New Victoria Gardens’ Annual Flower & Vegetable Show is adding something new this year —a home-grown High Street with ‘shops’ and open spaces dotted throughout the 3.3 acre site.
A highlight of the Glasgow summer calendar for over a century, this year’s event is set for Saturday, 19 August, 2-5pm at 55 Glenapp Street in Pollokshields G41 2NQ.
Among the attractions:
All that and more, plus an old-time Flower & Vegetable Show, with hundreds of prize-winning plants, flowers and produce, much of it on sale for bargain prices at the end of the day.
Admission is a very reasonable £1, and accompanied children under 12 are free!
The Council has started a consultation project on the future of the Stable block (next to Pollok House) and surrounding listed buildings (sawmill and walled gardens). There will be consultation sessions, organised by Northlight Heritage.
These were originally scheduled to begin in late July, but have been postponed to allow more time to raise awareness of the project. New dates will be posted here as soon as we have them.
The next meeting of the Friends of Pollok Park group is Wednesday 16 August if anyone would like to attend. You can find out more about this new group on Facebook.
Bungo in the Back Lanes… It’s back, this Saturday June 17th, and better than ever!
To make sure that we make best use of the space in the lanes, we’re asking that folk could move vehicles out of the lanes, just for the day.
So, if your property backs on to the lanes, can you help by moving your car / van / etc out of the lane for the day please?
Are you planning on having a stall in your garden or lane on Saturday?
Please ensure that you have adequate signage for your stall on the day, especially if you are tucked away in a garden. This helps us to keep people moving but – more important – helps them to find you so that you can earn more money in sales!
Running this event takes a fair bit of work so we’re asking if there are any folk who would like to help out, especially on the day (June 17 this year), although there is some preparation work as well:
