureen Burke joined Lizzie’s family at a wee pre-birthday party earlier this week (so that we could include Lizzie in this week’s paper). Lizzie looks as though she could be with us for another 100 years given her health and her great outlook on life. This is one girl who certainly deserves her new “Page Three Status”. Many Happy Returns Lizzie from everyone at the Re-Gen.

Sizzling Suzie’s Summer Spreads This week I have created a fantastic Greek menu. Lots of flavours to bring back memories of white sandy beaches and sunset meals in the local taverna. You will be surprised at just how easy it is to cook and how simple the flavours really are. Most of the ingredients are things you will already have in your larders. All you need is a bottle of Ouzo or retsina wine to transport you back to Greece.



• 1 Cup of long grain white rice • 2 tbsp Olive oil • 1 large clove of garlic crushed • 1 tbsp dried thyme • 1 finely diced onion • 1 fresh lemon or 3 tbsp lemon juice • 2 cups of boiling water Fry the onion and garlic in the olive oil. Add the rice, lemon juice and thyme fry for 2 min stirring continuously. Add the boiling water, reduce the heat and cover pan with a lid and simmer for 10-15 min until rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed. Leave to stand for a few min before serving.


• Lettuce • Tomatoes • Cucumber • Onions • Black olives • Feta cheese • Olive oil • Lemon juice • Salt and Pepper

Roughly chop all ingredients to the same size .drizzle with the olive oil and squeeze the juice of a whole lemon on it. Season well and toss before serving. ** calorie counters omit the cheese.

~ KLEFTIKO (Roast Lamb) ~ • 1 boned shoulder of lamb • 1 cup of olive oil • 3- 4 finely sliced cloves of garlic • 1 lemon • Bunch of fresh rosemary • Salt and Pepper Heat the oven to 220c. Pour some of the olive oil in a large pan and brown the meat on all sides. Put meat in a heavy lidded casserole dish and make some slits in the meat with a sharp knife and insert the garlic slices. Srinkle with the lemon juice and herbs, season and cover. Roast in the oven for about 20-25 min. Reduce the heat of the oven to around 180c and continue to cook for around 30 min per pound. Once meat is cooked remove from oven and let stand for 15-20 min before carving. Serve with rice and salad or you could roast some potatoes.

~ BAKED FIGS WITH HONEY AND GREEK YOGHURT ~ • Allow 2 fresh figs per person • Lemon juice • Large tub of natural Greek yoghurt • Jar of honey Quarter each fig without cutting the whole way through, and fan out a little. Place figs in a roasting dish , sprinkle with a little lemon juice and roast I n a hot oven for 10-15 min. Top with the yoghurt and drizzle with the honey to serve.

Strawberries and Cream from a Terrific Team The Staff and Pupils at Mount Vernon Primary School held a special assembly recently to present a magnificent cheque to Breast Cancer Care following a couple of tremendous ideas of raising money for this great cause. Pupils from the school held, amongst other things, a Strawberry Tea event which went down well and the staff entered the Ignis Asset Management 10K road race and were sponsored by Parents Friends and Relatives, enabling both events to raise the grand total of £4,309.73p The Cheque was presented to Christine Turkington of the Breast Cancer Care Charity at the school assembly last week. One of

the teachers at the school is unwell at the moment and the school wanted to show their support by raising funds for this important charity. Along with teachers Alison Barr and Laura McAra and support assistant Ann Marie Sharp, the young people carefully planned a full morning of “Pink Activity” guaranteed to raise as much money as possible. They approached many local businesses and were taken aback by the response. Frankie and Benny’s in the Fort at Easterhouse agreed to sponsor a Strawberry Tea and supplied strawberries

and cream for 200 people as well as balloons, raffle prizes and of course their own personal time to help out. There were also stalls and games at the event with many taking part in either “Hook a Duck” or “Beat the Goalie”, getting their faces painted and hair sprayed and the culmination was a balloon release. The whole event was a tremendous success and raised £3,100 while the staff running team raised over £1000.00. All in all this was a fantastic way the school supported one of their own whilst raising much needed funds for the Charity. Well Done Everyone involved in this great initiative.

