- National Park City Group
Come along to our next Supporters Get Together: Weds 7th Sept @ 7 - 8.30pm at The White House, 11 Maryhill Rd, G20 0DZ.
Our next Get together will be hosted at The White House - Free Wheel North’s second centre in Glasgow, and Maryhill’s oldest building. Formerly a lock-keeper’s home, a pub, a post-office and a dookit, Free Wheel North re-opened the building as a community hub, café and bike shop in July. The centre hosts talks and workshops enabling local people to get involved in the regeneration of Maryhill, and future plans are to create a centre for social justice and public space, campaigning for an active Glasgow where anybody can walk, wheel or cycle.
The Get Together will be an informal chance to meet up with others interested in a Greener, Healthier, Wilder City and have a bit of a look at the NPC Journey Book - https://www.nationalparkcity.org/journey - a 10 step guide to becoming a National Park City. We are starting to gather examples, stories and evidence from supporters and colleagues to feed into our journey book - so it'd be great to catch up with everyone and hear your news and ideas.
It would be great to see you there - and please share the invitation with any friends and colleagues interested in finding out more about GNPC.
A few days earlier there's another chance to meet like minded folk at an event run by one of our latest supporters at the Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Trust's big family fun day at Glasgow Botanic Gardens on the 3rd September, with artists, face painter, storytelling and minibeasting. There is also a workshop on amphibians and reptiles, how to recognise and find them, which can be booked for the super keen future herpetologist.
