Marshmallow & Spaghetti 'Construct a Tower' Challenge

On Tuesday our club members took part in a technical challenge that tested their skills and patience. Each group was asked to construct a tower using only marshmallow and spaghetti. The group with the tallest (stable) tower would be crowned the winner!!

Team work and cooperation was needed throughout the task. 

The leaning tower of Yoker.

Each group had their own ideas on how to tackle the challenge.

This was a bonkers winning approach to the task. Congratulations to the winning team!

DRC Scotstoun Football Team

Here are the DRC Scotstoun squad before Friday's game against Summerstoun A. The game against Summerstoun was a close affair that unfortunately ended in defeat for our lads.  Lots of positives from Friday though, we created numerous chances but just need to be a bit more clinical up front. Onwards and upwards.

This was the first chance for the team to try out their new kits which are sponsored by our friends at 'De'ils on Wheels'.

'DRC Gardening Project'

We made some serious progress up at the allotment last week. Preparations were made to ensure the ground was ready for the raised beds.

DRC Gardening Project

We will be building the raised beds in the allotments at Sandholm Place between 1-4pm. Our members are all welcome, so come along and get stuck in!

Remember to wear old clothes and boots or wellies in case its a bit muddy. Once the beds are built we will decide on the veggies we will be planting in the next week or so to get a crop before Easter.


We are starting a new LGBTQ+ group which will meet in 'Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre' on Tuesday 27th October from 7pm - 9pm. 

The group will discuss issues affecting LGBTQ+ young people and, in the future, will network with other groups to identify common issues which can be addressed through shared campaigning.

Anyone between the ages of 13-18, and identifies as LBGTQ+ is more than welcome. Please feel free to contact us or speak to a member of the DRC staff for more details

Check this out! 

Here is a short video from our adventure @ 'Airspace'. This trip was a reward for the hard work and dedication shown by members of our Scotstoun club. 

This summer is action packed at the 'DRC Youth Project'. Keep up to date with all that is happening at our clubs by checking our Facebook and blog on a regular basis. 

Community Events Group - One week to go!

All hands are on deck with just over a week to go until our talented performance group's summer show. Rehearsals are well underway, songs are being choreographed, backgrounds are being painted and tickets are being printed (as we speak!). This show is going to be an absolute cracker.


Sometimes you've just got to make the most of the little good weather we get in Bonnie Scotland. Last Friday we set up the BBQ and started tucking in to some good grub. A great way to get the weekend started!
