Community Spirit Action Group - walkabout

Last night, Community Spirit Action Group, the community group for the "north" part of West End Ward, covering Tullideph, Ancrum, Pentland the Cleghorn area and surrounding streets, held a walkabout across part of its area, and I was pleased to take part, alongside Community Spirit's office-bearers.

The idea of the walkabout is to look at local issues and then follow them up with the appropriate council department or other organisation to achieve repairs and improvements.    We highlighted a number of issues that the group's Chair has already followed up with the responsible department or organisation.

Here's some examples below:
Overgrown area in Blyth Street

Trip Hazard - Lawrence Street

Graffiti - Rosebery Street

Damaged street sign - Lawrence Street
