SPRINGBURN Youth Forum was awarded funding for its park project.

We told earlier how pupils at the school had designed an outdoor space to cater for their needs and those of the community.

Their application for £4782 to support the project, through Wee Green Grants, was successful and it is hoped the project will begin soon.

Drawings have been made showing the layout of the outdoor seating area, which would include picnic tables, an arch with climbing plants, benches, a log seating square.

It has been designed to be eco-friendly with a hedge planted around the edge. Wildflowers, trees and other flora will grow in the grounds.

Springburn Youth Forum (SYF) designed the outdoor space and school pupils were given a say in what they wanted from the project which was drawn up into official plans by architects.

Linda Hamilton, the headteacher of the school, said: “It has been a community effort but I have to say the pupils have been astonishing."
