How did young Scots aged 15-19 use their free time in 1964? A University of Glasgow researcher, tried to find some answers to this question in the mid-1960s. From 1963 to 1966 she interviewed 600 young people in the 15-19 age range in Dennistoun, Drumchapel and Armadale, and consulted another 2400 in discussion groups and through written work.

A call is being put out to programmers, researchers, artists, educators, and thinkers within the Dennistoun community who are able to participate with the exciting new ‘Skill/Trade’ project based at Duke Street’s Market Gallery. Skill/Trade will have an emphasis on trading and exchange rather than monetary transactions.
The Leader of Glasgow City Council, Councillor Gordon Mathieson, has established a Factoring Commission, chaired by Mrs Jean Charsley (Hillhead Community Council), with the aim of establishing a blueprint for how common property can best be managed and maintained in our city.
Glasgow, from its legacy as an industrial city, now has a problem with stalled sites across the city. Glasgow currently has more vacant sites than the rest of Scotland put together. Many of these sites may have plans for future development, however this can be anywhere from one to over ten years until development is scheduled to begin.
