|Trudy McLeay, myself and Ronnie this afternoon|
For the past 15 years, Ronnie Clark has been postman in Hazel Drive, Glamis Terrace, Glamis Drive, Dunmore Drive and surrounding areas.
Ronnie’s been a super, efficient and caring postman – a real part of the community. Ronnie would get the mail delivered rain, shine or snow and would keep an eye out to see that older residents were doing ok in the winter months.
This afternoon, I was delighted to be invited to a large gathering of local residents at a party in honour of Ronnie, to thank him for his many years of dedicated service to the local area, as he moves to a new role at Royal Mail.
Ronnie was really touched by the party in his honour and it was a really kind gesture of the whole local community to recognise their “best loved postman” – as so many residents described him this afternoon.
So … many thanks to Trudy and her neighbours for arranging such a lovely party for Ronnie – and wishing all the best to Ronnie in his new role at Royal Mail.
Last month, following a site-visit with a constituent, I wrote to the City Council asking for a safety improvement for pedestrians crossing Perth Road west of the Riverside Drive junction (near the south end of Hazel Drive).
I have now received the following helpful reply from the City Council :
“We have investigated this matter and produced a small scheme to highlight and sign the crossing making the location more visible to the motorist. This improvement can be implemented when approved, hopefully later this year.”
* A resident pointed out to me that there is inadequate street signage for Hazel Avenue – signs are missing at the junction with Hazel Drive and there is only one, poor conditioned, one at the junction with Perth Road. I reported this to the City Development Department and have received the following response : “The street name plates at Hazel Avenue referred to in your email below will be checked within the next two weeks.
It is unlikely that any replacement signs will be erected by the end of the financial year however those required will be attended to as soon as possible thereafter.”
