Friends of Magdalen Green success!

I was delighted to learn earlier today that Friends of Magdalen Green has won the environment category of the Dundee Partnership Awards 2009.

The Friends have worked hard over the past few years to protect and enhance Magdalen Green, and a great debt of gratitude is owed to our first chair, the late Sheila Roy, who did so much to establish and grow the group's activities. It is fitting that our Vice Chair Angela received news from the Dundee Partnership today - Sheila's birthday.

The Friends will receive a small cash award to help its activities and a trophy and a short film about the group will be viewed at the Partnership Awards Dinner in November. As the Friends' Acting Chair, I would like to particularly thank the committee members who put much effort into the group's submission to the Dundee Partnership - well done!