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.”

Views Sought on how Offenders can The Hidden face Payback for their Crimes of Jim Nelson GLASGOW is being asked on how offenders should be put to work to payback communities affected by crime. Last year 174,000 hours of unpaid work was ordered to be undertaken by offenders who had been sentenced to a Community Payback Order in Glasgow. Work included shovelling snow, clearing parks of litter, repairing community facilities as well assisting individuals and groups. But to ensure the greatest possible reparation for the harm caused by crime, Glasgow’s Community Justice Authority wants to hear suggestions from groups and individuals across the city on where unpaid work can make the biggest difference. The Authority has already set the ball rolling by holding a consultation event with sixty different community councils, faith groups and elected members, all of whom came forward with ideas on how can offenders can be best put to work. Bailie Elaine McDougall, Convenor of Glasgow’s Community Justice Authority, said the initial session had been very positive with many good suggestions being made,but so that public can see sentences are being served and that justice is being done, she believes it is vital as many groups and individuals offer their opinion on what work can be done through Community

Payback Orders. She told the Re-Gen, “The Community Payback Order, and in particular unpaid work, is there to help communities. It is a real sentence, a punishment, and staff within Social Work, alongside those organisations which supervise work in the community, make sure it is a sentence. They also work with the offender to use the sentence to address problems linked to their behaviour, to improve skills and where possible, improve employability, making it less likely that someone will reoffend.” “I am not complacent and so I am pleased to open a public consultation on unpaid work. We want to hear from as many groups as possible on how we use unpaid work in Glasgow to improve our communities while making sure offenders know they have served a sentence. The people of Glasgow should get involved and express their views.” One community organisation that makes extensive use of offenders is Glasgow Easterhouse Supporting Hands (GESH), which provides activities for disabled children and senior citizens among other things. Group chair Maureen Ferrie says GESH was able to refurbish its Garthamlock centre through people serving community sentences and they continue to contribute the

upkeep of the much used facility. Maureen said: “We just set them to work. There is no shortage of things to do around the centre. A lot of people use the centre and we have to make sure it is clean and tidy at all time. The people on community sentences really work and we keep them on their toes, that’s for sure. “But we also get folk like joiners and electricians coming to us as well and we always look to make use of their skills.” Working at the centre also has a positive impact on those who undertake their unpaid work with GESH. Ex-offender Michael is now a volunteer with Greater Easterhouse Supporting Hands after serving his sentence under Maureen’s direction. He said “I

have served time in prison and had other sentences, but this time, by working in my community, things were different. It was worrying at first, but then I got involved and saw the difference my work made. I felt proud and was treated with respect for my efforts. After my Community Payback Order finished, I continued volunteering and things are different in my life.” Community Payback Orders were introduced in February 2011 as part of the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010 and as a replacement for the traditional Community Service sentence. The CPO provides sentences with a range of options from which they can choose the most appropriate requirements. These include unpaid work or other activities, offender supervision requirement, compensation requirement, programme requirement, mental health treatment requirement, drug treatment requirement, alcohol requirement, residence requirement and conduct requirement. A sentence of unpaid work will be for between 20 and 300 hours and will need to be delivered within three to six months. In Glasgow sentenced offenders are managed by Glasgow City Council’s Social Work Services with unpaid work directly supervised by Glasgow Community and Safety Services, SACRO (Scottish Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders and GESH (Greater Easterhouse Supporting Hands). A proportion of offenders may also undertake unpaid work through individual placements, for instance helping out at lunch clubs or church groups, or in charity shops. Glasgow Criminal Justice Authority is one of eight similar authorities across Scotland and has the overall responsibility for planning, co-ordinating, monitoring and reporting on criminal justice services in the city. Glasgow CJA aims to reduce re-offending, improve the management of offenders and create safer communities. Views should be sent to the Community Justice Authority at.

