Article: Parkhead and Ibrox locals ‘should be consulted’ on matchday disruption

Residents living near Ibrox and Parkhead should be consulted on how matches affect their lives, according to a senior Labour councillor.

Alistair Watson believes there should be more consultations on large-scale events, such as Rangers and Celtic Games, with locals.

He admitted some events“can and should” be managed better, and has called for community consultations like that held for Bellahouston Park’s Summer Sessions to be held for all large events in Glasgow.

SouthWest Foodbank

Our foodbanks are part of  The Trusssell Trust network of 424 foodbanks, working to tackle food poverty and hunger in our local communities, as well as across the UK.

The Foodbank Network was founded in 2004 after four years of developing the original foodbank based in Salisbury. Since then The Trussell Trust has helped communities work together to launch foodbanks nationwide in a wide range of towns and cities.

In 2015/16, The Trussell Trust’s Foodbank Network provided 1,109,309 three-day emergency food supplies and support to UK people in crisis. Of these, over 400,000 went to children.

As a network, we want to see more people helped out of crisis and fewer people needing foodbanks in the future. That’s why The Trussell Trust and local foodbanks are working together to develop new ways to help people out of crisis through programmes like More Than Food.

To find out more about The Trussell Trust visit www.trusselltrust.org.
