Stalls at Bungo in the Back Lanes 2018

April 23rd, 2018 No comments

Famous for its residents’ stalls selling everything from bric-a-brac and jewellery to homemade food and crafts, Bungo in the Back Lanes is an annual community festival that takes place in the lanes of Strathbungo.

The most exciting part of the festival is seeing which DIY stalls are set up on the day. Previous years have produced snail races, jumble stalls and a guess-the-sweeties-in-the-jar competition.

This year, #BitBL2018 is on 23rd June 2018.

Do you want to put up a stall?

Are you happy to host a stall or three in your garden?

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Residents are free to open up their garden or let someone else use it. Please let us know if you are happy for your garden to be used and we can help match you with a stallholder.
  • If you are not a resident and are planning on setting up a stall outside someone’s garden, please check first that they are happy for you to do so. Alternatively, there are several spots along the side lanes that are not directly outside people’s gardens.
  • If you are selling from your garden, make sure you have good signage on the lane letting people know what awaits them. Otherwise, nobody will know!
  • Do let us know where your stall is so we can add it onto our map.
  • If you are planning on selling food, you will need a food safety licence from the council. Please contact:

Glasgow City Consultation – Parks and Green Spaces

April 5th, 2018 No comments

Hi folks

Please see the following link to a Glasgow City Council formal consultation on a Vision for Glasgow Parks and Green Spaces.

GGC Consultations.

I think we should be pushing for greater “city-wide” recognition for Queens Park – and much higher levels of maintenance.

Make your own suggestions direct to the Council, discuss them here, or pass them to me at chair@strathbungo.co.uk

Btw – there is a Consultation Hub and there are several other consultation of relevance – Transport, High Street etc. – at the same GGC Consultations link which may be of interest.

We’ve had hundreds of dubious requests to be registered as a user over the past few weeks. For now, we’ve suspended user registration.

We’re developing a new-look website and blog, and we’ll have a different approach for those who wish to contribute to the blog. We’ll make some changes about commenting on pages and posts as well.

Apart from smartening up the website, we’re making changes to enable us to comply more easily with the new data protection regime being implemented in the UK from May 2018.

Watch this space!
