Glasgow South Seeds: Newspaper published to spread the word

Over 700 copies of a newspaper dedicated to active travel in Glasgow's south side have been published.

South Seeds Travel Times

South Side Active Travel Times gives readers full details on how they can walk, cycle or use public transport to get around.

The newspaper is the brainchild of community organisation South Seeds who felt there was a clear need to give residents more options on how to travel locally.

The idea won the support of Paths for All, who gave South Seeds a Communities Active Travel grant at the end of last year.

Since then, 730 copies of the eight-page tabloid were produced and were free to pick up from the area's many coffee shops and community centres.

Lucy Gillie, general manager at South Seeds said: "The south side is known as one of the most densely poulated areas in Scotland, so relying on cars and car parking is no longer an option.
