West of Scotland Cricket Club - Juniors


Spring 2013

Indoor cricket sessions will start at West next week from Monday 28th January.

First Sessions will be: Mondays 6pm - 7.30pm for all up to U11s, Tuesdays 6pm - 7.30pm for U13s, and Wednesdays 6pm - 7.30pm for U15s and U18s.

For clarity, age groups are based on your age on 1st September last year. Eg Someone now 11 but who was still 10 on 1/9/12 is an U11 for season 2013.

We are always looking for new players so if you have pals/classmates (boys or girls) who might fancy cricket, please bring them along. They'll be very welcome at all age groups.

Lastly, if any senior players/parents can spare a bit of time to help out at the sessions that would be much appreciated.

Fox Walk

Woodlands Garden

Thursday, February 28, 2013


Come find out what animals lurk around the community garden at night. Join us as we visit some local Fox haunts in and around the Woodlands area.

Cannot gaurantee that we will see Foxes, but the odds are quite high. It's also quite exciting to be out when it's just getting dark!

All children MUST be accompanied by an adult.

Please wear warm clothes and bring a torch.

Woodlands Community Gardens, 91-111 West Princes Street, Glasgow G4 9BY

The programme will allow young people to increase their awareness of contemporary film-making and to develop critical thinking by accessing and critiquing new and exciting film work. They will be supported to develop the management, communication and organisational skills needed to host Project Ability's first International Film Festival in 2014. A mini festival will be held in February 2013.

If you are interested in finding out more information or would like to be placed on our mailing list to receive a booking form for the January 2013 block please contact [email protected]


Spy Mission Walking Trail

Glasgow Merchant City

Your mission: The dastardly Dr Weevil and his henchman Hamish have planted a bomb under Merchant Square intent on destroying the Glasgow landmark and throwing the city into disarray. Follow the trail of clues and find the code to disarm the bomb, ultimately saving the city from disaster!

The trail starts in George Square, leading you away from Merchant City, exploring Buchanan St, the River Clyde walkway and Glasgow Green before returning to Merchant City via St Andrews Aquare and through quaint little streets.

Clues for the mission are found on monuments, inscriptions and street signs along the way. A great opportunity for you to enjoy the shops, cafes and sights while keeping your kids entertained too!
