I have received a complaint that the penguins statues outside Discovery Point are in need of being spruced up. I asked Dundee Heritage Trust who own them if they could have some work done to improve things.
The Heritage Trust has responded positively as follows :
“The penguins are indeed the responsibility of Dundee Heritage Trust.
Due to the severe weather in the winter the penguins paint coatings have suffered serious damage and are need of a complete rub down and repainting. This work has now started and can only be completed when the weather conditions to allow for the paints to cure correctly.
We are as concerned as your complainer about the state of the penguins and will complete the work as soon as possible.”
As can be seen from the photo (above right) taken last night, painting has already started.
