As can be seen S.G.H.E.T. Management team has been very busy throughout the year. It is our intention to expand our membership and to address various heritage and environment issues within the Southside of Glasgow. One particular project, which S.G.H.E.T wishes to pursue, is the Queen's Park Bandstand. Discussions are already under way with Glasgow City Council and it is helped that other partners will come on board. The bandstand has been in a dilapidated state for some time now. It is hoped that various agencies can work together to restore it back to its former glory to become an important symbol of the Southside and a valuable resource for the community. Further discussions are also underway regarding the Alexander "Greek" Thomson Church in Caledonia Road. It is hoped that SGHET will be involved as partnership in this project.
