Glasgow cleans up for 2014 bid

Glasgow City Council has hired The Big Partnership to encourage residents to help clean up the city to assist its bid to host the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The one-year contract – worth between £30,000 and £40,000 – will see Big urge residents to ‘take ownership’ of their neigh­bourhoods.  The agency will promote info­­r­­­mation about litter fines and how to clear up graffiti and hire skips.

‘We have had some bad local press and we want to help Glasgow to lose its dirty tag to improve our chances when the Commonwealth assessment team comes to inspect Glasgow,’ said acting head of corporate marketing Lynn Dalgleish.
