Greenock - Rig Arts, Broomhill Arts Flat

Broomhill court was built in the 1960s and became a popular block of flats for families to live in the Broomhill area. For the past two years RIG Arts have been using creativity to assist River Clyde Homes with the regeneration of Broomhill. As part of the regeneration RIG Arts have been creating and facilitating many different art projects and workshops for Broomhill residents and the wider Inverclyde public. These classes are held in our designated ‘art flat’ within Broomhill court. For Doors Open days we will host an exhibition of sorts, displaying items and information from a variety of our workshops. We will also hang plaques around the flat about recycling, how to reuse objects and providing more eco tips for households.


Greenock Walking Tour - Guided Walk in Historic Quarter

“ Guided Walk in Greenock’s Historic Quarter” Take a step back in time and discover with us the hidden treasures of Greenock’s rich past. Starting at the Victorian Town Hall and Municipal Buildings, our journey takes in the history of the ‘Toon Kirk’ before we wander down William Street to see some of Greenock’s oldest surviving buildings and discover the sad tales of overcrowded slums that grew with the influx of labourers for the growing shipyard and shipping businesses. Walking down to the river, we marvel at the magnificent Custom House building and nearby Beacon Tower and we hear the emigrant tales of families taking a leap of faith as they boarded ships that would take them to a new life across the oceans.


HMP Greenock

HMP Greenock was built between 1907 and 1910, taking its first prisoners on 28th August 1910.  HMP Greenock holds adult male prisoners on remand and short-term convicted prisoners and is a national facility for prisoners serving 12 years or over, providing the opportunity for progression towards release.  The prison also holds remand, short-term and long-term convicted female adult prisoners from the west of Scotland. Whilst the prison will ensure safe custody for people during their period of imprisonment, the ultimate desire of the prison is to return people to their communities as citizens prepared to positively contribute. In support of this desire we now have two dedicated Community Integration Units, one for short term male prisoners and one for short term female prisoners, these units are designed to support and help re-integrate offenders back into the community. Further to this we also have a dedicated Through-care Support Team that work with partner organisations in the local and surrounding communities to support those coming up to and during their initial period back in their communities.


Inverclyde Unpaid Work Service

Inverclyde Unpaid Work Service is a statutory service within Criminal Justice Social Work with the purpose of providing the Scottish Criminal Courts with a credible community based alternative to a custodial sentence. This service is innovative in harnessing the re-integrative and rehabilitative potential in providing opportunities to build capacities around employment skills, including painting and decorating and gardening. This service supports many local projects and organisations as well as providing these services to more vulnerable local people. Building on our event last year, there will be the opportunity to see in action our new Bike Project. We restore and fix old bicycles making them as good as new for children and families within the community who would benefit from them. We are offering the opportunity for visitors to come along with their bikes and experience tuition and maintenance session for free! To book a place please contact Colin Horseburgh on 01475 715372.
