Look out for the sign! (This one is at Haymarket).

The Scotrail Alliance has announced that free Wifi is now available at Lenzie and Bishopbriggs Stations.  Wifi is available at around 50 stations, apparently and 90% of rolling stock are expected to be connected by autumn 2018.

Installation work is currently underway on the trains which serve Glasgow suburban routes, Lanarkshire and Inverclyde and this will add to the current provision on the main inter-city routes.

Christmas Lights Switch-On

2010switchon1-22Despite the high winds and rain on Friday night, the event went ahead and there was an amazingly high turnout of parents and children.  The event was moved inside to the Hall of Lenzie Old Parish Church and this made sure that the Band, the Carol Singers and Father Christmas were not blown away – Father Christmas’s beard had a hard time all the same.

When the big switch-on time came along, the pavement at Queen’s Buildings was lined with expectant children and adults who had a grandstand view of the dazzling light up.  More photos on Facebook page.

Many thanks to all those who participated and who defied the weather to come along.

Free Herbs for all!

Do you simply not bother buying a packet of herbs as you always end up throwing half of them away?  If so, check out the Lenzie Community Council herb garden on the bottom deck of the planter by the station car park.  There’s a real mixture of just about everything:


parsley (flat leaf and curly), sage, thyme, mint, marjoram, lemon balm, rosemary and even a couple of curry plants.  With the exception of the nasturtiums (edible flowers not yet in evidence thanks to our poor summer) the plants are all ready and will benefit from being picked.  So please help yourselves and enjoy the additional flavour they bring to your cooking.

Plants kindly supplied by East Dunbartonshire Council.

The Lenzie Gala is going ahead on 15 August, the weekend before the schools return for the autumn term.  And to make sure we all end the summer on a super high, one of our Gala sponsors CODA Estates has offered a wheelbarrow of wine as a raffle prize.  As well as offering financial sponsorship to the Gala they will also be taking a stall and holding a raffle to raise funds for the Schiehallion Unit at Yorkhill Sick Children’s Hospital which helps children with blood disorders and cancer.  So make sure you come along to the Gala to get your ticket to be in with a chance of winning.  There will be other prizes as well so watch this space for further details.  As well as CODA Estates, our other gala sponsors – Cedar Nursery, Memory Lane Flowers, Millersneuk Dental Practice, Fleming Buildings, Taylor Wimpey, Arnold Clark and Miller Beckett & Jackson solicitors have all kindly agreed to carry their sponsorship forward to the new date.  We are also working on a Plan B if the weather is bad again but fingers crossed that won’t be necessary.Wheelbarrow of wine

This New Year Lenzie Jog attracted a record number of registrations.  The weather was pretty cold with a nasty shower at the beginning, but the winning time for the 8.6k route (we think) was 28 mins 58 seconds, clocked by Graham Anderson.  This was all of 5 seconds faster than last year’s winning time.  The number of runners attempting the double route was up 9% on last year.

Good times were achieved in the shorter races also and you can read provisional results for all three distances by clicking 2015 Jog results draft

The photo was from last year – but if anybody has a photo from this year, despite the weather, we would be glad to use it.

GlasgowHospital_005_Adult Hospital Main EntranceMark McAllister of Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS made a very informative presentation, at the Community Council AGM, on current hospital developments, focused on the new South Glasgow Hospital on the Southern General site.  The new hospital complex will include a Children’s Hospital, replacing Yorkhill.  You can see all the details for yourself by clicking ‘SGUH Presentation Nov 2014‘.

The presentation has a useful map of Greater Glasgow, showing where services will be retained or moved to the new site.  Facilities in the new hospital are outlined, together with transport options and project timelines.
