Perth Road bus services #dundeewestend

As residents will be aware, Xplore Dundee has unfortunately now confirmed it will press ahead from Sunday 13th January re-routing Service 5 up Glamis Road and Dickson Avenue and away from Perth Road west of Glamis Road.
 
I will continue to press Xplore to think again over this change as it disadvantages a large community in the western end of Perth Road.
 
However, in better news, the Stagecoach Service X54 is now stopping on Perth Road at Millbay Terrace and Clayhills Grove, meaning that – at last – there is a stopping bus service on Perth Road west of Ninewells Avenue.

Distracted by Christmas

Tomorrow – Friday 14th December – and on Saturday :
 
Distracted by Christmas – at Platform Arts, Riverside Drive.
 
An original comedy with the highs and lows of Christmas – the lists, the shopping, the baking, the cooking, the decorating, the expectations … the distractions that can overwhelm and overtake the real meaning of Christmas.  
 
Come prepared to laugh!
 
It starts at 8pm and is free of charge but reservations recommended by emailing info@newscottish.org
