Video Documenting the demise and new development of the Kingston Bowling Club into a community space.
The Pollokshields Trust have been awarded funding from the Aspiring Communities Fund to develop the Kingston Bowling Green into a Community Green Space.
This was based upon goals identified by the local community during the Make Your Mark Charrette process in 2016.
For the next three months we will be holding consultations and working on the site with community members. We are calling this project Mark Makers.
Community activity will include;
Meeting key community groups and local residents
Walkabouts on site
Clearing the site ready for community activity
Hosting activity days and consultation events
Recording our activities through a short film
Recruiting volunteers and community representatives
If you would like to know more, get involved, become a member or attend one of our open days
