Living Wage Week 2019

This week is Living Wage Week 2019.    

The real Living Wage is now £9.30 per hour, and is based on cost of living.

Living Wage Scotland awards the Living Wage employer mark to Scottish employers - a symbol of responsible business practice.

Why the real Living Wage is needed :

+ 470,000 people in Scotland don't earn the real Living Wage.

+ 182,000 children in Scotland live in poverty despite having one person in their household in work.

In-work poverty remains a real problem.

You can read more about progress with the Living Wage in Dundee here.

THIS - An exhibition celebrating the life and work of Jim Stewart


From the Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee :

THIS
An exhibition celebrating the life and work of Jim Stewart (1952-2016)
Tower Foyer Gallery, University of Dundee

Jim Stewart was an inspirational and much-admired author and teacher described by Dundee’s Makar, W N Herbert, as “one of the most significant poets of the last decade”. 

James Clark Quinn Stewart was born in 1952 to a working-class family in a cold tap and outside toilet dwelling on the Lochee Road, Dundee, barely surviving a near-fatal bronchial illness in early infancy. He and his younger sister, Ros, were brought up by their single mother, a devout Jehovah’s Witness. Often at odds with the church in later life, Jim remained devout and became a learned theologian.

Jim studied English at the University of Dundee (where he went on to teach for many years) and completed a PhD at Edinburgh, basing his research on the works of Virginia Woolf – a passion which remained with him, together with a deep reverence for nature and music, all his life.

Known as Jim to friends, colleagues and students alike, he became an inspirational and much-admired teacher.  He wrote poetry from childhood and went on to become one of Scotland’s finest nature poets, if one of the most modest. His keen poet’s eye found beauty in everything: flies, moles, spiders and especially bees. The publishing of collections did not rate highly in his list of ambitions and he often had to supplement his income from short-contract university teaching with bouts of window-cleaning and proof-reading, as he describes in letters included in the exhibition.

Central to the exhibition is a portfolio box designed and created by Marion Archibald at her studio in The Old Printing Works, Thornton. The box contains a hand-painted book of tributes to Jim in the form of poetry and prose. Created by Marion and Jim’s former student Keren Macpherson, the book folds out to five metres in length. 

The exhibition also features several of Jim’s poems along with paintings and etchings by Keren and fellow artists Kirstie Behrens, Merran Gunn and Derek Robertson, interpreting and illustrating Jim’s poems in a unique and personal way.

The exhibition runs until 14th December – Monday to Friday 9.30am-7pm and Saturday 1pm-5pm.

Action taken to tackle smell problem from Riverside composting site #dundeewestend

As reported recently in the Courier, over the summer, I again raised numerous residents' complaints about the smell problem caused by the composting operation at the Riverside Civic Amenity site adjacent to Riverside Nature Park.

The problem appears to be particularly noticeable during shredding as part of the composting operation and the wind changes direction.   

Staff attempt to ensure the operation happens only when the wind is to the south, away from the residential housing along the western part of Perth Road and in adjacent streets like Riverside Place, Millbay Terrace and Gardens, Clovis Duveau Drive, Millhall Crescent, River Crescent and Newhall Gardens.    

However, the complaints about the smell issue have been numerous in the latter part of the summer in particular.

Last Friday, I had a very productive meeting with a member of environment management of the City Council to discuss the issues and attempt to ensure the situation is much improved going forward.    

I am pleased to note that the council is now finalising an Odour Management Plan for Riverside that I went through with environment management at the meeting.     This is helpful as I am adamant that residents should not have to endure this smell issue and it is welcome that the council is taking proper steps to tackle this problem.
