The Southside Association was founded in 1972 when local people campaigned to halt the demolition of tenements and other buildings in the area. Nowadays, the Association is a non-political amenity group, with an interest in social, welfare, environmental, educational, planning, licensing and recreational matters as they affect the Southside area.
The Southside Association meets on the first Tuesday of each month (except July and August) at 7pm in the South Side Community Centre, 117 Nicolson Street. We often have guest speakers on subjects of local interest, as well as a police officer and one of the local councillors being in attendance to answer questions and take up issues on behalf of members.
New members are always very welcome. Membership costs just £10 for a year (running from the AGM in May to the following April).
