As strangers to the city, and with a car-load of luggage, we didn't know what to expect, but we were overwhelmed with offers of help from a special team of student volunteers who did most of the fetching and carrying, and were so pleasant and friendly that it felt like a very warm welcome.
Youngsters these days don't always get a good press, but the ones we met last week were a credit to the university and to Glasgow.

Stub it out
RE the front page on Saturday regarding smokers outside hospital entrances/exits. I visited Hairmyres, in East Kilbride, last Monday night and noticed a male patient in a wheel chair, sitting at the door with his hood up, puffing away.
When I left, over an hour later, he was still there.
I also visited Monklands last Friday and the amount of people with unlit cigarettes in their mouths inside the exit doors was unbelievable.

River City fears
IT is about time the BBC script writers got rid of all the gangsters in Shieldinch and returned River City to the family-based story lines we all once loved.
Getting rid of Gina is not good news. Actress Libby McArthur has been fabulous in the role - I am sure she will continue to have a great future - but can River City survive without her. I think not.

DESPITE the weather warnings, we had a great day in the sunshine at Pollok Park on Saturday enjoying the Highland 'coo' show.
The beasts, scrubbed and washed within an inch of their lives, looked magnificent. Well done to all concerned.
