As a nurse who trained and worked in the Victoria starting in the 80s, I feel the problems are budget related.
In the olden days, each ward had a designated ward maid who had total power over her domestic domain and cleaned those wards with dedication and fervour.
Regularly, there was a full ward clean, where the beds were moved from one side to another, high dusting, curtains removed and washed and cleaned.
As a student, I was expected to clean as well and all manner of equipment was our responsibility. As the years passed, and the contracts put out to tender, the cleaners were expected to cover more wards in less time for less money. The hygiene levels must be affected.
Now that National Lottery tickets are doubling in price (£2 a ticket), I would like to thank them for saving me £6 a week.
I used to spend £5 on a Wednesday and £5 on a Saturday. Now I spend £2 on a Wednesday and £2 on a Saturday. A saving of £6. I will not be the only one.
Congratulations to Drumchapel, the place where I spent the most happiest of childhoods.
My family moved to 97 Achamore Road around 1953/4 when I was seven or eight-years-old.
Most of the scheme was still being built and was like an adventure playground to a city kid with all the open spaces and fields to play in.
I drove to the Drum last week and it was sad to see my old building and many more were no longer there, although it was nice to see the new houses that are there.

I know this is just a temporary grey surface in George Square until the Games are over, but I love this surface, so would be inclined to keep it.
I've always been an advocate for a dramatic water feature, so hope we see that in Phase 2 as well.
