Busy Wednesday ...

In addition to visiting a number of constituents today on a variety of issues, I also:

* Participated in the City Council's Waste to Energy Plant Working Group meeting at which there was a lengthy discussion about Dundee Energy Recycling and the forthcoming reinstatement of the plant at Baldovie, following a fire in May of this year.

* Attended the October meeting of the Community Spirit Action Groupthe community group for the "north" part of West End Ward, coering Tullideph, Pentland, Ancrum and the Cleghorn area.   There was a very detailed and interesting presentation by Kathy Longmuir of the Countryside Rangers Service about the rangers' work.   Kathy spoke with great enthusiasm about environmental education, encouraging recreation and enjoyment of Dundee's wildlife and green spaces and working with local people of all ages.    Kathy also highlighted the work the rangers undertake at Balgay Hill - including a forthcoming volunteering day on the hill on Sunday 16th December, starting at 1pm.

* Was minute-taker at the latest Friends of Magdalen Green meeting, at which we discussed our involvement with the West End Christmas Fortnight, our new membership leaflet, parking and playpark issues and our 2012 Christmas Card.
