Getting things done - Lochee Road #dundeewestend

Residents have drawn to my attention the poor condition of the pavement on Lochee Road from Mitchell Street to Black Street.

I highlighted this with the council's Roads Maintenance Partnership and have received the following helpful response :

"This section of Lochee Road footway between Mitchell Street to Black Street has been identified for including in the 2018/2019 footway slurry seal programme subject to budget availability. The works have yet to be programmed."

The Gaff - exhibition in the D'Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum

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

David Blyth + Nick Gordon
The Gaff
Running until 29th June 2018
D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum, University of Dundee
Open Fridays 2pm– 4.30pm. By appointment at other times.

Welcome to The Gaff. Inspired by the preserved vestiges of D’Arcy Thompson’s personal collection, Scottish artists David Blyth and Nick Gordon pay homage to this visionary man of Natural Science through playful response to the displays at the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum. With reference to Thompson’s seminal book On Growth and Form, the exhibition showcases individual sculptural works by the two artists unified through their interrogation of ‘material culture’ and the accepted codes of the museum experience. ‘Behave, you Animal!’

In fact, it was a mutual interest in D’Arcy Thompson’s book that brought the artists together for this collaborative exhibition. By introducing new artworks into the historical collection to challenge the conventions of taxonomy and explore alternative connections and contexts, they aim to release new ideas from the zoological specimens within the collection.

The Gaff seeks to breathe new life into the museum experience by encouraging a different set of questions about the natural world and our perceptual understanding of what this means today. 

David Blyth lives and works in rural Aberdeenshire. He works at Gray’s School of Art as an academic lecturer on the Contemporary Art Practice course. David’s work involves the craft skills of taxidermy to draw upon narratives of Scottish folklore, shamanism and human-animal relations.

Nick Gordon lives and works in Stromness, Orkney, where he works as a technician at Soulisquoy Printmakers. An avid beachcomber, Nick’s work uses mixed media collage to explore our relationship with the environment. His work is a contemporary reflection of the cognitive processes of collecting, arranging, displaying and analysing – an archaeology of sorts. 

The exhibition can be seen in the Zoology Museum on Fridays 2-4.30pm until 29 June.    Find out more about it here

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

This exhibition will look at DC Thomson’s early beginnings in the 19th century to their domination of the printing presses by the early 20th century.

Kids since 1962.

Blackness Post Office - electronic door entry #dundeewestend

Residents have reported concerns that the electronic door entry button at Blackness Post Office, to assist customers with mobility difficulties, is still not working and so I again took this up with Post Office Limited.

The company's External Affairs Manager has responded positively as follows 

"Thank you for getting in touch in relation to the door entry button at Blackness Road Post Office. 

I have asked the field team to raise this issue with the postmaster. You may know that the vast majority of our post offices are operated by independent agents. As such Post Office ltd is not responsible for the building. 

Before we issue a contact which allows agents to provide services, we do insist on certain things such as the building being accessible for people with disabilities. This usually means that the branch needs to be DDA compliant. I don't believe such a button comes under this legislation. 

Therefore whilst we can ask and encourage the postmaster to take action, we unfortunately cannot insist on such action being taken as it doesn't breach any contractual issues. 

That said we will impress on the postmaster the importance of getting this fixed and the inconvenience it is causing customers."

Halliday & Sesar at the Wighton!

From Sheena Wellington :

Wighton Heritage Centre, Central Library 
Saturday 19th May at 11am (doors open 10.30am) 
Cappuccino Concert with Chris Sesar and Gill Halliday
Singer song-writers, Chris Sesar and Gill Halliday have gained recognition for their genre defying repertoire, effortlessly blending Celtic folk and roots, country music & Americana with a brush of gypsy jazz.

Chris Sesar's songs paint the landscape of human relationships with gentle colours and delicate detail, sometimes bitter sweet, sometimes dark and with a comic twist.

Since March 2016 Chris has been touring Scottish & European Venues with Angus based singer songwriter Gill Halliday. Her intuitive use of wind instruments adds a layer of depth and versatility to the performance whilst her powerful voice delivers her songs with heartfelt honesty.

Individually, Sesar & Halliday are both brilliant vocal performers. Their harmonies, however, are nothing short of mesmerising.

Arrive at 10.30am to grab a coffee and a newspaper, then sit back and relax from 11am-12 noon to enjoy the concert.

£5 Tickets on the door and a suggested donation of £1 for coffee and newspaper.

D'Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum Birthday Blow Out!

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

Residents are invited to join us at 6pm on Tuesday 15th May to celebrate the 10th and 125th anniversaries of the D'Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum.

D'Arcy began building his collection in 1885 and opened his original museum 125 years ago in 1893. It was sadly dismantled in 1956 prior to the demolition of the building to make way for the new University Tower. 

The museum was later recreated in various dispersed displays around the Biological Sciences Institute, but only when it relocated to its current home in the Carnelley Building 10 years ago were we able to have a single dedicated space for the museum and thus open it regularly to the public.

Since then we have welcomed thousands of visitors and held dozens of events, as well as providing a unique learning and teaching environment for students from over 20 different undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

This special anniversary evening will feature short presentations by curator Matthew Jarron, honorary curators and volunteers Cathy Caudwell and Brian Eddy, Fine Art student Ray Byrne, Medical Art course director Caroline Erolin, Art & Design tutor Helen McCoig, Anatomy tutor Luke Reid and Creative Writing tutor Eddie Small.

The event is free but please book at here.   Please enter via the main front door of the Carnelley Building. Refreshments will be served afterwards.

We hope you can join us for this special occasion!

Bus stop east of Harris Academy moved - trial basis

For some considerable time, along with nearby residents, Harris Academy and its Parent Council, I have suggested to the City Council that the westbound public bus stop on Perth Road that lies just east of Harris Academy should be moved very slightly west to in front of the school.

This would have the following advantages :

+ Far better standing area for passengers waiting for a bus as the plaza in front of the school is spacious.

+ Less crowded situation than where the current bus stop is when passengers are waiting at the stop and school pupils are exiting the school at the end of the school day.

+ The existing bus stop is extremely close to the School Crossing Patroller;  in front of the school is not.

There has been a lengthy debate with council transportation officers about this but, at last, a trial move has been agreed to ascertain how well this works - this will commence today.

This update was sent by a City Council transportation officer to Harris Academy last week which fully explains the trial period arrangements :

"I refer to the Harris Academy Parent Council Meeting of 8th March 2018 where (we) agreed to investigate the possibility of moving the bus stop for a trial period to monitor the effect of the bus stop move especially at the end of the of the school day.     I am pleased to confirm that we have agreed to move the bus stop into the bus lay-by in front of the main school entrance for a trial period to commence from Wednesday 9th May until Friday 1st June inclusive. 

Discussion have been ongoing with the bus operators who have agreed to the trial period being put in place.    The parking team has also been informed of this change and the necessary changes to the plate will be carried out on Tuesday 8th May 2018.     During the trial period the bus stop will be enforceable between the normal times of 0700hrs - 2300hrs where only buses will be legally able to wait.      The parking team have agreed to be in attendance on occasion during the trial period.

Can you please notify staff and parents that the bus stop will now be out of action for general vehicles use during the trial period and that any misuse may result in the vehicle receiving a Parking Charge Notice (PCN).

The transport team will monitor the effect of the local bus services using the revised stop during the trial period with a view to making a decision about the trial period becoming the permanent stop location."

During this period, I would welcome any feedback from residents - many thanks.
