Glasgow City Council keep saying that The North Kelvin Meadow and Children’s Wood is derelict and unused. We find this surprising since formally there are at least about 1,000 people on the land per month and probably the same again informally.
We’ve also heard from several council members that building on the land is a ‘done deal’. This is also surprising since there is a whole planning process to go through. Why bother with a planning process if it’s a ‘done deal’? we wan’t to know what they know that we don’t?
We believe that we can save this space for the community. There are multiple reasons why it should not be built on and why it should remain the community space it has always been. This music event is one more community gathering designed to inspire and engage families but also to show Glasgow City Council that we use and love this land.
Join our Facebook page to find out more about the The Little House of La gig. Or, just turn up on the 26th of January (this is thought to be the most depressing day of the year) for some uplifting music. The event will start at 2:30 and finish at 4:30. Children can make instruments to play while the band perform. A donation of £5 per family. Pay on the door.
Thank you Little House of La for brining back that summer holiday feeling to the Children’s Wood. Lots of happy memories for the 300 or so folk there today. Thanks to everyone who came along, and especially to everyone who helped to make the day run so smoothly.
The band say that they will return to the Children’s Wood at some point, keep watching our website or ‘like’ us on Facebook to keep up-to-date. The Little House of La have a Facebook page which we highly recommend. They will be posting information like future gigs, publication of CD plus more.
The band have give us a few CD’s from their ‘parent’ group The House of La. (which are fantastic) Get in contact if you would like one.
Look forward to seeing you soon. Remember! we’re in the Botanics on Friday and The Children’s Wood on Sunday the 30th for the Gruffalo!
