I knew this job would be different when, on my first day, I looked out the window of my office and a deer went running over the fields.
This morning I got an invite to the Mother and Toddler group to say ‘hello’. I hope the image of me talking over the munching of their tasty toast doesn’t stay with the kids for too long!
I still get a thrill when a promotional campaign ‘hits the streets’ rather than in my head. The primary school have been kind enough to put out the flyer and have now confirmed the date we can consult the kids on what they would like to see in Kirknewton. People want to get their hands on the poster and I could probably make a small fortune selling ‘I Love Kirknewton’ car stickers and T Shirts. Hmmm, maybe we don’t need the lottery funding after all!
The Herald and Post printed our announcement about the consultation. MSP Angela Constance will pop by on the 6th February too, which is nice.
I believe there is now side betting on how many people will turnup on the day of the consultation! Come on Kirknewton, don’t let me down! Get your voice heard on the day or Vikki and I will be chasing you down the street and knocking on your door at all hours of the day!
