IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THOSE USING THE TRAIN FROM KELVINDALE STATION TO GET TO WORK – FROM 23rd MARCH, 2020.

With the unprecedented global crisis, staff availability in ScotRail and Network Rail Scotland has been affected, as well as customer demand. That’s why, from Monday, 23 March 2020, we’ll be operating a revised timetable.

The timetable that will operate from Monday, 23 March represents significant change from the normal daily timetable, with a specific focus to deliver an effective public transport service for key workers..

Reducing the number of trains in service creates opportunities for additional cleaning activities on trains, and in depots, and allows more targeted cleaning at stations.

The service level will deliver more than enough seats to meet the current demand levels and the timetable will be kept under regular review to react to any further developments.

Important information about the current health crisis and how it affects our community.

Dear Friends,

We wanted to get in touch to offer local residents information on latest developments around Covid-19 (Coronovirus) and provide contacts for further advice and guidance.

Glasgow City Council is providing updates here: https://www.glasgow.gov.uk/coronavirus

Scottish Government’s regularly updated guidance is here: https://www.gov.scot/coronavirus-covid-19/

Public health advice can be found at: Coronavirus (COVID-19) on NHS Inform.

A free helpline has been set up for people who do not have symptoms but are looking for general advice: 0800 028 2816

Businesses across Scotland can find advice and guidance on COVID-19 here: https://www.gov.scot/news/covid-19-helpline-for-scottish-businesses/

There’s also friendly, helpful community support and advice offered by the NextDoor blog here: https://blog.nextdoor.co.uk/2020/03/13/how-can-you-use-nextdoor-to-help-your-neighbours-in-a-time-of-need/

In particular, if you’re able to lend a hand to neighbours who are social distancing or self isolating, this simple idea from Becky Vass in Cornwall is proving popular:

In light of the circumstances, we’ve taken guidance from our colleagues at the Council and will postpone our forthcoming monthly public meeting on Thursday 19th March.

That said, we remain available to contact as usual at kelvindalecc@gmail.com and through our Facebook page.  And remember, you can find lots of information and contacts for local services on the website www.kelvindale.org

During the coming weeks/months our locally elected councillors and other ancillary services will be very busy – so please support them however you can.

From all of us at Kelvindale Community Council, our very best.

Discarded syringes.

We have received reports that discarded syringes have been found within the Kelvindale area. Hopefully this is an isolated incident. In the good old days chemists used to keep “sharps boxes” where these items could be taken, but this no longer applies. You need to ring the Environmental Health Dept on 0300 343 7027 who will arrange collection of the items. They only collect items which are in public areas. As always, do not take any risks handling syringes of any type, and please do not dispose of them in any domestic, recycling, street or commercial waste bin.
