Tuesday meetings - Hogmanay 2015 and schools consultation

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of attending a meeting at The Shore, organised by Dylan Gowans and Reece Denyer, about having a Dundee Hogmanay 2015 event.   It was a productive discussion and a summary of the meeting can be found on the Dundee's Hogmanay Facebook page here.

Well done to Dylan and Reece for taking the initiative - I'll be helping in any way I can in the months ahead.

Tonight, I attended the consultation meeting at Harris Academy on the proposal to close Menzieshill High School at the end of the 2015/16 academic year and include the Menzieshill High School catchment area within an expanded Harris Academy catchment area.   The full proposal can be read here.

I listened carefully to all the views put forward by parents, pupils and others attending the meeting tonight and am pleased to speak with any resident at any time about this important issue.  My surgery details can be accessed here - or call me at home on 459378.
