During a busy Tuesday, I had the pleasure of attending a launch meeting of 'DUSTIE' - an initiative by the Enterprise Gym at the University of Dundee.
This is an excellent initiative that is aimed at providing university students with paid, supervised work experience that will benefit both the student and the local community. The first two projects - a Green Advice Centre and a Green Bike Travel project - have much merit and it will be good to see the projects develop in the months ahead.
Also yesterday, I visited the new police office at Dundee Airport where two of our local community police officers are now based. It is good to see community bases like this for our community police officers. During the visit I was also able to speak with the Airport Manager about airport issues.
Last night, I attended the latest meeting of "Bonnie Dundee", the group that encourages improvements to the Dundee environment and helps local groups who keep Dundee's parks, open areas, streets and gardens in good shape. There was a good discussion about local improvements, including in the area around the Seabraes steps.
