Sleep in the Park 2018

Security Scotland were proud to part of Social Bite’s nationwide Sleep in the Park 2018 event, providing the steward & security personnel to both Glasgow sites.

10,000 people slept out in city’s across Scotland on Saturday night, including in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Park.

Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Bandstand also saw the first performance of Frightened Rabbit since the death of lead singer Scott Hutchison, and a surprise appearance by Biffy Clyro as part of the mass sleepout to help the country’s homeless.

KT Tunstall also thanked the 10,000 fundraisers taking part across the country in a mass sleepout for showing solidarity with homeless people and helping collect £3.2 million.

Tunstall and fellow singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald performed a whirlwind four gigs in one evening as they loaned their support to the Sleep in the Park event taking part in Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The Glasgow event manager commented, “thanks again to Security Scotland management and team for a great service and a really smooth event”.

Sleep in the Park

Security Scotland are delighted to announce they will be providing the security and stewarding at Social Bite’s – Sleep in the Park, Glasgow event in December.

The entertainment side of the event will take place at Kelvingrove Bandstand which will feature Amy McDonald, KT Tunstall, Frightened Rabbit, then the actual overnight Sleep Zone will take place in Kelvingrove Park that will feature a bedtime story from Irvine Welsh.

Security Scotland’s Managing Director commented “this is a fantastic event to be involved in given the background cause of trying to end homelessness in Scotland”.

Last year 8,000 people joined the world’s largest sleep out In Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh to raise £4 million and call for an end to homelessness in Scotland. This year the organisers have caused a sea of change in the fight against homelessness and have funded a raft of major projects. Now they want to keep up the momentum and we are asking 12,000 people across 4 cities to join us in a nationwide sleep out on Saturday 8th December.

Counter Terrorism – ACT Initiative

Great, simplistic video clip reminding everyone if you’ve seen or heard something that could be deemed suspicious activity that would suggest a terrorist threat to the UK – do not ignore it, report it. In an emergency, or if you need urgent police assistance, you should always dial 999.

Flu Epidemic Update

Remember: NHS 24, 111 service provides urgent health advice out of hours, when your GP practice or dentist is closed.

It’s sometimes referred to as ‘unscheduled care services’. This means that the service is there for you, in the out of hours period when other sources of support such as your doctor or dentist are closed. They deal with the majority of calls during:

Mon – Thur: 6pm to 8am
6.00pm on Friday to 8.00am on Monday

People across Scotland can access the service, on landlines and mobile phones free of charge, using a number that is short and easy to remember.

Stay safe everyone !
