Friends of Balgay Autumn Meeting & AGM

The presentation at the Friends’ AGM yesterday
I was delighted to attend the Friends of Balgay Autumn Meeting & AGM yesterday afternoon at the Mills Observatory.
 
Liz Houghton from the Scottish Wildlife Trust gave a fascinating talk about urban wildlife, complete with a superb photographic presentation.
 
Its always a good sign when the turnout requires extra chairs to be found for all the attendees!    
 
I wish the Friends of Balgay committee every success in the forthcoming year.

Busy Saturday!

Yesterday morning, I had the pleasure of visiting the West End Tennis Club in Shaftesbury Road to speak with committee members and some of the parents whose children attend Saturday morning training sessions.   
 
It was good to discuss the club’s future plans with the committee and great to see the enthusiasm of all in promoting tennis in the area.

In the afternoon, I attended the Friends of Balgay Summer meeting which took place at the Mills Observatory.  There was an excellent and informative presentation by Dr Kenneth Baxter of the University of Dundee on ‘Old Dundee.’   You can read more about Friends of Balgay here.
