Baldernock Community Council

We are a small parish of around 280 households 7 miles north of Glasgow. Our closest town is Milngavie and we are a largely dispersed rural community but include the villages of Bardowie and Balmore. We have a thriving playgroup and primary school, a church and we are home to the Balmore Trust, a charity. We were lucky enough to secure Climate Challenge Funding and ran a project which ended in March 2011. We carried out energy surveys and held awareness-raising events and think there has been a lasting positive effect. We were the first Community Council to join SCCS.

We believe that dynamic communities have the power to make positive changes in our society. SEAD’s projects support people to become part of this change. We work with communities in Scotland and in the developing world to exchange ideas, knowledge and inspiration. We provide tools and support to turn this into action.
spokes

Spokes

Spokes is a voluntary organisation with 1200 members, mainly in Edinburgh and Lothian, aiming to promote cycling for everyday transport, and to persuade councils and government to do the same. Activities include lobbying, public meetings, traffic counts, stalls, bike rides, and bike maps. Cycle use has grown from 1% of commuter trips when Spokes began to 7% now. A success has been Edinburgh Council allocating 5% of its transport budget to cycling, rising by 1% annually till the next election. A failure is that the Scottish Government still allocates under 1% of its transport budget to cycling.
Sustrans