Jim with his nine month beard CHAMPION fund-raiser Jim Nelson of Denmilne Street Easterhouse was on call again last week to raise cash for another worth-while charity as he had his beard shaved off yet again this time for the RNIB charity. Jim has, over the past 21 years, (as far as I can remember

Centre Manager Renia Tysler told our reporter, “ I always look forward to a phone call from Jim saying he is planning to get L&R Hair studio to remove his beard as I know yet another good cause is getting much needed cash for their funds.” Looking back the Re-Gen (and

Jim (Cleanshaven) with Barber Bob taking the first pic of him in the old Casbah in Lochend Road), been raising funds for countless charities throughout the East End of Glasgow. Many people know Jim yet for a part of the year they walk past him as they don’t recognise him without his trademark beard and this due to him being clean-shaven prior to beginning yet another fund –raising quest.

Long may you continue to help others, (and save on after-shave). Well done Jim Nelson.

Spooning in the Athlete’s Village

AS the Brickies, Joiners, Plumbers and Sparks toil away to get the houses ready for the influx of Athletes to the Commonwealth Games in 2014, they certainly need sustenance on a daily basis and thanks to Katrina Andrews they are getting, not only a hot meal but also their, five-a-day fruits on site. Katrina has just opened the new Spoon Cafe on site at the Springfield Road development which will cater for around 600 workers daily. Katrina had been unemployed for around 6 months prior to getting in tow with Unity Enterprises (a Glasgow based company which provides training,, work experience and employment

for young people with disabilities and other social disadvantages). Unity Enterprises were awarded the contract via the Glasgow City Council’s Business Portal which advertised the catering contract. Joining Katrina at the opening were Archie Graham(Executive Member for the Commonwealth Games) and Calum Murray of City Legacy who are overseeing the development in the Dalmarnock area. Councillor Graham told the Re-Gen, “ I am delighted that the Spoon Cafe will provide catering to the workers building the Athletes Village. This shows that all types of local individuals and organisations are sharing in the social and economic legacy


of the Games. We have always aimed to involve as many people, businesses and organisations in the Games because this way we can ensure the greatest benefit possible for the city.” Katrina was out of work for 6 months whilst looking after an infirm relative and she was delighted to get a chance with Unity Enterprises. She told the Re-Gen, “It’s great to be employed again and it’s really rewarding to support some of my colleagues with learning difficulties. I feel like Unity Enterprises has helped me and now it’s like I’m giving something back. I love coming to the Athletes Village every day and being involved in such an exciting project.”

Fuse Host Open Night SHETTLESTON based Fuse project recently hosted an Open Night in the premises within the former Sheiling Public House in Shettleston Road. Fuse Manager Gerry Baldwin (who has basically brought the project back to life), introduced the team from H4U with whom the kids at Fuse have been working closely with and they detailed everything they are jointly working on health-wise. Youth Worker Donna Sanderson then spoke about how she is interacting with Fuse on the Social Enterprise side and Denize McBride spoke






on the tremendous work the volunteers are doing with the project and the way more and more people are volunteering. There was then a presentation of awards ceremony where Councillor Frank McAveety handed out various awards including one for the club pool champion donated by Kenny Blythe. Gerry Baldwin then gave a synopsis of what the club was aiming to do in the next few months and he then handed over

to Liz McNeil (Chairperson of Fuse) who praised the work Gerry and the team

were doing and she told the audience she had high hopes that the club

would go from strength to strength under his leadership.

