August 2015 – Community Clean-up

2015-08-01-Community Clean-up

Thank you very much for your continued support for supporting me to make Pollokshields a tidier and nicer place to live in.  Your contribution have made significant difference and we can do a lot more but obviously with your help and support.
Back-courts Cleanup
Residents of Pollokshields are invited to join us to carry out the back-courts cleanup.  All the residents who will come out on Saturday 1st August will cleanup their own back-court.  We are changing our approach from 1st of August, as in the past we were only concentrating on Square Park and surrounding streets where as now we are going to target each block and residents of that block will clear their own blocks.
Those who are unable to make it to the clean-up, can you please inform your neighbours, if they have any bulk it furniture or anything else that needs to be disposed, please leave it on the pavement before 1.00pm this Saturday ONLY.  As a part of our cleanup initiative, we have agreed with the Glasgow City Council that they will uplift on First Saturday of each month as a part of our cleanup.  If residents left their bulk rubbish any day apart from our cleanup day it will be considered as Flytipping and there is £200.00 fine.
We will meet up outside Pollokshields Library Kenmure St & Leslie Street Corner for briefing and then we will start clean-up.  Happy to help with mowing lawns if needed.  For further information, please contact me (Tahir Mohammed) on 07412 469 957 or email me at
Please forward this email to all your Pollokshields Contacts.

Neighbourhood Improvement Volunteers

Just a polite reminder, Community Clean-up will take place on First Saturday of every month from 11:00 – 13:00.  Please do join us.
