A guid Hogmanay!

Auld Lang Syne


Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?


CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!


And surely ye’ll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I’ll be mine,
And we’ll tak a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!


We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou’d the gowans fine,
But we’ve wander’d monie a weary fit,
Sin auld lang syne.


We twa hae paidl’d in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
Sin auld lang syne.


And there’s a hand my trusty fiere,
And gie’s a hand o thine,
And we’ll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang syne

Hogmanay Celebrations Grant Scheme

From the City Council :
 
Dundee City Council has allocated money from its Common Good Fund to continue its grant scheme to support groups that wish to organise community events to celebrate Hogmanay.
 
Applications are invited from Dundee based community groups and cultural organisations which are planning to organise non-commercial celebrations to mark Hogmanay. The celebrations do not have to be on Hogmanay itself, but can take place between Saturday, 29th December 2018 and Thursday, 3rd January 2019.
 
This year, we are particularly looking for applications that :
 
– Involve a wide range of the local community
– Give a sense that it is Hogmanay that is being celebrated
– Have the potential to develop community spirit and additional joint activities going forward into 2019
 
The application form can be found at www.tinyurl.com/hogmanay-dundee or requested via email to Paul Davies paul.davies@dundeecity.gov.uk.
 
The closing date for applications is Sunday 30th September, and the decision making group will then meet in October.

A guid Hogmanay!

Tuesday meetings – Hogmanay 2015 and schools consultation

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of attending a meeting at The Shore, organised by Dylan Gowans and Reece Denyer, about having a Dundee Hogmanay 2015 event.   It was a productive discussion and a summary of the meeting can be found on the Dundee’s Hogmanay Facebook page here.
 
Well done to Dylan and Reece for taking the initiative – I’ll be helping in any way I can in the months ahead.
 
Tonight, I attended the consultation meeting at Harris Academy on the proposal to close Menzieshill High School at the end of the 2015/16 academic year and include the Menzieshill High School catchment area within an expanded Harris Academy catchment area.   The full proposal can be read here.
 
I listened carefully to all the views put forward by parents, pupils and others attending the meeting tonight and am pleased to speak with any resident at any time about this important issue.  My surgery details can be accessed here – or call me at home on 459378.

Latest on Hogmanay Celebrations in Dundee City Centre

The Weather Won’t Halt Dundee’s Hogmanay

Dundee’s Hogmanay celebrations will still go ahead whatever the weather, said a spokesperson for City Centre & Harbour Community Council today.

Three years ago when bad weather knocked out many events, the North Carr Lightship was almost the only place in the country where the planned celebrations actually happened! Fireworks may not be possible but the music from Skelpaig and Sheena Wellington and the famous midnight foghorn will go ahead

The Family Ceilidh, featuring the Cameron Kellow Group, at Meadowside St Pauls Church Hall and the Church Service are, of course, cosily under cover. Tickets for the Ceilidh, price £6.50 (£4 concessions) are available from Cornerstone Cafe, Nethergate, phone bookings on 01382 202121 between 10am and noon & 2pm and 4pm.

A decision will be taken on Sunday as to whether the Lantern Parade will go ahead and the local radio stations will be informed.

” We have battery operated lanterns so rain won’t put them out” said the spokesperson. ” and we did choose a route that was as sheltered as possible but obviously if there is heavy rain and high winds it would neither safe or comfortable to parade.”
