Councillor Archie Graham, Executive Member for the Commonwealth Games at Glasgow City Council, will provide an overview on the work underway across the city to date, in terms of the venues under construction and re-development such as Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls, the National Indoor Sports Arena and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, and plans for the Athletes' Village.
Councillor Graham will also set out the city’s plans and ambitions for how Glasgow will benefit from hosting of the Games and the legacy they will leave behind.
