    Councillor Update Nov-Dec 2023

    Wishing you and yours an enjoyable and restful period. I know the days can be dark right now, physically and metaphorically, with all the challenges in the world. But as I said to our wonderful young people at the Youth Sustainability Forum, pictured here, let’s stay hopeful and take comfort from the small and bigger positive action happening all around us if we look. Doing something directly ourselves to sort problems will help too and make you feel better.

So why is it that the UK and Scottish Governments are pushing ahead with these schemes?…

    Councillor Update, March / April 2023

It’s a great time to get out and about more and enjoy the spaces and places on our doorstep in East Kilbride East.
