Cheerful Christmas festivities come to Possilpark

Possilpark Business Improvement District officially launched their Christmas campaign, #PossilparkLovesChristmas, with a host of festivities planned for the season.

Activity packs, a treasure hunt and memorial baubles are among the touching celebrations taking place as the local community and businesses come together.

Jackie Shearer of Possilpark BID said: “Possilpark has really come together this Christmas to lift the spirits in what’s been a very tough year and to bring joy to the area and celebrate the strength of community.”

A Christmas tree has been erected at the top of Saracen Street, bringing seasonal cheer to the area. It features hand-decorated memorial from St Matthew’s Centre.

The #PossilparkLovesChristmas celebrations have been made possible by help from the Canal Ward Area Partnership Fund, Glasgow City Council, NG Homes, Allied Vehicles Group and Foundation Scotland. Glasgow Canal Co-op also part-funded activity through the Heritage Project Fund.

Partners include Boom Community Arts, CHCP, Hawthorn Housing Co-operative, Link Up, NG Homes, Possilpark Community Council, Possilpark People’s Trust, Possobilities, St Matthew’s Centre, Thriving Places Ruchill Possilpark and Young People’s Future.
