Blether Friendship Club
Weekly Mondays, 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th May, 6-8pm
After a visit to the Belfast Friendship Club, we have been inspired to start a similar club in Glasgow: Blether Friendship Club.
The idea of this is simple – to provide a safe space for people of different backgrounds and nationalities to meet each other.
We are a diverse group of people with a lot in common, and so Blether Friendship Club will be a space for people who are new to the city, and people who have always lived here, to:
We come from many walks of life and many countries – including Scotland. Some of us are in work, looking for work or supporting family elsewhere. We may be retired, or studying, or unable to work, perhaps because we are seeking sanctuary. We may be distant from our original ‘homes’ and families and learning English as a 2nd/3rd/4th/5th language, as well as making another life here.
We create safe space for building friendships but we are not a dating agency. So, the only two ‘rules’, while maintaining the space generally as a safe space, are no flirting and no recruiting for religious or political purposes.
When you arrive you will be
If you want to find out more about Blether, why not come along to our first gathering, on Monday 13th February at 6pm at The Project Café, or on any Monday after that.
We’d be grateful if you would advertise this wherever relevant. If you’d like more information, please get in touch – email us at email@example.com or phone Ronnie on 07340866978

We have visited the Belfast Friendship Club and are very grateful for their support of Blether, and for the seven years’ experience they have of running such a club which they are sharing with us as we start something similar – with a tartan slant.
Hope to see you there.

Pavement Volunteer Meeting
Tuesday 30th May, 6-8pm
This is a volunteer meeting for the Pavement Magazine, which will provide a chance for the volunteers to meet one another and discuss plans for running the organisations printed magazine and website. We will be inviting our current volunteer group to attend, and newcomers are welcome to join and find out more about us.
A large amount of our work relies on our volunteers, a group made up of homeless, formerly homeless and non-homeless people who contribute articles, photography and other content to the magazine, helping homelesss people across the UK navigate the streets, the law and the (unfair) housing system. We think it is important to meet with our volunteers face-to-face periodically, as it benefits their development as contributors as well as giving us all a chance to hear first-hand accounts of some of the issues people face on the streets and in temporary accommodation. Ultimately those who will benefit the most are the thousands of readers across the UK who rely on up-to-date, accurate content and listings information to surivive. Our recent moves to welcome in a larger group of volunteers is an attempt to improve our ability to provide this content on a more regular basis.
