Jings, crivvens, help ma boab!

Not sure I ever thought I would get the chance to use these words in a 'clerky' work context. I guess blogs allow this!
You may have seen the muckle agenda which was published today for next Tuesday's truly bumper PPC meeting. 62 petitions on the agenda which must be some sort of record. I don't know why but that number has triggered the 'famous' chant circa 1974 World Cup-
"6 foot 2, eyes of blue, big Jim Holton's after you!"
Anyway, I will be overloading on finest Arabica before the 2.00 pm start to keep me going.
Fergus, Clerk to the PPC

Well done Ryan (again)!

Well done Ryan from all at the Public Petitions Committee. Ryan won at the Pride of Britain awards last night in London. Looked a bit lost for words at one point! Here's a photo of Ryan and his family with PPC members (John Wilson and Robin Harper (on left) and Bill Butler and Rhona Brankin (on right)) receiving his invitation to the awards ceremony a few weeks ago from some tall bloke (don't know who he is). Fantastic achievement Ryan and well done to you all.
