We lived in Blantyre Street from 1953 to 1965 and there was always trouble parking when the Kelvin Hall was having exhibitions, circuses or other events.
My late husband got a petition signed by all flat residents in Blantyre Street and sent it to the corporation, who told us 'first come' first served'.
We couldn't get permission to park even although we lived there.
I AM bsolutely sickened by the UK Government's decision to close the Remploy Factory in Springburn.
The Government is slashing the living allowance for the disabled and telling people there are jobs out there.
What about the 46 staff in Springburn? What chance do they have of securing future employment? Forty-three of them have a disability.
These staff have worked hard to build self-confidence, only to be told that they basically have a bleak future on benefits.

GORDON Matheson's latest comments about Glasgow's bus service come as no surprise.
Fresh from spreading scare stories about the city's rail stations – all of which are secure – he is looking for another cooked-up battle with the Scottish Government instead of working constructively for Glasgow.
The Scottish Government funds bus services with a quarter of a billion pounds a year. We are investing in companies like First Bus with funding for new 'green' buses that improve passenger experiences, cut fuel costs and help cut pollution on city streets, delivering the M77 hard shoulder bus route, and have pledged £40m for the construction costs of Fastlink to improve bus services in the city.
Fare increases made by specific bus firms are a matter for them and they must take responsibility.
It is entirely misleading to state that any service level or fare changes are solely down to amendments to bus service operator grants. In reality the change in the budget represents somewhere about 1-2% of most fares.
Gordon Matheson is responsible for one key area of transport in Glasgow where he could make a real difference for the city's road-users: the potholes.
I know many citizens would be grateful if, instead of concentrating on arguing with the Scottish Government, he concentrated on doing his job and fixed the potholes.
