Lurker now a poster
.. .. ..Thats me, normally I just lurk about the board, but thought id actually start posting.
Usually have something to say about most things, as regual listeners to talk 107 drivetime show will know. I used to be a regular caller on Simon and Heathers show. I also used to be a prolific letter to the editor writer in my home Borders, been living in Porty for two years now though.
A bit of info on me, just to bore you, im 24 originally from the Borders. I work for the City Council in the all singing, all dancing Services for Communities Department (in the Housing and Regeneration division). IM a member of the Labour Party, Amnesty International, Friends of the Earth and Scottish CND. Used to be really active with these organisations but not so much now that I live in Edinburgh.
Ive always shown an interest in the Community. Aged 20 I was elected to be Chairman of a 15 member Community Council. Soon after I was made Chairman of a residents association on a 1500 home council estate. I sat on the local area committee of the Scottish Borders Council which dealt with local planning matters, and everything related to local Council services. As a former young persons development worker I worked with partners such as the NHS, SIPs and funders (lottery etc;).
Thats about it really.. .. .. ..I shall bore ye nae mare