Summer Safety Tips for Kids

NOW that the school holidays have started many of our kids will discover a new “Freedom” which they have never experienced before. Unfortunately with this “Freedom” comes some dangers and what we want to do here is just to reinforce a few things that may help. 1) Water is a Magnet to children. Even if the kids can swim, Make sure they know about the dangers that potential swimming areas such as local ponds, rivers, quarries and the like, can hold for them and warn them against going to these places. 2) Old Buildings are Dangerous. In the East End there are still many old buildings and kids love to explore these. One it’s probably against the law to even be on the site (but try telling that to, 11, 12, 13 years) and two, these buildings can collapse at any time. Kids can get trapped inside these and often help is not at hand until it’s too late. If there are any old sites in your area Make sure you warn the children not to venture there.

3) Kids love to set off for picnics. On a warm hot sunny day kids love nothing more than making up sandwiches, getting a couple of bottles of ginger and setting out for a picnic. Nothing wrong with this as long as they been well warned about not talking to strangers, not getting into strange cars, not being compromised by any seemingly “Nice” men (or Women for that matter). If they feel they are being pressured into doing something they feel uncomfortable with then don’t be afraid to tell them to SCREAM their loudest and Run away to someone in authority. It may be something quite innocent but BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY. 4) Fountains Of Fun. Fire Hydrants are always a draw for kids and what amazes us is that “Parents” laugh and say what real problem are they causing by

A. S. SCAFFOLDING LTD Scotland’s Largest Independent Scaffolding Company

playing under the torrent of water cascading from the Hydrants. The Problems are, 1) Broken Bones as the force of the water is unbelievable and 2) The water is needed for emergencies which could happen right on your doorstep. How would you feel if a neighbour’s house caught fire and no water could be obtained due to the kids “Having Fun”. Put a STOP to this practice as soon as you realise it is happening, it could save a life. 5) Fields of Fire. Kids with Matches and Lighters sneaking a fly smoke can end up setting fire to dry grass as the summer sun dries out acres of farmland. Not only can children be trapped and panic the damage this can cause can be very costly. It can also cause accidents as the smoke billows across roads, drivers can’t see clearly and crashes can occur. So check to see if your kid has access to Lighters or Matches and once again let them know of the dangers. In Short BE A RESPONSIBLE PARENT. It is your duty to look after your children, not someone else’s.

If an accident occurs over the holiday period (and unfortunately they do) hopefully you have played your part in keeping our child safe. Don’t leave it too late and regret it for ever.

St Andrew’s Secondary School

Lochend Secondary School

North East Glasgow Youth Health Summits YOUNG people from third year classes in each Secondary school in North East took part in the recent School Health Summits Events during the month of June at Platform, The Bridge, Easterhouse. The events allowed third year pupils to present their action plan on how to deal with a specific health issue raised in their school report in the latest School Health & Well Being Survey. Each school presented their ideas to a group of representatives from health services, education, Glasgow Life, and Glasgow Housing Assocaition among others at a Dragons Den style event. Each school pitched their idea to the dragons to gain support to take the work forward in partnership in the new school year; this

support was monetary, staff support/time, or resources. Karen Gray, from the North East Sector Health Improvement Team of Glsgwo City Community Health Partnership was one of the dragons. She offered support to the pupils from All Saints Secondary School who wanted to raise awareness about the effects of second hand smoke. Other issues covered by schools included Exam stress by Bannerman High School, and Mental health by Lochend Secondary. All mainstream secondary schools within Glasgow city took part in the 2010 Health & Well Being Survey. This resulted in an area report and also school specific reports being generated and launched in December 2011. The aims of the 2010

Glasgow City Schools Health and Wellbeing Survey were to gather current demographic information on the pupil population (S1 - S4), gather trend data on key areas of health, and gain

Bannerman High School

an understanding to individual pupil perceptions of their health & wellbeing. The study primarily focused on health behaviours, personal factors and wider social and

environmental issues that influence the health, perceptions and wellbeing of young people in Glasgow. Using comparisons from the first health study carried out three years ago,

the new study, carried out in conjunction with the council and NHS Great Glasgow and Clyde, was used to form health summits in learning communities across the city.

