This morning, I attended the funeral of Jessie Gault, a much respected long standing resident of Abbotsford Street and committee member of Blackness Area Residents’ Association.   Jessie was a really lovely lady and will be sadly missed.

This afternoon, I met with John Logue, Area Procurator Fiscal for Tayside, and Chief Superintendent Gavin Robertson from Tayside Police about vandalism issues.   It was a very productive meeting and it is good to hear about the effective co-operation between the police and the procurator fiscal’s office on crimes of concern to local residents.

Jessie Gault

I was very saddened indeed to learn earlier this evening that Jessie Gault, who has made a real contribution to Blackness Area Residents’ Association (BARA) over the years and has been a well kent and well respected resident of the Blackness area, has sadly passed away.

The photo (below) from 2006 is of Jessie (second left in green) next to myself at a presentation to BARA by the Lord Provost.

Jessie will be very sadly missed;  a really nice lady who made a real contribution to the community.
