Friends of Balgay Autumn Meeting & AGM

The presentation at the Friends’ AGM yesterday
I was delighted to attend the Friends of Balgay Autumn Meeting & AGM yesterday afternoon at the Mills Observatory.
 
Liz Houghton from the Scottish Wildlife Trust gave a fascinating talk about urban wildlife, complete with a superb photographic presentation.
 
Its always a good sign when the turnout requires extra chairs to be found for all the attendees!    
 
I wish the Friends of Balgay committee every success in the forthcoming year.

Busy Saturday!

Yesterday, I was delighted to attend the Summer Meeting of the Friends of Balgay that took place at the Mills Observatory.
 
Robert Law of the observatory gave a very interesting presentation on the history of the observatory, followed by a tour.

I was also delighted yesterday to attend the Pennycook and Sinderins Courts Sheltered Housing Coffee Morning at Pennycook Court – and, despite a little rain, was very well attended with excellent stalls – see photo below :
