South of Glasgow, in East Renfrewshire, on the outskirts of Giffnock, is another of the most important clubs in the Glasgow area, the Glasgow Hutchesons Aloysians RFC (GHA). In 1450, John Stewart, Glasgow's first Lord Provost, left a donation so that a Saint Mungo bell could be made and rang all over the city so that citizens could pray for their soul.
It also houses the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the country, and the maintenance depot for the Glasgow metro system. Glasgow is represented both in the House of Commons in London and in the Scottish Parliament in Holyrood, Edinburgh. Saint Mungo is also said to have preached a sermon with the words Lord: Let Glasgow flourish by preaching the word and praising your name. The guide to parishes and registration districts in Scotland by numbers (PDF 1.4 MB) lists all parishes and districts ordered by reference number.
The Glasgow electoral region of the Scottish Parliament encompasses the Glasgow City Hall area, a northwestern part of South Lanarkshire and a small eastern part of Renfrewshire. The series of official data from the Meteorological Office dates back to 1959 and shows that there have been only a few warm and not at all hot summers in Glasgow, in sharp contrast to the southernmost areas of Great Britain and Eastern Europe. Pollok Park is Glasgow's largest park and, until the early 2000s, was the only rural park in the city limits. The city stands out for the architecture designed by the Glasgow School, the most notable exponent of that style being Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
The project aims to integrate heating, energy, transport, climate adaptation and welfare solutions that benefit all inhabitants of the Innovation District area. .
