  • I wouldn't worry too much. Despite what the Mail and the Star might say asylum seekers bring less crime, higher educational attainment and greater respect for their surroundings. If you are lucky there will be a bounce in enterprise creating jobs not to mention greater diversity and vibrancy. I doubt the trauma and struggles that many asylum seekers have faced will affect your life. Of course were I an asylum seeker moving to the area I would be concerned about the racism, drug abuse but would probably just settle down and make the most of my whole community.

  • I lived in Holmhead Place in Cathcart for 13 yrs only moved out last year and to my knowledge there is no asylum seekers in that area. I have heard that there may be some that has moved into new houses built where the old primary school used to be near Cathcart bowling club but not sure if there is any truth in that think its Ashmore Road
