    Our Seniors club are having a difficult time putting down their musical instruments lately. After a great performance at Life Is A Cabaret last October, the group are now working with Bryan Tolland on a satirical radio comedy, 12 Angry Men (With Some Angry Wimmin), inspired by Reginald Rose’s 1954 drama. Along with lending their voices for the various characters, the play will feature songs written and performed by the club.

    The Create Crew returned to the Scottish Parliament last Thursday. This time they had the opportunity to interview First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as part of their investigative documentary about the impact of austerity measures on young people around Glasgow. Various topics were discussed during the 45-minute meeting, including age discrimination, mental health issues, food banks and benefit sanctions. The crew certainly rose to the occasion and the First Minister was impressed by their confidence and their questions. A successful day overall, even had enough time for a few selfies.