GLASGOW East Rugby Club held their annual festival at Barrachnie recently and what a fantastic day it was as the weather held up to allow all games to be played. Eight teams from thoughout Scotland took part along with the home teams and some of the rugby played was tremendous as far as the kids and coaches were concerned. There were lots of things for the crowd to enjoy including a DJ, Tarot Card readings, Bouncy Castles and various rides for the kids. Those hungry enough were able to feast on the various offers from the Home baking stall, the Tuck Shop and of course the Hot and Cold food stall. The raffle went down well and overall it was a great wee fund-raising day and much thanks must go to

Glasgow East P4’s shake hands with their opponents after their successful win against Clydebank. Special mention goes to Sarah Swan (the only girl in the team) who scored her first try! Well done Sarah!

City puts on a show for Armed Forces Day Glasgow’s Armed Forces Day (AFD) celebrations took place in George Square last Satur-

day, and Lord Provost Sadie Docherty welcomed members of the Army, Navy, Royal Air Force and veterans and cadets from all three services as they paraded to mark the occasion. The parade began at Holland Street and followed a route along West Regent Street, West George Street and around George Square. The Lord Provost in her capacity as Lord Lieutenant took the salute at the march past. Following this there was a Typhoon fly past from No 6 Squadron RAF. This year’s council run event had an array of army action and activities including military vehicles and unarmed combat displays, an assault course, 30ft

climbing wall, Beat the Keeper challenges and much, much more. Performances from Glasgow’s very own Britain’s Got Talent finalist, Edward Reid; X Factor’s Holly Burns; That Swing Sensation featuring Claire Knight and the Kennedy Cup Cakes, as well as Pipe Bands and Choirs, kept crowds entertained. Lord Provost Docherty said: “Every year Glasgow puts on a great show for Armed Forces Day. The event allows us the opportunity to celebrate the

honour, pride and courage of those who have served in the military. “It’s always a pleasure to welcome the armed forces and their families to our city and to show our support. “This year we had a host of attractions and activities for all


the family to enjoy and it was a great day. I was delighted to see so many people from Glasgow and beyond come along on Saturday and show their support and appreciation and enjoy the day’s entertainment.”

Parkhead Housing Association’s 35th Birthday Gala Day Although the weather last Saturday was horrendous it certainly didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of those who attended the Parkhead Housing 35th Birthday Gala Day celebrations held in Helenvale Street. Chief Executive Jim Strang and his team laid on entertainment for the kids (and Adults) and judging by the amount of laughter emanating from the car-park

everyone seemed to enjoy it. Especially when Jim took on the role as a target for the “Wet Sponge” throwing championship. It seemed a few people had saved up their energy just for that alone and Jim ended up soaked (but he got his own back by chasing some people with a bucket of ice-cold water). Here are a selection of pics from the event.

Parliamentary Patter Paul Martin MSP

LAST week in Parliament I spoke in a debate about the cuts our colleges in Glasgow are facing because of the poor financial deal from the Scottish Government. Over 39,000 college places have been cut in the past year in Glasgow because of the shortfall in funding. That means 39,000 people will not now get the chance to train or learn skills that could help give them a chance of employment. Having good local colleges can deliver the training programmes that people need to get out of unemployment that is crucial to our communities.

The Glasgow Provan constituency I represent has been well served by both John Wheatley College and North Glasgow College and these colleges provide an excellent range of courses that provide flexible and practical learning. Many courses are designed to suit part time learning, people who work or have young families and also stepping stone courses that lead onto university and elsewhere. Glaswegians are facing the brunt of these cuts from a Scottish Government in Edinburgh that doesn’t care. At the minute there is no parity between

College students and University students. I believe that proper educational opportunity should be given to all of our students so that they have a genuine chance to improve their educational attainment and prosper in their local community. That is why the Scottish Government should stop the damaging college cuts to our Glasgow colleges. If you would like to speak to me about this or any other issue then do not hesitate to call my office on 0141 564 1364 or emailing me on paul. martin.msp@scottish.

