Last night, I attended the April meeting of West End Community Council at Logie St John’s (Cross) Church Hall.
Following on from my meeting in February with John Logue, Tayside Area Procurator Fiscal, and Chief Superintendent Gavin Robertson of Tayside Police, at which we discussed tackling vandalism, John and Gavin spoke last night to the Community Council on this issue, the work of the Procurator Fiscal and co-operation between the fiscal service and the police.
It was a very useful presentation, followed by a lively question and answer session. The community council also discussed a number of other local matters including parking, the impending opening of Riverside Nature Park and tenement factoring.
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.
