Scottish Youth Forum is working tirelessly to address this problem within Pollokshields. We are trying to educate the residents to dispose the household waste responsibily. We are working with local schools, faith groups, Community organisations and residents to address the issue. We have been very successful and amount of flytipping has been reduced significantly.
Residents of Pollokshields are invited to join us to carry out the back-courts cleanup. All the residents who will come out on Saturday 4th July will cleanup their own back-court. We will meet up at the corner of Melville St / Keir St corner for briefing and then we will start clean-up. Happy to help with mowing lawns if needed. For further information, please contact me on 07412 469 957 or email me at email@example.com
Thank you to everyone who came along to the 6th June Community Clean-up. Despite the rain and heavy wind you continued the carry on. Your support is always very much appreciated.
Thank you and well done to you all.

- Herriet Lane is looking much more tidier. Thanks to Councillor Raja for providing help through Community Payback scheme.
- Next clean up is 6th of June.

The Police Commanders were present to have a Q&A about these and any wider, general issues.
Ch Insp Carol Maguire summarised last months crime statistics. Overall the level of crime is low compared to rest of Glasgow South. There were no assaults in past month (there were 10 two months ago). Only 9 crimes reported in last month. There is a higher rate of theft of valuables from cars. Residents are advised to adopt good practice by locking doors and removing valuables from vehicles or stroing them securely (boot or glove compartment). In Glasgow south there has been an increase in ATM theft however nothing reported in Pollokshields – residents are encouraged to be careful of any suspicious looking machines and make sure it is reported.
