Today at the Scottish Parliament, I met with staff from Marie Curie to hear about their work and got behind the daffodil to lend my support to the Great Daffodil Appeal.
Last year they provided care and support for more than 7,400 people living with a terminal illness in Scotland.
The G1 and G2 bus services run from Maryhill and Kelvindale to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and will be terminated by Stagecoach on April 23 after they were deemed not "commercially viable". They are new services that have run for the past six months.
The two buses take residents directly to the new hospital. Along with SNP Councillors John Letford and Franny Scally, I have met Stagecoach, but they won't budge. Despite not being willing to reverse their decision, Stagecoach acknowledged there may be ways to drive up passenger numbers and retain an important transport link for communities in areas such as Wyndford and Kelvindale.
We will be meeting with SPT to work in partnership to find a solution when we meet with them next week.
I am inundated with messages from constituents saying how much they rely on the service. I would urge constituents to sign our community petition calling for the G1 and G2 services to continue.

Several constituents have been in contact with me about significant issues in relation to flooding in Summerston, and in particular at the railway bridge on Sandbank Street. I have been in correspondence with Glasgow City Council for several months on this matter, and certainly before the most recent period of flooding. Staying in Summerston myself I well know this flooding has been a long term problem in this area and I am disappointed that the City Council has never previously sought a long term solution.
