And then came Tuesday ...

Following a very productive meeting with representatives of the Western Cemetery Association and the City Council's Leisure and Communities Department on-site at the cemetery at lunchtime, I attended an opening exhibition view of the shortlisted designs of the V and A at Dundee project, held at the library of the University of Abertay, Dundee.   I am dreadfully impressed by the imaginative designs and the 3-D Fly Throughs are really helpful. 

I hope there's a great turnout at the exhibition and that people give their views on the designs.   My personal preference is the Delugan Meissl design - really striking - and my photo of it from the exhibition is pictured above.   Rather better images are available on the V and A at Dundee website!

This evening, I attended an excellent meeting at Blackness Primary School about the possibility of starting a 'walking bus' - the video below from Ireland was shown - it really sums up the concept and it would be great to see the project progressed at the school :
