That this House congratulates Maryhill Housing Association on its 40th anniversary of providing housing, sustained regeneration and support to members of the Maryhill and Ruchill communities; notes the organisation is one of the most high-profile housing associations in Glasgow and now provides over 3,000 homes to its communities; further congratulates Maryhill Housing for working in the spirit of Scotland's housing association movement by investing in people beyond their tenancies; further notes that the organisation currently runs its own allotments, offers apprenticeships to young people and provides services such as a community fund for local improvements and a free financial inclusion service to help local people obtain grants and access to state benefits; thanks all of those who have worked so hard to ensure the success of Maryhill Housing over the years; and looks forward to many more years of admirable work as it continues to breathe new life into Maryhill and Ruchill.
