Friends of Balgay Spring meeting

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the Friends of Balgay Spring meeting, held outdoors on a beautiful afternoon on Balgay Hill.

In addition to an informative talk from Jay Grant from the City Council's Environment Department on the subject of improvements in Greater Balgay, there was the unveiling of a new plaque at Balgay Bridge (kindly funded by the Hugh Fraser Foundation) and a memorial plaque and bench in memory of the late Dr Hilda Spear.    Hilda was for many years the Chair of the Friends of Balgay and passed away a year ago.

It was good to see such a good turnout at yesterday's event - some photos below :
