Tay Rail Bridge Disaster Memorial Group

Later this evening, I was 'minute-taker' at the latest meeting of the Tay Rail Bridge Disaster Memorial Group, that took place at the Bridgeview Station Restaurant on Riverside Drive.

It was a very productive meeting, involving representatives from both North East Fife and Dundee. There has been substantial interest in the campaign to have a proper and permanent memorial to the victims of the 1879 disaster, and the group's Chair, Stuart Morris of Balgonie, and I recently had positive on-site informal discussions with council officers about the proposed site for the memorial, near to the bridge.

A public financial appeal will be launched in October.
