Busy Tuesday

Yesterday morning, following a meeting with the Director of Housing to discuss options for council house rent levels for 2015/16, I took part in a 'walkabout' round the Logie area.

The six-monthly walkabouts take place in a number of areas (Pentland and Blackness are other examples) and are a useful way to look at local issues and problems and ensure these are taken up and resolved.

Here's some of issues picked up from yesterday's walkabout:
Overgrown foliage across the pavement in Glenagnes Road to be trimmed
Missing street sign in Glenagnes Street to be replaced
Ownership of untidy ground in Logie Avenue to be ascertained and tidied

Untidy area at side of Glenagnes Street pavement to be tidied
After the walkabout, I attended the latest meeting of the Jericho House support group, a regular meeting at which a number of us discuss fundraising and other projects to support this important facility in the West End Ward, that assists those recovering from alcoholism.   It was a very positive meeting, covering various of Jericho House's activities including charity fundraising.
