Celebrating activities in our neighbourhoods ...

Yesterday, I had the great pleasure of attending a great drop-in event by the Dundee Celebrate Age Network to celebrate many of the activities for older people that take place across the city.    The event took place at the Central Baptist Church in Ward Road.

The guest speaker was Iain Flett, the City Archivist who did a presentation on "Glimpses of Old Dundee from the Archives" and there were many other presentations including Marjory Moore talking about the activities of the West End Curling Club.

The event was really well attended and lunch included a taste of Dundee's meals on wheels lunches - I had chicken fricassee and it was absolutely delicious!    The meals on wheels are provided by Tay Cuisine - the Tayside Contracts catering unit.
