Wednesday activities

Yesterday, I had the great pleasure of attending the 10th Birthday celebrations at Dundee's Maggie's Centre (see photo right).

It was a hugely well-attended event, marking an important milestone for Maggie's, which provides vital emotional, practical and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends.

Maggie's Dundee was designed by Frank Gehry and was opened in September 2003 by Sir Bob Geldoff.

Later yesterday, I called by the Great War Dundee's Open Day at the Wellgate Library.   It was good to speak to many of the participants - a whole host of organisations from the Black Watch Museum to the Friends of Dundee City Archives.   You can find out more about the Great Ward Dundee Commemorative Project here.  The photo (right) shows part of the Black Watch Museum's display.

Also yesterday, I participated in the City Council's Scrutiny Committee, at which I asked questions about the speed of response to complaints to the council and an internal audit report.
