Business meeting of the Pentlands Neighbourhood Partnership last night. Not the most exciting of affairs but necessary in making sure that ongoing work is progressing satisfactorily and that relevant items are included on the agenda for the next public meeting. I've asked for a report on how the move to fortnightly refuse collection is going to affect our area. It was an integral part of the Administration's budget last week but there was a distinct lack of detail on how it will be implemented. Monday night I attended and spoke at a meeting of the Co-op Party. Useful discussion about the Council budget and the wider picture for public services in Scotland and the role of co-operatives and mutuals. Credit Unions are another much overlooked resource that can be turned to if you've lost faith with the big banks, and who hasn't ???
