The West End Community Council on Tuesday evening had two excellent presentations – one from Digital UK on the analogue TV “switch off” due in Dundee in 2010; the other from West End Tennis Club on their project to improve the club facilities. The Club has given me an update sheet on this which you can read by clicking on the headline above – and you can read more by going to the Club’s website at : www.westendtennis.org.uk
Last night, the “Community Spirit” group – to campaign for the Pentland, Tullideph, Ancrum and Cleghorn area (and surrounding neighbourhood) – held its first AGM and was formally launched, at a well-attended meeting in the Mitchell Street Centre.
It was great to see the enthusiasm of local people who are keen to get an active community group going for the area to help tackle local issues in the north part of the West End Ward – just as West End Community Council does so well for the southern part of the ward. City councillors, the Police and others are keen to support the group in its activities in the months ahead.
Also yesterday, I spoke with Mrs Latif, following the robbery at her newsagents in Lochee Road earlier in the week. The local community is shocked at another incident of this type in the area, and very concerned for Mrs Latif in particular. I have contacted Tayside Police to ask for the use of mobile CCTV units in the Lochee Road area, which I think will help reassure the local community.
