Life’s a Beach…

Posted by Boundary Community Launderette on 20/08/2010

Another weekend is upon us, and so we’ve found some free things you might enjoy locally – also something a bit further afield, but only a short journey away by bus and well worth it!  The estate is being used for filming again, we’ve put the info here for you too.

Much of this weekend will mean disruption to residents of the Boundary Estate due to filming yet again, from Saturday right through to Monday. There are parking restrictions in force on Arnold Circus, Boundary Street, Calvert Avenue, Navarre Street and Old Nichol Street at various times and days. Take notice of the yellow ‘Parking Suspended’ notices, and make sure your vehicle is moved before the times specified or it might be towed away.

Saturday the company will be ‘setting up’ between 7am and 7pm. On Sunday filming is meant to be between 6am and 6pm, Monday between 8am and 9pm. On Sunday 22nd Boundary Street we will closed to vehicles and bicycles, and Boundary Passage will be closed to bicycles.
