Summer's Here - Community Voting Event Jun 13, 2019

Summer is here! Gorbals Ideas Fund are celebrating the start of the summer holidays with a Community Voting Event at The Barn, 37 Abbotsford Place on Saturday 29th June 2019.

The event starts at 12.30pm and finishes at 3.30pm and will have all sorts of food, fun and entertainment to keep you amused!

You'll be able to find out about all of the ideas up for funding, and if you are 8 years and over you'll be able to vote for the ideas you think would make the biggest difference to you, your family, friends and the community.

Voting will close at 3pm and winners will be announced shortly after that, so it's going to be an exciting day.

As some people find it difficult to travel across the area, Gorbals Ideas Fund are putting on a free bus service to bring you from Oatlands, Hutchesontown, Ballater Street and Crown Street along to The Barn and back again! Times and venues are below:

Pick-ups from:

  • Oatlands Community Hub: 12.30pm, 1.15pm
  • St Francis Community Centre: 12.35pm, 1.20pm
  • Gorbals Leisure Centre: 12.40pm, 1.25pm
  • Co-op Crown Street: 12.45pm, 1.30pm

Gorbals Ideas Fund are working in partnership with Urban Union Ltd for this event, who have provided space to hold Graffiti Workshops! There will be three, 30 minute sessions across the day. To book a place on a workshop send an email to or call Jo on 0141 429 3900.

We're really looking forward to the day and hope to see you there.
