Hi. I don't live in Bishopbriggs but love it! Maybe someone could start a petition to keep the nostalgia of Bishy for the strong history that it has? Maybe with a few tweeks it could be an attraction to many. The Crow pub has been there for centuries for one. They demolished Water Row in Glasgow and pulled down a piece of history that would have brought many to visit to see how those houses functions...coal fire in the living-room and a beautiful big range in the kitchen which had a recess for a double bed in each room. I could go on and on but when I went back one day just to see the building when I got off the subway and my heart broke as there was no building to see, it had been demolished. So, count me in as a supporter for any petition if it starts up. It can be done. :)

unfortunately the history of bishy includes their refusal to help the refugees from the clydebank blitz and shelter had to found elsewhere.

Yes but like everywhere there is good and bad history but if enough people involved in any petitions then at least they will/should be listened to.

Perhaps starting the petition yourself instead of goading others to do it would have been a better idea surely ?

You will no doubt also upset some who also know that Water Row was not Glasgow but Govan as that argument has caught fire on here too.

Good luck with your petition if you ever get it started but I am now curious as to  why a someone who does not live in bishy would be trying to have someone else start a petition on nostalgia of an area they do not live in.

Hi.

I visit Bishopbriggs very often and love it as it seems so unchanged for quit sometime now, there are huge pictures in Morrison's supermarket showing the Crow bar and the actual village which has some beautiful buildings in it. I thought some folk from Bishopbriggs might not even know of the changes that will take place and aslso thought people from Bishopbriggs would be better to actually start the petition. I mean no malice of any kind. I actually count Govan as part of Glasgow as the post code is G51.
AGAIN, absolutely NO malice is intended, just think it would be good to let people know that they could, if they want, to try keep Bishy as it is.

Thanks Targer.

Everywhere I go I see good quality buildings being demolished and either wendy houses or glass buildings flying up all over the place. Keep the good old ones please lol!! :)

Clydesdale Bank has closed in Bishopbriggs, they've even taken away their ATMs next to Morrisons!

Can't believe it! Have all residents been notified of the huge amendments planned for the future of BB?
