Thanks for the links Ann. You'll see of course that I make use of your really informative links on WGD's site which I'm sure are making a positive difference. Even more converts? I've been trying to find the full 2020/2021 ScotGov report that covers all plans including those for Indyref2. Any chance you could point me in the right direction Ann or have I missed it on here?

Morning Petra. Is this what you were looking for?



Not having a good morning. Severe problems with internet so there may be no links for next few days 

Thanks for that Ann and sorry to hear that you're having problems with the Internet. Hopefully it'll be resolved real soon.

Thanks again for the links Ann, sorry to hear of your internet problems. Ours has been hellish slow for about three weeks now, it's can be so frustrating at times.

Your doing a great job and very much appreciated.

Hello @marie-clark. Good to hear from you again. Hope all is well.
