Does anyone know who owns the Siamese cat that seems to live in the back lane between Queen and Marywood Square? Seems to be mainly around the 30s and 40s of the streets. Description below.
It’s been appearing at my back door fairly regularly for a few months, and having very loud, very vocal “discussions” with one of my cats. (If anyone has heard the “discussions” you’ll know how loud they are!)
The cat seems to be out at all hours and all weathers, and I just wondered if it is in fact owned, or if it’s a stray. I’d love to hear from the owner, or anyone who might know them.
Description: the Siamese is a fairly large, but quite skinny cat with soft brown head, vivid pale blue eyes and a very light cream front that shades to soft brown at its back, with soft brown legs and tail. It is a bit wary of people but not really shy.
Tonight sees the test launch of a new digital art projection facility that uses the front facade of Shawlands Academy as its canvass. With funding from Glasgow City Council and Shawlands & Strathbungo Community Council and the involvement of Architecture + Design Scotland and the UK’s leading lighting designers Lighting Collective , the ‘Shawlands Gate’ project includes facilities that allow digital art works and designs to be projected onto the facade of the Academy. Funded as part of the Shawlands Town Centre Action Plan, the aim is to brighten up this major gateway to Shawlands town centre, the “Heart of Glasgow’s (Cosmopolitan) South Side”. The project has allowed the Academy’s young people to display their digital creativity and, in the future, may allow professional artists to use this unique “canvass” as part of Glasgow’s international arts festival, GI.
Shawlands Gate has also led to new trees being planted to the front facade of the Academy (and getting rid teacher parking), given its young people the opportunity to to learn and design Public Art and get involved in the local community via their research into the history and businesses in Skirving Street. And, as a result of the project young people at Shawlnads Academy are giving their views on new plans to upgrade Langside Halls. Shawlands Gate is the first of many projects whose aim is to develop Shawlands as the Heart of Glasgow’s cosmopolitan South Side.
Your chance to see the Olympic Torch close to home will be possible in June. The Olympic Torch Relay will pass close to Strathbungo (in Shawlands – Langside Avenue/ Pollokshaws Road) on Friday 8th June 2012 at 16.48. Full details of the route being taken are available via the attached link –
Perhaps members of the society are already aware of this and have passed it on, but it seems that we will be saddled with the charming building works at the east end of Nithsdale Road for another month. As a reward for their consideration in our neighbourhood, the aptly named Forkers have been offered the contract to carry out the repair work to the lanes, requiring continued use of their infernally bleeping diggers seven days a week.
If it is possible to salvage a silver lining from this situation, it is that Forkers will have to clean the windows in Nithsdale Road once they’ve finished (I’m guessing that this only applies to the outside and that the dust that has forced its way onto inner sills and into closes will revert to our jurisdiction) and those who would like to have their cars washed should make themselves known to the site manager, Willie, for him to arrange it.
