I have been actively involved in shaping and taking part in the Environmental Action Group East Renfrewshire (EAGER) as I have already said before but it is progressing now. This is a new company/project that is aiming to improve all thing environmental within the ER boundary. It is similar to what I am aiming to do here but more localised and in an area that is keen to improve and fast. Website and the likes available imminently.
So far I will be a committee member and my dad will be the CFO so we are keeping it in the family. It's been a difficult start for the project but it's getting better by the week and soon we may be incorporated.
As far as I have been led to believe I will be advising within my SGP role so any projects that come to fruition will also bear our logo to show we are all working as a community.
Some more huge news for us is the inclusion of two new bloggers and contributors to the company! Yay us!
The first is Douglas Dewey. Doug is an amazing guy with a hell of a lot to draw experience from. Not only was he a professional cyclist, which puts this unfit ecogeek to shame, but he has also got vast experience of travel blogging with his partner. They have recently toured the Caribbean and North America for nine months. If you fancy a peek at their blog then go here but be prepared to be very, very jealous. I know I was when I read it.
Doug also wrote an extensive blog about his long and amazing professional cycling career which you can have a wee peek at here. His partner and he are currently in the transition of moving to Glasgow from down south and his profile has been put up on our Meet The Team page. Here's a peek at his blog from Cycling Weekly.
A wee while ago I was contacted by Stuart Anderson, as mentioned before, about writing for us too which is about to kick off. He is an inspirational guy with some of the best chat you'll come across. He is currently moving to Wales to study so will be blogging on his experience and remotely for us. He has also just completed a long course on Permaculture which I will draw on enormously if I am allowed as it's something I find fascinating.
Stuart has also travelled a lot, has a keen interest in Northern Soul and has even travelled across the USA with his dad hunting for rare tracks. On top of this he lived in Australia for a long while and is currently embarking on the West Highland Way.
Writing this has made me realise I should take the SGPup for a long walk before I head to Dublin for the weekend. I also plan to look in to sustainable practice in Ireland's capital while I'm there so it won't be purely for beer and rugby. Let's hope Scotland can win too!
Anyway, I best be off.
Have a great weekend everyone.
