Bungo feeder ride to Pedal on Parliament Sunday 23rd April

April 18th, 2017 No comments

Pedal on parliament

This is first time Pedal on Parliament has had a Glasgow event.   Pedal on Parliament is campaigning for improved infrastructure for cycling,  see here for the manifesto

Some cyclists from Strathbungo have arranged to join other cyclists from Waverley Park at 11.45 at Shields Rd/Nithsdale Rd junction and then meet main feeder ride from Pollok Park to join event at Glasgow Green.  On the way we want to take photos and highlight the non-existent links between Strathbungo and the South West cycle path.   Children are welcome – we have allowed lots of time to get to Glasgow Green – and we can walk across junctions before joining the South West cycle path.     We will make arrangements on the day – depending on who turns up and what time they want to leave George Square – for cycling back (though train also possible).  Any questions please contact me Nickkempe1@gmail.com

SPRING FLING 2017 – bigger and even better!

After a week that saw snow, the day of Spring Fling enjoyed glorious sun that brought hundreds of local people into this year’s new venue of Langside Halls. The home baking donated by Strathbungo Society members and friends was a great attraction in the vintage-themed tea-room. Stall holders in the craft fair demonstrated the range of creativity at work in the Southside – with everything from hats to blankets to jewellery to greeting cards to ceramics to fashion for sale.

This year’s Bungo Bake-Off was even more popular than last year and the nearly two dozen entries looked amazing. Our guest judges – Chris from Christopher Robin and Jules from Snugglemuffin – had a tough job assessing the cakes, and after much deliberation Kevin Kane, Society Chair, awarded the following prizes:

Adult section:

1st prize: Michelle Aaron for Coconut and Passion-fruit Cake
2nd prize: Frances Johnstone for Chocolate and Honey Cake
3rd prize: Adell Mitchell for Lemon and Elderflower Drizzle Cake

Junior section:

1st prize: Luca Corbett
Joint 2nd prize: Alexander Thomson
Joint 2nd prize: Matilda Barr

Thanks to everyone that made the event such a success. Firstly to Jules and Chris the Bake-Off Judges; to all those who donated prizes for the Bake-Off (Rosie Ilett and Gerry Hassan, Bakery 47, Christopher Robin, Gusto and Relish and Rock ‘n Rollers) and to all those who took part, and congratulations to the prize winners; to all the stall holders who came along and displayed their fabulous work; to everyone from the Strathbungo Society and their friends who helped on the day and who donated home baking, and to those who made other donations – Fenwick’s Café, Eastwood Toll; Snugglemuffin and Water Coolers Scotland. Thanks to Vera and the team at Langside Halls for all their help – and most of all to everyone who came along.
