Banner Short

It is a privilege to represent the Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn constituency as your MSP. I stay in Maryhill with my wife Janet, and young son. Before I became an MSP, I was a secondary school teacher for 10 years.

Since first being elected as a Glasgow MSP in 2007 I have worked hard to deliver for local constituents. As your constituency MSP for Maryhill and Springburn I hope to build on that progress, help to protect the communities I know best from the worst ravages of UK austerity, and deliver to all people in Maryhill and Springburn

    By Bob Doris MSP

    Long overdue buggy path to be built at school in Ruchill.

Parents have been fighting for a buggy path since the new campus opened in 2013 to try and prevent many families having to bump prams and buggies up dozens of steps twice a day. The previous Council administration crazily failed to ensure access to the new campus was fully accessible and family friendly.

    I am delighted an example of excellent partnership work in Possil that I have been pleased to support has had a key funding boost. The partnership is between local businesses, community groups, NG Homes and the City Council. Partners have been developing a business improvement district, a funding mechanism from Scotland’s Towns Partnership who are funded by the Scottish Government. Everyone is keen to play their part in improving the local area and make it a more welcoming and attractive place to visit.