Ruth Davidson MSP ALTHOUGH the schools have now stopped for the summer holidays, sadly the summer weather hasn’t started. I was very pleased to see such a large number of events taking place across Scotland to celebrate Armed Forces Day recently. The events give us the important opportunity to pay tribute to those serving men and women who have sacrificed so much on behalf of our country.

Some have given their lives or been injured in conflicts around the world, but there are others, too, who continue to endure hardships every day. It is important that we thank all those who wear the uniform and serve our country so bravely and Armed Forces Day is a great opportunity to do so. Here in Glasgow, I am always happy to meet constituents to discuss any issue that I may be

Margaret Curran MP WHAT a busy year it has been so far! With the local council elections, the referendum campaign picking up pace, and lots of local issues, the first half of the year has been hectic. I looks like the summer will be equally busy. I plan on holding a number of coffee mornings and I am looking forward to seeing some of the usual faces and plenty of new ones too. I am also helping to launch the campaign

to save the local jobs at the Freshlink Factory in Shettleston. These jobs are vital to the local economy and I will do all I can to keep them in the East End of Glasgow. The campaign will be launched soon and I hope that as many people as possible will get behind it. The summer will also be full of fun days, fetes and community events for us all to get along to. These are always great fun and I

will do my best to attend as many as I can. Remember my local surgeries do not run during the school holidays but you can always get in touch with my office by phone or email, or attend one of my summer roving surgeries if you need my help. So keep an eye out for me out and about in your area over the summer. I just hope that the weather gets better so we can all enjoy the summer and all the events on offer!

Cannabis Cultivation OFFICERS from ‘B’ division’s community policing teams are asking local residents to be vigilant as a number of cultivations have been found within properties in the local area. These sites often are at risk of fire due to electrical tampering. Your Housing provider will take action against any tenant found to have such a cultivation in their property. Many of these cultivations are linked to serious and organised crime groups. Their criminal activities threaten communities, businesses and jobs. They make profit from the misery of others. You can help us reduce the threat of serious and organised crime by telling us when you see anything suspicious. It’s often the little details that count, helping us to build up a picture of an individual or business. ADVICE FOR THE PUBLIC HOW TO SPOT CANNABIS CULTIVATIONS Some of the signs to look out

for are: • The windows of the property are permanently covered from the inside, often with foil or bin bags. There may be a build up of condensation on the glass. • Pungent smells may emanate from the premises, or excessive use of air fresheners or moth balls to disguise the aroma. • Noise coming from equipment on the premises, eg fans or heaters. • There may be vents protruding through the roof or rear windows. • The Cannabis or by-products, such as used fertiliser, may be removed in black bin bags, laundry bags or suitcases. • Tenants do not live on the premises and only make short visits, daily or weekly to maintain them. • Powerful lights on all day or night. • Compost bags or gardening equipment may be left outside the rear of the premises. • Visits to the premises can occur at unusual times of the day or night.

LEGAL NOTICE Goods Vehicle Operator’s Licence Francis Murphy trading as Frank Murphy Haulage of 6 Cunningham Street, Motherwell ML1 3EW is applying to change an existing licence as follows To keep an extra 1 goods vehicle and 0 trailers at the operating centre at 279 Shettleston Road, Glasgow G31 5JL Owners or occupiers of land (including buildings) near the operating centre(s) who believe that their use or enjoyment of that land would be affected, should make written representations to the Traffic Commissioner at Hillcrest House, 386 Harehills Lane, Leeds, LS9 6NF stating their reasons, within 21 days of this notice. Representors must at the same time send a copy of their representations to the applicant at the address given at the top of this notice. A Guide to Making Representations is available from the Traffic Commissioner’s Office.

