Wednesday meetings

Last night, I firstly attended the monthly meeting of Community Spirit Action Group, the residents' group for the 'north' of the West End Ward, covering areas like Cleghorn, Ancrum, Pentland, Tullideph and Milnbank/Forest Park.

There was an excellent presentation by Caroline Brown of the University of Dundee Archives about the work of the university's archives and also about the history of public health in Dundee.   Caroline is an excellent and interesting speaker and her presentation was really well-received.     There's a very useful on-line catalogue search facility for the university archives you can access here.

Later yesterday evening, I was acting chair at the Friends of Magdalen Green latest committee meeting at which we had a very useful chat with a representative of the City Council's Environment Department about possible new play equipment that the Friends wish to fundraise towards providing.    We are launching our fundraising bid at our AGM on 7th May.

There are new photographs uploaded to the Friends of Magdalen Green Flickr site of the green that you can access here.
