Green project launches in Pollokshields

Community invited to free event on 7 July.

The Pollokshields Development Agency (PDA) has been recently awarded a grant from the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund to deliver an exciting project raising awareness of climate change.

Over the next two years the PDA Goes Green project will offer free training workshops, public events and home advice focusing on food and textile waste reduction and energy saving practices.

Another exciting project activity is the installation of a Community Fridge, inviting the community to share fresh, healthy food completely free of charge!

PDA hope that committed individuals representing the diverse community will form an Advisory Group for the project. This will enable the community to take ownership of the project and champion it from within.

The event takes place at Pollokshields Community Centre and Shields Community Garden (Kenmure Street - G41 2NT) on 7 July. The community are invited to drop in from 2pm to 4pm.

The event is FREE and will also include family fun activities, food, stalls, freebies and raffles!

You can find out more about the launch event and PDA Goes Green on the PDA Goes Green Facebook page.
