All in for Parkhead!

The All in: For Parkhead event was a great success with over 60 people in attendance. As a group we came up with many ideas for improvements we want to make to the Parkhead community and now we’re working together to put some of the ideas into practice. The Action Group is working on plans to do a series of litter picks in the area and we’re delighted to be working with the Dogs Trust on dog owner education sessions.
