Presentation to Eilidh


Yesterday, I was delighted to take part in a presentation at Blackness Library to Eilidh Van Aalten aged 8, winner of a competition run by the West End Christmas Fortnight in the run up to the festive season.   Eilidh lives locally and attends Blackness Primary School.

All local school children from the four West End Primary Schools were all invited to participate in a window spotting competition around the Perth Road district shopping area.   They were tasked with following a trail of clues in shop front window displays, and from the 50+ correct entries, Eilidh’s emerged out the hat at a recent meeting of West End Community Council, where the draw took place.

Eilidh wins a year’s Family Membership of the University of Dundee Botanic Garden that was presented to her by Frances Tait, Chair of the Friends of the University of Dundee Botanic Garden, and a cash gift that I presented.    Eilidh, Frances and I are pictured (right).
