The last time I wrote to you, we were in the midst of World Cup fever…….who would have thought the atmosphere around sport could have got any better?
But, it did……here in Glasgow the Commonwealth Games have now come to a close, and I think you will all agree, an outstanding success for our City. Being lucky enough to see the athletics at Hampden, I can only describe the whole event as “amazing” and what a great sporting event.
I hope you have been lucky enough to spectate at some of the events catching the atmosphere and maybe even lucky enough to have “selfies” with the “celebrities”.
Whilst we are all enjoying some time off work, spectating at the various activities going on around the City and of course our workload, I can advise that as a council we are progressing some of the initiatives I highlighted at the AGM in April:
1. Our digital media skills
2. Working with Young Professionals Committee on the mentoring programme and an exciting new opportunity for our younger member “Young Ambassadors” (more on this to follow)
3. We are also working on a charities awareness campaign – date to be confirmed later this year
I’ll sign off now for another month, enjoy the rest of the summer and I look forward to receiving your comments and indeed seeing you at one of our events.
