A NEIGHBOURHOOD in Glasgow has received a new noticeboard after a two-year delay due to the pandemic.

North Kelvin Community Council finally installed the information board last week.

The board is at the corner of Queen Margaret Drive and Kelvin Drive and will showcase information about local issues.

Alasdair Macdonald, a member of the community council, said: “It will give information about issues such as the ones being discussed by the community council.

"It will also display public information, for example during the pandemic we got lots of material from Glasgow City Council, or if there are any local initiatives.

“Quite often, we get asked how people can raise particular concerns with us, so it will also help them know their way around the system.”

The board itself was bought two years ago, but due to the pandemic Glasgow City Council was forced to delay the installation process.

Mr Macdonald added: "I'm really pleased with it, it has quite a good design.

"With the promise of social media, we do quite a lot online, but it's useful for people to pass it and see it."

The group, which also manages a noticeboard on Belmont Street, are planning on setting up another one in the nearby Queen's Cross area as well.

A Glasgow City Council spokeswoman said: “Community councils play important roles in our local neighbourhoods and we work in partnership with them to empower and inform city residents.

“Many community councils in the city have community notice boards and the council helped North Kelvin Community Council install this new one, so that they can keep people informed of issues which affect the local area and encourage people to get involved in their work.”
