Last night, it was a great pleasure to attend the 2016 Sheila Tennant Awards evening, that took place in Dundee West Church.
Sheila was a very old friend of mine, who passed away in 2013. It was typical of Sheila's generosity that she left a substantial legacy to Dundee West Church, her own parish church, and the church is using a generous part of the legacy for the awards to benefit local good causes and projects.
The Awards night – the second year of the awards - was again excellent – the photo below shows the Harris Academy Pipe Band piping in guests at the commencement of the evening – and congratulations go to the Hot Chocolate Trust, Togs for Tots, Dot Dig and the Lochee Music Group, the winners of the 2016 awards :
Earlier in the day, I participated in a photocall in Perth Road's shopping area at which the Lord Provost, West End councillors, local businesses, Scottish Water, their contractors and West End community representatives marked the welcome return of the Perth Road and Nethergate shopping area to 2-way traffic after the completion of this section of Scottish Water's infrastructure works.
I am pictured below with two of the volunteers from the Perth Road Shelter shop after the photocall :
