Now that the summer has been and gone (it may have been one day in July, but nevermind), there are less and less outdoor and nature weekday activities happening in and around Glasgow, and even weekend events are getting rarer. As a consequence it doesn’t make much sense to have Wednesday as our upcoming activities spot AND Friday as our upcoming weekend events spot. There’s just not enough happening to justify two slots for two relatively similar posts.
Instead, all outdoor activities and events, whether weekday or weekend, will now be featured on Wednesday, covering the upcoming Thursday to following Wednesday, inclusive of the weekend. Friday in turn will be an open mike spot so to say – a bit like our Saturday slot.
So then, what’s on this week, from Thursday 8th to Wednesday 15th September?
