For too long Maryhill has felt like a no-go area but I believe things are really starting to look up.
I've lived in the area for about 10 years and I've noticed there are far more police walking around. I don't think you can underestimate how reassuring that is, particularly if you are female.
There have been a lot of changes in the area, not least the renovation of Maryhill Burgh Halls, which are a tremendous asset for the area.
Let's hope it is the start of a brighter future for the area.