THE RISKS Cannabis cultivations represent a direct threat to our communities. Properties used to house Cannabis cultivations, and those near them, are exposed to a number of threats. The growing process requires a large amount of heaters, fans, and high voltage lamps and the amount of energy required increases the risk of electrical fire. In addition, to reduce their costs and increase profits, criminals will divert the electrical supply, bypassing vital safety mechanisms, further increasing this risk.

Good Work Cannabis Cultivation On 27 June, response officers from Shettleston Police Office, Constables Douglas Scott and John Bell, received intelligence from an anonymous member of the public regarding a possible cannabis Cultivation. They attended and carried out checks of the address before obtaining a search warrant. Entry to the property was forced where the officers found a male within. The address was searched and a number of cannabis plants and cultivation equipment were recovered. Subsequent investigations revealed that male responsible had also bypassed the electricity meter. Knife Crime Whilst on patrol, plain clothes officers, from the Proactive team based in the east end of Glasgow seen a male cycling on Westmuir Street, the male seemed very unsteady and vehicles were swerving to avoid him. The officers decided to stop the male as they believed he was under the influence of drink or drugs,

which whilst cycling poses a huge risk to the cyclist and other road users. The male searched and was found to be in possession of a locking knife which was secreted within a pair of gloves in his right hand jacket pocket. The male was also found in possession of cannabis, the officer arrested the male and he was held custody for court the following day. Housebreaking On 26th June the ‘B’ Divisional Support Unit, which form part of the Divisional Support Group, responded to a report of males breaking in to a house on James Street, Glasgow. The officers attended and saw a smashed window on the ground floor. The officers entered the premises through the broken window. One inside the officers found two males within. As the two males did not belong to the address and could provide no lawful reason for being there, both were arrested and held custody for court the following day.

SPORT No.1 for Local Sports Coverage

NATIONAL YOUTHS VISIT LARGS CENTRE SQUADS from the Scottish Youth Football Association Development Programme received a welcome end-of-season training camp boost at Largs. Inverclyde’s National Sports Centre - used for SFA coaching courses - hosted a fair sprinkling of East End-based players in the Under-15 and Under-16 age groups. National Development coaches organised a varied three-day programme involving ball work and some excellent educational themes. SFA Director of Football Jim Fleeting highlighted the new Player Pathway Initiative alongside Positive Coaching Scotland. A Drug Awareness seminar was delivered by Strathclyde Police, and SFA Referees’ Association chiefs explained their role in football. Facilities at the trim Ayrshire venue are superb, but it was not all hard work for 36 players as coaches organised a fun

game’s night, which proved highly entertaining. Players can be selected at national level if they are part of their region, and West Secretary Jim Smith admitted : “It has been a great end of season for these players.” Mr Smith, who is on the SYFA Development Committee, added: “I would urge clubs to support the regions. Put the players’ nominations in as soon as possible, and no later than midAugust.” Meanwhile, The Celtic Boys’ Club failed to prevent Milngavie running up a treble this year. The Under-13 league champions, who had already beaten Celts in a one-sided GADYF League Cup final, crushed them 5-0 in the Only Sport West Regional Cup at Petershill Park. Celtic had won three different

After the break, Scott Simpson and Daniel Cairney made it 5-0. Scottish Under-15 Cup finalists Antonine Blacks took revenge on St Peters for their defeat a year ago. A blistering first half display saw Saints ship five goals, and the final scoreline was 9-0. Congratulations to Bonnyton Thistle for a clean sweep of Under-19 honours. The Scottish Cup, League Cup and League winners produced a powerful second half display against

Rossvale. Calum Watt put them into a 1-0 interval lead. After Stuart Walker increased their advantage, Stuart Davidson and Greig Mitchell added additional goals for a 4-0 victory. FINAL RESULTS: Under-13 - Milngavie 5, The Celtic Boys’ Club 0. Under-14 - St Andrews 3, Moorlands 5 aet. Under-15 - Antonine Blacks 9, St Peters 0. Under-16 Barrhead Yellow 1, Port Glasgow 0.
