FOPG nominated in the Scottish Green Awards for Best Green Community Initiative

Clay Community Church has been involved working alongside local residents and partners on a number of different environmental projects in Possil, through local charity Friends of Possilpark Greenspace. The work has now meant FOPG have been nominated in the Scottish Green Awards for Best Green Community Initiative. This was reported on the 24th July in the Daily Record – you can see the article here: ‘Inner city community in the running for top green accolade after turning derelict eyesore into blooming meadow’

“The area has much deprivation and has been troubled by gangs and vandalism, but the meadow has been respected by all. Children made big wooden flowers for the meadow and all remain untouched. ‘The children were so enthusiastic. They really loved it and threw themselves in to it. It was wonderful to see.’ So many of the children in Possilpark become disillusioned by the struggle around them, but improving their environment was one way of bringing hope and ambition into the area.”
