West End Weekend!

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of calling by the Family Fun Day organised by City Church at the Friary on Tullideph Road and good to see so many local people there.  A couple of photos from the event are below.
 
Later on, it was good to chat to the residents of the Kelso Street area, who kindly invited me along to their picnic near the Rose Garden at Victoria Park.

Community BBQ

I had the pleasure yesterday of calling by the community barbeque in Kelso Street organised by the residents of Kelso Street, Kelso Place and Jedburgh Road and was most grateful for the kind invitation.

It was another great example of community spirit in the West End so many thanks to Sarah and her neighbours who organised the day!

Kelso Street, Kelso Place, Jedburgh Road BBQ

I had a thoroughly enjoyable time yesterday at the community barbeque in Kelso Street and on the Elliot Road playing fields (with the council’s permission) organised by the residents of Kelso Street, Kelso Place and Jedburgh Road and was very grateful for the kind invitation.

It was a great example of community spirit and residents getting together so many thanks to Sarah and the other organisers!

Getting things done – Jedburgh Road

I recently received concerns about road speed in Jedburgh Road.   Residents have mentioned to me their concerns about this, especially given that elderly pedestrians use the street, going to visit at Royal Victoria Hospital.

I raised the matter with City Council road safety officers and have received the following positive response:

“Tayside Contracts re-surfaced this road a year ago and I had discussions at that time to ensure the SLOW road markings were reinstated correctly.
I will arrange to review this street in terms of markings and vehicle speeds.”

I am pleased that this review is being undertaken as I hope this will reassure residents that all steps are being taken to emphasise the need for vehicles to drive slowly and safely in the street.
