A series of local events are being held for residents and businesses near Commonwealth Games venues or cultural live sites, offering useful information on the changes they can expect to see in the lead up to and during Games time, how to prepare for potential alterations to daily routines and how to ensure they can make the most of the opportunity to get involved.
The Commonwealth Games will touch the lives of everyone in the city, in some way shape or form. The event will also change how the city functions and operates for its duration. Get Ready Glasgow is the campaign to help people across Glasgow plan for the Games. Everyone living or working near Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games’ venues will have the chance to find out more about the impact on their neighbourhoods as the city prepares to host the largest sporting and cultural event ever held in Scotland.
The events local to Dennistoun are being held as follows:

- Thursday 15th May: Tollcross International Swimming Centre
- Tuesday 20th May: Merchant City Live Zone at The Old Fruitmarket

All events run from 5:30pm – 7:30pm, with a short presentation at 6pm, followed by a question and answer session.
Organised by Glasgow City Council, Glasgow 2014 and Police Scotland, the events will give people the chance to find out more about the recently released Local Area Traffic Management and Parking Plans (LATM&Ps), and discuss how they may be affected.
