Happy Birthday Paton’s Lane Sheltered Housing!

Last month, the Abertay Housing Association sheltered housing in the Paton’s Lane area (Paton’s Lane, Baltic Gardens and McGonagall Square) was 30 years old.

With thanks to Angie Stevenson, Scheme Manager, here’s a couple of photos from the 30th Anniversary Party.   Angie adds, “Everyone had a great time celebrating this happy occasion!”

Playparks, Street signs …

As readers of the West End FOCUS will be aware, I have recently raised the issue of playpark enhancements. I have now been advised that a cyclical inspection/maintenance/safety check was carried out at the Roseangle playpark on 2nd July and is about to be carried out at Victoria Park’s playground. I have asked for detail of any work undertaken or enhancements considered as a result of these.
Pleased to note that the street signs for McGonagall Square and Abbotsford Street I had asked be replaced some time ago (click on headline to view original story) have now been promised for mid-August. This has taken some time to resolve but, having been given the list of streets where replacement or new signs are being provided, these are just two locations out of many across the City. I would add that I have, following residents’ requests, asked Abertay Housing Association if it can make arangements to clean the “Baltic Gardens” sign within the sheltered housing quad area.
