The Strathbungo Society in its present form began in 1994, reconstituting the moribund Strathbungo Conservation Society. You can read a pamphlet from the old society (PDF, 6Mb) that details some history of the society and the conservation area. The new society also broadened its aims to include community events and outward-looking incomers – young families, professionals, media and art, activists.
The society is run by a committee of volunteers, who meet on the third Tuesday of every month at 7.30pm. The venue is The Bungo Bar & Kitchen at 17 Nithsdale Road. The Events section lists upcoming meetings. The committee hears from sub-groups on communications, events, the environment, Queens Park, etc. Importantly, the Strathbungo Society is not a community council and is not affiliated to any other public or private sector organisation.
The society runs a year-round calendar of events and publishes a quarterly newsletter. An Awards for All grant in 2003 helped fund various heritage programmes. Otherwise, the society is supported by membership subscriptions, newsletter advertising and the odd coins from a grateful community.
